Description

This heaven on earth sanctuary with private hot tub and holistic treatments on site is perfect for that special romantic occasion or celebration, or indeed if you just want to flop and drop and get away from it all. Situated in the wonderfully stunning Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it is also perfect for walkers, cyclists, birdwatchers, wildlife lovers, artists, photographers, spa lovers, yogi’s and yogini’s! Beehive Cottage enjoys an idyllic, peaceful location and is set in stunning scenery that no photograph can do justice. This detached, former stable has been lovingly transformed into a beautiful holiday sanctuary and the owner, a holistic therapist, has paid attention to every detail to ensure that visitors experience the same sense of well-being that her clients enjoy from their treatments. The open-plan living area with a cosy wood burner has full width patio windows from which to enjoy the lovely views that surround the property, so even on a rainy day you can bring the outdoors in. The comfortable and beautifully presented bedroom also has patio doors that lead directly out onto the garden. Complete with several seating areas, a private hot tub and a barbecue, the garden is the perfect place to unwind and relax. There is even a herb garden so that guests can pick their own herbs to cook with.

Beehive Cottage is located in the Denbighshire village of Bodfari, which is within the Clwydian Range Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Ideal for walkers, you can access the Clwydian Way directly from the property grounds, and Offa’s Dyke footpath is just a quarter of a mile away. Beehive Cottage is also in an Area of Archaeological Interest, with the ancient hill fort Moel Caer being close by. The medieval market town of Denbigh with its castle is just five miles away. Here you will find walking tours which take you around the town and castle. This is also a great place to stock up on the essentials. Other market towns worth visiting include Ruthin, 11 miles and Mold, 12 miles. Bodfari, where the cottage is located has a small shop, which is also an art gallery and a cafe, and two pubs offering great food, one of which offers take-out food, both within a mile.

Whilst Beehive Cottage enjoys the idyllic rural location with 360° views of open countryside and rolling hills, the coast is also very accessible, and the beaches of Rhyl, Prestatyn and Talacre can all be reached within a short drive. Other places of interest within a short drive include St Winefride’s Well, nine miles, Llangollen, 28 miles, the Victorian seaside town of Llandudno and the Great Orme, 26 miles. National Trust’s Bodnant Garden, 25 miles, and Erdigg, 28 miles, are also worth a visit. Snowdonia is accessible from here and can be reached in around 45 minutes via the scenic Denbigh Moors.

About the local area

Llandudno is one of the largest and most popular of the Welsh seaside resorts, and still retains much of its Victorian character and charm. The golden sandy beach at North Shore is set in the magnificent crescent shaped bay, flanked by Great Ormes Head and Little Orme, with Llandudno and its elegant promenade lying protected between the headlands.

Llandudno offers its visitors good shopping, with a modern shopping arcade discreetly designed to blend with the traditional surroundings. The North Wales Theatre on the promenade is a new 1500 seat theatre, where West End shows and the Welsh National Opera perform. Throughout the area you can experience the local culture at eisteddfodau, festivals and concerts and hear the famous Welsh male voice choirs.

For sporting enthusiasts Llandudno offers a Leisure Centre, Ten Pin Bowling, Tennis, Dry Slope Skiing, Golf, and on and off shore Fishing. For something different there is American floodlit Harness Racing at Tir Prince Raceway.

Colwyn Bay, just along the coast is another popular destination. The long Promenade follows the vast sweep from Old Colwyn to Penrhyn Bay and gives easy access to the wonderful beaches, pier and harbour at Rhos-on-Sea all joined by a cycle track allowing exercise and fresh air to be taken together or you can stroll along the beautiful unspoilt promenade with its wide walkway, and enjoy some refreshments at the kiosks situated along the way. There are also separate slipways situated along the promenade for fishing, sailing, and jet skiing.

Both Colwyn Bay and Rhos-on-Sea have shopping areas and are close to the renowned Welsh Mountain Zoo, several golf courses and plenty of places to walk and climb. Snowdonia, the Isle of Anglesey, castles and National Trust properties are all close by. The area also boasts a leisure centre at Eirias, gardens, bowling greens, tennis courts, and an athletics stadium.

While exploring the North Coast you will come across the beautiful town of Conwy set on the Conwy River Estuary, dominated by the majesty of Conwy Castle. Fine views can be seen over the harbour and Snowdonia forms the backdrop to this medieval walled town. It is no surprise that today Conwy is designated as a World Heritage Site. The massive fifteen-foot thick walls guarded by twenty two towers stretch for three-quarters of a mile around the town, making Conwy one of the finest walled towns of the medieval period. Today visitors can still walk the Castle walls, enjoying views around the town and Harbour.
