The Experience

Built in 1929, this stunning Arts and Crafts style house was designed by the famous architect Sir Guy Dawber who, at the time, was president of the RIBA. It’s a gracious house, large and homely and has a wonderful feel with three spacious reception rooms and five bedrooms so you can all spread out. The formal drawing room has large picture windows, the TV room has a sofa and desk and there’s a study/reading room too.

The hub of the house is the farmhouse kitchen, large enough for everyone to join in – gather round the large island or trot down a couple of steps to the conservatory with its convivial table for meals looking over the garden. You will find a generous welcome hamper which includes Welsh cakes, Welsh butter and jam and a homemade cake. In summer you’ll be eating outdoors on the south-facing terrace, lounging on the lawns or scrumping from the orchard.

Denbigh is just three miles away for shops and restaurants.

We had a wonderful stay at Dolbelidr. The house is huge - with lovely spacious comfy bedrooms, a great kitchen/dining area and adjoining snug. We were 3 families and never on top of each other - the kids had the best games of hide and seek! Fantastic to see the family history and original furnishings throughout. Lorna, who welcomed us, gave us some great tips for local trips and was on hand for any queries we had. So lovely to wake up to the surrounding views of the Welsh countryside. We were there for new year so didn't make use of the beautiful garden but it would be wonderful in the summer.

This beautiful Grade II listed Arts and Craft design home is a hidden gem which wraps you into its embrace. With its stylish interiors and period charm, Dolbelidr has heart-stopping views across its extensive gardens towards the Clwydian Range. With sandy beaches, mountains, and market towns on the doorstep, you won't have to travel far to enjoy the very best that this glorious area has to offer.

Dolbelidr is a truly beautiful property with lots of original features and ample space for large groups of people. There are plenty of modern and updated bathrooms and we really enjoyed the great modern conservatory and the stunning, uninterrupted views of the Welsh countryside and hills from so many rooms. The gardens and orchard are lovely and so well-maintained and there’s plenty of garden furniture to sit and enjoy the gorgeous views. We visited a local craft & art centre/gallery and enjoyed lovely walks from the house - and of course, Snowdonia and Chester are close by.

What a superb stay we had at Dolbelidr, a rural country house set in wonderful Welsh countryside with picturesque views of the Clwydian mountain range. The period house was amazing - so much space and character with a wonderful blend of old family history and modern conveniences. With modern bathrooms, a gorgeous well-stocked modern kitchen leading into an enormous conservatory/dining room and large, beautiful bedrooms, the house had lots of unique spaces and everything you could possibly need for a home-from-home trip away. We had a great trip and will definitely be back soon.

Janine and Jonathan, Lancaster

My stay at Dolbelidr was one of the best experiences I have had for a long time! I was amazed at the beauty and accessibility of Denbighshire - there are plenty of easy walks from the house itself and lovely villages nearby. We visited tea shops, an art gallery and a shopping outlet all within easy reach and we could get to the coast in 20 minutes. Moel Famau on the Clwydian Range is only a couple of miles away - we could see it from the garden! This really is a stunning location, ideal for friends and family get-togethers with a difference.

You're near to grand beaches, historic gardens (Bodnant is a few miles away), castles at Conwy and Denbigh and a good pub/restaurant, The Dinorben Arms.
