A place just for the two of you, The Coach House at Maes y Coed is romantic and inspiring, halfway between Snowdonia and Chester
Please note that the minimum stay for this property is 2 nights
In the North Wales village of Afonwen, The Coach House at Maes y Coed is a heritage property dating back to the 1500s, with quite a story to tell. These days, it’s an intimate bed and breakfast with some delightfully luxurious touches – and within striking distance of Snowdonia, Anglesey and, just across the border, Chester.
How does your own private hot tub sound? As The Coach House is a one-room bed and breakfast, you will have that baby all to yourself. It’s all part of a mammoth three-year restoration which has confirmed boutique status on this B&B near Offa’s Dyke.
Perfect for a romantic weekend or as a base to explore the great outdoors, your room comes with free Wi-Fi and Netflix. A gorgeous double bed and antique furnishings give it a homely feel, and the large luxury bathroom with eye-catching double sinks and a shower big enough for two is a reason to visit in itself.
A Grade II* listed building, the rest of the house has some features of note too – check out the original Jacobean staircase from the 17th century. Original wooden beams and even a waterwheel remain – your hosts have looked into the history of the house and may be able to shed more light on any interesting details you find. It is believed that William Penn, founder of Pennsylvania, once lived in the house.
You will enjoy an excellent breakfast at The Coach House, with croissants, omelettes and cooked options on the menu. The local area has many pubs and restaurants which come with a recommendation, such as The Piccadilly Inn, Dinorben Arms and The Cherry Pie Inn. The nearby Afonwen Craft & Antique Centre has a great restaurant attached too.
The Coach House is within around 20 minutes’ drive of the North Wales coast, and towns including Rhyl and Prestatyn. There are 23 castles to explore in the region, with Conwy and Caernarfon among the most well-known, and walking the Clwydian Hills and Offa’s Dyke trail is surely another must.
Like things more mountainous? You can reach the mighty Snowdonia National Park in around 40 minutes, and on its western edge you will find the famed Italian-style village of Portmeirion – a 20th-century creation but an intriguing, inspired one. Cross over to England and spend the day in Chester, where the UK’s most popular zoo draws the crowds. There’s also great shopping and no shortage of Roman history, not to mention bars and restaurants by the dozen.
All this and more awaits you at The Coach House at Maes y Coed, so don’t miss out on staying at this very special place.
