    • “Stayed for one week and surpassed all expectations. Lovely welcome from the new owners who have thought of everything to make your stay most enjoyable. A stay here would be lovely any time of year. Plenty of dog-walking in the surrounding area. The Old Barn was very clean and well equipped. On the lower floor the living area, combined with the kitchen and dining area (within the conservatory) give all the room you need for a comfortable stay. A large modern bathroom adjoins the mezzanine bedroom. There is a wardrobe and drawers which provide plenty of storage for clothes. Plenty of clean towels are provided in the bathroom. Radiators are placed throughout the cottage, should you need them. Car parking at the rear of the property. There is also a patio area with seating for outdoor living. This was our first visit but we will definitely return again, and would recommend this property to family and friends.”

    • “The Old Barn exceeded our expectations. It was in a peaceful location in a beautiful setting with terrific dog walks nearby. The owners made us most welcome from the minute we arrived and were very helpful throughout our stay. The cottage was very clean and every little detail was thought of. It was our first stay here and we would definitely visit again. We would highly recommend this property to our family and friends.”

    • “The Old Barn was a great place to stay and the location was ideal for walkers, yet close enough to amenities to be able to go shopping and sightseeing.”

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.
