Rosemount Barn, is a beautiful holiday cottage in North Wales. This recently converted Grade II listed building dates back to the 18th century.  Inside, all is warm, cosy and peaceful.  Originally used as a blacksmith’s barn, today it offers all the comforts and conveniences you’d expect of a modern holiday cottage.  There’s room to sleep five with a double bedroom, a twin room and a single bed. And of course, there’s free Broadband.

On the Ground Floor:


The kitchen is  fully fitted and includes

  • electric oven and ceramic hob
  • fridge/freezer
  • dishwasher
  • microwave
  • washing machine/dryer
  • table to seat five or six people
  • good range of pans and crockery



The snug is a cosy place to relax in the evenings. It is furnished with:

  • sofa, a padded stool and an armchair
  • log burner
  • LED TV with Freeview and internet access (so you can catch up with programmes you missed, via iPlayer!)

Bedroom Two:Twin room

  • two single beds
  • dressing table
  • wardrobe.

The mezzanine above has one single bed, chest of drawers, hanging space, desk and TV with built-in DVD.
The bathroom has a bath with thermostatic shower, washbasin, heated towel rail and WC.

On the First Floor:

Double bedroom

Bedroom One has:

  • double bed,
  • chest of drawers
  • dressing table
  • wardrobe

The second bathroom has a thermostatic shower, washbasin, heated towel rail and WC.


The garden is private and secure and is surrounded by the original stone wall and fencing. There’s a patio area with a table and seating for six and there’s even a BBQ.   We have secure storage for bicycles and a place to dry muddy boots and wet clothing (for the odd day when it rains in North Wales).

Now, it can get cold here in Winter but we have fully controllable under floor heating on the ground floor and toasty radiators upstairs.  And we provide you with a basket of logs for the log burner! So, in all weathers, you’ll feel cosy and cosseted.

Please note that due to the nature of the stairs (they’re a bit steep for little ones and we wouldn’t want any anxious moments) the mezzanine at Rosemount Barn is not suitable for children under five. The Barn is suitable for babies and we can provide you with a high chair and travel cot.

There is plenty of off road parking next to the Barn.

As with all public places in Wales, Rosemount Barn is strictly non-smoking.  Small well behaved dogs are accepted as long as they are not left on their own.

About the area

View of the Dee Estuary

View of the Dee Estuary

Rosemount Barn is in the village of Old Halkyn Hall, part of the Halkyn Conservation Area.  On the edge of Halkyn Mountain, there are stunning views of the famous Dee Estuary, the Wirral and beyond.
The A55 Expressway is very accessible so we are within easy reach of all of North Wales, Chester, Liverpool and Manchester.  Conwy and Llandudno are only 30 minutes away,  Liverpool and Manchester Airports are an easy 50 minute drive and Anglesey can be reached within an hour.  Within an hour of Rosemount Barn, there are enough castles, mountains, beaches and attractions to keep anyone happy.  Or you could sit in the private garden and just relax.  Then wander down to our local pub for food and a quiet drink.

But if you do want to be active, you’re spoilt for choice.  For climbers and serious hikers, Snowdonia is easily reached in an hour.  Offa’s Dyke is a bit easier and a lot nearer.  There’s golf at Holywell and Mold, mountain biking in the Clwydian Range and horse riding nearby.
