  • "Very comfortable and cosy cottage, also very warm!"

    Had a great stay, shame it’s on a main road as could not have the front bedroom window open at night as it was too noisy - the fan came in handy! The back garden area could also be fenced off to make a small secure section for the dog to roam - don’t need all that parking space as cottage suits one family/one car. The Sykes website also states a games room as one of the facilities - obviously an error?!! Overall, we had a lovely holiday, great base to explore, friendly neighbours and locals.

    Beautiful cosy cottage in great location and walking distance to restaurants, shops and pubs.

    The cottage is in a really good position in Ruthin and is ideal for travel to neighbouring towns and villages . The cottage itself is compact - that doesn't mean cramped , and maintained to a high standard . The owners are really friendly and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this cottage , just leave a week vacant for us !

    Beautifully presented and very clean. Ideally located for trips to Rhyl, Bala, and Snowdonia. We couldn't have asked for anything more, comfy beds, roomy living room, powerful shower and well equipped kitchen. Bonus of plenty of space to park. Easy walk into Ruthin for a morning walk with the dog and breakfast from the bakery. Sion and Jane were very welcoming and the neighbours nice to chat to. Road can be busy during the day but quietens down at night, so not a problem to us. Recommended Show less

  • "Cottage was fabulous ."

    Very clean , and with excellent facilities , including very good parking . Just on the edge of Ruthin , with a convenience store and petrol station within easy walking distance . Ruthin centre was a 10 min. walk up an incline . The town is really nice , with a couple of supermarkets for your food shopping , independent shops and pubs and restaurants. The only reservation I had was that the back garden is not secure , so if you are taking your pet you will need to exercise them at the local park , which is about 100 yds away and again is very nice. This did not spoil our holiday , and was really only a minor niggle against all the plusses the cottage had to offer . Owner Sion was brilliant . A really nice guy , and very knowledgeable about the area . I would nt hesitate to rebook or recommend this cottage to anyone with or without pet.

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.
