  • "Linda and Ian are great hosts and made us feel very welcome, particularly important in my partner's case as she is handicapped."

    Great place to unwind yet within easy reach of supermarket etc, sadly the local pub is no more however. Very comfortable accommodation and a well equipped kitchen, all very clean. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely return.

  • "Mr & Mrs Roberts where very friendly and welcoming."

    Cottage was perfect for what we needed. Lovely to wake up and see the chickens running around. The Cross Keys pub was only a short walk down the road , locals and landlord where very friendly. Ruthin town was full of history. Will definitely be staying again. Highly recommended .

  • "The cottage we stayed in was rather dirty."

    There were dusty items within the living room. The rug was stained and dirty so we had to roll it up as it was horrible to look at. There were dead bug marks on the wall. The toilet seat was broken. There was a hole in the floor that had been covered by carpet just by the kitchen door nearly twisting my ankle on numerous occasions. There was no safe place to allow the dog to wonder outside without a lead. There were bags of rubbish left outside for 5 days of our stay with flies around it. There was also washing left just by these bags of rubbish on the rotary line for the entire holiday (the same washing come rain or shine) I do have photos showing all of these. In my opinion they need to stop people visiting this cottage until much needed clean up work and diy is completed to make it a much cleaner and safer place to stay.

    I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay in our cottage. I was away on holiday this week and used a contract cleaning company, who I have taken up your issues with and I will not be using again. It is my policy not to have dogs loose on our property as we have various livestock, and this is for the safety of your animals also. I am happy for guests to walk dogs on a lead through the sheep. I organise annual repair work/decoration over the winter months as this is the only time I can get into the cottage other than to clean & can organise tradesmen, other than emergency repairs. The toilet seat is now replaced, I was unaware of this before. The floor is not covered up and hardly moves but we will investigate further. Property Owner

    We loved the daily visits from the cockerel and his hens and the free eggs.

    We received a welcome half dozen lovely fresh eggs from the hens in the field above. Mrs Roberts was very helpful. We only had a short stay over the weekend but would certainly stay there again.

  • "Nice welcome from owners."

    Cleanliness wasn't much sadly. Some rooms wasn't cleaned. A mop would've been handy to clean the kitchen floor as outside was muddy. Bought sink cleaning equipment. Location was pretty good. Animals where unique and good to see. Area was beautiful. Would reconsider the place again. Overall would describe the place as cute, comfortable and great for a wind down.

  • "A lovely cosy place to stay, in a wonderful area."

    Everyone so friendly, and made us so welcome, including the dog. Weather could have been better, but still enjoyed the scenery and food in this area of North Wales. Mr. & Mrs. Roberts made us very welcome, and we always there to help when needed. (had flat tyre on car and Lynda made one phone call, and within an hour job done, I call that service.) Thanks too all for making it such a pleasant stay. Peter

    The owners were extremely helpful and friendly. Nice comfortable cottage within easy reach of lots of places. Even on a rainy day you can sit in the cottage and watch birds, rabbits, squirrels and even the chickens outside. We are looking to going again next year.

  • "A lovely comfy home away from home owned by very nice helpful people in a lovely location, perfect for exploring beautiful north Wales."

    Our only complaint was that we had to leave! We would recommend this cottage to any couple wanting a relaxing holiday or an energetic walking holiday. We had chickens knocking on the door, sheep in the field behind the cottage and horses in the field next to us. My husband spent a very pleasant couple of hours catching fish in the owner's pond, with geese and ducks around him.

The property

Created on the footprint of a 19th century building, this purpose-built stone cottage is located next to the owners' home, on a 6-acre smallholding in the hamlet of Llanfwrog, 1.5 miles from the market town of Ruthin in beautiful North Wales.

This Ruthin cottage offers comfortable, practical accommodation with a double bedroom, cosy sitting room with sliding patio doors and a small kitchen with a breakfast bar.

The fields above this Ruthin cottage enjoy wonderful views of Moel Famau and a small fishing pond is stocked with perch and tench.

In the surrounding fields, chickens and cockerels will come to greet you, whilst sheep and horses graze quietly.

The nearest pub is an eight minute walk away, plus there's a restaurant one mile away, and within two miles you will find the Offa's Dyke Trail and Clwydian Way, as well as lots of great hacks for riders.

A perfect Ruthin cottage to explore the Clwyd Valley and surrounding countryside, all year long.

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.
