  • "Nestled in a serene setting, my three-week stay at The Hendre was an absolute delight."

    From the moment I stepped through the door, I was greeted with warmth and charm. The cottage boasts a cozy ambiance, adorned with tasteful decor that adds a touch of elegance to its rustic charm. The Hendre offers a thoughtful array of amenities that cater to every need, ensuring a comfortable stay. From the well-equipped kitchen to the impeccably clean facilities, it's evident that attention to detail is paramount here. What truly stood out during my time at The Hendre was the tranquil atmosphere of its location.The hospitality of the host was exceptional, with a seamless check-in process and a warm welcome that included delightful homemade cakes and milk in the fridge. In conclusion, The Hendre offers a perfect blend of comfort, tranquility, and hospitality.

  • "A bit delayed in leaving feedback as our stay was end of October 2023 but had a wonderful time here."

    Was cosy indoors with log burner on whilst stormy weather outside. Lovely well equipped cottage. Fab welcome tray, milk in fridge, wine and ground coffee and cafetière which was a lovely surprise. Whilst the location feels off the beaten track it did not take too long to get to local towns. There’s fresh eggs close by and Llaethdy Llwyn Banc Dairy to get ice cream fresh (from the farm) milk vending and milkshakes close by. Would have been nice to have had the ability to get catchup tv (one of our party stayed home a couple of days and likes Netflix) and we didn’t think to take our firestick with us. Would definitely recommend. Not too far from Chester Zoo either.

    ! So clean and tidy and well thought out with everything you need. The beds are on the firmer side which didn’t suit everyone but apart from that-stunning! A pony in the garden that’s more than happy to share your apples and carrots and a lovely stroll up the lane to see more horses and a river. A great meal at the Drovers Arms five mins drive away-book on a Friday night!!

    A wonderful welcome tray and lots of little touches like a hair dryer in each room boxes of tissues on the bedside tables. With neddy the shetland just outside saying hello to us every day a real character. Decent internet and good quality comfortable furniture I would highly recommend and stay here. It was in the countryside down a few lanes but also close to a town with supermarkets and chip shops etc.

    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.

    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.

    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.
