We have stayed with Dave & Marilyn several times over the years and keep going back! They are extremely friendly and helpful when wanting to know the best places to walk and of course to eat. The last time we stayed we shared a bottle of Moet with them as it was our anniversary. The cottage is beautifully presented and... More

What a lovely review! We are always pleased to see you (bottle of Moet or not!). We're so glad you enjoy our breakfasts. As part of the Wales: Year of Adventure we're going to try something very adventurous for breakfast - laver bread. You should come back and try it. We'd love to see you again More

We were warmly greeted by Marilyn and Dave with us still trying to get over the beauty of this farm. Our room was spacious, warm and spotlessly clean, the breakfasts superb. Dave, being a local of many years, gave us recommendations and directions to all of the local sights even making the necessary maps available. Nearby Ruthen is a treasure... More

We had stayed for two nights at Plas Efenechtyd Cottage B&B whilst attending a wedding in the local area. Dave and Marilyn were excellent hosts with a very warm welcome on arrival. The room was large and comfortable, with an excellent en-suite, and had great views over the surrounding countryside. Both the room and en-suite were spotlessly clean throughout our... More

This gem of a house, sits snugly on the side of a beautiful welsh valley; it has gorgeous walks with far-reaching views straight from its doorstep. But the icing on the cake is the result of all the hard work that has been put in by David and Marilyn. The house is spick and span, full of charm and antiques... More

We had two nights at Plas Efenechtyd Cottage when visiting Ruthin for a wedding. David and Marilyn were great hosts, warm, welcoming and conversational, very helpful with practical things like maps and directions and a fascinating source of information about the house and the area. Our room was cosy and comfortable with views of hills and sheep rambling about. The... More

We had two lovely nights at this farmhouse B&B near Ruthin which was well located to explore northern Wales. When we first arrived, Dave and Marilyn had gotten confused as to what day it was and weren't expecting us, but as we were early, they sent us off to Bodnant Gardens and Conwy Castle, and when we returned, our large...

We stayed for one night with our daughter and son-in-law to babysit our three month old grandson while they attended a local wedding. We received a very warm welcome, the accommodation is first class and the breakfast delightful. All of us but especially the baby enjoyed our stay very much. Thank you.

Spent 6 days here at the beginning of July. Wonderful setting between rolling hills and sunken lanes - beware if you meet a car coming your way!! You might have to reverse a long way.

Thanks for the review. Good to know we get most things right!

Very nice accommodation on the outskirts of Ruthin. Requires driving on a narrow one-lane road to get there -- but all the Welsh happily back up for you. The people we met on the road backed up to a passing point before we could decide what to do. After the first trip on the road, the drive became no beg... More
