At the end of a long, meandering lane, deep in the rolling, North Wales countryside lies this charmingly renovated self-catering retreat. The historic town of Denbigh is only six miles away, and yet will you feel so far from everything that the stars at night will feel close enough to touch. Featuring stone walls, exposed beams, and brass-and-iron bed frames, come to relax in style at Hafan Hiraethog and experience the beauty of time and space.

Mountain views and space to breathe

Sure to delight families and friends in search of unspoiled remoteness, Hafan Hiraethog has been cleverly designed to combine the spaciousness of its location with a cosy sense of shelter. Nowhere in the house is this better captured than in the contemporary, oak conservatory. There, guests can relax and enjoy the panoramic views of the Clwydian Mountains and countryside.

Within the main house, the fully-equipped kitchen is made to feel airy thanks to its large windows and French doors. Through the French doors, guests can step out onto the patio. Dine al fresco, share thoughts and stories, then watch the sun give way to the stars while sat in the private hot tub. When the night gets cool, wander back inside and warm up by the wood burner in the sitting room.

Bedrooms and bathrooms

Hafan Hiraethog features a double room, full of character and style, on the ground floor. Guests staying in this room have a shower room with WC available to them through the utility room. Tucked under the gables on the first floor are a second double room and a twin room. These two rooms have access to a stylish tiled bathroom with WC.


A starter bag of firewood is provided and additional bags of coal are available at £8 per bag, while additional logs will cost £3 per bag. We are also happy to provide a high chair, and travel cot, but ask that you please request these upon booking. WiFi available.

Special Note: The ground floor double bedroom and the wet room may be suitable for less mobile guests.


Wonderful, very secluded and traditional with a well thought out renovation. The owners are the most helpful, kindest people we have met in a while. Perfect.
