Red Lion at Llanasa

If you are looking for a good inn as a base for your waking holiday on the coast near Prestatyn or on Offa’s Dyke North then do consider the Red Lion at Llanasa. The accommodation is in converted outbuildings in the attached yard. Though not spacious, they are quite modern with ensuites and a good heating system. The Inn itself has a large restaurant area with a fairly typical Pub menu. It is well patronised and both the food and the accommodation were excellent value.

The walking routes directly from the Inn were across fields in every direction

Llanasa has an award winning pond

The Church was full of interest with a double nave arrangement
The church contains the tombstone of Lord Gruffydd Fychan, the father of Owain Glyndwr.

The church has close links with Basingwerk abbey and contains this interesting model of the abbey as it was in its heyday
The stained glass above the altar came from Basingwerk Abbey
But the window space was not large enough-so the remaining glass went in the end window of the adjacent nave
