This generously sized, boutique cottage for couples sits on the edge of private woodland in the grounds of a 15th-century manor house, close to the rolling hills of North Wales. Pheasants Retreat could just as well be named after the local deer and badgers, but you get the idea – this a country hideaway that's all about relaxing amid the undersold rural charms of Denbighshire.

It's a longhouse-style, stone-and-slate cottage, with an open-plan flow through the building. It's lovely and light where it needs to be, with pale ceilings and dormer windows, while the decor tends towards the genteel, country-house end of the spectrum – leather sofas, attractive rugs, fabric cushions and a really handsome wooden bed with crisp linen and rich throws. The bedroom looks out onto the garden through French windows, while a smart, earth-toned bathroom has both walk-in shower and bath. The reading room is a nice touch, a cosy library space with a great chair and overhead reading light. The lounge, meanwhile, is a 'wow' sort of space, under oak beams, with very comfortable leather sofas, a huge wall-mounted TV screen, and log-burner. There's also plenty of room to work in a fully equipped country-style kitchen – cottage for couples it might be, but there's no tight squeeze anywhere in the house.

The same generosity applies outside where a paved and grass garden has loungers and huge hot tub on one side, and a covered outdoor lounge beyond – think cushioned rattan seating, candle chandelier, and a great wood-burner for cosy nights under the stars. We're pretty sure you could stay put for the week, and just enjoy the peace and quiet, but the location is fabulous for anyone wanting to explore this part of North Wales. There's a thatched pub just over a mile's walk away for a start, and it's only a ten-minute walk to the local river, which warms up enough in summer for wild swims and riverbank picnics. The seaside is half an hour's drive away – Llandudno is a good target – or it's the same distance a nip across the border to the ancient city of Chester, for some great restaurants and shopping, and one of the best zoos in Europe. Probably give the pheasants a miss, though – you've got plenty to spot back at base over a sundowner drink in the garden.

Perfect in every detail

We had a wonderful week at the lovingly presented Pheasant's Retreat, set in a peaceful but convenient countryside location within a short drive of the Clywdian Range, Offa's Dyke and the charming town of Denbigh. The cottage is completely private, and has obviously been designed with great passion and love by Di & Pete with some great design touches. Decorated in a tasteful, luxurious country house style, they've thought of everything inside and out. We especially enjoyed soaking in the hot tub under the stars and snuggling with cosy blankets beside the outdoor log burner! Everything was immaculately clean, and there were lots of little extra touches which made it even more special. We can't recommend it highly enough and can't wait to go back.

Wonderful !

We recently had a 4 day stay here. It was incredible. Everything immaculate and spotless. So quiet and peaceful. The best bit was the hot tub. It has a secluded garden and a 5 seat hot tub. It was good weather and we sat out in the tub looking up at the stars with a bottle of wine. We are definitely going back.
