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.
All in all we cannot recommend Golly Farm Cottages highly enough. If you want a peaceful, restful countryside break yet close to lots of amenities you will not find better than Golly Farm Cottages.
