Our Inspector's view

Griffin Inn is at the heart of the of village of Llanbedr Dyffryn Clwyd, near Offa’s Dyke Path and a short distance from Ruthin with its medieval buildings, narrow streets and independent shopping. The mid 19th century Gothic style exterior is complimented by a 2020 total interior refurbishment creating a wide range of eclectic styled areas ideal for casual or more formal food consumption. Five very well equipped bedrooms are matched by modern stylish en-suites and a warm welcome is assured.

About the area

Discover Denbighshire

The north-east Wales county of Denbighshire shares a name – though not the same borders – with one of Wales’s thirteen historic counties. It includes the seaside holiday towns of Rhyl and Prestatyn; the medieval county town of Denbigh; and the tiny cathedral town of St Asaph.

Pretty Llangollen in the south of the county is part of the 11-mile UNESCO World Heritage Site beginning at the Horseshoe Falls, in Denbighshire’s Dee Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), and following the Llangollen Canal along its length to Thomas Telford’s cast iron Pontcysyllte Aqueduct just over the border in neighbouring Wrexham.

Today, the county is predominantly rural, with sheep and cattle rearing in the upland areas. Much of the economy is based around tourism, with plenty of holiday cottages and B&Bs available around the seaside towns, while attractions further inland include plenty of castles – try Rhuddlan, Denbigh, Dinas Bran or Bodelwyddan – the Llangollen–Corwen heritage railway and the Victorian Ruthin Gaol.
