Dating back to the 16th century, Bach y Graig is a superb Grade II listed farmhouse which offers spacious and comfortable accommodation which oozes charm and character. Situated on a working dairy farm with the discreet owner living next door, the property has been adapted to provide all the modern comforts one expects from a holiday home, it has retained so many of its period features including slate floors, wooden panelling, beams and an inglenook fireplace complete with the original bread oven and cauldron.
Built in 1567 by Sir Richard Clough of Denbigh, who became rich as a merchant in Antwerp, Bach y Graig was the first building in Wales to be built of brick and its architectural style owes much to Sir Richard’s Dutch associations. His wife Katheryn of Berain, known as the ’Mother of Wales’, was second cousin to Queen Elizabeth. In 1817 the main hall was demolished, leaving the large impressive gatehouse and farm buildings which still stand today. It is the gatehouse which is now the main farmhouse.
To the front of the farmhouse is a large lawned garden with swings for the children and outdoor seating, which is perfect for al fresco dining. Located at the end of a long private driveway, this impressive property is set in 200 acres of fertile farmland which includes a trail through 40 acres of woodland where Edward, the Black Prince once hunted. The property also has private fishing rights on the River Clwyd nearby. Situated within the Vale of Clwyd, which is home to the Offas Dyke path, there are lots of great walks in the area. The mountains of the Clwydian Range, which are a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, can be enjoyed on foot, by cycle or even on horseback.
