Welcome to Hengoed Farm HolidaysHengoed Farm and Medieval Hall is a Holiday property set in idyllic countryside 2 miles from the historic medieval market town of Ruthin. Located overlooking the Vale of Clwyd, with panoramic views of the Clwydian Range Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the site has been continuously occupied since at least the early 14th Century. The centrepiece is a Grade 11* Listed early 15th Century Medieval Cruck Hall House now used as a Barn, one of the oldest in Wales.
Attached to the Medieval Hall House is an 18th/19th Century cart (or Coach) House/Granary. This has been converted into a limewashed traditional stone cottage, with original oak and slate features as well as a wood-burning stove. It is furnished and decorated to the highest standard, and provides characterful and comfortable accommodation for the visitor with a definite “homely” feel.
This cottage is available for holiday lettings throughout the year, is the only letting on the property, and has been Graded 5* by VisitWales (Welsh Tourist Authority). Both buildings form part of a Smallholding extending to 20 acres of pasture and woodland, in a secluded yet accessible position overlooking a steeply wooded river valley with stunning views in all directions.
The area provides superb access for walkers, cyclists and riders within the valley and in the surrounding hills. An excellent network of footpaths, bridleways, tracks and lanes extends in all directions from Hengoed Farm. Those who just want to relax can enjoy the peace and tranquility of Hengoed Farm itself, take in the views and enjoy the abundance of its wildlife, ancient Oaks and rolling pasture, and a wooded river valley provides an attractive riverside walk down into the Vale of Clwyd from just below the Cottage.
Hengoed Farm is also a convenient base from which to explore the beautiful landscape and rich historical heritage of North Wales and the Welsh Borderlands : Medieval castles and historic houses (Wales has a higher concentration of Castles than anywhere else in the world), the Clwydian range of Hills with the Offa’s Dyke Path, and the hills, valleys, forests, lakes and moors of the wild area known as Mynydd Hiraethog that starts just to the west of Hengoed Farm
The Mountains of the Snowdonia National Park are about an hour away, the coast 30 minutes, and there are many pretty villages, country pubs and quiet lanes to explore. Hengoed Farm is only 2 miles from the historic Medieval town RUTHIN with most of the facilities a visitor would need.
RUTHIN is described by Simon Jenkins, journalist, broadcaster and Chairman of the National Trust in his book ‘WALES Churches, Houses and Castles’ Allen Lane 2008 as : “…the most charming small town in Wales, a match for England’s Rye, Broadway or Lavenham. Every prospect pleases … .” It is well worth a look, with some fine small shops, markets and eating houses for the visitor. Not to mention many beautiful medieval and Georgian buildings.
