This quaint semi-detached cottage sits in the town of Harwarden in Flintshire, sleeping two people in one bedroom.

Old Sorting Office is a charming, character cottage set in the small market town of Hawarden in Flintshire. With one king-size bedroom, this cottage can sleep two people. There's also a lovely bathroom with roll-top bath and separate shower as well as an open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area. Outside, there is an enclosed courtyard garden with hot tub and furniture. Old Sorting Office occupies a wonderful location with amenities on the doorstep, and Chester and the North Wales coastline within just a short drive. A wonderful choice for a romantic getaway.


The Old Sorting Office was perfectly situated for a visitor to Hawarden. It was a short walk Gladstone's Library where I was pursuing postgraduate Welsh history research. It was also a very short walk to the Glynne Arms on the occasions I didn't feel like cooking at the end of the day. The post office and shop next door was extremely convenient. The property was quiet, and very clean and tidy. Plenty of tea, coffee and sugar was very thoughtfully provided along with milk and bara brith. The sofa is not well lit and a reading lamp would be a great advantage. The bathroom was huge but the shower itself was rather small and poky tucked away in one corner.

Just back from a two night stay at The Old Sorting Office. Everything was absolutley perfect, from the directions to the car park, the welcome basket and the useful book of places to go/eat. Instantly felt at home when staying here, the bed is one of the comfiest we have slept in, the dressing gowns on the bed are an added touch of luxury. The bath was amazing also, absolute heaven. With the weather being off this weekend we were concerend about the hot tub (not being able to use it) but it was a lovely surprise to see that it is under a shelter, which the pictures do not show so again an added bonus. We ate across the road at the Fox & Grapes and the food was gorgeous and so reasonably priced. Also ate at the Glynne Arms, again this was nice more of a bar atmoshphere than village pub and i didnt think the menu was as good as the Foz & Grapes, but still lovely. would definatley be back and would highly recomend. The only minor thing was that the grill didnt seem to work when we tried to cook something.

Lovely cottage in an ideal location! Very nice village with a couple of pubs/restaurants, we ate at The Fox and Grapes which had a very homely feel and lovely pub food. Also at ate at the Glynne Arms, which was slightly more expensive. Bus stop very close to the cottage (short ride to Chester). The cottage itself was perfect for a couple. The hot tub was brilliant, spent lots of time in there! It was covered so felt very private. The bed was very comfy and the bath was a nice touch. Plenty of room for two people. Kitchen utensils were very basic, so if you were planning on staying in and cooking that might be a little difficult. Other than that it was great!
