Ruthin 3 miles; Llangollen 13 miles; Chester 25 miles.
Graigfechan is a small, peaceful village in a delightful part of Wales, just 3 miles south of the hilltop town of Ruthin, which lies to the north of Llangollen via the breathtaking Horseshoe Pass. The village has a pleasant pub which serves quality food, and is used as the start of the Offa's Dyke Walk 5, a 5.5 mile scenic walk along the nearby beautiful Clwydian Hill Range. Picturesque Ruthin has a 700 year old history, boasting attractive, half-timbered buildings, mainly clustered around St Peter's Square, along with interesting shops and buildings and the Ruthin Craft Centre, which houses work by internationally recognised artists and craftspeople, and is well worth a visit. Beautiful countryside is on the doorstep, whilst lovely Llangollen, which boasts the cascading River Dee, renowned for exhilarating white water rafting, and scenic Lake Brenig, Moel Famau, Loggerheads Country Park and Clocaenog Forest are all close by. Further afield, but still within easy touring distance are the coast, the Snowdonia National Park, medieval Shrewsbury and the wonderful historic city of Chester.

Previous visitors' comments about Smithy Cottage:
The cottage was charming and comfortable. The location was excellent, with lots of places to visit and things to see, within easy reach. There is a very good pub in the village, that serves lovely meals.
Mr Clark, Wellingborough, September 2012
We enjoyed the position of the property, it's cosiness and the garden. The kitchen was fully equipped too.
Miss Bird, Neath, June 2012
The cottage was beautiful, cosy and welcoming, well equipped and with everything we needed to make our stay relaxing. It was in a lovely area with many places easily accessible, we had a great time and would certainly stay there again when visiting the area.
Mrs Kerr, Marlow, May 2012
Excellent position of cottage - so much to do in the area. Close to Snowdonia, coast, Port Sunlight. Loved Ruthin, St Asaph, Mostyn Art Gallery at Llandudno. Excellent pub in the village. A good place to be, and we were lucky with the weather.
