  • "It was a great stay, the pod looked very nice and it was spotless."

    Was supplied with everything that you would need for a great few days of relaxation. The hot tub was amazing and the owner left some treats and a bottle of prosecco for us, as a welcoming pack. Overall we were very impressed with everything and we will most definitely recommend this to our friends, and maybe even come back here, next time we plan a trip in Wales.

    We felt so relaxed so we only went out twice during the week. It’s so peaceful waking up to the sheep and birds and then relaxing under the stars in the hot tub at night. We would highly recommend to anyone that wants a nice relaxing break to shut off for a few days. We had a lovely time and would love to possibly return in the future. Thank you Elen and family :)

    The pod was stunning inside, so clean and tidy. I was surprised with roses and some little snacks and Prosecco inside which was a lovely surprise. We went to Arwel reservoir for a 10km trek and was lovely to come back and chill out in the hot tub. The view from the pod was insane, so beautiful and we loved waking up to the horses and sheep outside. Was just an amazing weekend and couldn’t have been any better. Definitely would go again.

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.
