    Very clean. Lots of attention to detail. Helpful owners who live next door. Fantastic view from living room and bedrooms over fields. The property is down a well maintained track. If it's peace and quiet you're after I highly recommend it!

    It has a very ‘home from home’ feel about it. It had everything we needed for our stay especially peace and quiet , while being in easy reach of several small towns and villages. The hosts are extremely friendly and go above and beyond to make us feel welcome. We look forward to staying again .

  • "From the minute we arrived it was clear that this was the perfect property for us, peace and tranquillity."

    The welcome we received was wonderful, nothing too much trouble at all. The house offered us a true home from home with comfortable beds and space to move around and be comfortable. The wardrobes were well equipped with hangers and plenty of room. Everything was perfectly presented, right down to the pretty wildflowers that were left in vases. There was tea, coffee, milk and biscuits along with starter kit for the fire which was most welcome. The hosts had thought of everything including useful information for places to visit and was close to so many wonderful places. The only thing we had an issue with was using the cooker oven, maybe a set of simple instructions for those of us who aren't really savvy with this type of oven. We highly recommend and look forward to returning.

    Thank you for your comments, including about the cooker. We're glad you enjoyed your stay in the cottage. Property Owner

  • "This is a very well maintained and spacious cottage."

    It was spotlessly clean and well equipped with everything we needed. Even tea, coffee and milk were supplied on arrival. There is a small private garden with patio furniture and views over the surrounding fields although sadly the weather meant that we never used it. The owners live next door in case there are problems but we never needed to disturb them, after being welcomed on arrival. There are several supermarkets a few miles away in both Denbigh and Ruthlin all with easy parking. Just be aware that it is a mile or so down a narrow road with passing places and you may come across the occasional car, cyclist or even a herd of cows. Drive slowly! We had a great holiday and can highly recommend this cottage for a short stay.

    Thank you for your review. We're glad you enjoyed your holiday and were pleased with the cottage. Property Owner

    Off the beaten track it's very quiet. For walks in the fields it's excellent. The owners are next door and friendly. We had a power cut. Ailsa and Nigel could not have been more helpful. Being out in the wild, up narrow lanes. It may not be suitable for those who want shops and nightlife.

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Castle View Cottage."

    It had been cleaned to a very high standard and we really felt that it was as safe as could be. We met the owners and they were friendly, welcoming and couldn't have been more helpful. The property was larger than expected so there was plenty of space for out family of two adults and two young children to spread out and relax. There were large comfortable sofas, ample soft towels and cosy beds. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. It was great to have a utility to leave muddy shoes, bags etc. The location was perfect for us and we enjoyed exploring the Clwydians, Llyn Brenig, and the coast at Colwyn Bay and Rhyl. Would highly recommend this property.

The property

Denbigh 2 miles.

This gorgeous, semi-detached cottage is set back from the road in peaceful grazing countryside, on the edge of the hamlet of Llanrhaeadr, in the popular county of Denbighshire.

Located next to the owners’ home, down a short track, this delightful cottage is surrounded by fields and sits next to a babbling, fresh water spring.

On arrival, you will be delighted with your choice of holiday home; set solely on the ground floor, this pretty cottage has been carefully styled and is well equipped throughout to cater for all your holiday needs.

The hall leads through to a large sitting room, where you can sit and toast your toes by the woodburning stove whilst enjoying delightful, rural views through its patio doors.

The second sitting room also has a dining area and makes a great space for the kids to relax in, play a game, read, or just watch TV.

The bedrooms provide cosy, comfortable accommodation and include a king-size double bedroom and a double room.

Wonderful views can be further enjoyed from the rear garden, whilst listening to the stream trickle by, or in the evening, take in the views of Denbigh Castle, which is fully illuminated at night and can be seen across the fields from the front of the house.

The bustling market town of Denbigh is just two miles away, with many traditional pubs, restaurants and unique shops, a superb, 11th century castle and ramparts, as well as more listed buildings than any other town in Wales.

On bright, sunny days, pack a picnic and explore the walks that lead right past the side of the house, providing access to the Loggerheads Country Park and Moel Famau in the Clwydian Range.

The beautiful Llyn Brenig Reservoir, and its visitor activity centre, is just 12 miles away, where you can enjoy tranquil walks, cycling and fishing.

Enjoy wonderful countryside, historic buildings, unspoilt walks and relaxing bike rides from this superb cottage, a great base for a Welsh break, all year round.
