Venue History

Nantclwyd y Dre is Wales’ oldest house with a timber frame, and stands in the historic town of Ruthin, North Wales and is said to of been built in 1435. It was around this time that many welsh towns were being rebuilt after the rebellious attacks and town burnings committed by Owain Glyndwr via his base at Harlech Castle.

Over the decades the property passed into the hands of many different families, all whom added their own alterations and extensions to the house making it much larger property.

The name Nantclwyd y Dre was thought to of been given to the house in the 1720’s following further extensions which included the distinctive pillared porch
The building went through a change of use and became a school for girls, a lodge for visiting judges, a doctor’s surgery an iron mongers, and a rectory.
In 1984, the house and gardens were sold to Clwyd County Council, where it’s successor Denbigshire County Council created the museum we see today in 2007, displaying period rooms and preserving the property for the public.
