  • "We had a lovely break, it’s a fantastic house and was perfect for 9 of us, so cosy and comfortable."

    Catrin the host and her partner were so helpful, providing us with fresh eggs, welcome wine and cakes and even Easter eggs for our children! So kind. They also helped us out with our WiFi issue and were always on hand to help. We found it very easily but some better directions might have been helpful as none were provided by Sykes.

    The hot tub was a hit along with the pool table. We would definitely recommend a stay here. We did visit the grounds of Ruthin castle, Conway and Llandudno. Was a nice break away. The owner was lovely and was on hand if there were any problems. No problems arose.

  • "Fabulous property."

    We were a party of 8; 4 adults and 4 children, and found the space in the home just perfect. Loved using the hot tub and the pool table. The views are picture perfect. Great to have en suite for each bedroom, and the utility room (with large fridge freezer and washing machine etc) was so useful too. Location lovely and remote but also 10 mins into Ruthin.

  • "Fantastic house barn conversion has been done to a very high standard."

    Plenty of space for 6 adults to chill out, comfortable beds and everything you need is provided. Hard to find property (especially in the dark) as post code took us to centre of village. No signal for sat nav!! Please note remote location so you will need a car to get to the shops / pub etc. Would have been useful to have some suggested local walks printed out and clearer instructions re the WiFi.

  • "We absolutely loved our week at this property."

    We were there with three generations of family aged 10 to 80 and it suited everyone. Not only were the pool table and hot tub fantastic, but there was space for everyone whenever we ate or socialised together, and plenty of games for in- and outdoors. The host (Catrin) was fabulous - she was really helpful whenever we had questions and very generously gave the kids Easter eggs and one of the grown-ups who had a birthday during our visit a bottle of Prosecco - she really went above and beyond to make sure our stay was special. This is a great spot for anyone who wants to relax but still be within in an hour of lots of lovely places to visit.

    We were a group of 3 couples with 4 young children. Every detail of the property was perfect, the sheer size of the house, the secure garden, the private hot tub area and the stunning views. The house will take your breath away as you pull onto the drive. Catrin, the host was lovely and even surprised me with a bottle of prosecco and a card on my birthday. We would 100% recommend this house.

  • "We have just returned from a week in this beautiful house, and want to use this review to both thank Catrin, simply the loveliest host we have ever met, and to share a few tips we picked up to consider when booking."

    The house itself is perfect for large family groups, we had 2 young children and their parents, grand parents and great grandparents and the layout worked really well. The main living floor has only 2 steps and includes 1 double and 1 twin en-suite bedrooms, ideal for the older family members (be aware there is a tall staircase to the main floor from the entrance, best to use the ramp and walk around to the other door to access if walking awkward). There are then 2 staircases, one to 2 Double en-suite rooms and one to the final double en-suite, so the kids and parents had one staircase and we had the other. The house has great shower rooms in very bedroom and one bathroom on the ground floor level next to the large Games / family room. The house is maintained to a great standard and has all that you could wish for in terms of Media, Netflix in every room, great pool table and lots of space for kids outside and the hot tub with changing room and showers was brilliant I would really recommend following the advice to book a meal from The Sorbus Tree whilst your there, easily top restaurant standards and really good pricing for the quality you get and Catrin and Hannah (TST) coordinated to get it in the fridge whilst we had a day out. We would also recommended Catrin’s nomination of Bryn Tegid as a day out, along with days out locally at both Loggerheads and Bala.

    The owners here have thought of everything. Every room has an en suite bathroom, there’s underfloor heating throughout the property, and even the hot tub sits under shelter so you can use it in the snow or rain. This was our second time visiting the property as a group of eight, once in summer and once in winter. We had a wonderful time on both occasions. In the summer it acted as our base from which we explored other parts of North Wales, and in the winter we had lots of snow and utilised the property’s wood burning fire and enjoyed some cosy nights in. I cannot recommend Tyn Y Celyn Isaf highly enough. If you’re looking for pure relaxation and luxury in a stunning part of the world, look no further.

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.
