Holly View is a self contained 2 bed annex adjacent to our main home, a traditional farmhouse dating back to 1820. It provides an excellent base from which to explore the picturesque sites of North Wales,the historic towns of Chester and Shrewsbury (around 30 mins drive) and the rolling countryside of Cheshire and Shropshire as well as being in easy reach of the bustling centres of Manchester and Liverpool.(just over an hours drive).
Nearby is the World Heritage Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and beautiful LLangollen ( home of the Eisteddfod ) . Cheshire Oaks Designers Outlet Centre is around 30 mins drive. There are relaxing local canal and hill walks on the doorstep Around an hours drive are the seaside destinations of Llandudno, Colwyn Bay and Conway and Snowdonia is around one and a half hours drive.
History buffs can visit Erddig Hall and Chirk Castle ( National Trust properties) both less than 15 mins drive. Food and drink is plentiful with many local country pubs . The CAMRA award winning Bridge Inn is 20 mins walk (sadly an uphill walk on the way back!!) cafes, restaurants and high street and mall shopping are all close by. A mainline train station (Ruabon) is 20 minutes walk from Holly View and a bus stop is 5 minutes away.
Holly View is adjacent to the main house (Brooklyn House) and overlooks the garden and paddocks to the front (we have around three acres) with relaxing views to the woods and the fields beyond. Holly View has only recently been completely redesigned and rebuilt and comprises two bedrooms (one with double bed and one with two single beds that could be put together to form another double). There is a 'jack and jill' bathroom with toilet, hand basin and large walk in shower.
The lounge, dinning and kitchen areas are open plan with french doors leading out to a patio area shaded by the holly tree. A separate entrance door into the kitchen area is to the side of the annex.
There is ample parking for several cars in the courtyard next to Holly View.
As a smallholding we have animals - two (large but friendly) dogs, two cats, ( see photo) geese, chickens and a (not so friendly!) rooster to complete the farming picture we have a very old (1958) Fordson tractor which is still earning its living. The property is bordered on three sides by fields which are usually occupied by lambs and calves.
As a smallholding we have animals on the property all are friendly but having them around may frighten smaller children or even adults who for example are intimidated by large dogs. If this is a concern please contact us to discuss..
We are happy to provide hints on where to visit and brochures of the local attractions
We prefer a minimum stay of 5 nights, however we will consider shorter stays but this would be at an increased nightly rate
