Porth Y Dwr

Ruthin, Denbighshire, Country town

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.

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. 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.

15th century Porth y Dwr is a little oasis of calm, furnished traditionally in a style to reflect its character. Sit back and enjoy the tranquillity, leave modern technology behind - there is no TV or wifi - and make this your best holiday experience ever.
