Directions

DIRECTIONS TO HENGOED FARM FROM MOLD – If coming into Ruthin from the direction of Mold, directions to Hengoed are as follows :

Upon arrival in Ruthin (@ Tesco roundabout) from direction of Mold, take the 3rd exit signposted “through routes” and “Bala” from roundabout by Tesco’s, go down past fire station (on right) to TEXACO garage (on left). Turn left here (Mwrog street) and follow this street round and down to mini roundabout. Go straight across  mini roundabout and up hill.  Go over brow of hill (church on the right, Cross Keys public house on your left ) and down the other side, taking the next turn on your right (direction Cyffylliog/Bontuchel). Up the hill then along the top and gradually down. After a mile look out for sign on your left to Woodland’s Hall, caravan site and restaurant. DO NOT TAKE THIS TURNING but you will take the next turning on the right which is about 1/10th mile further on. HENGOED is located about 50 yards down this lane on your left (wooden estate gate, stile and footpath sign). If by chance you reach the village of Bontuchel you have gone too far (so turn back!).

Access Statement

The cottage is not suitable for wheelchair-users because the toilet and library/snug downstairs are accessed via a step with insufficient space for a ramp. Being a cottage there are low beams (principally at the bottom of the stairs), sloping ceilings (bathroom and single bedroom) and steep stairs to the upper floor.

Hengoed Farm is a working farm. Farms can always be dangerous. Hengoed Farm is probably less dangerous than most because there is no heavy agricultural machinery. However there are such things as harrows and rollers near the cottage which can be a hazard to an unsupervised younger child. At the rear of the cottage there is a steep bank down to the lower fields and track into the woods. Care is required because in one case the bank runs down to a barbed wire fence, and at the other location it is completely unfenced. Again, these are not intrinsically dangerous areas, but extra vigilance is required of carers where there are younger children.

A river is located at the bottom of the lower field below the cottage. This is a fast-flowing river at most times, although except after heavy rainfall it is rarely deep. People often paddle there, but care is required because the current can be quite strong. There is a footbridge  below Hengoed Farm. This bridge is not the responsibility of Hengoed Farm, but is on the public footpath. Take care when crossing in wet weather. The bridge has sides which can be used as support when crossing.

Hengoed Farm has sheep (blue and white Texel) and horses. But care should always be taken near livestock. In particular guests should not enter any field in which there are rams. Please consult with owner before venturing into any of the fields at the farm.
