Distyll Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
Distyll is a welcoming single storey property on the owners' smallholding a mile from Ruthin. There is a bedroom which can be offered as a king-size double or a twin room. There is a bathroom with bath and shower cubicle, a kitchen with dining area and a sitting room. Outside are lovely gardens with a stream, off road parking, and access to walking paths, some of which take you right down into Ruthin itself. Distyll makes an ideal base for those looking for a peaceful escape within easy reach of amenities and attractions.

Ruthin has its origins in the 13th Century and was a popular market-town. Evidence of its long and illustrious history can be found in the beams and brickwork in buildings throughout the town. Pendref Chapel is Ruthin's oldest chapel, dating back to around 1827. Other impressive medieval buildings include Maen Huail, where, according to legend, Huail was beheaded for trying to scupper King Arthur's quest for true love. In addition to sites of historical interest, many of the pubs and inns in Ruthin have their own tales to tell, such as the 16th Century Myddleton Arms; the site of many cock-fights and having an unusual window arrangement known locally as ‘the eyes of Ruthin'. Other attractions near to Ruthin include the striking ruins of Denbigh Castle and Valle Crucis Abbey, which dates back to the 13th Century.

Famous for its choirs, stunning mountain ranges and beautiful valleys, this wonderful country has something for everyone. From Snowdonia in North Wales to the Brecon Beacons and the Pembrokeshire Coast in the South.

An excellent choice of cottage; warm, comfortable, peaceful and very relaxing. It was well located to tour the north Wales area, it also had walks from the doorstep- ideal for the dogs. The owners were friendly, always on hand when needed and also had a good knowledge of the area. We would recommend this cottage to anyone.

We've had the best week imaginable in this wonderful cottage; it really was a home from home. The owners were fantastic hosts and very helpful too. The finishing touches in this cottage were second to none. I can't fault this accommodation in any way whatsoever, it's was beautifully decorated and very well equipped and very warm and cosy with that underfloor heating (which I miss terribly) We will definitely be returning next year.

I loved absolutely everything about this property! The owners were very welcoming and extremely helpful and despite living in close proximity were in no way intrusive.

February 2015
This cottage is absolutely wonderful. Every room was tastefully furnished and so very comfortable. There were so many extra little touches that made our stay so enjoyable. Daisy my brown Labrador especially enjoyed the tray of dog biscuits waiting for her! We relaxed from the moment we arrived Bev and Phil the owners were so very helpful and their beautiful dog Annie and cats Will and Flossy were a joy. Not forgetting the sheep waiting for you at the bottom of the garden! (Behind a fence). It is such a relaxing location and so close to great dog walks where you are more then likely going to be the only ones there. We did not want to leave and will most certainly return. The place is so beautiful and I look forward to returning in the Spring or Summer. Do not hesitate in booking this cottage, it really is outstanding.

September 2013
A very comfortable, spotlessly clean and cosy cottage with an interesting history. The owners were extremely welcoming and friendly. Including their dog Annie who would often welcome us back from a days outing. Excellent location. A week wasn't long enough! Would definitely recommend this cottage.Even thinking about going back next year.
June 2013
The owners Bev & Phil are the most welcoming hosts we have met, nothing was too much trouble. Plenty of dog walks in the adjacent woods and a dog friendly beach at Talacre, which is quite rare these days.The property is very high spec with no expense spared. We really enjoyed our stay and the guest book confirms other visitors did too. The privacy of the property also enhances its location. We wouldn't hesitate to visit again and recommend it fully.

Had an amazing week in this beautifully decorated superbly appointed accommodation. The location was so pretty and quiet. Bev, Phil and Annie the dog gave such a warm welcome with a bottle of wine and sweeties. They provided all the little extras that made the holiday perfect. Beautiful walks nearby and many pubs that serve good food. Can't wait to go back!

Absolutely lovely property in stunning surroundings. Dog walkers and explorers paradise. A lovely romantic get away. Would strongly recommend for couples with or without pets. Facilities were excellent, will definitely be returning in the future.
September 2012
One of the best equipped holiday cottages we have stayed in.The accommodation was excellent and fitted out to a very high standard, the garden was beautiful with a lovely weeping willow and a stream.The owners Bev and Phil who live on the site made us very welcome and thier sheep dog Anne came to greet you when you came back from your days out. Ruthin is a very quaint little country town not far from Chester 25 miles, Llangollen 15 miles, Llandudno 35 miles . The Old Cross Keys at the end of the lane about 10 mins walk serves very good food, it is advisable to book we missed the steak night on the tuesday because they were fully booked
September 2012
cottage done to a really high standard - owners are also on site and nothing is too much trouble. Lovely quiet location, but only a short drive from shops/pubs/etc. totally recommend thia as a place to stay, would happily visit again
