What a find Golly Farm Cottages (and Mandy!) has been. We visit relatives in this part of the world fairly regularly and came across Golly Farm by chance. We have never stayed anywhere that has been so well appointed – every need is catered to, down to the extra luxury of an electric blanket on the bed – and Mandy went out of her way to make us feel at home. The welcome tray of goodies (most delicious lemon drizzle cake) even included a bowl of treats for our dog. We stayed in the Studio which is beautifully kitted out and having such a lovely cottage to come back to at the end of the day make our few days even more enjoyable.
The cottage was very well furnished and fully equipped.
It is in a tranquil, rural setting but Chester is easily accessible as is the main road across North Wales.
Nothing was too much trouble for Mandy, the delightful owner.
Mandy gave us a really warm welcome,even a homemade cake waiting in the kitchen for us.
Our cottage was wonderfully clean and very well appointed and the towels and bed linen were beautifully laundered.
Really looking forward to our next break there.
I have stayed at Golly Farm Cottages on a few occasions now, including work trips, for varying lengths of time. It really is a wonderful place to stay and is situated in a tranquil rural location, yet is still so accessible for visiting many other places. The beds are so comfortable (almost makes it difficult to get up in the morning) and what a great surprise to find electric blankets on the beds too, I never knew what I had been missing all these years!!
Mandy has literally thought of everything and is so helpful, yet not intrusive at all. The cottages are well equipped, light and airy and very comfortable and cosy, so great for rest and relaxation as well as using as a base for work or sightseeing. The WiFi is also excellent. The little patio areas in from of the cottages are a real sun trap on a sunny day with lovely views over the fields. The surrounding lanes of Golly Farm Cottages are also lovely to explore whatever the season, and some great little walking routes right from the doorstep as well. I even started bringing my bike, as it’s a really lovely area to explore on two wheels! Thanks Mandy.
The farm is very prettily situated surrounded by fields, but handily located for both the coastal and inland places of interest. The cottages are very comfortable and well-appointed. Mandy is most helpful and a generous host, her baking is delicious. Golly farm is a very relaxing and attractive place to stay and offers excellent value for money, which is a bonus!

From the moment you drive through the gates of Golly Farm Cottages you start relaxing. The location is surrounded by beautiful countryside and the first thing that you are met with is just how attractively presented the cottages are. The grounds are well kept with beautiful floral displays during the spring and summer months, paths are swept and clear of unnecessary ornaments etc. There are dedicated picnic tables and chairs overlooking the adjoining farmland, ideal for an early evening glass of wine, and often friendly sheep or cattle to keep you company.
We have stayed several times in either Holly or Oak Cottage and have always found them both to be ideal for a ‘home from home’ break. On entering the property you cannot but notice how well presented they are. You have simply everything you need waiting for you. They are undoubtedly the most well equipped self catering accommodation you could wish for and both spotlessly clean. The lounge, kitchen, bedroom and ensuite are all spacious and well equipped making the cottages comfortable and homely.
In easy travelling distance are the beautiful City of Chester and the town of Wrexham. Local shops and several pubs and restaurants only a short drive away.
The Welsh coast is in reasonable travelling distance too where there are numerous towns, villages, bays and beaches to explore.
But the ‘jewel in the crown’ for us is if you venture out to the local countryside where there are numerous villages, stately homes and beautiful scenery to explore.
Try a ride out to Llangollen and the Horseshoe Pass nearby. After a stroll around Llangollen, park near the Ponderosa Restaurant at the top of the pass and explore the stunning scenery on foot. After your walk pop into The Ponderosa for good homely food at a very reasonable cost. A homemade ham cob with a portion of chips go down very easily after a bracing countryside walk. Oh and don’t be put off if there are lots of motor bikes or a classic car or two parked there. The bikers are mostly of ‘pensionable age’ and just love their bikes. The bikers will love to have a chat with you if you show interest in their ‘Pride and Joy’.
All in all a great location.
What about your host? Well you will not find a better host anywhere! Mandy warmly greets you on arrival and ensures that you are comfortable and have everything you need, she then fades into the background and does not intrude into your privacy in any way. She is however close by should you need anything and is always available via her mobile phone should you need her urgently.

The accommodation was perfect for our elongated stay due to house move,the cottages were modern well equipped and cosy during the winter months.The location was ideal for exploring the local area for all Wales has to offer,Chester(the park and ride is a must).The Grosvenor at Pulford was our go to Sunday lunch/dinner carvery,plus other numerous good pubs.
Mandy went far beyond being a normal hostess,her friendly attitude along with her delightful spaniel. The welcome pack including fresh eggs,cake and Mandy’s helpful local knowledge,nothing was too much trouble.
We found it hard to leave it was so comfy,couldn’t recommend our stay highly enough.
Chris and Wendy
Beautiful accommodation, spotlessly clean, with high end furniture, fixtures and fittings, providing a very comfortable stay. Everything we needed was to hand. There is a lovely seating area outside with great countryside views and ample parking.
Homemade cake, fresh milk, free range eggs and dog biscuits were a lovely touch on arrival, but the best reason to stay at Golly Farm is the owner- Mandy!
Nothing is too much trouble for her and she will make sure your stay is perfect. You will definitely want to return and we always look forward to going back there.
