If you are looking for a real get-away-from-it-all holiday or short break, Porth y Dwr, dating from 1456 and genuinely filled with original features, is a self catering cottage like no other. Although it may feel a world away, step outside into the pretty town of Ruthin for friendly pubs and excellent restaurants, independent shops, and much more besides. Perfect for families, and pet-friendly, the nearby park provides plenty of space for children and dogs to play. Porth y Dwr is well-equipped with all the facilities you need for a comfortable and relaxing stay.
Located in the heart of the beautiful Vale of Clwyd, Ruthin itself is steeped in over 800 years of history - try a 'Gruelling Experience' at the former Gaol, or walk through seven ages in Wales' oldest half-timbered townhouse, Nantclwyd y Dre. Ruthin Craft Centre, the country's foremost Centre for the Applied Arts, is housed in a stunning contemporary building, with 3 galleries and a range of craft studios. Further afield, north Wales has everything from sunny coast to high peaks; castles, myths and legends galore; places for quiet or family-friendly days out; and an enormous range of exhilarating sports and adventures to suit all abilities.
Grade II* listed Porth y Dwr is a little oasis of calm. It has been renovated using traditional and ecological materials, giving the house an amazing ambience, and is furnished in a style that perfectly reflects its character. There is no TV, but free wifi is available, and plenty of books, games and jigsaws. So sit back and enjoy the tranquillity, leave the modern world behind, and make this your best holiday ever..
