Nantclwyd y Dre, Historic House and Gardens in Ruthin will be open on Saturday the 9th and Sunday the 10th of December for a Christmas themed weekend.

The three-time Visit Wales Hidden Gem award winning property will be showcasing ‘Christmas through the ages’ with different parts of the house decorated with period appropriate Christmas décor.

Opening times for both days will be from 10am-4pm, with last entry at 3pm. Normal admission charges will apply, and there is no need to book, simply turn up on the day.

Visitors will also get to try their hand at making some traditional Christmas themed crafts and there will also be a Christmas trail open for kids.


Kate Thomson, Nantclwyd y Dre Manager said:

“We look forward to sharing with you how Christmas was celebrated through the ages at one of the oldest timber framed town houses in Wales right in the heart of Ruthin.

Experience making some traditional Christmas crafts while enjoying a cup of tea in the parlour and the children can enjoy a seasonal garden trail in the stunning gardens.”


Councillor Emrys Wynne, Lead member for the Welsh Language, Culture and Heritage said:

“Nantclwyd y Dre is a historic gem that we are lucky enough to have on our doorstep here in Denbighshire.

The historic property offers a unique exploration of over 500 years of history and is a brilliant place to visit during the festive period.”
