    The cottage is a true home from home we felt comfortable as soon as we arrived. It is spotlessly clean and spacious too. Karyn and Neil live next door and are lovely people nothing too much trouble although they are not intrusive. We would definitely recommend this cottage highly

    Lovely countryside location, within easy reach of local amenities. The rigors of everyday life can be left behind. Everything that you need & require is available at this wonderful property, so you can immediately relax & begin to enjoy your time there. The lovely sized enclosed garden is ideal for all size dogs, however, as per the property description livestock in adjoining field so be mindful. The hosts are also accommodating & if during your stay have any questions, problems they are more than willing to help Cannot, will not, fault this gem of a hiide-away. Will return to enjoy further explorations of the area.

    Our dog loved the enclosed garden. It was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. The cottage is in a remote area with the owners living next door, we never saw them but they were there if we needed them and had contact via text. We loved the log burner and the spacious kitchen diner. Fantastic views from the bedroom window. Lots of nice walks nearby and a pub down the road in walking distance. Peaceful and relaxing. There are no negatives at all, would definitely return.

    The standard of everything is excellent, extremely comfortable, spotlessly clean and welcoming where simply everything has been thought of even down to the generous welcoming extras for both guests and their dogs. The cottage is the most dog friendly place we have ever stayed in and is in a great location - our walking boots covered a lot of ground Moel Famau and surrounding peaks, Clocenog forest trails and the Llantyslio mountains and it was always an amazing feeling to return to such a very warm cosy cottage.

    The cottage is superb, snug and warm, lovely and clean and the hosts are great, nothing to much trouble. The area is beautiful and the locals are really friendly. Can recommend the Leyland Arms for some fabulous food and the walks for the dog are brilliant especially Loggerheads and Clocaenog Forest. Two lovely ladies at the church in Corwen getting ready for the Remembrance Service were busy cleaning but stopped for a chat as did everyone we met on our walks. This holiday takes some beating, thank you Karyn and Neil.

  • "I can't praise this cottage enough."

    It has every modern feature whilst maintaining period charm. For a one bedroom property, it is spacious and the enclosed gardens which surround the cottage on three sides are lovely and secure. I took my labrador and he loved the outside space whilst I felt he was super safe. A small dog may need to be watched in the front due to the gate onto the road but a medium to large dog will be fine. Karyn and Neil, the owners, left a generous welcome pack - eggs, bread, Welsh cakes, milk and delicious home made jam - together with some dog treats. They live next door and so are on hand if you have any questions but leave you to enjoy you privacy and it is a private space. Handy cleaning products are left which is helpful e.g. washing up liquid and dishwasher tablets, new cloths and sponge. There is a large wardrobe and set of drawers in the bedroom with plenty of hangers and an uninterrupted view of the hills. The spacious kitchen/diner and bathroom are modern and there is outdoor furniture front and back. The little touches mean a lot, fresh flowers and a lovely tray customised for the cottage. The living room has only one small window - it's a cottage - so it is a little dark during daylight but we weren't really there much during the day and the rest of the cottage is so spacious and bright that it isn't an issue at all. In fact, it's really cosy at night. If anyone has mobility issues, there are a couple of steps inside the cottage but you probably wouldn't choose this location if accessibility is essential. The front access is sweet - slate covered paths give that comforting crunch as you walk through the trees and plants. There is plenty of space for your dog to sniff and search at the back and there are plenty of dog walking and dog friendly places to visit. We loved Loggerheads. All in all, this is a lovely cottage with everything you could wish for.

    Peaceful location with views over the countryside. We especially loved the dog secure garden for our pet. Would certainly recommend the local village pub for good food, they even do takeaways! We found it an ideal base for visiting the coast and rural locations such as Llangollen. The friendly owners, who live next door, left provisions for our arrival which were very much appreciated and we especially loved their homemade strawberry and rhubarb jam. For those with mobility issues be aware there is a high step into the property. Also a high step from the living room into the kitchen area with another step from the kitchen into the bathroom. Overall we had a very enjoyable stay and would recommend.

  • "This cottage didn’t disappoint, it was beautiful."

    The views from the garden are lovely. Our dogs enjoyed the garden which is fully enclosed and safe, my dachshund is an escape artist, the only place he would escape is under the front gate, so we just put a piece of fencing across the access to that part of the garden (piece of spare fencing found by the cabin in the garden) owners didn’t mind. Safe and secure is important for us as we want our dogs to roam around and enjoy the garden. Inside the cottage was well equipped with modern features but lots of character still. Beautiful view from the bedroom window and French doors onto the garden from the kitchen/diner. Welcome tray when we arrived which was a lovely, and fresh flowers from the garden. Lots of basic’s provided, toilet rolls, dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, teabags etc. cosy living room with log burner which we didn’t need to use but lovely, and a comfy sofa. King size comfy bed, good size bedroom with a fantastic view. From the cottage with our dogs we visited, conwy, Llandudno, betws-y-coed, swallow falls, Denbigh, Lake Brenig, Ruthin, Bala Lake, Llangollen, loggerheads. The weather was mainly dry and not too hot for July so ideal for dog walking. Pub a mile down the road which do good food to eat in or takeaway. Very dog friendly, in the pub and the garden. A mile isn’t far but it is very hilly coming home so be warned. I struggled to walk up those hills, and I thought I was quite fit. Couldn’t do it after a full meal. The owners lived next door who were very helpful if you needed anything, but didn’t bother us at all. Space for two cars which we need as we take both our vehicles. This is a wonderful place to stay, either to explore the surrounding countryside or just chill in the beautiful gardens. Great for dog walkers or couples wanting a romantic getaway. I would highly recommend it.

    Thank you so much for your helpful and positive feedback! We’re so glad you and your dogs enjoyed your stay as we want everyone to enjoy our cottage and the surroundings as much as possible. Karyn & Neil Property Owner

  • "Ysgubor ucha is a beautiful little cottage, deep in the countryside, north of Llangollen."

    It is decorated to a very high standard and contains everything two visitors could possibly need. We loved to sit out on the patio in the pretty garden. Karyn and Neil live next door, but they showed us round, then left us to enjoy our stay. The amount of lovely goodies we found was amazing…..including freshly baked scones, most welcome after a long journey. Thank you both so much. Rod and Jan Callow

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this delightful and comfortable cottage, set in a peaceful and lovely part of rural Wales."

    The property had a very secure enclosed garden for our dog who loved it, and If you want a quiet location away from busy main roads, you should find it ideal. Yet there are all the usual local amenities in Ruthin just a short six mile drive away, which is well worth visiting in its own right. I won't go on about all the places of interest to visit as they are many and varied, and you'll find them for yourselves. But I must make mention of our holiday cottage owners, who provided the most generous selection of welcome goodies we've ever experienced. Little things like that just make a stay even more memorable. Thank you both.

    The garden was ideal for our two doggys well fenced and private even though you still need to keep a eye on in case of life stock. Plenty of places to visit, so a car is essential. We would recommend this and will certainly return in the near future..

This home from home was completely perfect for a week away to explore the fantastically stunning area.

  • "A relaxing week away to unwind was the order for this holiday and it more than Matthias expectation!"

    ! On arrival Karyn and Neil gave us a warm welcome and the cottage was as picture perfect as the online images portrayed it to be. Thoughtful touches were everywhere making it a home from home for the week such as towels for the dog in case any extra are needed and the kitchen had every utensil needed. The place is beautifully furnished and the log burner was a welcome sight and treat after a long day exploring the sites. Location wise the cottage is tucked away giving a peaceful feel but the local village a mile away offers a lovely local pub and there are plenty of walking routes from the doorstep with amazing countryside views. Snowdon region is a 40min drive away and the town of Ruthin is 6miles away which is worth a visit. We were very sad to leave and will definitely be back!

    Everything was perfect from the amazing setting in a fabulous garden which was so pretty and tranquil. The cottage was really comfortable and homely. Very modern and well finished. The added advantage of the newly installed WiFi was a real treat which we weren’t expecting. We had a wonderful week exploring the local areas. Gwen our dog loved the visits from the inquisitive cows and loved the chickens to have a sniff at, for us and any dog lovers this is a completely safe and enclosed garden for them to enjoy. This was the perfect place to bring a fury friend. For anyone contemplating staying in Ysgubor Ucha, it’s a definite no brainer. Lastly not to forget the friendly, accommodating but completely non-intrusive owners. Thank you we will be booking up again very soon.
