Denbighshire is a county of contrasts, with the popular seaside holiday resorts of Colwyn Bay, Rhyl and Prestatyn being close to some of the most beautiful countryside and spectacular mountain scenery to be found in Britain. Denbighshire is also rich historically with castles and stately homes and its own cultural traditions. House prices are reasonable by national standards and there is a good choice of both state and private sector schooling.
