Guest Reviews


    • “Absolutely Wonderful!”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “This cottage is absolutely wonderful. Every room was tastefully furnished and so very comfortable. There were so many extra little touches that made our stay so enjoyable. Daisy my brown Labrador especially enjoyed the tray of dog biscuits waiting for her! We relaxed from the moment we arrived Bev and Phil the owners were so very helpful and their beautiful dog Annie and cats Will and Flossy were a joy. Not forgetting the sheep waiting for you at the bottom of the garden! (Behind a fence). It is such a relaxing location and so close to great dog walks where you are more then likely going to be the only ones there. We did not want to leave and will most certainly return. The place is so beautiful and I look forward to returning in the Spring or Summer. Do not hesitate in booking this cottage, it really is outstanding.”

Bev, Phil and Annie the dog gave such a warm welcome with a bottle of wine and sweeties. They provided all the little extras that made the holiday perfect. Beautiful walks nearby and many pubs that serve good food. Can't wait to go back!”

    • “The owners Bev & Phil are the most welcoming hosts we have met, nothing was too much trouble. Plenty of dog walks in the adjacent woods and a dog friendly beach at Talacre, which is quite rare these days.The property is very high spec with no expense spared. We really enjoyed our stay and the guest book confirms other visitors did too. The privacy of the property also enhances its location. We wouldn't hesitate to visit again and recommend it fully.”

    • “One of the best equipped holiday cottages we have stayed in.The accommodation was excellent and fitted out to a very high standard, the garden was beautiful with a lovely weeping willow and a stream.The owners Bev and Phil who live on the site made us very welcome and thier sheep dog Anne came to greet you when you came back from your days out. Ruthin is a very quaint little country town not far from Chester 25 miles, Llangollen 15 miles, Llandudno 35 miles . The Old Cross Keys at the end of the lane about 10 mins walk serves very good food, it is advisable to book we missed the steak night on the tuesday because they were fully booked”

About the location


Llangollen 12 miles; Bala 18.5 miles; Chester 25 miles; Betws-y-Coed 30 miles.

The hilltop town of Ruthin lies to the north of Llangollen via the breathtaking Horseshoe Pass. The town is picturesque with attractive half-timbered buildings, mainly clustered around St Peter’s Square. There are many interesting shops and buildings, whilst the Nant Clwyd House (the oldest timber frame in Wales), Ruthin Gaol and Ruthin Craft Centre, which houses work by internationally recognised artists and craftspeople, are also worth a visit. Beautiful countryside is on Ruthin’s doorstep with Lake Brenig, Moel Famau Country Park and Clocaenog Forest close by. Further afield, but still within easy touring distance, are the coast, Snowdonia National Park and historic Chester.
