A trip to Ruthin (or Rhuthun in Welsh) in Denbighshire, North Wales will take you back in time. Famous for having survived a sixteen-week siege by Parliament forces during the English Civil War, 13th-century Ruthin Castle still stands strong today. The same can be said about Nantclwyd y Dre — North Wales’ oldest timbered house. Elsewhere, the town boasts St. Peter's Square where you’ll find an array of shops and restaurants housed in 600-year-old buildings. Everyone will love a trip to Ruthin Gaol to learn all about life inside a Victorian prison, while the modern Ruthin Craft Centre houses one of the best collections of contemporary applied art in the UK.

Ruthin is perfectly positioned on the map for lovers of the great outdoors. It’s tucked away in the beautiful Clwydian Range and the Dee Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, plus it’s only a 40-minute drive from Snowdonia National Park. There’s plenty for culture lovers to enjoy too, especially in sleepy little villages nearby like Eryrys, Mold, Llanelidan and Cyffylliog. A little further afield you’ll find the bustling towns of Llangollen, Betws-y-Coed and Newtown, as well as the gorgeous cathedral city of Chester just over the border in Cheshire.

Water lovers will want to spend the day at the beach in Llandudno. It’s just as pretty as any of Cornwall’s stretches of shoreline and the perfect spot for a sunny afternoon. The town of Prestatyn, situated in the Vale of Clwyd, is another great seaside destination. Meanwhile, history aficionados can visit the Caer Drewyn Hillfort next to the history-filled town of Carrog. The village of Corwen is also of historical interest due to its connections to Owain Glyndŵr who led a 14-year rebellion against English rule. If you’ve got green fingers, why not pay Dibleys Nurseries a visit? There, you’ll find a few of the United Kingdom’s gold medal-winning potted plants.

From apartments to log cabins, there’s certainly something for everyone when it comes to accommodation in Ruthin. Whether you’re searching for a country cottage with a hot tub or a grand house in the heart of town, we have the perfect property for you at Cottage Holidays. Travelling as a family or looking for a hideaway with great WiFi for a ‘bleisure’ trip? We have you covered. What’s more, our friendly customer service team and best-price guarantee mean you can book with total confidence. Prepare to sit back, relax and enjoy every moment of your Ruthin getaway.
