Rossett is a small, peaceful village in the North Wales county of Cllwyd. The village itself looks like something out of a fairy-tale, with a beautiful-looking Rossett Mill turning peacefully against a backdrop of the striking Clwydian Hills. The setting makes it a perfect rural retreat for a fantastic holiday home in Wales. Being located between both Wrexham and Chester it offers an excellent base from which to explore the North Wales coast as well as the beautiful countryside in neighbouring county of Denbighshire.
Converted from a 19th-century outbuilding on a small livestock farm near Rossett and Chester, The Dairy offers comfortable accommodation in a three-bedroom, pet-frieindly countryside cottage that features farmhouse kitchen, spacious sitting room, private patio and access to an indoor games room.
Hen Cottage offers endless entertainment options for kids and big kids alike. The three-bedroom, rural Cheshire holiday cottage near Lley boasts a fully-equipped games room, plus an outdoor play area, all within the grounds of a spacious semi-detached barn conversion which sits on a working farm.
The village’s most popular and interesting landmark is Rossett Mill, a Grade II* listed watermill built in 1588. The building has now been privately bought, but is still occasionally opened to the public for visiting. Another beautiful mill, the Marford Mill, sits opposite Rossett Mill and is now home to the UK’s largest shooting association.
Situated right on the riverside is The Alyn, a country pub offering excellent food and boasting fantastic views of the countryside and River Alyn. Elsewhere in the village is another restaurant; the Machine House, and The Golden Lion; a cosy and welcoming pub serving locally sourced food and ales. Rossett may be a small village, but it does not lack on the choice of delicious food on offer!
The towns of Wrexham and Chester are both close by, with a regular bus service running through the village to both. Wrexham is a historic market town, which has recently been transformed into a paradise for keen shoppers due to its abundance of large retail and independent shops. Wrexham also has the biggest market in North Wales and runs every Monday, a must visit during your stay at Rossett. Similarly, Chester is also steeped in history, with Roman remains and spectacular Tudor architecture as well as an extremely popular Chester Zoo, a particular favourite with the kids, and a race course.
For those that enjoy a spot of golf, the Darland Golf Course is situated between Ross and the neighbouring village of Pulford. The 9-hole course offers stunning views of the Clwydian Hills and Trevalyn Meadows, along with a clubhouse offering some refreshments and a selection of tea, coffee and cold drinks.
