The Calf Pen

Nercwys 1 mile. A pretty barn conversion situated in a courtyard, next to the owners’ Grade II listed guest house, part of Pistyll Farm House, one mile from the tranquil village of Nercwys and close to the bustling market town of Mold. Renovated to a good standard and tastefully styled and furnished, this lovely cottage provides a perfect base for a couple wishing to explore the area. The cosy sitting room, warmed by a woodburning stove has comfy seating to snuggle up on, providing a romantic setting for a delightful night in. There’s also a compact, but well-equipped kitchen that has everything you may need, and the king-size double bedroom ensures a good night’s sleep. Why not pop next door to the owners’ guest house and enjoy a leisurely breakfast which will definitely set you up for the day, or in the evening visit the well-stocked bar? Outside there is a good sized, fenced garden with seating, a place where you can unwind whilst enjoying a glass of something cold, watching the sun go down and enjoying a little stargazing into the night’s sky. The village of Nercwys has a pretty green and pub, and within a few short miles you will find Loggerheads Country Park, Moel Famau, Llandegla Forrest and a whole host of country lanes and public footpaths. Only a few minutes’ away from the peace of the hills you will find the market town of Mold with its weekly street markets, magnificent church, shops, tea rooms, restaurants and the excellent Theatre Clwyd. Further afield is the historic city of Chester, which has a host of attractions and has something for everyone. This cosy cottage provides a great base for a relaxing break all year round.
