We stayed at this lovely cottage for a short break last week, there was 6 adults a baby and a whippet, we had plenty of room inside, the kitchen and lounge where lovely, as were the upstairs bedrooms. What a great location, within a short drive of Mold, Bala and LLangolen. Some great walks from the cottage. Helen and Tony were very helpful and friendly, And the weather was fantastic in February.

Hengoed Farm

  • 5 of 5
A wonderful stay in all respects. Spacious house, lovely grounds, appeasing view on all sides, sunset over the hills, absolute calm... The interior decoration is warm, charming, all details are thought of, the level of equipment is first rate... all this is matched only by the kindness of the owners. Helen and Tony were extremely serviceable, never intrusive. All family members (aged from 8 to 45) thoroughly enjoyed their stay. There are plenty of places to visit around, whatever the visitors' interests are and Helen and Tony were very helpful in this respect as well. The whole is just a perfect balance; of course we recommend it, and hope to return soon.

Owner's Response: We are very grateful for this kind review from the Vial family of their holiday at our Cottage. It was really nice to see the children, in particular, enjoy what our farm had to offer - feeding the lambs, giving the cat Thomas a fuss, taking little Joseph (border terrier ) for a walk ( and not forgetting the building of a small dam in a stream to start off a pond we are planning for the "Dell" - which is still there!). It makes our job so much more worthwhile when a family make the most of what the property and the area has to offer as the Vial family did. Many thanks. We would love to see you all again!

Wir hatten eine wunderbare Woche in diesem liebevoll eingerichteten Cottage und haben es bedauert, weiterreisen zu müssen. Es liegt sehr ruhig, aber trotzdem nahe an Ruthin mit allen Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und man ist schnell in verschiedensten Richtungen bei allen möglichen Sehenswürdigkeiten. Auch für Sportler ist das Cottage ein guter Ausgangspunkt, man kann sowohl Radfahren wie auch Joggen. Der Fluss bietet für Kinder einen Abenteuerspielplatz. Besonders bedanken möchten wir uns bei Helen und Tony, die jederzeit ansprechbar und hilfsbereit waren und uns viele hilfreiche Insidertipps gegeben haben (man sollte wirklich "Leonardos" in Ruthin ausprobieren!)

We had a wonderful week in this beautifully decorated cottage and regretted it that we have to leave. It is very quiet, but still close to Ruthin and all needed shops are very close. Yo can reach all possible attractions very fast. For sportsman, the cottage is a good starting point for cycling as well as jogging. The river offers an adventure playground for children. We would especially like to thank Helen and Tony, who were always approachable, very helpful and gave us lots of fantastic insider tips (you really should try "Leonardos" in Ruthin!)

Owner's Response: Very many thanks for this kind review of our holiday cottage. We really enjoyed having guests who seemed to take such pleasure in what we, and the area of North Wales, had to offer them (and left the cottage so clean and tidy when they left!). It was a great pleasure for us having them to stay.

Located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) near English Border with spectacular views of Clwydian Mountain Range and the beautiful Vale of Clwyd. Surrounded by woodland and pasture and overlooking a steep wooded river valley, the area is noted for its landscape and wildlife and ideal for walkers, cyclists, mountain-bikers and many other outdoor pursuits. Hengoed Farm is ideally located for exploring the Conwy Valley and Snowdonia Mountains (1 hour) to the west and the Roman City of Chester (40 minutes), Llangollen (25 minutes) and the castles and landscape of the Borderlands to the east and south. Area is steeped in history, with proportionately more Medieval Castles than anywhere else in the world, as well as the historic towns of Ruthin, Denbigh and Conwy with their fine collections of medieval half-timbered buildings and in the case of Conwy and Denbigh, their ancient town walls. The immediate area is tranquil and unspoilt. The town of Ruthin ( described by Chairman of the National Trust as 'the most charming small town in Wales' ) only 2 miles away with its shops, pubs and restaurants. Pets welcome.
