  • “The whole experience was just brilliant.”

    The cottage was beautifully presented & Sue & her Husband were extremely welcoming. It is situated in a lovely quiet location & the whole of North Wales is easily accessible. We would thoroughly recommend Bryn Derwen as a great place to stay to explore the beautiful surrounding area.

The property

A delectable cottage nestled in the quiet country in the village of Llangynhafal, Bryn Derwen is a pretty property found within the idyllic settings of the Welsh countryside.

Park up at the front of the stone-front dwelling and head inside for your self-catered stay, first of all, head up the stairs to explore the bedrooms and decide who’s sleeping where; with a king-size, a twin and a single, this cottage provides a wonderful layout for any party, particularly with the twin room doubling up as a super-king-size upon request!

Each of the rooms is simplistic but stylish, allowing you to rest in neutral settings with the marvellous countryside sunset just outside of your window; there’s no better background to fall asleep to.

On the first floor you can also find a shared family bathroom, home to a glorious bath with a hand-held shower, take the opportunity to unwind in a warm bath with a glass of bubbly when your tiresome day draws to a close, and to avoid any last minute morning rush, the cottage also offers a wet room boasting a mosaic styled flooring and contemporary fixtures, you’ll be spoilt for choice!

Moving back downstairs you will come across a modest sitting room, with ample seating for all and not forgetting an electric recliner sofa and a warming woodburning stove, this room is the ideal place to take a break and appreciate each other’s company over a family-fun game or relaxing in front of the television with one of the many books on the bookshelves.

The kitchen is a lovely spot to enjoy any home-cooked meal you fancy, fit with a wooden dining table and all the equipment you could need to rustle up any meal, the kitchen truly is the hub of the house with a stable door looking out to the garden.

Head to the back garden to enjoy an hour or two of sun-soaking where the dogs can roam around freely, with the countryside in view from any spot you sit in, it offers a lovely place to enjoy a picnic or an afternoon of games with the little ones.

The local area is rural and tranquil, a great spot to enjoy walking, cycling, and of course nature spotting.

The town of Ruthin is within close proximity, here you can find a selection of eateries, shops and many more amenities offering hours of family fun.

Zip World in Penrhyn is a fantastic family day out, around 1 hours drive away.

With Chester nearby with its historic Roman walls, its breath-taking architecture, Bryn Derwen is positioned in an ideal spot for exploring the wonders of both Wales and England all while being surrounded by magnificent settings.

About the location


Ruthin 3 miles; St Asaph 11 miles.

Llangynhafal is a pretty village set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, in the Vale of Clwyd, just under 3 miles from Ruthin. It has an excellent village pub, and a superb example of a 7th century, double-naved church with ornate stone carvings, which is located next to a cottage where the poet William Wordsworth used to stay. Llangynhafal is situated on the Pilgrim's Way, which stretches from Holywell to St. David’s and is still in regular use as part of the Cistercian Way covering a circular route taking in many abbeys and churches throughout Wales. Just under 3 miles to the south lies the hilltop town of Ruthin. This picturesque town has attractive half-timbered buildings, with many clustered around St Peter’s Square. Ruthin has 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, the Offa’s Dyke path and Clocaenog Forest all close by. Further afield, but still within easy touring distance, are beautiful beaches such as those at Harlech and Abersoch, Portmeirion village, Llandudno, Anglesey, Snowdonia National Park and the historic city of Chester.
