  • "Beautiful cottage, with really good amenities."

    Everything was thought of for the guests, even the 'welcome pack' on the kitchen table Ideal for families that enjoy the countryside. We took the mountain bikes to Llyn Brenig and Llyn Alwen as they were only a 15-minute drive away from the cottage. Plenty of room in the fridge and the freezer and the kitchen was very stocked with equipment. All of the cottage bedrooms are good sized with plenty of wardrobe space and even had an upstairs TV and lounge for teenagers. Thankyou Marian and Mick for your hello email ! Forgot to say beautiful views over the valley.

  • "Absolutely phenomenal property and couldn't have been happier with our stay."

    The attention to detail with everything was just beautiful, so many extra touches that made us feel so welcome and gave great home comforts. Beds were all really comfy, shower in the main bathroom was good and sofas nice and comfortable too. We were a large family group ranging from 3 to 72 and everyone was really pleased with everything. Mick and Marian are wonderfully thoughtful hosts and we're already planning out next visit. Extremely well stocked kitchen made breakfast for 11 a breeze, the entire house was beautifully decorated for Christmas and felt extra special for the children with letter to Santa writing kits left out for them. Can't fault a thing, loved every minute.

    It makes us happy to hear that you had such a good time at Garth Cottage. We always do our best to make you feel at home. Hurry back. Property Owner

    The location is just beautiful and the cottage itself is welcoming and homely with plenty of space for our 3 families. The views from the rooms are stunning. Great communication from owners making us feel reassured and welcome, lovely basket of goodies left and lots of great recommendations which were so helpful!

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Garth Cottage with our friends just before Easter this year and I highly recommend it to everyone visiting North Wales!"

    It is spacious, clean, and perfectly located for day trips to Snowdonia and the coast. The view over the hills with grazing sheep around is perfect for an idyllic morning start with a cup of coffee! We were also pleasantly surprised by a welcoming basket with a delicious selection of local cakes and biscuits! The furniture and appliances are in great condition. For us, it was important to have a warm shower & a relaxing cuppa near the fire after a day of trekking. Lots of room for kids to play and sleep together in one room (we had 5 between 3 families, aged 3-11). We brought our own board games and books, but there are plenty on the shelves (mostly nostalgic). There are 2 toilets one of which is combined with the shower & bathroom, this was just right for our group of 11 people. Thank you Mick and Marian for thinking about every little detail and for excellent communication before & after our arrival!

    Thank you for your lovely review, Anna. We are really pleased that you had a great time at Garth Cottage. Just one correction, though. There are actually three toilets not two - one in the main bathroom, one in the en suite and one in the utility room. All the best. Property Owner

  • "We had a fantastic family holiday at Garth Cottage, celebrating an 80th Birthday for my Mum, her kids and grand kids aged 0 - 19."

    The cottage accommodated us all with ease - the bedrooms are much bigger than the pictures suggest and having an extra sitting room was great. The kitchen was the best equipped of any cottage we have stayed in and there was enough crockery and glasses for all. Bit tight parking three cars and keeping the gate shut but we managed ok. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and we had a family hike to Nantglyn and back, where the playground and stream were enjoyed. The large garden was very safe for little ones and we had a fantastic Easter Egg Hunt. Mum enjoyed topping up the birdfeeders and watching the many birds. Plenty of supermarkets in Denbigh but we also had a Sainsbury Delivery which managed the narrow lane okay. The two double bedrooms are quite chilly but we dressed accordingly and the stunning views from the double windows more than made up for the draughts. We drove to Llandudno for a taste of the seaside and some retail therapy for the teens. A fantastic holiday with memories to treasure.

    Thank you, Leonie, for your very positive review. We have always loved Nantglyn as well so we are glad you made an opportunity to enjoy its charms. Our visitors have had deliveries from Asda and Tesco as well as Sainsburys who you used and the country lanes have been no problem. The bedroom windows have two closure positions so not sure if they were set on the tightest but thanks for letting us know so we can look at it. We are always looking to improve if possible. You are right and it is hard to beat a mix of beautiful countryside and the seaside so great that everybody had such an enjoyable time. Thanks again for the review which was much appreciated. Thanks also for feeding the birds - they are looking forward to you coming back soon as well!! Property Owner

    The property is well equipped, particularly in the kitchen, with every kitchen utensil you could possibly need, huge oven/ hob/ fridge & freezer.

    Michael and Marion, the owners , were extremely helpful in facilitating at short notice . We were told the dishwasher Was going to be replaced and indeed it was although not until the end of our stay through no fault of the owners . However this didn’t detract from a fabulous stay at Garth. There were 11 of us in our party and a dog, across three generations and we all had a fabulous time, helped massively by good weather. The children loved the fact they had their own “quarters “ with 4 bedded room and lounge to themselves , leaving the adults to spend some quiet time together . The kitchen was really well stocked with everything you need and plenty of games for all to enjoy . The views from the house across the Welsh hills is stunning and we enjoyed some really good walks , although not really for the unfit ! Lots of places to visit and Llyn Brenig was only 15 mins away. We had never heard of this place but it was lovely with a nice walk across the dam, adventure playground and motor boats to hire. Garth is a little remote with narrow lanes surrounding it but it did mean the children could make as much noise as they liked without disturbing anyone . We would definitely return !

    The cottage itself is spacious and has most of the facilities a large/extended family would need to spend some quality time together. The cottage itself is quite secluded so you're going to need plenty of rations, board games and wine (sort the order of priority yourselves), we enjoyed the spacious upstairs lounge when we needed to get away from the kids and noise, remember to note your Netflix password for the films. You will probably also get a visit from Tommy the friendly Jack Russell from the neighbouring property, according to the owners he used to live there and still thinks he does.We experienced the obligatory Welsh rain for a couple of those days but made the most of our time together at Prestatyn (nice town and beach), Llandudno (ditto), Betws-y-coed (picturesque, with nice shops and kids railway), Llangollen (good places to eat and pretty). We also got as far afield as Liverpool for the day (1h15m) and Chester is also a similar distance. All in all it was an interesting Welsh country hideaway in a nice setting with lovely views. One recommendation, communicate with the owners, they are very welcoming and willing to please. Thank you both Mick and Marian.

    The outside bin was already full when we arrived. The WiFi was not great which is understandable because of its rural location however it is a selling point maybe not state super fast broadband. This did not ruin our stay we had a wonderful time at Garth Cottage and would highly reccomend it. We took 2 16 year olds a 14yr old and 11 and 10yrs. We all had a great time in Denbigh and the surrounding area.

    We are glad you had a wonderful time at Garth Cottage. Thank you for your comments on the bins and WiFi. The issue with the bins was a one-off event that will never happen again. We actually had BT install a WiFi fibre-optic cable direct to the house and we know from our own experience that it does give very fast speeds which are much higher than most of what is available locally. We have spoken to BT and the connection is providing the fast service so we will monitor it closely to ensure it stays that way. Thanks again. Property Owner

The property

Just off the Denbigh Moors with Denbigh 4 miles away.

Nestled down a quiet country lane, wrapped in sweeping green fields and rolling pastures of the idyllic North Wales countryside, is this traditional, detached and totally private cottage, tucked away near the thriving town of Denbigh.

This charming 1824 stone-built cottage is simply perfect for those seeking a healthy break away with family and friends in a peaceful, rural location.

There are gorgeous views across the hills, and a beautiful interior oozing character with a modernised finish.You will be delighted by the cosy setup from the moment you step through the door.

Inside, guests will find two wonderful sitting rooms, one positioned on the first floor with access to a balcony, and one on the ground floor with a delightful woodburner in the Inglenook.

Both sitting rooms are uplifted by large L-shaped sofas and bright refreshing colour schemes.

A country cottage theme flows elegantly throughout.

Make your way to the kitchen, designed for guests to gather together at the grand dining table to enjoy a fabulous set of integrated appliances and contemporary-style units.

You will be impressed at the selection of flexible sleeping arrangements laid out in the five bedrooms.

One is upstairs, four are downstairs, one being en-suite, served by a wonderfully modern bathroom with a tub, a large shower and quality, tiled finish.

The town nearby offers a varied assortment of shops, bars, restaurants and pubs.The local is one of the oldest pubs in Wales, featuring its own in-house ghost, while the highest pub in Wales is also very close on the moors.In the town there are also the fascinating remains of a 13th century castle, commanding fabulous views out over picturesque landscapes including the Hiraethog mountains.

If you fancy a day out at the seaside, Prestatyn and Llandudno are within easy reach.

A day of shopping and exploring can be had in the historic city of Chester with its Roman Amphitheatre, charming Grosvenor Park, and the most visited zoo in the UK.

For those who love walking and being outdoors there are many footpaths and bridleways in the immediate vicinity while Betws-y-Coed and Snowdonia National Park are an easy drive away.

Right on the doorstep are the Denbigh Moors with the Llyn Brenig Activity Centre, and the beautiful Vale of Clwyd.

This tremendous retreat makes an excellent base for touring North Wales and the North West.
