Down on the farm; The animals may have gone,but Abigail Hughes finds Coed Llys has lost none of its charm.

OLD charm meets new conveniences at Coed Llys Farm in Flint. It may be a former farmhouse, but this property has been vastly extended from its original structure to become the spacious five-bedroom home it is today.

In a pleasantly rural location,just a mile from the village of Flint Mountain, Coed Llys Farm is also exceptionally handy for travelling across North Wales and Cheshire,being just over a mile from the A55expressway.

It may no longer be home to typical farm animals,like sheep and cows,but there are full facilities for horses. In addition to four purpose-built stables and tack room, there is also pasture land forming part of the four-acre grounds.

Inside, the 20-feet long lounge lets in lots of light, while the study has an ornate cast iron fireplace and Georgian style double-glazed windows.

With sturdy ceiling beams,exposed stonework and impressive Victorian fireplace, the dining room provides the perfect setting for meals, while the generous sized kitchen-breakfast room has been extensively refurbished recently and includes an old-fashioned Belfast sink,oil-fired range and heavy sandstone carved entrance. Upstairs, the master bedroom, with its vaulted ceiling and exposed purloins, is en-suite withVictorian style bathroom furniture and heated towel rail.

Sought-after Victorian touches area feature of the main family bathroom too, with its free-standing, roll- top bath complete with claw feet.

Outside, when not tending to the horses, there is plenty of space to relax in privacy. As well as a secluded patio, the re is also a large lawned garden.
