  • “I’d prefer that the price is the stay include a service fee to clean up the property after vacate it: it was a little pressurise for us to leave the house clean before to leave and not knowing whether this meet expectations.”

About the property

The Old Stables is a detached, stone-built cottage resting down a quiet backstreet in Ruthin, 100 metres from the high street.

Situated within driving distance of the Snowdonia National Park, the North Wales coast and the city of Chester, this charming cottage is an excellent touring base for families or couples.

As you enter into the open-plan living area, you will sense the character of the cottage through the exposed beams and feature fireplace; here you can sink into the sofas and enjoy a family favourite film before the designated chef of the group rustles up a delicious feast within the amply-equipped kitchen.

Make your way upstairs to reach the bedrooms, comprising two doubles and single, serviced by a smart bathroom with choice of bath and shower over.

The small enclosed courtyard provides a private spot to enjoy your morning beverage whilst browsing the day’s paper.

If you fancy a night off cooking, then a short stroll will bring you to a selection of pubs and restaurants, catering for a variety of tastes, as well as some quirky independent shops worth a browse.

For a spot of history, spend an afternoon at Ruthin Castle where you can explore the lovely gardens, ruins and woodland and admire the famous peacocks.

Walkers will be interested in exploring the long-distance Clwydian Way and the beautiful Loggerheads Country Park, both within a 20-minute drive.

If you’re a lover of the coast, then the beaches at Abergele, Rhyl and Colwyn Bay are worth a visit, but if you’re willing to travel a little further, then the popular seaside resort of Llandudno is excellent for a day out.

The Old Stables is the perfect base for an adventure in Wales

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.
