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. Awarded a prestigious 4* Self Catering Accommodation grading by Visit Wales, Porth y Dwr has 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. 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.
