  • "We had a girly weekend for a birthday, the place was really nice, comfortable and the pub below was very welcoming, I would definitely recommend staying here again."

    We have a great time, even though the chef had a week off so they wasn't doing food at the time. There is takeaways and other pubs doing good within a short distance.

  • "We absolutely loved our stay at the Heather apartment ."

    It was a unique stay in a beautiful & historical building . The pub was stunning & friendly . We can’t wait to go back & sample the resteraunt delights after these latest Covid rules are over . It was an amazing way to bring in the New Year on the balcony looking across the Welsh countryside . We would book to stay here again & would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a country stay with beautiful views . Having the pub underneath is a massive bonus & the owners where super friendly and the place was immaculate . We had such a lovely cozy relaxing stay . I want to take the oppurtunity to thank the owners and wish the the very best for 2022 . Three scouse girls had an amazing start to the new year . Well done the owners of the three pigeons and well done Sykes for making I so easy to book . Everything was so professional & Heather the apartment was brilliant . A true home from home .

  • "We had a lovely, quiet and restful week at Heather in October 2021."

    We found the accomodation to be clean, well laid out and fantastic value for money. The pub downstairs is spacious yet cosy and the couple who own it are very friendly. Unfortunately no food was available whilst we were there due to staffing issues but that was OK. We found other places to eat and a great Indian place who delivered a really good meal.

  • "Was in Heather for a week, had a great time."

    Lovely location, cosy and well equipped apartment. Nick and Julia were welcoming and helpful without being intrusive. Had a meal in the pub on Sunday; excellent roast dinner, beautifully cooked and highly recommended. Some great walks in the area, and a really good base for exploring North Wales.

  • "We had a lovely week at Graigfechan."

    The apartment above The Three Pigeons was clean and comfortable, it also has a lovely balcony which is a little sun trap and overlooks the most amazing scenery, great for watching the glorious sunsets. A wonderfully peaceful area with fantastic walks close by. The Three Pigeons is a lovely pub which serves very good, well cooked pub food. All in all a great holiday!

  • "This accommodation is amazing!"

    1. Beautiful location and views 2. Fantastic base to discover north Wales 3. Fully equipped - towels, bedding, tin foil, tea and coffee… you name it and it’s there. We are used to taking our own so this was great. 4. Lovely owners that are there if you need them. 5. Value for money - great price for high quality. 6. Pub/restaurant below… no noise and we have small children. The food smells amazing, but we didn’t get to eat there due to how busy we were. Overall, book here and you won’t be disappointed. We are planning our return visit.

  • "Really nice, cosy apartment (Heathers), decent kitchen and bathroom, and good bedding and plenty of towels provided."

    Despite this being a loft conversion with sloping roof/walls, it felt quite roomy for four of us (2 adults, 2 small kids) - plenty of space to move around. And the owners (and pub landlords) are friendly. It's above a quiet village pub (the Three Pigeons Inn) and there was little noise once the apartment door was closed, despite the balcony being over the outdoor patio for the pub below. It has a slightly odd layout, with the bathroom and two bedrooms off the master bedroom - no corridor. And some of the sockets and skylight blinds are in the sloping roof area, so watch your head when accessing them! We didn't eat at the pub, so can't comment on the food. The nearest place for grocery supplies is the Tesco supermarket 3 miles north in Ruthin. Would make a decent base to visit local towns (Llangollen is 12 miles south-south-east), the north wales coast, or even Snowdonia national park to the west. The only issue we had was with the secondary fire exit that exits into the adjoining apartment - it's just a standard door (locked by an electronic release that is only opened when you smash the fire alarm glass) and really could do with being a more substantial acoustic door with full acoustic draught exclusion around it as the conversations/sounds from the adjoining room were quite audible.

    We was met by Nick the owner he was very friendly and helpful insisted in carrying our heavy case up the steps to the apartment . The apartment was bright and airy and very clean the views from the balcony are absolutely stunning I loved watching the baby bunnies playing in the next field. Later we went down to the beer garden and met Julia Nicks wife she was also very friendly and chatty. We really enjoyed our break and yes we would return thankyou Angie & Steve

About the location

GRAIGFECHAN

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.
