Situated along a quiet lane just 1 mile from Caerwys which is located within the Clwydian Mountain Range Area of Outstanding National Beauty, Donadea is a delightful 19th century detached holiday cottage. It combines quaint charm alongside all the home comforts one expects from a holiday home. Additional features such as free wi-fi and games console make this ideal for families with children. The cottage has its own garden and patio area but guests can also enjoy the owner’s grounds which include 3 acres of orchard, kitchen garden and formal gardens. With stunning views over the Clwyds which can be glimpsed from the full length window that presides over the staircase, it is the perfect rural escape.
The area offers some great walking and cycling opportunities with direct access from the doorstep onto public footpaths and for those that prefer to travel by horseback, there is also a local bridleway. Other activities available locally include golf and fishing or for the more adventurous, Bala Lake which is within an hour’s drive offers various water sports including sailing, kayaking and white water rafting. There are plenty of tea rooms, antique shops and farmers markets in the area and the craft and antique centre at Afonwen (2 miles) is worth a visit. The popular market town of Mold and Denbigh are both within 9 miles. Other places of interest within easy driving distance include Ruthin with its ruined castle (15 miles), Llangollen (24 miles), the Victorian seaside town of Llandudno (27 miles). Beach resorts including Talacre, Rhyl and Prestatyn are within a half-hour drive and Betws-y-Coed and Snowdonia National Park can be reached in just over an hour. Over the border into England, the historical city of Chester is just 30 minutes by car and Liverpool can be reached in 50 minutes. With so much to see and do in the area, Donadea cottage is the ideal base from which to explore what both sides of the Wales/England border has to offer. Beach 6 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

We had an amazing, relaxing break away. A beautiful cottage with gorgeous views. The owners were super friendly and left us a lovely breakfast basket with Easter eggs for our children. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit and will be booking again soon.

We absolutely loved this cottage. While it is tucked away, the local shop was within walking distance and it wasn’t too far to drive to more tourist-y locales. The cottage itself is exceptionally cosy and it was comforting to be inside during the howling windstorm that hit during our stay.
