  • "Riverdale provided the perfect setting in which to explore North Wales."

    The accommodation was wonderful and felt a home-from-home for the week; it had everything needed for a relaxing and enjoyable stay. Have already recommended to friends and family and we're hoping to return next year.

  • "Perfect for our weekend requirements."

    Cosy and comfortable and in a nice setting. East walking access to shops, pub and takeaway! Very quaint and nicely detailed cottage.

  • "Was a gorgeous little cottage in the most amazing location."

    The only thing missing is some comfy outdoor seating (there is a table and chairs). It was baking hot when there and as we had our pup with us we spent a little more time at the cottage than planned. Also a little more outdoor lighting at the back. Other than that was the perfect stay.

  • "A beautiful, comfortable home, full of character and facilities, in a stunning location."

    Ideal as a base to explore further afield but also in a lovely town with many amenities in walking distance, supermarket, cafes, pubs, takeaways etc. Some lovely walks on the doorstep if you travel with your dogs. Looking forward to a return visit.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at the cottage, we would love to welcome you back in the near future. Property Owner

  • "Property is looking tired…."

    Old furniture downstairs and decor. Curtains don’t even fit the windows properly. Needs re-Decorating. Bathroom needs basic items like a mirror over the wall sink to use. Towel rails etc…. When it came to the evening, we were sitting out the front with a glass of wine and all the local teenagers kept coming and going into the castle ruins opposite the cottage to buy illegal vapes etc…. Not a great atmosphere and for kids to see.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback following your stay. The property was built in the 1800’s and is a stone built cottage, we have renovated the property to keep the character in the cottage rather than loose it’s historic charm by modernising it. The photos on our advert were taken in June 2023. There is a 6ft mirror over the bath and a make up mirror in the bathroom along with a heated towel rail next to the sink to keep towels warm when using the bath or shower. Unfortunately the castle grounds are not under our control, we have not had any previous issues raised but we will speak with local neighbours. Thanks again Ben Property Owner

The property

Enjoying breath-taking views of Rhuddlan Castle and a short walk away from River Clwyd in Denbighshire is Riverdale, a charming, two-bedroom abode.

Just paces away from a hub of amenities, whilst within driving distance to the North Wales coastline, Riverdale offers a characterful home for a group getaway, inviting four guests and two furry companions.

Park up off-road or to the roadside, before entering the home, starting your break in the homely sitting room, adorned with beamed ceilings, exposed stonework, a rustling woodburning stove, and a Smart TV for entertainment.

Continue through to the dining room, where you can gather as a group and set the table, whilst the chef of your party takes advantage of the well-equipped kitchen and neighbouring utility.

To soak up your surroundings some more, opt for an alfresco affair in the rear garden, both private and enclosed, ideal for your pets to stroll and play.

When sleep calls, select between a characterful double and a lovely twin, before awakening to a refresh in the sleek ground-floor bathroom.

Start your morning off with a hike through Rhuddlan Nature Reserve, or even a round of golf at Rhuddlan Golf Club, before heading into the village to stock up on the essentials and dine out at the Castle Inn Rhuddlan; Bodrhyddan Hall wedding venue is also nearby, making Riverdale an ideal base for guests.

Head to Rhyl and its sweeping beach, brimming with attractions, including Zip World Rhyl, SC2 waterpark, and SeaQuarium Rhyl, before following the coast to Kinmel Dunes Local Nature Reserve.

For nature-filled landscapes, travel to Rhaeadr Dyserth Waterfall, or follow the Dyserth to Prestatyn Way walking trail, before summiting Gop Hill Cairn.

The Snowdonia National Park and its delights are also reachable by car, recommended to explore whilst visiting North Wales.

Enjoy your escape at Riverdale.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
