The Cottage was a peaceful haven for me and my dog. There are beautiful views from the Cottage and one can walk down to the river through the fields.

Very relaxing and very quiet with good walks on the doorstep. At one with nature and not far to Chester or the coast, and fishing on the lake in the grounds.

Superb location with fine views and easy access to hill walks. The Cottage was a real treat, lots of character, spacious and tastefully decorated.

Lovely setting, our son and dog loved the surroundings. Gorgeous comfy bed and massive bath. Really cosy and comfy place to relax. Great location for exploring the Welsh coastline and hills.

Everything we wanted for a relaxing break.

Cottage was great as a base to explore North Wales or just to relax in the garden and enjoy the countryside.

The lovely views from the cottage and the peace and quiet. The owners dog was good company too.

We enjoyed the peace and quiet, and the tranquil, beautiful surroundings - superb grounds. Easy access to rest of North Wales. A comfortable and well equipped cottage. We liked the hospitality of the owners, and that the property was dog-friendly.

Lovely peaceful location.

The owners were present but unobtrusive and very relaxed and friendly. The setting was beautiful and so peaceful. After several years of heartache and difficulties, I returned from my holiday in Cae Caled cottage feeling relaxed and refreshed. It is a haven and one we will return regularly over the years.

Beautiful location and cottage - wonderful owners.

It is a beautiful place in lovely surroundings. The owners, and their dogs, were very friendly. The bed was brilliant, better than ours at home.

The cottage and location were perfect with stunning views and there are lovely walks from the cottage, we didn't use our car all week. Our little dog was made very welcome by the owners and it was a pleasure to have their dogs visiting us regularly.

The position, the wildlife, the gardens the swimming pool, this cottage is beautiful and we would loved to have stayed longer than a week - love it!

The property was located "off the beaten track" but local road links gave easy access to different kinds of attractions.

A very good standard of cottage in a peaceful position, with the opportunity for walks to the river.

We felt ourselves at home. It had everything there, which one needs in the vacation. The cordial owner, was very helpful with the selection of our trips. The ideal place of residence for one vacation in North Wales. We can recommend the house to everyone.

Great relaxing location, lovely and peaceful and very nicely furnished cottage.

A restful place to unwind and relax. Most places you could want to visit were within reasonable reach.

Nice location with scenic views and not to far but far enough from town! Good walks in the local area. We were made to feel very welcome and the fresh asparagus was the best we've ever tasted!

The cottage was set in an idyllic location, thoughtfully designed, attentive, but unobtrusive owners and a good base to go exploring the wonderful area of North Wales and beyond.

This cottage was so perfect, relaxing and romantic I brought my plans for a proposal forward from next year to this week away. The grounds of the farm and the surrounding country side were beautiful and I proposed down by the river, which was the perfect location - and of course she said yes! The cottage could not have been more perfect. The bed is amazing to look at and even better to sleep in!

This property ticks every box you could wish it to. Well situated, comfortable and a delight to stay in.

An excellent property. The owners were friendly and on hand to help, but not at all intrusive. A good area for walking.

Wonderful place. We had a great time.

We had high expectations of this holiday and we weren't disappointed. The cottage was perfect, and in the most beautiful surroundings. Superbly quiet and peaceful, and very friendly hosts. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this cottage.

The location of the cottage was so peaceful. It was our first time to Wales, and we were not disappointed. Loved everything about this holiday, shame we couldn't have stayed for longer.

Cae Caled Cottage exceeded all our expectations. The cottage was perfect, and the owners very welcoming. The location could'nt have been better. One of the best cottages we have ever stayed in!

I have stayed in many of your properties and this was by far the best! Great garden with fantastic views.

We went seeking peaceful relaxation - to lose ourselves for the week and celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary. We found all of this and so much more. We could not have found a more suitable cottage. We will definitely be back.

The cottage was absolutely perfect, definitely a 5 star property. The location was also wonderful with access to so many walks and good pubs nearby. The dog enjoyed the freedom he had in the large garden and surrounding fields.

I can't imagine a better cottage to explore from, it is stunning and very, very well kitted out. It was wonderful knowing that while it was freezing outside we were lovely and warm, stoking the fire inside! Beautiful.

It was very relaxing, beautiful scenery and animals around were brilliant. The owners were very friendly and non intrusive making it a perfect place for two.

Excellent stress free location and accommodation. Ideal place to unwind and well situated for all the tourist attractions.

The location of the property was excellent, down a country lane away from the hussle and bustle of the main roads, which meant it was very quiet and peaceful.

The location of the property was very peaceful and scenic. It was very nice to be able to fish on site and we did catch tea. The dog enjoyed all the freedom in the adjacent meadows.

The cottage was immaculate and the surroundings were lovely. It was a very relaxing week.

Great for a family get together

Stayed in Cae Caled as Covid restrictions were eased so that we could visit family living in Bodfari. My son and family also joined us in another cottage in the grounds. Our four granddaughters thoroughly enjoyed all the outside space and both cottages were very comfortable with beautiful views of surrounding countryside. Cae Caled, in particular, was roomy with a lovely bedroom and adjacent bathroom. The properties stand at the end of a long lane and offer a very peaceful and quiet environment. Ideal for separate families meeting up as there are different size properties. A larger one is currently being renovated to accommodate larger groups. Owners were very friendly and live on site should you require anything. Great position with both sea and mountains a short drive away.

Ideal New Year getaway

After a loud busy family Christmas, the two of us and dog wanted somewhere of decent quality that’s quiet and peaceful. After looking at several places on Sykes site, we fell upon this place and booked. So pleased we did as well. Great communication from the owners prior to our stay. Directions to the place (it’s well hidden away) were perfect. The owner was there on arrival to show us around and told us a few places we might want to visit The Prosecco in the fridge for new year a really nice touch. The place itself is largely open plan and very spacious Lovely wooden flooring Large fully equipment kitchen and a Very comfortable 2x2 seaters leather sofa Tv and DVD player as well as a music system. Some lovely wooden stairs to the open bedroom above and a huge super king size bed - really comfortable. Now the bathroom has a superb bath (see pictures on the trip advisor site) Talk about luxury after a 15 mile walk with the dog. I’m 6ft and this bath was ample !! A shame lone shower cubicale as well. The whole cottage was lovely homely abs clean and we will definitely stay when we next venture to North Wales. Highly recommend, you’ll not be disappointed

Cosy cottage in beautiful surroundings

I booked Cae Caled for 2 nights on October as we were going to a wedding at a venue close by. We arrived on a very dark and rainy Friday night but were given a warm welcome by the owners who came out in the rain to greet us. The cottage was lit and the heating was on making it nice and cosy for our arrival. A bottle of red wine left on the table for us was a nice touch. The cottage was beautifully finished with solid wood floors, a full kitchen with washing machine and dishwasher, a beautiful wooden spiral staircase and rustic wooden bed frame and a log-burner which had been prepared for us ready to light complete with extra logs and kindling. The cottage was perfect for the two of us and the en-suite bathroom had a gorgeous free standing bath and separate shower. The bed was super comfy and huge so we had a great couple of nights sleep. We couldn't appreciate the setting until daylight the next day but the views from the cottage are of the gorgeous Welsh countryside and I would have loved to have had time to explore- that'll have to wait until next time! Tahnks for a lovely stay- we will be back soon I am sure!

The Perfect Spot for humans and dogs !

Absolutely gutted our week here went so fast. Just absolutely stunning. The cottage and the location and views. So many walks to do and not enough time. Everything you could want for a nice relaxing refresh. Highly recommend taking a hot soak after a day of walking! The owners were great for help and recommendations. We're definitely coming back.. sold Wales to us!!

Romantic getaway

Had a beautiful stay with my girlfriend( now fiancée) Views were stunning as you can see from one of many photographs we took! This was a superb sunset, and view from a walk up on the hills (can’t remember the welsh name moul fammu?) Cottage was clean and airy in the heat wave and warm in evening. We had a couple of bbq’s , the kitchen had all bits and bobs we needed. Bed was massive and very Comfy, bathroom was luxurious. The whole place was decorated with some beautiful hand picked antiques and we loved the staircase!! Very special weekend I popped the question and she said ....YES!!

Peaceful retreat, to re-charge your batteries.

We have a totally wonderful stay , such a bonus to find a lovely dog friendly cottage, the views are picturesque the cottage has a amazing bathroom, if you like a relaxing soak in the evening and a powerful shower for the mornings. The bedroom is large and airy with a massive bed. The owners could not have been any more helpful,and brought us temporary deck chairs as the new outdoor furniture was being delivered the next day. The outdoor swimming pool was a great bonus as the weather was extremely hot. We found plenty to do in the area, lovely towns nearby and some great nature walks. loggerheads country park is only 15mins away, this has long or short walks with a great licensed cafe and gift shop. There is also a fantastic pub close by which serves amazing food and has great views plus is also dog friendly . We are looking forward to our next visit.

Not all that we had hoped

The good: • There was a Peahen and two Guineafowl that live by the cottage. They're very tame and a fascinating addition. • The wi-fi was stable with good speed and coverage • The cottage is in a lovely area with amazing views! The bad: • While the decoration is good it feels like a cottage that was decorated well a few years ago and left relatively unloved since then with lots of dust and cobwebs, and lots of light bulbs dead and unreplaced. • The bed was uncomfortable. • The boiler died twice during our stay. The first time it happened we had a very difficult time trying to find someone to help us and when we did they couldn't help and told us to text/call the owners who were abroad. This was all deeply unsatisfactory! • The interesting birds are cool but they do... leave their mark. The outdoor table and chairs were unusable because of this. The owners dogs also contributed to this problem, though not on the table and chairs.

Thoroughly enjoyable stay

Had a lovely week at Cae Caled Cottage. This was a tastefully renovated cottage with ample space and very comfortable. It was a great place to stay, private and we were made welcome including the dog. Would certainly return as very good value for money

Absolutely Fabulous week in beautiful surroundings

A faultless cottage. Clean and well equipped, warm and inviting. Perfect for a week away from it all. Plenty big enough for the 2 of us and our 2 border collies. Lovely garden area for the dogs to run around freely. This area of North Wales is stunning. The views from the patio doors both in the living area and the bedroom are awesome. You are never far from the remote hills, quaint villages, or bustling towns. The cottage is ideally located whatever your pastime may be. The owners were delightful and helpful and have a clear pride in their beautiful property which is immaculate. I have no hesitation in recommending this cottage to anyone. We will definitely return...hopefully soon. Richard & Sue

Idyllic Peaceful Retreat

The cottage is beautiful and well equipped and the location is little short of perfection. The owners are on site and friendly and helpful. If you need to get away and have a complete break then this is the place to go. Take plenty of books and good food and wine, walk the spectacular scenery in the day, light the log burner and cosy up at night. It was a wonderful experience and I shall return.

Cosy, Warm Cottage

A very cosy, warm cottage & a Warm Welcome from Hugh to match ! Set in beautiful, tranquil surroundings Cae Caled is the perfect escape from the hustle & bustle of city life, yet Denbigh is only a short drive away. We took our dog along, he loved roaming safe & free in the fields & gardens surrounding the cottage, Hugh was more than happy for him to do this. We didn't get chance to take a dip in the pool, hardly the weather in October, but we could see the pool would be very tempting during the summer. The open plan design of the cottage was lovely and if the weather had been kinder to us we'd have loved to throw open the large patio doors and sit looking across the fields over breakfast or a glass of wine in the evening. As it was October we chose to snuggle by the log burning fire, we lit some candles and created a home from home - perfect ! As for the bedroom - what a huge comfortable bed, we struggled to leave its snugness especially on one winters morning while we listened to wind & rain beat down around us - the bath is also large & deep and perfect for soaking your aching muscles after a long day walking. The cottage was very clean, homely, warm and perfect to return to after a long day exploring North Wales and everything Wales has to offer. We would definitely return and highly recommend to others ! Thank You Hugh & Linda for providing a much needed relaxing time & Thank You for the drinks you bought us at the Kimnel Arms - a very nice touch and Zac loved the fact they were all so very dog friendly - We found the food & hospitality there was perfect too !!

Comfortable Cottage in Beautiful Surrondings

The cottage was very well equiped for holiday let, and comfortable too. The furniture was in good condition and of good quality, and the bed was really comfortable. The views were fantastic. The owners were helpful and friendly. The dog loved exploring the grounds and the pond!!

Comfortable, relaxing, peaceful and friendly

The cottage is beautifully situated and very well equipped. There are wonderful views from all windows and a great sun-trap outside where you can bask in the sunshine. The owners live in the adjoining farmhouse and were very friendly and attentive. We enjoyed trips to Snowdonia - check out the Welsh Slate Museum at Llanberis (free entry) and Llangollen has plenty of attractions.

Peaceful, beautiful, relaxing.

This is a beautiful cottage attached to the main house and has lovely views of fields and hills from the french windows and bedroom balcony. It's at the end of a long narrow country lane (lots of potholes, so drive very slowly and carefully!) and is so peaceful. The cottage has been tastefully renovated, with a hand crafted wooden spiral staircase and 6ft bed. The owners are very friendly and helpful and we would thoroughly recommend this place if you want a quiet and/or romantic getaway. (Although the guinea-fowl was a bit noisy in the morning sometimes!) Plenty of places to visit nearby, castles, walks etc.

peace and quiet

The cottage is the most perfect place for a romantic get away. The wildlife are very entertaining, chickens, guinea fowl and swans sharing the garden. Even though it wasnt that warm, we were still able to enjoy a swim in the pool. The hosts are about but dont bother you. The bathromm is fantastic massive double bed. Its just a very magical place. Loved it, cant wait to return


A fantastic house in a fantastic area. We feel like home. The quiet feels so good.


What a lovely place to stay, quiet and relaxing and within easy reach of some beautiful sights.
