About the location


Llanfair Dyffryn Clwyd 1.7 miles; Ruthin 3.1 miles; Llangollen 15.3 miles.

Pwllglas is a quaint village four miles south of the hilltop town of Ruthin, which lies to the north of Llangollen via the breathtaking Horseshoe Pass. There is a village shop where visitors can enjoy coffee and a cake before heading off to discover the surrounding area which includes a nearby butterfly conservation area and an old fort. Between here and Ruthin is the village of Llanfair-Dyffryn-Clwyd which has an impressive 15th century church and a pleasant pub, which serves quality food. Picturesque Ruthin is nearby and has a 700 year old history, boasting attractive, half-timbered buildings, mainly clustered around St Peter's Square, along with interesting shops and buildings and the Ruthin Craft Centre, which houses work by internationally recognised artists and craftspeople and is well worth a visit. Beautiful countryside is on Ruthin's doorstep, with Lake Brenig, Moel Famau, Loggerheads Country Park and Clocaenog Forest close by. Further afield, but still within easy touring distance are the Coast, Snowdonia National Park and the wonderful historic city of Chester.
