Our posh Bothy is definitely a special place for a romantic weekend away, a marvelous spot to chill out, a great location if you are having an active weekend (some of the best cycling and walking in the area, and of course all the great North Wales adrenaline focused attractions like Zip World and Surf Snowdonia). And sitting under the stars in your own wood-fired hot tub is not to be missed (for your use only!)...let the aroma of the burning wood carry you away to relaxation central! (Firewood for the firepit and the hot tub is purchased on-site, option to have tub pre-heated). The luxurious spa bathroom on the lower level is unique – black slab tiles/stone walls with freestanding bath and even an open fire grate and lots of candles – very atmospheric! There is no internal stairway between the upper and lower levels, but we supply bathrobes so you can comfortably wander the short path (20m) connecting the bathroom, bedroom and garden area. The Bothy is set in the grounds of Cae Gwyn, a lovely Georgian country home and offers so much: sit under the gazebo and drink in the view of the beautiful surrounding hills relax with a glass of wine at the picnic table while you prep your BBQ cuddle up and watch movies (eclectic collection of movies provided... or bring your own favourites!) or recline in the bath & read a book while your partner stokes up the hot tub Short walk to local pub across the fields...craft beers and own gin distillery! We have even included a kitchenette for cooking and late night hot chocolates! (mini fridge, hotplate, microwave, kettle...and all the usual accessories). Why not book now and treat yourself to a few days relaxing, soaking, reading or stream a movie - we are only 1 hours drive from Liverpool/Manchester and 30min from Chester. Email us to find out about our guest information booklet which includes the best local restaurants, fun things to do, special sights only locals know about....and even the gorgeous beach dedicated to St Dwynwen, the Welsh patron saint of lovers (voted by Conde Nast as one of the best beaches in Britain!). Please note: To ensure best quality, only firewood sold by us may be used for the hot tub. A load costs approx £15 and will give you an evenings heavenly soaking in the tub. We include kindling, firelighters and even delicious teatree essential oil too! We also offer a tub pre-heat service! There is a one-off tub usage charge of £5 for your whole stay. There is a one-off BBQ usage charge of £5 for your whole stay. Wood for the log burner/firepit (with marshmallows & toasting sticks!) is £10 per basket. Also available at the same location, our luxury retreat for 2 with own hot tub, see The Hideaway ref 7647226More

About the neighbourhood
Not far from the tiny 'city' of St Asaph is this little village with its tiny school and ancient church. The views into the Vale of Clwyd are stunning and from our property you have gorgeous rural views, a flash of the coastline and the snowy peak of Snowdon. No wonder this is officially designated 'An area of outstanding natural beauty'. Our visitors are often entranced as they drive through the main gates and see the outlook for the first time! Access to all that Denbighshire and North Wales has to offer is easy, whether it be the mountains of Snowdon National Park, the wild coastline, historical sites or the ancient walled City of Chester.
Getting around
North Wales is served by major UK train routes and has an extensive road network including some of Britain's most scenic routes and for those who love a challenging drive, some stunning open roads (including the infamous Evo Triangle). Best of all we are just 2.4 miles from the A 55 so access to all that Denbighshire and North Wales has to offer is easily accessible, whether it be the mountains of Snowdon National Park, the wild coastline, historical sites or the ancient walled City of Chester.
