  • "Lovely little cottage set in beautiful surroundings."

    The attention to detail by Dave and Trish really shines through. They provided a small welcome pack which included home baked cake (was yummy), dog biscuits and milk. The cottage was spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. The kitchen is really well equipped and included a spice rack. There is good quality knives, pans etc which we really appreciated. Dsve and Trish are very friendly and helpful, thank you.

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.
