  • "Comfortable stay with everything you might need provided and excellent communication with the owner."

    We enjoyed sitting in the conservatory and the underfloor heating was a luxury. The hot tub is the best we’ve been in. Quiet and secluded location with some lovely views just on the doorstep. Prosecco and Welsh cakes gratefully received on arrival.

  • "Lovely, clean and well looked after property in a peaceful location."

    You’re well catered for inside the house, comfy beds and a large conservatory with a lovely view. The hot tub in the garden is a great bonus after a long day out and if you’re taking your furry friends, the garden is very secure which gives peace of mind. Only a five minute drive from the village and in a good location to get to other areas if you wish to explore. Communication with the owners is very good and I would highly recommend Plas Cwtta.

    We absolutely love this place. The hot tub is nice and big and the back garden is so spacious and secure, our Newfoundland has so much space to run around whilst we’re chilling in the hot tub. The cottage is always so clean and has everything you need. Thank you. We will be coming back again!

  • "We booked this cottage as a last minute weekend away."

    It was so lovely, very relaxing and the views are amazing. Beds are comfortable and spotlessly clean. Very private and an enclosed large garden for our dog to have a good run in. Loved the hot tub, secluded with fabulous views of the mountains and surrounding fields. Bottle of prosecco on our arrival was lovely too. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing time away from it all but close enough to shops, cafes and pubs all a short drive away.

  • "Beyond amazing!"

    The best holiday home we’ve ever been too. We were there for New Year’s Eve and what an experience. Could see the fireworks from the hot tub, stars at night. The dogs loved it, huge garden which is really secure. Walks all around the house. Really clean and fab facilities. Even left bottle of Prosecco and chocolates. What a beautiful home.

  • "We stayed here in November and we couldn't believe how lovely and clean it was."

    The owners also left us a nice bottle of Prosecco and a cake which was a lovely surprise. The garden was so big and secure so we were able to let the dogs run around whilst we were enjoying ourselves in the big hot tub. The kitchen has everything you need and they also have a fresh coffee maker which was a super bonus for us. The owners were always available if needed and super friendly. There are some amazing walks near by. And the local Indian takeaway is lovely as well. We can’t wait to return at the beginning of March! Many thanks for making our stay so amazing.

    Spacious and well equipped, we really enjoyed our stay. Our dog love the garden and the walks nearby. The humans loved the many local dog friendly places to visit and would recommend the local community pub, restaurant and shop. Back at the cottage there is also the hot tub. What more could you ask for. Will go back and would also recommend the cottage as a wonderful place to stay.

  • "Lovely cottage in beautiful location."

    Plenty of space, garden secure and hot tub great. Only small negatives were having to buy matress topper for uncomfortable king bed and having to vacuum cobwebs throughout (travelling with aracnophobe!).

    Thank you for your feedback and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. Although we have not had any previous feedback on the Kingsize bed we have today replaced the mattress. Regarding our little eight legged friends, they love 250 year old cottages so although the house was cleaned the day before they were obviously a bit active over night. Sorry about this. Look forward to seeing you again soon Kind regards Property Owner

The property

Ruthin 3.5 miles.

This detached holiday cottage is situated down a private lane, a mile from the North Wales village of Clocaenog and just 3.5 miles from Ruthin.

Originally an old shippon, this lovely cottage boasts traditional elements alongside a raft of modern features, including a sumptuous hot tub in the lawned garden.

As you enter through the kitchen, you are immediately struck by the quality of the accommodation.

Walk through into the large sitting room with its fabulous woodburner nestling in a brick fireplace and you know that you are going to feel right at home.

The master bedroom leads off the sitting room, and the family bathroom is also on the ground floor, whilst upstairs are two cosy bedrooms.

At the rear of the house is a large conservatory, which has underfloor heating and from where you can keep an eye on the children as they play in safety on the climbing frame and the swings, in the spacious lawned garden.

Alternatively, sit and relax with a good book as you watch the sun go down, or soak up the lovely views of the surrounding countryside and the Clwydian mountain range.

Undoubtedly, the most popular part of the property is going to be the fabulous hot tub, where you can let your cares wash away as you sit beneath the stars in this idyllic and peaceful location.

The small village of Clocaenog is best known for the magnificent forest that bears its name and which runs to forty square miles.

Pull on your walking boots or get out the mountain bikes and explore the woodland.

On the far side of the forest is Llyn Brenig, a beautiful reservoir which has a popular visitor centre and a wide selection of good walks.

The market town of Ruthin is just a short drive and is home to a wide selection of high street and independent stores, as well as a fine selection of cafes, pubs and restaurants.

A superb family holiday home in beautiful North Wales countryside.

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.
