We stayed in Ruthin overnight and we decided to give this attraction a try after walking past it several times. It is very deceiving from the outside because when you get inside it's much bigger than expected and there's so much history to see.

Each room is more interesting than the last with plenty of historical artefacts and information. The garden has been landscaped and provides a restful, relaxing space after your tour inside. We particularly enjoyed watching the bats on the webcam.

Nantclwyd y Dre is truly a hidden gem. An old timber framed house hidden in a side street with a small unassuming notice that it is open. The interior is intimate with plenty of artefacts in each of the rooms to give that lived-in feeling,...More

This is a very well restored/preserved dwelling that provided us with interesting and enjoyable few hours visit. The road frontage belies the size of the house and gardens. There is much more behind the front door than you would expect. Information boards outside of each...More
