The property

This centrally located, detached cottage with a hot tub, formerly The Old Nag’s Head pub, has been tastefully renovated and upgraded to offer a fantastic holiday cottage on the edge of the popular historic market town of Ruthin, in the Clwyd Valley in Denbighshire.

This stone cottage appears traditional at first glance but upon entering you will be amazed at the luxurious modern styling and attention to detail throughout.

There is an open plan living space set around a multi-fuel stove nestled in a small inglenook fireplace, opening through to a spacious dining room with bi-fold doors to the garden and quality fitted kitchen with granite worktops and social breakfast bar, offering excellent cooking and entertaining space for your holiday needs.

The separate utility room is also fully fitted and provides ample laundry facilities and a second reception room provides a cosy area to settle in front of the living flame gas fire enjoying one of the five Smart televisions.

Upstairs the luxury continues, with four quality bedrooms, comprising a twin, a double, a king-size double and a super king-size double bedroom with an en-suite shower room, plus a stylishly-appointed family bathroom with a designer egg-shaped bath and a walk-in rainfall shower.

Parking is accessed under an archway to the rear, where you will also find the York stone paved garden with ample seating and a hot tub.

Just a few minutes' walk away are all of the attractions of this popular town, with Ruthin Castle well worth a visit along with the Gaol and Craft Centre, many independent retailers, cafes and traditional pubs, and an abundance of walking trails leading from the town, including the popular Clwydian Way.

This first-class holiday cottage is in a fantastic position to explore the town and discover a delightful unspoilt part of North 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.
