  • "The Old Barn is a great place to stay."

    This was a return visit for us having stayed a week the year before. Very nice accommodation with great views and walks nearby.

  • "The Old Barn is situated in breathtaking scenery."

    It is charming, well furnished and very comfortable The owners were helpful but not in any way intrusive.The walks start almost from the Barn so for dog owners it’s a real bonus.I had a great holiday,so many attractions nearby and I would love to return

  • "We had a really nice stay @ the Barn."

    The cottage is located in perfect location for walks, 2mins from the place there is a "hidden" path, so you can start your walks away from cars etc. We have spend hours exploring surrounding areas with beautiful views. I would highly recommend this place, BUT please bare in mind something that we weren't aware of- that the "garden" isn't private, even though it states it is. There is another property that shares the spaces. So if your dog is good, as long as he is with people he knows, but reactive to unknown people, you will have to keep them on leash (unless obviously you are unconcerned about safety or others).

    We were warmly welcomed by the owner, and even had homemade fruit cake waiting for us. It’s well equipped and handy for both Chester and Wrexham, and also not too far from the coast. There are some great walks nearby, and with it being dog friendly, was perfect for us. Local pubs are dog friendly, and offer wonderful food. This is a property we would return to again.

    The owners were very friendly and helpful making sure we had everything we needed. The area around the cottage is absolutely beautiful and the views just 2 minutes down the road are undoubtedly some of the best in Wales when cresting the hill they really take your breath away. There are 2 properties on site and we have stayed in both and would highly recommend either. Happy holidays. Terry.

  • "Very well equipped property."

    Comfortable and quiet with plenty of parking space. The property is fully fenced so this is only an advisory if you have a small dog and because my cavalier managed to squeeze through it on the last day, the gap between the gate and post is big enough to get through but there are plenty of things around to use to block it off while you are in. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here last week.

    Thank you for your feedback regarding the Old Barn. We were very disappointed that you found the furniture in the living room to be uncomfortable. We go to great lengths to try to ensure that everything is nice for our guests and as we, ourselves, would wish it to be. Unfortunately, the comfort of living room furniture depends very much on how it "fits" an individual and what is good for one person is not necessarily good for another. We are sorry that, on this occasion, we weren't able to precisely meet your needs but were glad to note that you enjoyed your holiday overall. Property Owner

  • "As the cottage said dog friendly,and also enclosed garden,this in my opinion isn’t true."

    I found the staircase in the cottage dangerous,it needed a safety gate at the bottom,to stop the dog going up ,as the steps had gaps,which were quite dangerous.Also it said enclosed garden,that wasn’t .A dog could easily get out. Last. The grounds were extremely dark at night,they have lights but they go off after about 30 seconds.The lighting should be on for a set period of time. I have to give a frank an honest review.

    Dear Guest We were very disappointed to hear that you were unhappy with the Old Barn. The great majority of our guests visit the Barn with dogs (some large some very small) and most make a point of saying how happy they are with the accommodation. If I could address your comments in turn: state that you found the staircase in the cottage dangerous. The staircase has open tread stairs, which might be a little disconcerting for someone who has never used this type of staircase before. However, I'd like to reassure you that the stairs are every bit as safe as any other type of staircase and are fully Building Regulations compliant. 2. We do not leave a safety gate in the cottage as this would be in the way for guests who do not want to use it and safety gates can prove difficult to step over and a trip hazard. We do however have one available for guests who wish to avail themselves of it. 3. The area surrounding the cottage (and it's neighbour the Little White Cottage) can be shut off by closing the gate. Once the gate is closed the area is dog-tight. 4. The grounds are dark at night but we have outside security lights which react to movement so if you are walking your dog around you should not be in a very dark area at all. We will, however, check again to ensure there are no dark areas we've missed. Additionally we provide torches for guests to use during their stay. It's a shame that you didn't discuss your concerns with us in the limited time you were here. We live onsite and, as we mention to all guests, we're only too happy to help with any issues if we possibly can. Property Owner

    The weather wasn’t great, so we walked less than we’d hoped, but there are some great routes including Moel Famau. Fantastic hosts, Dave and Tricia, made us so welcome and live in an adjacent property but pottered around the garden with discretion so we never felt spied-on. Tricia made us a fantastic cake (which I devoured as we drank tea and played cards outside when the sun did shine). The barn conversion itself is perfect for two people. The bed is very comfy, the en suite and kitchen are both clean and contemporary and the whole building is very well equipped with a plethora of plug sockets! The addition of the little conservatory on the back of the barn really does extend the available space; it’s a lovely place to sit (eat cake and play cards!). Highly recommended.

  • "Just spent a week at the old barn and it is the perfect romantic escape."

    The cottage is small and very cosy and has all the facilities we could need. The area is stunning and walks are right on the doorstep. The owners were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely be returning as even the dog didn't want to leave.

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.
