The house contains seven large bedrooms, all of which have their own adjoining en suite bathrooms. A feature of the top floor is the large entertainment area in the centre of the floor below the original oak roof beams. There is also a lift available to the first floor. All bedrooms are finished to a high and exacting standard. There are Italian Frette linen, duck feather pillows & duvets as well as bathroom products for your comfort. Our kitchen is located beyond the Dining Room and is fully-equipped with an oil-fired Aga and a Rangemaster electric cooker. Guests have the option of using our kitchen to prepare all their own meals, including breakfast.

The manor is approached down a tree-lined drive and is surrounded by some 100 acres of land belonging to the Estate to provide complete privacy.  There are 3 acres of garden within the house's surrounding stone wall, while beyond the Llettai, there is a Victorian walled garden, also facing south, with a central lawn.  Beyond that is a 17th century barn likely to be converted into a further family house in due course. The land around the house leads down to the River Alyn which is also ideal for displaying birds of prey, one of the outside activities that can be arranged here.

We can also arrange clay pigeon shooting and will provide all the equipment including pigeon traps, clays and cartridges, as well as guns, if required. This has become an increasingly popular activity for our guests.

For larger groups of up to 18 there is also a cottage within the grounds that is available for hire in conjunction with the main house. Please enquire for prices.

The house sits at the end of a long private drive, just outside a market town that is 1 mile away. It is surrounded by its own land to ensure complete privacy. It is a 25 minute drive from Chester, 45 minutes from Liverpool, the European Capital of Culture, and an hour from Manchester. The nearest railway station is Chester, from which direct trains run to London and take 2¼ hours. The house is well served by Liverpool and Manchester airports. Taxis can be arranged to collect guests from railway stations or airports, as required.

North Wales has a wealth of visitor attractions, buildings of historical interest, areas of outstanding natural beauty and leisure activities within easy driving distance from the estate.

The owners recommend a selection of activities that can be arranged:
- Massage and holistic treatments.
- Clay pigeon shooting - the keeper will charge a fixed fee of £250 for the morning or afternoon and will provide the cartridges and clays at cost.
- Displays of Falconry arranged through Cheshire Farm Falconry, approximately £70 per hour.
- Archery Events - an archery party supplying all the equipment and targets, approximately £300-350.
- BBQ - a 4-burner gas BBQ is available in a cottage in the house grounds. Also, there are garden seats and tables with a large parasol in the cottage, a refrigerator and cooking equipment, plates and glasses.
- Pheasant shooting in season for up to 8 guns. This will require reasonable notice so as not to conflict with existing set shooting dates. The normal bag will be up to 100 birds.

Outside the Estate, there are a number of attractions to consider visiting within easy driving distance. These are principally in North Wales and some ideas are provided for discovering North Wales.

In particular, the Clwyd Theatre in Mold, only 3 miles away, is where guests can see live theatre or current film releases. The owners can provide the theatre's current quarterly programme.

Extras

Oliver's Extras

  • Chef/Cook Available
  • Maid Service Available
  • On-Site Concierge

The house offers complete flexibility when it comes to catering and dining arrangements. For those who do not seek the self-catered option, there is a range of dining options, informal or formal, depending on the requirements including:
- full English breakfast
- pre-prepared, sandwich and picnic menus
- afternoon tea
- formal private dining with chef and waitress service for lunch and dinner

The concept of entertaining family or friends in the privacy of a larger private house has become increasingly popular. The key is the flexibility that this provides. Guests can do their own catering from the house's fully-equipped kitchen or order individual meals from an extensive choice of menus. The menus are based on locally-sourced ingredients and seasonally-available produce. Waitress service is available for all seasonal menus.

The owners can arrange activities for guests or, alternatively, there is a large-screen television located on the second floor for screening TV/Sky/DVDs. A selection of board games is also available in the drawing room. A range of daily newspapers can be provided.

The owners can also offer a range of freshly-prepared, frozen ready meals. These are popular for lunch service and again based on local and seasonal ingredients. The lunches can be ordered before arrival or through the housekeeper. Picnic lunches can also be provided for any outside expeditions. The owners suggest that guests bring soft or alcoholic drinks and do not charge corkage on wines or spirits.

In short, the owners are only too happy to organise whatever dining facilities are required and can provide guests with whatever range of meals they prefer, including breakfast.

Enjoy gourmet dining experiences with our new Chef Service!
We’re now offering our customers the chance to enjoy some unforgettable eats with our new Chef Service! Choose from booking a single sumptuous meal with a private chef for that special occasion, or hire a chef to cook your meals for all or part of your holiday - it’s as flexible as it is delicious.

A) Single Meal Service: A chef will travel to this villa and whip up a fantastic meal for you and your guests. The chef will arrive with all the necessary ingredients as well as the talent to turn them into something unforgettable. They’ll serve the meal and clear up afterwards - an easy and entertaining way to enjoy a top quality meal in your very own villa!

B) Full Chef Service: If you really want to kick back and relax, we can arrange for a chef to cater for the duration of your holiday (or part of it). With a range of options from simple family catering to full-on haute cuisine, we can organise a meal plan and a price to suit your needs. So why worry about self-catering when you can have everything taken care of?

Of course, before booking this service, we suggest you contact the property owner as they might already offer a similar cook or chef service in-house. To find out more simply visit www.oliverstravels.com/chefs.

Event information

The house can provide accommodation for up to 14 family guests while the wedding reception in the summer can be held in a marquee sited in the adjoining walled garden for over 100 guests. All catering and other facilities will be next to the walled garden to ensure a self-contained and private wedding reception.

The property is totally flexible in terms of the organisation and selection of suppliers the couple might need to make this day complete, from marquees to flowers, caterers and limos. In short, the owners want the couple to be able to organise the day as they wish and provide the necessary support.
