Sleeping two people in one bedroom, this lovely single storey cottage is in an idyllic location a mile from Ruthin.

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.


Dog friendly tranquillity
We regularly stay in cottages for short breaks and recently stayed at Distyl for the first time. We chose this place as pet friendly and on the doorstep of Ruthin which is a charming little place. Cottage was immaculately clean and very well laid out and warm!! The owners were very friendly and welcoming, made you feel at home. We had snow and ice so made use of Sky movies and sports when we weren't reading. There is a 40 min circular walk from the cottage (map in cottage) which was ideal for a quick dog walk. Lots formal walks nearby too inc Llyn Brenig and Loggerheads. Only negatives are the WiFi which is very weak and intermittent (weak signal and only in living room) and is advertised as having a washing machine but this is actually in owners own house. Looking forward to going again.

Peaceful idyll with stars!!
We only had 2 nights in the cottage but we loved it. On arrival the owners were warm, friendly and relaxed and we felt at home right away. The cottage is really well appointed and the bed is large and comfortable. Our dogs loved it too, with the woods just a 2 minute walk up the lane - follow the maps that Bev will explain!! Ruthin is a nice old town to have a wander round and on the very clear night we had you could see an amazing star scape across the sky. We relaxed, we just stopped for a while after a very hectic few weeks and months and we would definitely return.

The cottage was beautiful. The owners are so friendly and really make you feel at home. There is lovely scenery and great walks to go on with the dogs. Overall a fabulous holiday, we would recommend to anyone.
Miss Roc

It was lovely, snug and cosy with walks through the woods straight from the door. The beds were extremely comfortable with good pillows so we slept well. Couldn't fault anything at all.
Ms Smith

The property was very spacious with modern fixtures and fittings and finished with excellent taste. The owner was very friendly and informative. The quiet location gave us everything we wanted for a well earned long weekend of rest and recuperation. We would certainly recommend to others.
