Waen Y Ffynnon is beautifully positioned in a very secluded setting on the upper slopes of a narrow valley of the Clwydian Hills about1.25 miles from the hamlet of Pentre Coch and approximately 5 miles from Ruthin. The house is also within 0.25 mile of the Offa's Dyke footpath which runs along the top of the Clwydian Hills. In the neighbouring village of Graigfechan, which is approximately1.5 miles away, there is a local pub and restaurant. The owners have undertaken a recent programme of modernisation and refurbishment which has included a combination of double and triple glazed windows. The two properties are designed to take full advantage of the splendid rural views particularly in a westerly direction, and both are highly appointed. The accommodation is versatile, as the barn conversion in particular can provide an ideal entertainment room with a high vaulted ceiling and galleried landing, together with one bedroom self-contained accommodation, ideal for a dependant relative or letting as a holiday cottage. The 12 acres of grounds and gardens can only be appreciated upon inspection, with stunning views in every direction.
