About Lixwm (Licswm)

Lixwm (Licswm) is a rural village in the parish of Ysceifiog, surrounded by the rich farm land of Flintshire, North Wales. Situated on the southern slopes of Halkyn mountain with views over the Clwydian Range.

The village has a well-regarded primary school, a chapel and 17th century, family-friendly, inn with a friendly village atmosphere.


The nearest main town is Holywell with traditional market towns of Mold and Denbigh a little over 10 minutes away offering pleasant venues for shopping, sites to visit and eating.

Historically Lixwm was a former mining village and many miners arrived from the Derbyshire area to mine the area. One explanation of the unusual village name is that the Derbyshire miners who arrived in the village thought the village was pleasant and in their dialect for the period liksome or licksome was an adjective meaning for pleasant.

The area boasts excellent walking, cycling and horse riding, especially with the Offas Dyke and Clwydian Way paths within easy reach, and numerous signed footpaths locally around the village and neighboring villages of Ysceifiog, Rhes-y-Cae and Halkyn.
