A delightful whitewashed period cottage set in idyllic gardens in the sought-after hamlet of Whitehurst, near Chirk

The Hollow is an attractive period property, once the local Smithy, and has retained character features including beamed ceilings and walls and latch doors. The property is nestled within sizable established grounds.

The ground floor accommodation comprises a dual aspect sitting room with a feature inglenook stone fireplace with wood-burning stove, space for a dining room table, and views over the front and rear garden, and a light-filled garden room (alternatively a spacious ground floor bedroom) with solid beech flooring, feature bay window and French doors leading out to the rear aspect. The kitchen/breakfast room includes Shaker-style cabinets, a stone fireplace and has external access to the paved terrace outside, ideal for al fresco dining and entertaining. A wet room completes the ground floor facilities.

On the first floor are two well-sized bedrooms, both with built-in storage and garden views.


The garden at The Hollow includes well-maintained rolling lawns and mature specimen plants. It is framed by clipped hedges and shrubs, and has a gentle stream running along the south eastern border.

A generously sized shed is located within the grounds of this property, along with a wood store hidden within the walled boundary.


Chirk, a popular border village, offers a range of day to day facilities including Chirk Station, a GP surgery, church, convenience stores and garage.
