  • "A beautiful home, lovingly decorated and well equipped for a holiday rental."

    The hosts had very kindly decorated for Christmas - even a beautiful Christmas tree! My family and I had the most wonderful time - cooking in the large kitchen and relaxing in the hot tub! The hosts were very friendly and accommodating which made us feel even more welcome - even their lovely dog Gus! We were absolutely amazed by the views of the Clywdian range and over the fields. Such a wonderful experience, would thoroughly recommend!

    Hello Sophie, Thank you so much for your very thoughtful message and such kind words. It’s just lovely to read your review and hear how much you and your family enjoyed your visit to The Stables. I’m glad we made you feel at home and added a festive touch to your weekend away. Wishing you a very Happy Christmas. From Richard, Lindsay and Gus! Property Owner

  • "Absolutely beautiful."

    Stunning countryside. Cottage was spacious, quirky, clean and the beds were very comfortable. Everything we needed for the weekend was taken care of, even down to tea towels for the kitchen. Hot tub was a massive hit for both adults and children. Nothing too much trouble for Lindsay when we needed to call her. Added bonus was watching Angus the sheep dog rounding up sheep on his own, brilliant.

    Hello Sharon, Thank you for your lovely message and I am so pleased to hear that you found everything you needed to make your stay special, for you and your family. I’m so glad you chose The Stables to visit and for Mike to celebrate his “big birthday” - It’s a lovely place for a celebration. Best wishes Lindsay and family Property Owner

  • "Thank you for a lovely couple of days."

    You are wonderful hosts. What a fabulous place! So big, yet so cosy. Our 13 year old loved the pool table (as did we!) We felt so welcome and warm in your wonderful property and look forward to returning. It was amazing to have your sheepdog Gus accompany us on our walks - he knew exactly where to go!

    Hello Louise and family, Thank you for your kind words. I’m so pleased you felt at home and welcomed during your visit. It was a pleasure to meet you and your family and lovely to hear that you enjoyed the house, especially the games room. I’m so sorry that your break away was cut short due to storm Ciaran and hope that it passed over you without incident. Hopefully you will be able to come back next year and go on more adventures with Gus! Best wishes Lindsay Property Owner

  • "A little drop of Welsh gold!"

    We enjoyed a perfect short stay at The Stables. We were so impressed that we have booked our summer holiday here too. The location is beautiful, the amenities in the cottage effuse love and thought and the host is wonderful but not intrusive. You could not ask for a better stay and we are counting down the days until our next visit.

    Dear Steve How thoughtful of you! Thank you so much for your heartfelt review. It was a pleasure to welcome you and your family to The Stables. I’m so glad your friends also managed to join you, for the weekend. Wonderful news that you have already booked to visit us again in the summer! I know you will have a marvellous time exploring north Wales. Staying for the week, will mean that you enjoy the house and the games room for longer and hopefully get chance to light the barbecue! See you in July. Best wishes Lindsay Property Owner

  • "My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our week staying at The Stables near Ruthin."

    It was simple enough to find using sat nav, and is in a beautiful, remote, location with stunning views and peaceful surroundings. The hosts left a very useful, tasty welcome pack, and were available for help and support if needed. The house was very well equipped for a family stay, and we did not think of anything that was missing or that we needed. The property has many rooms to explore, relax and socialise as you wish, and there's a wonderful selection of books for all tastes. The games room was very popular, the TV was available but never really switched on during our stay. The hot tub was most appreciated, with stunning views to enjoy. We managed to explore/revisit some local towns due to its central location. The pace of life is more relaxed and we found everyone that we met were friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend a holiday here, and would return. Thank you once again Lindsay and Richard, and your friendly sheepdog Gus.

    Hello Michael, Thank you so much for your delightful message about your stay at The Stables. I am grateful of every message and always so pleased to hear what guests have thought about our house and where we live. Its lovely to hear that you and your family found plenty of things to occupy your time at the house and found everything you needed,including the games room and hot tub. It was lovely to meet your little grandson too and I hope he is very happy with his new puppy. Best wishes Lindsay Property Owner

    The house is clean and they have all of the basic amenities and more. We had a fantastic stay and loved the hosts sheep dog Gus who led us on a walk, came for lots of fuss and was a hit with everyone. Overall this was a Great stay, very peaceful but close enough to Ruthin and Wrexham to explore.

    Hello Alexandra, Really lovely to read your thoughts about ‘The Stables’. I’m so pleased that you and your guests had a great stay and managed to explore North Wales.

  • "We had a lovely stay at The Stables recently."

    It is a gorgeous property in a picturesque location and we made full use of all the facilities. Kids loved the games room and to sit out in rathe hot tub of an evening looking out over the hills is really special. Owner was on hand to help if needed, as was the dog Gus who was a massive hit with everyone. Roads in and out are a bit of fun for the car suspension and the absence of any 4G signal makes the satnav obsolete at times but it all adds to the fun! We loved it!!

    Thank you so much for the 5 star review. It was a pleasure to read that you and your family enjoyed our house and made good use of the facilities and soaked up the special view. We are extremely lucky to live in such a picturesque setting. The Stables really is a very special place so thank you for highlighting all its qualities. Gus,our sheep dog is such a hit with all our guests and really does deserve a pay rise, as he is our biggest asset and becomes an integral part of everyone’s holiday! Property Owner

  • "This was such a beautiful cottage, it’s a must to go the rooms are huge and so lovely - you have a great hot tub and all round seating in the garden everybody enjoyed the games room playing pool."

    Every time we left Gus the farm dog would greet us so lovely. The only thing I would have liked is a radio or trying the kitchen with this being the hub of the cottage plus we are on O2 and could only use the phone by the hub. Be careful on the very narrow roads on the way to the cottage.. but it’s well worth the most beautiful views. Oh also great to be greeted by the owner with the keys.

    Hello Judith, A belated Happy Birthday to you! I’m so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay. It was lovely to meet your daughters, as they decorated the house, ready for your celebrations. Glad to hear you were not deterred by our little Welsh roads which weave in and out of the countryside. They are all part of the adventure! Thank you for your suggestion of the radio. I have been looking into a speaker/sound system for the kitchen, as it really is the heart of the house where everyone congregates. Lovely of you to take the time to review ‘The Stables’ - thank you. We hope to welcome you back in the future. Best wishes Lindsay Property Owner

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Stables last week."

    The owners met us on arrival and showed us how everything worked, advised that we could contact them at any point during our stay if we encountered any problems or required advice. We made full use of the hot tub with lovely views over the fields.My husband thought we would be able to walk to the local pub as was about 1,5 miles on the map. This road was quite narrow & not really suitable for walking. We chose to drive to the local pub- The Red Lion, where we enjoyed a lovely meal, can recommend the curries. Many places to visit, we enjoyed Conwy and the zipline at Penrhynn quarry, also Snowdon(unfortunately due to weather we didn't reach the summitt !) We had a lovely holiday in a beautiful cottage.

    Thank you Christine for taking the time to write such a lovely review. I’m so pleased to hear that you and your family enjoyed the house and it proved to be a great base, to visit lots of the great attractions we have in North Wales. I hope you will be able to come back and stay with us again and fingers crossed - reach the summit of Snowdon. I’m working on a magic wand to control the weather! Property Owner
