Located in the Clwydian Range and Dee valley AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), the village of Llanbedr DC is wonderfully placed for both residents and visitors alike.
Llanbedr DC is just one mile from the historic market town of Ruthin with its 700 year history, its many shops and attractions. Other historic towns near by include Chester to the east, and Llangollen to the south reached via the beautiful Horseshoe Pass. Just way to the north lie the many coastal towns and beaches of North Wales.
The Clwydian Range, with its highest hill Moel Famau, dominates the eastern edge. Here you can visit Loggerheads Country Park and walk the many footpaths in the area, including the famous Offa’s Dyke Path. Also popular with energetic cyclists, the area gives rise to many challenging routes.
The upland moorland of the Clwydian Range consists of heather, bilberry, gorse and bracken, a very important habitat for wildlife including the rare black grouse, the red grouse, hen harrier, ring ouzel, whinchat and wheatear. An exceptional chain of Iron Age hillforts sit atop the range. The combination of the natural and historic heritage of the Clwydian Range is a truly unique landscape, greatly valued for its beauty, wildlife and archaeology.
One of the most beautiful parts of the village is the ruin of the Old St Peter’s Church. Thanks to the work of the Community Council and generous funding from the Church in Wales and others, this has undergone some conservation works. Find out more about the Old St Peter’s Church here.
