Jacksons Boutique Garden Centre, Trelawnyd

Jacksons Boutique Garden Centre
Jacksons is more than just a great garden centre. It has a very nice cafe, where you can relax with a nice hot cup and cake as well as a fairly large gift shop.

Gift shop actually does not do it justice. They sell all manner of unusual arts and crafts, furniture, quirky jewelry, clothes etc. The shop is great for finding an unusual gift.

At Christmas, santa`s grotto is especially well done and kids will love it. The selection of plants is fantastic and the staff are very knowledgeable.

Nant y Ffrith Woods activity header

Nant y Ffrith Woods, Treuddyn

Nant y Ffrith Woods
A nice walk through wooded valley on the border between Flintshire and Wrexham, if you can find where it is! Privately owned, the landowner allows public access, however as there are steep drops and quarries in the woods it is important to stick to set paths, which are clear and well made. There is a three-tier waterfall in the woods, which is the largest in the area, halfway down the gorge, hidden amongst the trees; however access is poor and paths to both the bottom and top of the falls are narrow, steep, uneven and slippery.
