Mold chateau / country house description

The property is a Grade 1 listed Jacobean Manor just inside Wales, near Chester, and about a mile from an attractive market town.

The house consists of an oak panelled central hall, complete with family portraits, for general entertaining with a drawing-room and dining-room off it. There are four double bedrooms and four bathrooms on the first floor with a further three double bedrooms with two bathrooms on the second floor to accommodate up to a total of 14 guests.

Jacobean Manor is very much a family house providing you and your guests with a unique type of weekend, or stay, in unusual historic surroundings and complete privacy.

Interior and Grounds:
The house contains seven large bedrooms, all of which have their own adjoining en suite bathrooms. A feature of the top floor is the large entertainment area in the centre of the floor below the original oak roof beams. There is also a lift available to the first floor. All bedrooms are finished to a high and exacting standard. There are Italian Frette linen, duck feather pillows & duvets as well as bathroom products for your comfort. Our kitchen is located beyond the Dining Room and is fully-equipped with an oil-fired Aga and a Rangemaster electric cooker. Guests have the option of using our kitchen to prepare all their own meals, including breakfast.

The manor is approached down a tree-lined drive and is surrounded by some 100 acres of land belonging to the Estate to provide complete privacy. There are 3 acres of garden within the house's surrounding stone wall, while beyond the Llettai, there is a Victorian walled garden, also facing south, with a central lawn. Beyond that is a 17th century barn likely to be converted into a further family house in due course. The land around the house leads down to the River Alyn which is also ideal for displaying birds of prey, one of the outside activities that can be arranged here.

We can also arrange clay pigeon shooting and will provide all the equipment including pigeon traps, clays and cartridges, as well as guns, if required. This has become an increasingly popular activity for our guests.

For larger groups of up to 18 there is also a cottage within the grounds that is available for hire in conjunction with the main house. Please enquire for prices.

                                          The house sits at the end of a long private drive, just outside a market town (1 mile away), and is surrounded by its own land to ensure complete privacy. It is a 25-minute drive from Chester, 45 minutes from Liverpool (European Capital of Culture, 2008) and an hour from Manchester. The nearest railway station is Chester, from which direct trains to London (Euston) take 2¼ hours. The house is well served by Liverpool and Manchester airports. Taxis can be arranged to collect guests from railway stations or airports, as required.

                                          North Wales has a wealth of visitor attractions, buildings of historical interest, areas of outstanding natural beauty and leisure activities within easy driving distance from the Estate.

                                          We recommend you consider a selection of activities that we can arrange for your party within the grounds, for example:

                                          - Massage and holistic treatments.

                                          - Clay pigeon shooting - a number of guests may shoot. The keeper will charge a fixed fee of ??250 for the morning or afternoon and will provide the cartridges and clays, at cost.

                                          - Displays of Falconry arranged through Cheshire Farm Falconry, at approximately £70 per hour.

                                          - Archery Events - we can arrange an archery party supplying all the equipment and targets. This will be provided and will involve a charge of approximately ���300-350.

                                          - BBQ - a 4-burner gas BBQ is available in a cottage in the house grounds. Also, there are garden seats and tables with a large parasol in the cottage, a refrigerator and cooking equipment, plates and glasses.

                                          - Pheasant shooting in season for up to 8 guns arranged on the Estate land. This will require reasonable notice so as not to conflict with existing set shooting dates. The normal bag will be up to 100 birds.

                                          Outside the Estate, there are a number of attractions that you may like to consider visiting within easy driving distance. These are principally in North Wales and some ideas are provided in our information provided to Discover North Wales.

                                          In particular, we draw your attention to the Clwyd Theatre in Mold, only 3 miles away, where you can see live theatre or current film releases. Ask us to let you know what is on during your proposed visit or we can send you the theatre's current quarterly programme.

                                          About: Simply Chateau was set up in 2003 after two old school chums enjoyed a fantastic holiday with friends in a French chateau in the Dordogne. Oliver & Ravi, the two directors of the company, were amazed at what terrific value these stunning chateau rentals represented and decided to spread the word. Soon after the website was born. Today we deliver a wide range of luxury villas, private chateau and charming farmhouses throughout France, Italy, Spain, the UK and the Caribbean.
