The Loft description

Holiday home
Situated in the old grounds of Eyarth Hall, this 18th century property is a stylishly converted stone-built barn, set in an attractive rural location. In addition to plenty of character charm and original features, the property is also fitted with contemporary fixtures and fittings such as a quality oak kitchen, solid oak floors and doors and an inviting bathroom. With such wonderful countryside surrounding the building, visitors will never be short of things to do and a number of trails and cycle paths are within easy reach.

Situated two miles south of Ruthin is the small village of Llanfair Dyffryn Clwyd, reached via the breathtaking Horseshoe Pass. With its imposing 15th Century church, the village is also home to a traditional pub which serves food and is only a few minutes drive from other local amenities. Ruthin itself is over 700 years old and boasts many half-timbered buildings clustered around St Peter's Square. Although the town is packed with many interesting shops, the main attraction is possibly its renowned craft centre, which is home to a number of internationally recognised artists and craftspeople. Also in the near vicinity are Lake Brenig, Moel Famau, Loggerheads Country Park and Clocaenog Forest – all of which provide excellent walking and cycling opportunities. Snowdonia National Park and the Welsh coast are also within easy driving distance.

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.

Oil central heating with woodburner in living area. Rangemaster cooker with double oven, grill & 5 ring gas hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, flat screen TV, DVD. Fuel, power & starter pack of wood for woodburner inc. in rent. Bed linen & towels inc. in rent. Travel cot by prior arrangement. Off road parking for 2 cars.

The Loft was so comfortable we both felt so relaxed and would definitely return it is in beautiful countryside with easy access to all of Wales.
Mr Piper
September 2015
A wonderfully spacious cottage for two people in a superb location. Although spacious the main living area was cosy thanks to the high standard of the furniture and fixtures and fittings. The same high standard was also found in the bedroom, bathroom and kitchen area. As a family or as a couple we have been to over 60 holiday cottages during the last 35 years, The Loft ranks as one of the best. We cannot wait to go again.
Ms Nedin
May 2015
Excellent standard of accommodation and was pleased to be able to bring the dog. Had a magnificent view!
Mrs Hewitt

ThThe night skies were amazing. The property was warm and cosy. The scenery was second to none.
Dr Reid
November 2014
The Loft is a gorgeous cottage in an idyllic place, close to amenities if you need them but remote enough to feel secluded. The decor is warm and cosy and the log burner a great feature. Very dog friendly area and great walks.
Mrs Secker
April 2014
The cottage was in a really peaceful location, a great place to base your visit from lots of different areas to explore, walks from right out of your front door, also not far from coast, national parks, quaint villages and pubs and very dog friendly. The pictures of the holiday cottage didn't do it justice, it is quite beautiful.
Miss Parnham
June 2014
The cottage was so secluded and fantastically silent aside from the wildlife. It was very beautifully kept and perfect for our little holiday escape. We walked for miles and were in the middle of nowhere. The views were outstanding and the local people were so sweet and helpful. Overall, from the second we arrived until we drove away, the holiday was exactly how we wanted it to be. Thank you!
Ms Streeting
October 2014
Beautiful views and scenery. A gem of a cottage with wooden beams and a log burner. A splendid cottage which we would visit time and time again as a home from home.
Mr Price
October 2014
I liked everything about the cottage. I particularly liked the skylights in the roof, you can lie in bed in the morning and watch squirrels playing in the trees and the cosy fire in the evening.
Mr Hickman
October 2013
A wonderful property in a wonderful location, everything I expected and more. Perfect for the break we were looking for.
Mr Mrs Edwards
September 2013
Cottage spacious yet cosy. Lovely quiet setting. Stunning views from the cottage of the Clwydian Mountain Range. Lovely town of Ruthin with its local shops nearby, the butchers is a must for your fresh meat and fish prepared on request. Pleasant walks straight from the cottage or Clwydian Mountain Range just 10 minutes by car, Snowdon an hour away. Cycling from the cottage along the country lanes and bridle ways or a visit to the Llandegla Cycling Centre for the more exciting experienced cyclists. Chester 30 minutes away with lovely shops and historic buildings. Conwy and Llandudno Bay only 30 minutes away. We packed a lot into our two weeks but coming back to the cottage each evening was very relaxing
Mr Adcock

The cottage was perfect, the location beautiful.
Mrs Wakefield
February 2014
From booking the cottage with the fabulous and helpful staff to leaving, it was a truly fantastic break. The location of the barn is totally outstanding, not to mention the surprise we got when we arrived. It is a home from home, I was very pleasantly surprised at the high standards. The whole barn has been so beautifully restored and thought out, the furnishings are first class. We will be booking again very soon, really fabulous and magical place.
Mrs Thompson
September 2013
The Loft has been the most lovely holiday home we have stayed in, everything you needed was there. Would like to go back. Really recommend this holiday home.
Mr Murphy
February 2013
Nice relaxing location with outstanding views, comfortable bed, plenty of hot water and towels etc. The wood burner was a welcome feature and there were some nice touches like fresh flowers and Welsh cakes.
Mrs Kew
May 2013
A lovely location and a very nice cottage. Everything we needed and more. The pictures on the site did not do this accommodation justice. They looked nice but it was far better than expected; certainly a wow feel to it. Spacious and comfortable, can totally recommend. Would we return... a resounding YES!
Mrs Robinson
October 2012
The cottage was larger than expected and spotlessly clean. It was the most comfortable cottage we have stayed in. The views were spectacular and it was a very peaceful location. It was furnished to the highest standard and the heating was lovely and warm on the chilly nights.
Ms Rabone
November 2012
The cottage was like home from home, felt really comfortable and relaxed. We could visit many places of interest as there were many brochures available to help us decide. There was a lovely touch of fresh flowers and Welsh Cakes on our arrival. The view from the cottage was so beautiful and we had peace and quiet for the whole stay. BLISS
Mr Billing
November 2012
Spacious, comfortable, quiet, cottage with good quality fixtures fittings. Excellent location with so much to see and do, we'll just have to re-visit in the future.
Mr Tucker
December 2011
The Loft was ideally situated for good shopping in Liverpool/Chester. It was nice and quiet in and around the cottage which made for a very relaxing time.
Ms Playford
July 2011
Cottage was in a lovely secluded area with wonderful views, but also close enough to busy town. We booked as a base for golf courses and weren't disappointed.
Mrs Graham
November 2011
Excellent location for exploring North Wales. Lovely scenery from the property and not too far away to get anything you need. Property furnished to a high standard. Lovely place to stay and would definitely recommend.
Mr Tulloch
March 2011
The location was quiet with a beautiful view, and within easy reach of a host of places of interest, walking areas and towns to explore. The Loft worked very well as a comfortable and relaxing base, excellent!
Mr Goodyear
April 2011
The location of the cottage was perfect for exploring North Wales, the cottage also felt very homely and was finished to a very high standard. The open plan living room/ kitchen was a particular highlight for us.
Mr Sharples
May 2011
Stunning views from the sitting room windows, access to local walks and staying in a lovely well-appointed cottage.
Mrs Trevey
June 2010
I just had a great time. Loved 'The Loft'. Could easily have stayed there and not come home. Fantastic scenery, lovely and peaceful and a good base for exploring the sights of North Wales.
Mrs Ford
July 2010
The cottage is in an ideal location with excellent views over the surrounding countryside. It was a real 'home from home' (but with better views!)
Mrs Challiner
September 2010
The Loft was even better than the photographs and description in the brochure. It is a beautiful property in a stunning location - quite but not too far away from great days out. It is finished to a very high standard with all 'mod cons' making our holiday relaxing.
Mr Drage
September 2010
Everything was fantastic, without doubt the best property we have stayed in. Everyone had a great time.
Mr Byrne
October 2010
The accommodation was excellent and exceeded our expectations. The weather was also very good - which makes a big difference in North Wales!
Mrs Anthony
June 2010
The loft was beautiful, very relaxing and situated in beautiful countryside. Excellent if you enjoy walking and want a cosy little getaway. I would recommend it to all those people who live very busy hectic lives.
Mr Gibson
February 2010
The cottage was fantastic. Nice and relaxing place and a good base to see the local sights and also visit Chester Zoo. Liked the open plan living/dining/ kitchen area and the big bath.

Excellent cottage for a couple.
Dr Ng

Great location and lovely, well presented cottage
Mrs Tobin
May 2010
The location, facilities and the charm of the cottage were great. The views were spectacular. There was somewhere to walk the dog. Lots of places to drive to and see the wonderful countryside. There were farm shops and a Tesco Co-Op nearby to help us stock up with anything we needed. This holiday is a must if total rest and relaxation is required.
Ms Banfield
November 2009
Liked the general ambiance of property, beautiful views and the thoughtful touches eg fresh flowers. All in all, good value.
Mr Woodland
November 2009
It was a beautiful property and the photos were an excellent representation of what the cottage actually was. Ruthin town was lovely and so were the locals.
Mr Cuthbert
December 2009
Enjoyed the countryside views from most of the widows, secluded area, exposed cottage beams, woodburning stove.
Ms Law
January 2010
We had a lovely holiday. The Loft was really beautiful, in lovely settings, perfect for us with our dog.
Mrs Dedman
August 2009
Liked The Loft for the peace and quiet this place offered to escape the rat race of London. Also lots to do and places to visit in the area. Liked every bit of the holiday, shame it went too quick.
Mr Whitford
September 2009
The Loft is set in lovely surroundings with gorgeous views. It is also near lots of things to do, we found we ran out of time and could have stayed longer exploring the area. It was a proper relaxation break, baths every night and chilled champagne in the evening (as we were on honeymoon!). We would definitely recommend and would love to go back ourselves.
Mr Goodman
June 2009
The cosiness of the cottage was like a home from home, and the views where spectacular. It was so peaceful and serene. The area as a whole is lovely, and the people so friendly and helpful.
Ms Topps
March 2009
We liked the cottage, the peaceful surroundings and beautiful countryside. A good base for getting to places and lots of good places to eat and drink nearby. Will definitely be going there again.
Ms Butler
May 2009
The quiet location made for an extremely relaxing break. The cottage was ideally located to explore a number of locations, but also some very nice walks on the doorstep.
Ms Smith
January 2009
Cottage nice and warm.
Miss Foster

Mr Kitchen

Owners were very friendly. Cottage and surroundings perfectly quiet with great views of the valley. We are already thinking of going again.
Miss Dews
October 2008
Everything about the cottage was superb; from the location and views, to the fresh flowers in the living area and bedroom. The property is beautiful, retaining plenty of charming features, coupled with all the mod cons we have become so accustomed to. Perfect for a romantic getaway. 10 out of 10!
Mrs Wakefield
June 2008
An excellent cottage in a tranquil rural setting, surrounded by the sights and sounds of country wildlife. The interior was well laid out in a traditional style with exposed beams, a feature stone wall and a log burner. We would love to return.
Dr Tomlinson
April 2008
Lovely property, great location Clean and well designed
Mr Andrews
April 2008
An absolutely excellent holiday with fabulous walks and marvellous accommodation.
Ms Jones
May 2008
We really liked the cottage and thought that is was better than it looked in the brochure. We liked the rural setting and the privacy that the cottage offered. It was the perfect place to relax and we liked the open plan layout as we could cook and chat. The log burner was also a nice feature.
June 2007
We really enjoyed the fact that The Loft was in a secluded area but only a couple of miles to the nearest town. When we walked into the cottage it had a really good feel to it. Usually cottages for two people are a bit cramped, but not this property. It was well presented and plenty of space. We would definitely go back, especially if you wanted a place away for peace and quiet with good views thrown in.
Mrs James
August 2007
The loft was excellent, done to a very high standard. We will be going back next year.
Mr Hebron
November 2007
Excellent property. Well furnished, very comfortable, everything we wanted. We will not hesitate to return.

Miss Palmer

We had an excellent stay at the Loft, it is beautifully done out and very comfortable. We felt very relaxed there and really enjoyed our stay. It was exactly what we wanted, we want to go back as we had such a good time there.
December 2013
This has been our second time at the Loft and we love the place. Looking forward to our next visit in 2014.

This was a very pleasant week's break away from it all in the beautiful Welsh countryside in Llanfair Dyffryn Clwyd. We were right at the foot of the Clwydian mountain range, so amazing views were to be seen from the windows of this cosy cottage. It was magical to look at the mountain range dusted with snow, while inside we had the log burner blazing. There are plenty of good walks in the locality, Ruthin itself is a charming village, and it was easy to go a little further afield to the likes of Betws -y-Coed, Llangollen and Llandudno.
February 2011
The Loft is a beautiful rental. We were greeted with a home that was warm and decorated to the highest standards.. the owner even included Christmas decorations! I loved every minute of staying there. There are a couple of things that need attention but apart from that, it couldn't have been more idyllic. Thank you so much to the owners- no detail overlooked.

August 2012
In spite of being awarded five ticks (top marks) in Sykes Cottages brochure, we were extremely disappointed with what we found. Top of a whole list of faults was the fact that the shower didn't function properly and this fault had been first highlighted in the visitors' book three years ago. Next the hot water supply to both the kitchen and the bathroom was virtually non existent. The general upkeep was shoddy with bare wiires on the electric towel rail in the bathroom; a light not working for which there was no sparere bulb; an empty electrical socket; a large cobweb in the corner of the ceiling; filthy garden furniture, etc.
Mrs Matthews
May 2007
It was just all we imagined and more really. The surroundings were great and we had such a lovely time. We wanted a peaceful break and we definitely had one . 10/10.
November 2010
A wonderful holiday home for taking a relaxing break away from it all, with great views of the Welsh countryside. With out doubt the best holiday cottage we have had to date. Absolutely terrific.
January 2011
Views were stunning, location was great, peaceful & quiet. The negatives were uncomfortable settee, lots of cobwebs on all beams, water pressure very low. No complimentary logs for fire, fire not cleaned out.
December 2009
The cottage was beautifully prepared with fresh flowers and tea and cakes! It was so nice it was hard to leave it. The local area was so scenic with rabbits everywhere you went. The views from the cottage were breathtaking adn the people were warm and friendly. Ruthin was lovely and we would recommend the walk around Llyn Brennig. Denbigh had everything to offer and the pubs and restaurants were great value for money. Caernarfon Castle was amazing! We would also recommend the drive to Chester is was great for shopping and seeing the sights and the town cryer was hilarious! Thanks for a great stay, it was the most relaxing time ever.
June 2010
Very well done conversion. the lounge, dining room and bedroom were excellent. If I was to mention a defect it would have to be the power shower, which was in need of repair or repalcement. that aside, everyting was as we expected and we enjoyed our stay.
