The Denbighshire region

Bwlch Cottage is at the end of a quiet lane in the village of Llanbedr Dyffryn Clwyd, near Ruthin in North Wales.

Bwlch Cottage is located just off the A494 Ruthin – Mold road and is approx 1.5 miles from Ruthin town centre.

It is a great location having easy access to the main road (A494) yet surrounded by farmland and having amazing views across the Vale of Clwyd towards Ruthin and, on a clear day, Snowdonia and Cadair Idris.

The Clwydian Range with the highest peak being Moel Famau is directly behind Bwlch Cottage and a little further is Loggerheads Country Park.

We are only 40 minutes from Chester or the North Wales coast, an hour from Liverpool, Betws y Coed or Conwy, and only 30 minutes from Llangollen, Llyn Brenig and Wrexham.

For those interested in geography, the Vale of Clwyd is a rift valley. Bwlch Cottage sits on the easternmost side of the valley on the steep side wall. That's why we have such great views!


Our location in the village of Llanbedr is ideal if you are working in Ruthin, Mold, Denbigh, St Asaph, Bodelwyddan, Chester or Wrexham and just a hour from Liverpool or Manchester Airport.

If you are on holiday it is a lovely location to be based as you can take day trips across to Snowdonia, Portmeirion, Caernarfon, Bangor, Anglesey, Llandudno, Conwy. Even nearer are the towns of Llangollen, Betws Y Coed, Bala, Denbigh and Mold.

There are lots of walking opportunities with the Clwydian Range and Loggerheads Country Park nearby. See the Out and About Guide to the Clwydian Ranfe and Dee Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there are lots of event listings.

There is plenty to do in the historic market town of Ruthin; if you want to get up close to farm animals or experience a livestock auction, why not visit Ruthin Farmers Auction at Glastir on a Tuesday or Thursday when they hold regular weekly sales or frequent special sales on other days.

If you want to wander around town there are plenty of interesting things to see at Ruthin Gaol, Nant Clwyd Y Dre, Ruthin Craft Centre, the Ruthin Art Trail
