    About this property

    A delightful detached cottage overlooking the Clywdian Mountain Range and surrounded by natural beauty, with footpaths and bridleways on the doorstep.

    Situated along a quiet lane just 1 mile from Caerwys which is located within the Clwydian Mountain Range aonb, Donadea is a delightful 19th century detached holiday cottage. It combines quaint charm alongside all the home comforts one expects from a holiday home. Additional features such as free wi-fi and games console make this ideal for families with children. The owner is a qualifed ’Bob Ross’ oil painting instructor and classes are available to book directly with the owner. The cottage has its own garden and patio area but guests can also enjoy the owner’s grounds which include 3 acres of orchard, kitchen garden and formal gardens. With stunning views over the Clwyds which can be glimpsed from the full length window that presides over the staircase, it is the perfect rural escape. The area offers some great walking and cycling opportunities with direct access from the doorstep onto public footpaths and for those that prefer to travel by horse back, there is also a local bridleway. Other activities available locally include golf and fishing or for the more adventurous, Bala Lake which is within an hour’s drive offers various water sports including sailing, kayaking and white water rafting. There are plenty of tea rooms, antique shops and farmers markets in the area and the craft and antique centre at Afonwen (2 miles) is worth a visit. The popular market town of Mold and Denbigh are both within 9 miles.

    "We spent our first family holiday here with our 3 month old and we couldn't have picked a better place. The cottage is beautiful with everything you need, and the gym is an added bonus. The hosts are lovely and very accommodating; they are there if you need them but also give you privacy. They even arranged a cot and baby bouncer which was very useful. We would definitely go back again!"

    "Tony and Wendy have created a wonderful cottage for a relaxing “home from home” experience. It has all you would want from peace and quiet with stunning views while only a few minutes away from the A55 and all that North Wales has to offer. Tony and Wendy were extremely helpful without intruding in any way. We will be booking a return visit before too long."
    Cathy ‐ 6 Nov 2018
    "Would love to say it was terrible to stop others from going, as it's so brilliant a home from home I worry that it will become too popular and we wont be able to get in. Cottage has everything you need, except possibly a bread knife and Wendy and Tony are such wonderful welcoming hosts. We love the cottage and it's always good to go back - this is now our fourth visit and our 5th is already booked!"

    "The cottage was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. Tastefully decorated, very comfortable. The owners who live in the main house alongside the cottage were very welcoming and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble.Highly recommend this property, one of the best we have stayed in."

    "We spent an amazing week at Donadea Cottage. Was just what we needed, Excellent value for money will 100% be returning in the future. Cottage is kept to a very high standard and Tony and Wendy are such a lovely couple, nothing was too much trouble. Our boys loved running round the grounds and feeding the hens. My 5 year old cried as he didn’t want to leave. One of our most favourite holidays to date 😊"

    "Amazing cottage and lovely owners. Couldn’t have asked for a better holiday- our 5 year old cried when we left."
    Pam ‐ 6 Jul 2018
    "The holiday was lovely, Wendy and Tony made us very welcome. The cottage was set in the lovely surrounding of their property, they have made and keep the gardens beautiful.The cottage was immaculate and very well equipped, we wish we could have stayed longer. We would recommend it to anyone.Robert and Pam"

    "A property that fully deserves its 5-star rating. Everything done to the highest standard. Made to feel very welcome by the owners who were always available if needed but didn't intrude into your space."

    "Immaculate holiday cottage and wonderful and attentive hosts! Couldn’t have asked for more!"

    "Wonderful stay! The cottage is beautifully decorated and feels very homely. The kitchen was very well equipped and the cottage was exceptionally clean. A very special thank you for the all the extras for our young daughter - travel cot, high chair, stair gates and box of toys."
    Elizabeth ‐ 30 May 2018
    "We had a wonderful week's stay at the cottage. The weather was brilliant as were the hosts Wendy and Tony.'Donadea' was probably the best cottage in which we have stayed for facilities and was furbished to a high standard.Will probably revisit soon."
    Paul ‐ 8 Apr 2018
    "You won’t be disappointed! What a beautiful cottage with possibly the nicest, most helpful couple I have ever come across whilst away.The cottage itself is so well looked after and has everything you could possibly want there. If I ever have the pleasure of visiting North wales again I shall be staying here."
    Ruth ‐ 4 Jan 2018
    "One of the best cottages we have stayed at. And super owners - very thoughtful e.g. really good Xmas decorations and walks info provided.Would like to see it in Summer !"
