  • "Really lovely holiday cottage."

    Everything you need is catered for there, a lovely little welcome produce pack on arrival. Leah is super accommodating, with any help you may need. It's a great location, if your looking to explore North Wales. Its nice that it feels rural with the lounge looking out onto feilds. Its only a 5mins drive to the town with lots of amenities. Love to go back in the warmer months to make full use of the garden and hot tub.

  • "The cottage renovation is really well done and the furnishings are stylish."

    Hot tub great. The cottage is very well placed to discover all North Wales has to offer, Ruthin is a fabulous place with great amenities, places to eat etc. Also close enough to walk into town. My only issue was the cleanliness: it could have been better, I am very fussy though, so may not be an issue unless you are particularly obsessed with dirt like me: cupboards had crumbs in them, and I had to disinfect the kitchen cupboard door handles. A bit dusty and cobwebby in places. I did try to hoover but the hoover was full and the hose extension was missing. This was a minor issue and is easily rectified. Other than that little niggle, it was good.

    The house was perfect, it has everything you need. Our 1yr old boy loved the garden so much space for him to run around. The adults loved the hot tub and so did kids. We loved the hamper that we were greeted with when we arrived. It had bread, eggs and a lovely cake and leaflets of activities we could do.So much to do around the area. Leah the host popped over to say hello on our first night. Which was really lovely. We will definitely book again.

  • "What an amazing cottage."

    As much as the pictures online are great, when you walk through the door you are taken a back a little bit as the place is stunning, so nicely decorated, with a great flow to it. The cottage was really comfortable and all the natural light in the surroundings was also really nice. The hot tub was also a great addition after exploring this lovely part of the country. Leah was a great host, and provided detailed information on things to do and places to eat. Thanks for having us, me and my family had such a nice time.

  • "Wow wow wow!"

    What an amazing property, from the moment we stepped into the entrance hall the ambience of the cottage relaxes you completely. The cottage was the immaculate and so clean. The design and comfort of the furniture, beds etc were so comfortable. Leah the owner was so friendly and we saw her daily doing the maintenance of the hot tub.. The hot tub itself was a good one , plenty of power, spacious and with changeable colour lights. The situation of the cottage was on the outskirts of Ruthin which is a lovely historical town with lots of independent shops. The area of North Wales is so beautiful with so many things to do and areas to explore we can't wait to come back and would like to see the area in the summer months. This is one of the best cottages that we have ever stayed in. There was only 1 sml minor thing that I would suggest for an improvement and that is the addition of some large hot tub towels maybe in colours so they can be recognised instantly as hot tub towels only. We bought our own from a local supermarket. Also wanted to say thankyou for the lovely welcome hamper and the leaflets of attractions. Very helpful. Many thanks for a wonderful holiday.

  • "This is a beautifully kept little cottage, much bigger than it appears from the outside."

    We found the kitchen to be well equipped and the addition of the washing machine sorry helpful after beach trips. Leah was welcoming and very helpful in suggesting things we might like to do. The cottage feels nicely remote whilst only being a few minutes drive from local villagers Ruthin. Further afield there is so much to do, we particularly loved walking the town walls in Denbigh (free, just a £5 deposit for the keys from the castle or library), the milkshakes vending machine on the way to Denbigh, Rhyl (beautiful beach, water park) and the Welsh Mountain Zoo. Even in a week we felt like we had so much we didn't get round to doing. I think anyone who stayed here would have a wonderful time!

    Thank you so much for your lovely feedback and for being amazing guests. Great tips here for other guests to read. We would love to welcome you back to Ty Coch again in the future. ☺️ Property Owner

    We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay in an area of outstanding natural beauty. We shopped in a couple of independent shops in Ruthin and found the people friendly and very willing to share their local knowledge. We met the owner of the property who in turn was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay and hope to return.

  • "We absolutely loved our stay at Ty Coch, you didn't have to worrie about time, without a care in the world you can just relax and enjoy the sun and hot tub, best part is that this property when it has sun its like a sun trapper you get sun all day, highly reccomend."

    The decor is really modern and very stylish in every room of the house we enjoyed every min. Leah is very nice too who popped by to check on us to see how we were getting on. We popped in to the Town of Ruthin very nice little old town highly reccomend visiting Chatwinns the Sausage rolls are to die for and they are even better than greggs. Two things I would reccomend would be maybe a poof or foot stool for putting your feet up watching TV and maybe a parasol for over the hottub would be great in case of bad weather. All in all it was a beautiful stay and very relaxing beds are super comfy highly reccomend.

The property

Resting on the outskirts of the hilltop town of Ruthin in North Wales is this charming sandstone cottage, Ty Coch, extensively and thoughtfully renovated to offer accommodation for six guests.

Enjoying contemporary style yet still retaining character, Ty Coch is perfect for three couples or a family seeking a relaxing retreat to the North Wales countryside, with the added benefit of a hot tub and enclosed garden.

Park up outside the front of the property with room for two cars before heading down the side of the house to the front door; be welcomed into the porch area which retains the exposed sandstone wall, before making your way into the open-plan living space.

Come together around the dining table in the kitchen and dining area, with quality Bosch appliances to make use of when rustling up a treat, and a long dining table to seat all.

Following your home-cooked feast take the three steps up into the lounge area, with underfloor heating to warm you, bi-fold doors opening up onto the patio and a Smart TV with sofas to unwind on.

Take the conversation outside to the beautiful enclosed garden to watch the children play on the lawn while you relax on the patio furniture, or take an evening dip in the hot tub as the sun goes down.

One of the lovely bedrooms rests on the ground-floor, home to a king-size bed and a feature brick fireplace.

Head upstairs to find a roomy twin bedroom, a family bathroom with a large P-shape bath, and finally a master king-size bedroom with an en-suite shower room to complete the layout.

The property lies just a mile from the heart of Ruthin, a town which enjoys an elevated hilltop position, offering a popular stop for cyclists with its many cafés and tearooms, along with shops and pubs for a perfect self-catering stay.

Visit Ruthin's attraction of Nantclwyd y Dre Historic House and Gardens, Wales' oldest dated timbered town house with building beginning in 1435; you can now explore the house, beautiful gardens and even take a peek at the bats living in the attic via the 'Bat Cam'!

Ruthin Craft Centre and the various independent shops in the town offer a chance to see local artwork and crafts, and maybe even purchase a souvenir of your stay too!

Walkers can look forward to plenty of walking routes and areas to explore, from easier landscapes like Loggerheads Country Park and Alyn Waters Country Park, to more strenuous outings up Moel Famau, Foel Fenlli, Moel y Gamelin and Moel Morfydd.

Thrill-seeking mountain bikers can also enjoy these peaks as well as heading out to the Llandegla Moors and the Old Horseshoe Pass.

Venture over to Llyn Brenig for some Welsh water adventures like sailing, kayaking, canoeing or water zorbs, take a walk around the lake, enjoy a spot of fishing, or get out on your bike!

For a scenic break to North Wales visit Ty Coch.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.

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.
