  • "We were very comfortable and it was like home from home."

    We could not fault the property. We had a wonderful welcome tray and milk in the fridge. The location was very central for our needs and it was very quiet. Feel very relaxed.

  • "Hendre was one of the best properties we have ever stopped in, it was fully equipped so had everything we needed."

    On our arrival there was a lovely welcome pack, cakes, chocolate, tea, coffee, milk and wine. We met Neddy the Shetland pony who is in a small field outside the property and Joey the owners dog who was also very friendly. Thank you to the owner Ros, we will definitely be coming back again .

  • "Fabulous cottage in the Welsh countryside."

    Gorgeous views and scenery, walks and cycle rides from the door. The cottage is very well equipped and was warm and welcoming. We were met with a delicious tray of treats and milk in the fridge. There was lots of places to visit and activities to suit everyone close by.

  • "Cottage was even better than in the photos."

    Bit difficult to find, but owner was easy to contact on arrival day and she drove to meet us. Great welcome pack. Very well equipped cottage. Superb views from upstairs main bedroom. Lovely walks in area e.g. around Moel Famau and Llangollen. Also, good base for visiting northern coast and National Trust's Erddig and Chirk Castle. Would definitely recommend the cottage and would not hesitate to stay there again.

  • "Hendre is a lovely property with all the equipment you would need in a "real home"."

    It is beautifully furnished and there is plenty of room. It was spotlessly clean. The surrounding area is amazing too. The only down side was that the views from the garden were not as advertised.

  • "The cottage owners kindly provided a basket of masks, wipes and other anti-bac sprays, etc."

    This is something it would be good to see provided at all cottages at the moment as it gives guests confidence in going self-catering.

  • "Our stay at Hendre was peaceful and relaxing."

    The owner met us and as soon as she realised I was traveling with my elderly mother she got a shower chair for the wet room, which my mother greatly appreciated. There was a welcome tray with goodies and the house facilities were excellent. I would be very happy to stay there again.

  • "Hendre is an immaculate holiday cottage 5 minutes drive from Ruthin."

    The owner (Ros) provided a lovely welcome tray with flowers and cakes, milk in the fridge and a bottle of wine! She lives across from the cottage so is there if you need her but otherwise leaves you to enjoy your holiday which is ideal. Plenty of towels and a washing machine and dryer - we honestly wanted for nothing - everything you need is provided The pony in the adjoining field must be the most photographed horse in Wales - our granddaughter was taking selfies with him! There is a pub/restaurant - The Drovers Arms a very short drive away which I recommend.

  • "Wow, what an amazing place!"

    Photos don't do it justice. We've stayed in many holiday homes and this was by far the best. Spotless, cosy, extremely well equipped. The cottage is like a tardis, so spacious and all the furniture, bedding etc was very high quality. The bathrooms are beautiful, like a high end hotel. We stayed with our two sons who loves feeding the pony. Although in a very rural location it's only a few minutes to wonderful local pubs and shops in Ruthin. Already booked again for next year. Perfect.

    Beautiful tray of welcoming drinks and biscuits, together with a vase of fresh flowers. Owner most welcoming and came to check at end of first week, very helpful but not intrusive in any way, eager to ensure that we would enjoy our stay. We would very much like to return at some time.

  • "A really good experience and a very warm welcome."

    Owners were most helpful and even managed to rig up a ramp for the wheelchair user in our party. The cottage was very suitable for wheelchair use on the ground floor and we were able to hire a hoist locally. The accommodation was equipped to a very high standard and having a log burner was the icing on the cake. We had a lovely Shetland pony in the cottage grounds and the owners dogs were friendly and well behaved. The owners went above and beyond what is required providing us with a welcome tray, home bakes and fresh fruit. Ros also popped round with extra logs and a bottle of wine when the weather turned colder and asked were we okay. What a star.
