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.

    Lovely weekend stay at the tower. Its an amazing place to stay and so cosy. Fantastic base to explore North Wales. Lots of great walks nearby and the beach is just a few minutes walk away.

    The tower is very nice and an interesting place to stay, it has just about everything you need. It was very cold when we arrived and some information on how to control the central heating would be nice. It was definitely set too low for this time of year. Although it adds to the atmosphere I felt that it needed better lighting particularly in the lounge - at times I used my phone light to look in the cupboards for example. The bedroom receives natural daylight via windows in the roof which are partially obscured by the four poster bed - this could be claustrophobic for some and it isn't obvious from the booking information. Despite these comments we loved the place.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We are very glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with us, and that you loved the Tower. We always make sure that the Tower is nice and toasty warm before our guests arrive in winter. However if you leave the front door open while unloading your car, all the heat will leave the building as downstairs is open plan, it will then take a while to reheat the air from scratch. We suggest that the door is closed in winter between trips to the car for your own comfort. The central heating is easily adjustable to suit your own choice of temperature. The instructions for the central heating are on the information sheet on the table, directly in front of you along with the welcome pack when you walk in. We are always happy to answer any queries our guests have, we are only thirty feet away, if anyone wants to ask a question please knock on our door.

    I booked Hen Wrych Tower as a surprise for my wife's 65 birthday. She was absolutely delighted with the place; as was I. No expense has been spared in renovating this old tower to a beautiful place to stay. The kitchen come living room is well equipped, comfortable and a lovely place to spend a chilly evening watching a movie in front of the wood burner. The beautiful timber stair case leads to more beautiful wood on the charming and interesting land. From the landing access a large and stunning bathroom. On the second floor is another large room; the bedroom with a gorgeous 4 poster bed. We had a brilliant time staying here for 3 nights. The hosts; Pea and David were helpful charming and chatty. If you want a taste of period beauty you should book this place. One tip you may find useful - take your slippers as the lovely stone floor is cold on your feet.

    A lovely place to stay well equipped and full of lovely bits and pieces. An ideal location for us to explore all of the North Wales castles, National Trust properties and coastal paths. Pea and Dave the owners made us welcome and were very helpful. Would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for something special.
