  • "Dove Cottage is a fabulous home from home place."

    It has everything you need to enjoy your stay. The lounge area is very cosy and a good size. The bed is extremely comfortable and the shower is huge. Welcome pack is a lovely touch. The Cottage is right in the centre of Ruthin with several car parks nearby, £4 for 24 hours.

    Thank you Carol for taking the time to leave us a lovely review. Pleased you have enjoyed your time at the cottage Property Owner

    For some downtime (especially during the winter months), the owners have left a variety of books and encourage the reading - I like the crime thrillers!

  • "We really enjoyed our visit."

    Comfy bed ,great shower, easy stairs, great position to see all the wonderful sites in North Wales, beautifully decorated, everything we needed to cater for ourselves for 7 relaxing days. It's on a one way street which makes it easy to unload the car. We parked our car 200 metres away in a car park over night from 5pm to 8am. It was just as safe as parked outside the cottage. The town is full of friendly helpful people.

    Thank you so much for your lovely feedback. So pleased you enjoyed your stay Property Owner

  • "I had a lovely stay in Dove Cottage."

    It is a quiet, peaceful and comfortable place to stay, with beautiful views of the sunset, and the stars on a clear night. It felt very welcoming to come in to tea and welsh cakes! I can't recommend it highly enough. The town of Ruthin is charming, with lots of independent shops and eateries. The people are lovely and the surrounding countryside stunning and easily accessed. Michelle really went the extra mile letting me stay an extra night when the weather turned extreme with heavy snow, making the roads in-passable! Big thank you.

    Look forward to welcoming you back Cate & thank you for your lovely feedback. Property Owner

  • "Our comments are as follows, In general the property was very good, however it was let down a bit by the height of the kitchen table, which was far to high in relation to the height of the chairs."

    This made for very uncomfortable dining, leading to standing rather than sitting to eat. The kitchen was very well equipped, however it would have been very helpful to have had information on recycling at the outset of our visit. Otherwise it was comfortable everything worked, with no faults.

    Thank you for your comments which we have taken on board. Property Owner

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.
