With 9 adults, 3 children and 3 babies. Age range 6 months to 70 years! Celebrations of twins 1st birthday and Nana's 70th. The accommodation was excellent and enabled the families to enjoy their own space when required. We found the property to be clean, tidy, really well equipped and conform exactly to, or exceed the description on-line. It had a real homely feel and we found the small cottage style garden quite enchanting. The whirlpool bath was much enjoyed by the children as was the pool table. The pool room was popular with the Dads on an evening when the children were asleep in bed. All the facilities were excellent and Adam the owner attended promptly to the one problem we did experience with the boiler/hot water. He was helpful and courteous from first enquiry and throughout the booking process. The location so close to the beach was much appreciated by all. We found pubs and restaurants in both Rhyl and Llandudno who coped well with our party of 15. The area is well served by Take-aways. We would recommend this property for large family gatherings.

We stopped over for a couple of nights on our way to North Wales and were sorry we hadn't got more time to explore the area around Ruthin. This was our first visit to the town and we were very taken with the picturesque setting and fascinating town trail. The cottage provided the three of us - my wife, adult daughter and myself - with an extremely compact, comfortable and convenient base. The bed was exceptionally comfortable and we were even able to take advantage of the pleasant sitting area round the back of the cottage for an outdoor breakfast. The convenience store next door lives up to its name and as it is staffed mostly by volunteers makes for a very pleasant shopping experience. We would not hesitate to come back to this cottage for a longer stay in this overlooked area.

Nathan and Shayne were so nice and welcoming and the yurt was amazing! The hammocks outside were a nice touch and the pit fire was a really nice way to end evenings. Would definitely recommend and definitely want to return!
