Jacobean Manor enjoys a fabulous countryside location in the county of Flintshire, an area rich in so many ways. With a distinctive heritage, it offers incredible landmarks and the most breathtaking scenery. Flint market can be dated back to 1278 and remains a popular attraction of this pretty market town. The ruins of Flint Castle built by Edward I are still worth visiting. The well of St Winefride’s in Holywell has been visited by pilgrims since the seventh century. It gained a reputation as the ‘Lourdes of Wales’. In Hawarden, St Deiniol’s Library is recognised as Britain’s finest library, having been founded by William Gladstone. Mold is another delight with its street markets on Wednesdays and Saturdays and its Theatre Clywd. The famous theatre was opened by Her Majesty the Queen in 1976 and remains Wales’ major drama producing operation.

Angelsey is an hour and a quarter’s drive from Jacobean Manor via the North Wales Expressway. Here you will find spectacular landscapes, unspoilt coastline and picturesque villages and towns. There are scenic walks along the coastal path, fantastic water based activities and excellent cycle paths. Rhyl, Prestatyn and Colwyn Bay are all brilliant for days by the sea. The Wales Coast path from Prestatyn to Colwyn is stunning. Children love the SeaQuarium and Welsh Mountain Zoo at Rhyl as well as the town’s miniature railway. The Victorian seaside resort of Llandudno at the foot of the Great Orme, is known for its beautiful North Shore Beach and its iconic pier.

Within the Snowdonia National Park, is the mighty Mount Snowdon, Wales’ highest mountain. There are six recommended paths up the mountain, all of which are pretty tough and can take between six and eight hours to get to the top and back. Alternatively, visitors can take a train up to enjoy breathtaking views of the lakes, waterfalls and peaks.

The Roman town of Chester is within easy reach with its magnificent gardens constructed in 1949 just outside the city walls near the Newgate and Roman Amphitheatre. The garden project formed part of Chester’s contribution to the 1951 Festival of Britain. To provide access to the gorgeous River Dee, the gardens were remodelled in 2000. Chester Cathedral was founded as a Benedictine abbey in 1092. It was rebuilt from around 1250 in Gothic style, a process that took roughly 275 years. Chester Racecourse is known as the Roodee, the oldest racecourse still in use in England. With racing at Chester dating back to the sixteenth century, visitors enjoy many fixtures including the Boodles May Festival. Chester’s Roman Ampitheatre is the largest Roman ampitheatre in the UK.

The National Trust’s Erdigg Hall is a popular visit, fourteen miles from the house. It is a fabulous stately home originally designed in 1683. Its walled garden is stunning with rare fruit trees, a canal, a pond and its collection of ivy. Another of the National Trust’s properties, Bodnant Gardens, is also worth a visit. The gardens span eighty acres with Italianate terraces, colourful shrub borders from around the world, a gorgeous waterfall, the Winter Garden, Old Park Meadow, a riverside garden and the Dell.

Golfers and horse racing enthusiasts are delighted by the courses and Aintree being close by. Aintree is the home of the Grand National, one of the most difficult courses to complete with sixteen steeplechase fences. In addition to the Grand National, Aintree also hosts the Topham Chase, the Fox Hunters’ Chase, the Grand Sefton Handicap Chase and Becher Chase. Aintree is also used for motor racing and music events. There is a 9-hole golf course and driving range there too plus other fantastic golf courses nearby.

The local area is brilliant. Deeside Leisure Centre is the national centre for ice sports in Wales, just ten minute’s drive from the house. Children can enjoy the Olympic sized ice pad with ice hockey, curling and disco nights.

Another popular trip is to Zip World where youngsters can soar over the quarry at speeds of over 100mph while enjoying amazing views. Zip Fforest is another activity centre in stunning woodland in the North Wales Conwy Valley, close to the Snowdonia village of Betws-y-Coed. It boasts the Fforest Coaster, the UK’s only alpine coaster of its kind and Europe’s highest giant swing Skyride. Thrill seekers also love Bounce Below which is set in caverns southwest of Betws-y-Coed and takes trampolining to new heights.

Chester Zoo is roughly twenty minutes from the house. It is one of the largest zoos with 125 acres, 21000 animals and 500 different species.

Children love some of the National Trust properties, particularly Penrhyn Castle, its 19th century fantasy castle. The Norman castle also enjoys a formal walled garden, informal gardens, an excellent adventure playground, picnic areas and woodland walks. It also offers the Penrhyn Castle Railway Museum. Penrhyn is set in a gorgeous spot with stunning views over the Snowdonia mountains, the Menai Strait and Puffin Island.
