Description

Feel like the king and queen of the castle in this romantic retreat with open fire, heavily carved four poster bed and Victorian bathroom.


The romantic retreat of Hen Wrych Hall Tower features a heavily carved king-size four poster bed, Victorian style bathroom and an open working fireplace. Less than 5 minutes’ walk from the North Wales coastline and beach, and a mile from local pubs, restaurants and shops. It is ideally situated for sightseeing, there is a golf course nearby and walks within local woods and hills. Bodnant Gardens, Conwy and several castles are within short driving distance, and the pretty Victorian seaside resort of Llandudno is easily accessible for the day.
Grade II* listed, this castellated gate tower is set into the original curtain wall of the Grade I listed Gwrych Castle, and overlooks the 500 year old Hen Wrych Hall, once home to the poet Felicia Hemans, whose famous poem was The Boy Stood on the Burning Deck’.
Downstairs the cosy living area provides a delightful space for relaxing and a wood-burning stove will be a pleasure to return to in the winter months after a busy days sightseeing. A hand-carved mahogany staircase leads up to the first floor bathroom fitted with a sumptuously deep slipper bath and original Thomas Crapper toilet cistern. The attention to detail continues as you reach the second floor and the master bedroom. Here you will find a spectacular, heavily carved, Elizabethan-style four poster bed, the perfect complement to this romantic retreat.
Gwrych Castle is ranked as one of the most important castellated houses of the picturesque style in Britain. Originally completed around 1822, the castle, its associated towers, lodges and park walls were designed by Lord and Lady Bamford Hesketh and Thomas Rickman, the architect and architectural theorist. The ground floor of the Tower still features one of his original cast iron windows. The wooden front door is also original and traces of scratched pictures of period sailing ships, possibly left by Napoleanic prisoners of war, can still be seen.
Extensive renovation work was carried out by the present owners in collaboration with the local Conwy conservation officer. Unique features such as the camber headed front doorway and original bread oven have been preserved and a specially commissioned metal window was added to match the Rickman window downstairs.

Beamed living/dining room, wood-burning stove, flagged floor. Kitchen area. First floor: Bathroom with shower over deep slipper bath and toilet. Second floor: Double bedroom with four-poster bed.

    We stayed for three nights in the beginning of March from the States. The place was presented perfectly. Clean and everything in its own place. Owners were friendly. A walk to ruined castle, tower and cave (castle was awesome). Drove all over in different directions, the location is great. Some reviews suggest the road noise is too loud, but we did not feel this is the case and my wife is a light sleeper. Those statements must be from people who are all around difficult to please, imo. The road noise at worst is like distant waves crashing on shore, which is actually quite soothing. Definitely recommend.

    Wonderful, cosy and relaxing. Lovely additions like mead and pottery to buy. Biscuits, milk, tea and wine on arrival. A little cold in the bedroom on the first night but we temporarily moved the mirror (which blocks the radiator) and it was warm after that. Everyone we met was lovely. Thank you

    Hen Wyrch Hall Tower is a stunning and romantic holiday let. It has ample amounts of character and makes you feel like you have walked into the 1500’s. The attention to detail is remarkable and whilst this has been sympathetically decorated, it is still comfortable for our modern day needs. Although it is located next to a busy road, you very rarely hear it inside the thick castle walls. The beach is a 5 minute stroll and we would highly recommend the walk to derelict Gwrych Castle. The beautiful town of Conwy is not far and is definitely worth a visit. In terms of restraunts we would recommend a short drive to the small, picturesque village of St George to Kimmel Arms. We also had a lovely Sunday roast at the 13th century ale house The Wheatsheaf Inn in Betws yn Rhys. The owners of Hen Wyrch Hall Tower are very welcoming and provided us with a lovely welcome pack, and we were invited to take apples from their garden if we wanted to do a bit of home baking. We will definitely be returning to Hen Wyrch Hall in the near future!

    We had a fabulous time in our own little castle which is wonderful with no expense spared. Every room is very spacious with lots of lovely touches which made our stay really special. It's a perfect get away for a romantic stay in Wales. We loved it!

    The main downside to the property was the road noise from the ajacent road and the A55.
