Ty Newydd y Graig in English means “ new house on the rock” which, in the 1800’s, it was. It is built of limestone quarried from the rock that shelters it, and over 200 years later it remains “as solid as a rock.” The quarried rock face can be seen behind and to the right of the cottage. It backs on to Y Graig, a limestone nature preserve and area of ancient woodland. Until we bought the cottage nearly 60 years ago it still belonged to the family that built it whose descendants live in the village. We hope to continue this tradition.
Because of its unusual, solid construction dictated by the natural rock foundations, the cottage has its quirks, like steps in odd places. The high kitchen step is because the kitchen follows the rock underneath. It would have been impossible to build the kitchen on the same level as the main room. The narrow, twisty stairs are the original ones and difficult for the elderly or those with physical limitations. It is not wheelchair accessible.
Ty Newydd y Graig is a period property that might look old fashioned to modern eyes. The antique furniture is in keeping with the house and has always been there, but otherwise the cottage is well equipped with modern appliances. Its oddities, like unexpected steps, cannot undergo cosmetic surgery so it is important our guests are aware of them in advance.
The property is perfectly placed for walking and exploring Y Graig, or for taking day trips. Snowdonia, Offa’s Dyke, zip-lining and many more adventure opportunities, beaches, shopping centres, and Chester, a lovely medieval city with a Roman amphitheatre are close. Groceries can be delivered by Sainsbury’s, Morrisons etc. The nearest village shops are about three miles away. Shop 5 miles, pub 1½ miles and restaurant ¾ miles.

This is a great cottage in a peaceful and tranquil setting. The Cottage has been furnished in keeping with its time period and is a real gem. The location is well situated to explore North Wales. Myself and my family had a wonderful week in this cottage.

Lovely cottage just the high step up to the kitchen far to steep. Furniture needs to be updated, getting a bit tired now. Very steep drive to climb upto the cottage. But really a nice place to chill & unwind.
