  • "We absolutely loved it here."

    We booked for two weeks and then for a further week. The tranquility and views are amazing! We didn’t want to leave. The nearest house/ road is about 150 metres away. The major facilities are tremendous, including guest controlled heating, large flat screen tv, fridge, freezer,washing machine, microwave, oven ,hob, tumble dryer. Many thanks to Ceri for providing such a great experience.. Joe& Dawn

  • "We loved it."

    It was clean and comfortable - but basic. There was no coffee pot, I took my own anyway but I feel it should be standard. It would have been nice to have a few books or games. I appreciate a lot of things were removed post covid. The beds were a dream! The views amazing, the cows a delight. The one easy chair in the conservatory was a bit battered. There were a few lightbulbs that needed to be changed and no mirrors in the bedrooms. But the location and the charm of the place made up for most of the minor niggles. The host was lovely as well - we could not find the house in the dark so had to contcat her quite late.

    Thank you for your review, and the comments. We have now had a couple of new chairs for the conservatory, and there is a mirror in the bedroom. There is also a few board games in the property, and tea,coffee and sugar supplied. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

The property

Llanrhaeadr 2.4 miles.

Surrounded by rolling countryside and views of the Clywydian Range Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the hamlet of Llanynys, Denbighshire, is Rhydonnen Bach.

Built in 1717, this detached cottage makes the perfect rural retreat with family or friends, with character features, outstanding scenery and plenty of home comforts to enjoy.

On arrival, the private driveway leads you to your isolated cottage, where you can truly absorb the wonder of the Welsh hills as you make your way into the property.

Inside, exposed beams immediately add charm to the space, placed throughout the cottage and keeping with the 16th-century character.

The sitting room is home to a TV and woodburning stove, the most inviting place after a day of walking.

From here a wooden built conservatory with striking views offers a space to dine with your loved ones.

Making your way through the property, the kitchen has everything you need for a self-catered stay, including a handy dishwasher to help with the cleaning up, and a quaint breakfast table.

Completing the ground-floor is a shower room, fit for freshening up after exploring your surroundings.

Upstairs you can catch your rest in one of two bedrooms; a dual-aspect, super-king-size bedroom offers a zip/link bed for flexibility, while the triple aspect twin with sofa-bed invites children or friends sharing to admire the surrounding landscapes.

Outside, savour the area with an alfresco dinner from the barbecue with a glass of wine in hand.

If you need to stock up or fancy popping out for a drink, the village of Llanrhaeadr is home to your nearest shop and pub, while slightly further you can find more dining and shopping options in the historic town of Denbigh.

Savour an intimate Italian meal at Vale Street Kitchen finishing off with a drink on the terrace, before exploring the quaint streets, or heading up to view the ruins of Denbigh Castle.

Enjoy a meal and some drinks in one of the inviting pubs nearby such as Drovers Arms Rhewl or the White Horse Hendrerwydd, both within easy reach from the cottage.

With the seaside just a scenic drive away, why not take a day trip to Rhyl, where you can find a quintessentially Welsh coastal experience.

If walking and other outdoor activities are more your style, a longer drive will lead you to the picture-perfect landscapes of the Snowdonia National Park, where an abundance of activities can be found.

A characterful home in an isolated and stunning area, choose Rhydonnen Bach.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

Llanrhaeadr is a charming rural village situated in the Vale of Clwyd in Denbighshire, Wales. Perched between Denbigh and Ruthin, it houses the medieval parish church of St Dyfnog containing a Tree of Jesse window which dates to the 16th century and is described as the ‘finest glass window in all Wales’. Here you can also find a post office, several shops, and a pub, or travel to Denbigh at the heart of North Wales where the stunning medieval structure of Denbigh Castle can be seen as well as the Cae Dai 50s Museum. Take a stroll along the Town Walls and enjoy spectacular views over the surrounding areas; The Burgess Gate, which originally stood at 60 feet, is the main entrance to the old town and offers vast and interesting history. Often dubbed as ‘walker’s paradise’ Denbigh is peppered with trails and even hosts an annual walking festival, with fantastic hikes up to the summit of Castell Dinas Bran, you’ll never be short of a challenge. Well-located here to explore the popular seaside towns of Rhyl and Prestatyn, as well as the bustling City of Chester where the splendid Chester Cathedral and City Walls can be traversed, Llanrhaeadr is the perfect base to begin your adventure.
