This brick built luxury cottage adjoining the owner's 15th Century farmhouse near to Bodfari in North Wales sleeps two people.

Set in 30 acres of beautiful grounds, this delightful cottage is part of an award-winning farm at the foot of the Clwydian Hill Range. Located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this property is a brick built cottage, adjoining the owner's 15th Century farmhouse. With access to a heated swimming pool, a wonderful garden and private fishing on the River Clwyd, this lovely home-from-home is an ideal spot for a romantic break, far from the stresses of modern life.

The local area is packed with things to see and do including walks along the Offa's Dyke Pathway, trips to the market town of Denbigh and numerous sites of historic interest. Note: The cottage was voted one of the UK’s top 20 romantic cottages in 2009 by Alistair Sawday for The Times Online.


Ideal New Year getaway
After a loud busy family Christmas, the two of us and dog wanted somewhere of decent quality that's quiet and peaceful. After looking at several places on Sykes site, we fell upon this place and booked. So pleased we did as well. Great communication from the owners prior to our stay. Directions to the place (it's well hidden away) were perfect. The owner was there on arrival to show us around and told us a few places we might want to visit The Prosecco in the fridge for new year a really nice touch. The place itself is largely open plan and very spacious Lovely wooden flooring Large fully equipment kitchen and a Very comfortable 2x2 seaters leather sofa Tv and DVD player as well as a music system. Some lovely wooden stairs to the open bedroom above and a huge super king size bed - really comfortable. Now the bathroom has a superb bath (see pictures on the trip advisor site) Talk about luxury after a 15 mile walk with the dog. I?m 6ft and this bath was ample !! A shame lone shower cubicale as well. The whole cottage was lovely homely abs clean and we will definitely stay when we next venture to North Wales. Highly recommend, you'll not be disappointed

Cosy cottage in beautiful surroundings
I booked Cae Caled for 2 nights on October as we were going to a wedding at a venue close by. We arrived on a very dark and rainy Friday night but were given a warm welcome by the owners who came out in the rain to greet us. The cottage was lit and the heating was on making it nice and cosy for our arrival. A bottle of red wine left on the table for us was a nice touch. The cottage was beautifully finished with solid wood floors, a full kitchen with washing machine and dishwasher, a beautiful wooden spiral staircase and rustic wooden bed frame and a log-burner which had been prepared for us ready to light complete with extra logs and kindling. The cottage was perfect for the two of us and the en-suite bathroom had a gorgeous free standing bath and separate shower. The bed was super comfy and huge so we had a great couple of nights sleep. We couldn't appreciate the setting until daylight the next day but the views from the cottage are of the gorgeous Welsh countryside and I would have loved to have had time to explore- that'll have to wait until next time! Tahnks for a lovely stay- we will be back soon I am sure!

The Perfect Spot for humans and dogs !
Absolutely gutted our week here went so fast. Just absolutely stunning. The cottage and the location and views. So many walks to do and not enough time. Everything you could want for a nice relaxing refresh. Highly recommend taking a hot soak after a day of walking! The owners were great for help and recommendations. We're definitely coming back.. sold Wales to us!!

Romantic getaway
Had a beautiful stay with my girlfriend( now fianc?e) Views were stunning as you can see from one of many photographs we took! This was a superb sunset, and view from a walk up on the hills (can?t remember the welsh name moul fammu?) Cottage was clean and airy in the heat wave and warm in evening. We had a couple of bbq's , the kitchen had all bits and bobs we needed. Bed was massive and very Comfy, bathroom was luxurious. The whole place was decorated with some beautiful hand picked antiques and we loved the staircase!! Very special weekend I popped the question and she said ....YES!!

Peaceful retreat, to re-charge your batteries.
We have a totally wonderful stay , such a bonus to find a lovely dog friendly cottage, the views are picturesque the cottage has a amazing bathroom, if you like a relaxing soak in the evening and a powerful shower for the mornings. The bedroom is large and airy with a massive bed. The owners could not have been any more helpful,and brought us temporary deck chairs as the new outdoor furniture was being delivered the next day. The outdoor swimming pool was a great bonus as the weather was extremely hot. We found plenty to do in the area, lovely towns nearby and some great nature walks. loggerheads country park is only 15mins away, this has long or short walks with a great licensed cafe and gift shop. There is also a fantastic pub close by which serves amazing food and has great views plus is also dog friendly . We are looking forward to our next visit.
