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.

    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.

    This was an amazing place to stay, very different, pulling up to a castle tower that is yours to stay in for the weekend was an amazing surprise present! As described on the booking site many of the original features have been maintained but the right amount of modern additions make it a comfortable and cozy place to stay! Especially in front of the log burning fire! The owner was also very friendly and helpful with local recommendations. Very pleased with our stay! 😊

    We loved this charmingly restored old tower - & would love to return again some time in the future. A great deal of thought has been given in furnishing it in a period style. Everything one could possibly want was there, from kitchen equipment, washing machine, microwave etc, to washing up liquid, liquid soap, tea towels, oven gloves etc., all supplied. The "welcome basket" was good, with biscuits, wine, tea, coffee, jams etc. A bottle of milk & water in the fridge. A lovely touch was the vase of fresh flowers on the table. We did not find the owners to be anything other than helpful & friendly, & hardly noticed when their vehicles left the courtyard. But, we did wonder at a poor review, which we totally disagreed with, clearly the people had had no experience of old buildings, & lived in a ultra modern property themselves. In fact, were they in the same lovely tower, that we had just stayed in!!!? Yes, as others had written in the guest book, we just cannot wait to return, my husband thinks he may arrive in a suit of armour, but wonders where to tether the horse.
