Dog-friendly accommodation with private hot tubs


With stunning views in all directions, Rivercatcher is a truly unique place to stay. All nine propertties are 5* and dog-friendly, with secure private gardens and private hot tubs to sink into after a day spent exploring North Wales. Each property also shares the extensive surrounding gardens and riverside walks of its small, charming estate. 

Our games room, 'The Lodge', is accessible for all of our guests and is perfect for large groups for dinners and other celebrations.

What better way to explore the breath-taking landscape of the Berwyn Mountains than on foot? Wales' highest waterfall, Pistyll Rhaeadr, is also nearby. 

We look forward to welcoming you.

Meet the owner

Andy

Hello my name is Andy, the owner/manager of Rivercatcher Holiday Cottages. Rivercatcher started as a family project back in 2012 with my father in law Ron. Ron, had spent many an hour fly-fishing on the opposite bank of the River Dee which surrounds the property. The realisation hit that we wanted to create a small group of unique cottages and log cabins to enable families and couples alike to escape to, but still indulge in five-star accommodation. After the challenging and rewarding journey of turning Cilan and it’s outbuilding into the five cottages and four log cabins we have today, we hope our guests fall in love with Rivercatcher and the area just as we did.
