Gwenoldy (Swallows' Rest)

Visited by Tripadvisor
Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Caerwys, Flintshire, North Wales, Wales
Gwenoldy (Swallows' Rest in Welsh) is a luxurious cottage, converted from an 18th century stone-built barn. Its setting is spectacular, with glorious views across a secluded valley.

We are in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and enjoy a wonderfully peaceful lifestyle.

Gwenoldy offers every comfort, from a woodburning stove to broadband internet access, for up to four people. Children are welcome.

Snowdonia, Chester and the North Wales beaches are close at hand, and local amenities include excellent pubs serving good food, a crafts and antique centre with a popular restaurant, and many country shops and sporting venues.

We enjoyed our week so very much! Gwenoldy is the most comfortable cottage: well equipped, a lovely greeting cake and wine in the fridge, fabulous views, very relaxing and an excellent location for exploring very interesting things: the owner provides a book with superb suggestions...More
