Halkyn Castle Wood
We’re ideally located in NE Wales, just off the A55 westbound at Halkyn within an hours drive of Manchester, Liverpool, Snowdonia and Llangollen, and we’re on the edge of the Clwydian Range Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Perfect for fabulous days out; explore castles, go walking, try paintball, discover welsh villages and markets… so much to do and a whole season to do it.

Our family live, work and play in Halkyn Castle Wood.
We create woodland spaces to nurture healthy trees for wildlife and for our visitors to play, contemplate, be mindful and have fun.
We love nature and music and fires and festivals and lovely people and hope we bring the best of all of that to our visitors.
We are excited to be opening three gorgeous woodland belltent escapes this autumn and have been working to create a stunning wildflower and woods wedding space that will be available from Spring 2021.
We’ve missed our Castlewood Rocks tribe this year and can’t wait to jump around with you in 2021, whilst raising awareness and money for MIND.
Come and join us

The woodland was part of the Halkyn Castle Estate owned by the Duke of Westminster. It is a mix of native deciduous and planted conifer wood with the estate-addition of laurel and rhododendron (great for dens!).
This area is amazing for walking, running and exploring; with the Iron-age hillfort and mote & bailey remains on Halkyn ‘Mountain' within a 30 minute walk. There you can enjoy incredible views of the Dee Estuary and beyond to Liverpool and Blackpool and Moel Famau, the Clwydian Range and Snowdonia to the south.
The historic villages of Halkyn and Northop are located about 2 miles away and are packed with history. Nearby towns of Flint, Holywell and Mold are within 6 miles. Discover Flints' impressive Castle, the healing well and farm park of Holywell and the best Market around in Mold on a Wednesday and Saturday.
Public transport from Halkyn and Northop is regular to all towns.
There are also great places to eat, play golf, explore and have adventures.
As much as we want you to explore the hidden gems nearby, our location on the A55 is incredibly convenient for the fabulous visitor attractions of the rest of North Wales and the North West of England.
