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.

    Response on behalf of the owner; . We are passionate about making our guests stay as perfect as possible, and it makes us very happy when we hear that you have enjoyed your stay :). We are glad that you appreciated the accommodation, when we converted the Tower we tried to make it the sort of place that we would want to stay ourselves for a romantic break . The location is also ideal for visiting all the major tourist areas in North Wales, Snowdonia, Llandudno, Conwy, etc are all within easy reach. We look forward to having you stay again, all the very best.

    We had a really nice weekend break at Hen Wrych Hall Tower. Such a really great place to relax and get away from it all. The features in the tower such as the log fire, the spacious bathroom and the stairs leading up to the grand four poster bed in the bedroom makes it a magical place to stay. It is also a great base to get around from with lots of local coastal towns within easy reach.

    We saw the tower and thought it would be nice for our honeymoon so booked for 11 nights but only stayed for 4 nights because it was that bad, extremely dusty, bad smell of damp cats in bathroom,loads of bugs, strange noises in bedroom like another person commented on, very noisy from bedroom as its towards the front of the tower where the 60mph road is, couldn't sleep at all, very dark and drab lighting, basic appliances , no washing machine, very poor hamper which looks like a child put the selection together, slippery stairs,plastic dusty plants in bathroom, opposite the owners home so no real privacy they go in and out a lot so noisy especially with their cars that are parked right outside the door,no smart TV just basic, I could go on forever, all in all was terrible do not waste your money here, we usually only book with rural retreats which if you don't know are luxury cottages so maybe we're just used to a certain standard but it doesn't cost anything to keep a clean home, we had to then get a train home prematurely after only 4 nights to then book a rural retreats holiday which as always is amazing , the tower looks nice from outside but in is another story. AVOID!!!

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Oh dear, we are so sad that you didn't appreciate our beautiful, historic listed tower. You seemed to have made a mistake with the booking, and we can only assume someone else booked this holiday for you who did not know your tastes, as everyone would normally research their honeymoon thoroughly, and you turned up at our neighbours more modern property inquiring where you were staying. The facilities and property information are as stated online and in the brochure, including a washing machine! We clean the property thoroughly after each guest yet no maid service is available during the booked stay as the property is self-catering. No animals are allowed in the property. The Tower is a very unique and individual property. The bespoke staircase is beautiful with hand carved newels, and is solid mahogany, so perhaps you have a liking for slipper socks and carpet? Other individual features are the hand carved four poster bed, original crapper toilet and deep cast iron slipper bath plus more. Our welcome hamper includes small bottles of wine, both white and red, water, tea, coffee and biscuits, flowers on the table, and milk in the fridge. The Tower normally achieves a 10/10 as given by most of last year’s visitors. We are saddened that you did not inform us or Cottages.com that you had chosen the wrong property for your tastes, or allowed the company an opportunity to relocate you as we welcome Honeymooners on a regular basis. We wish you all the very best and hope prospective guests will read the other lovely comments from our happy customers who appreciate the uniqueness of our Tower.

    Lovely short break in a quite unique property. Furnishings are in keeping with the property and are very warming when you come in from a day at the coast.

    Beautiful place, it's like a fairy tale to stay in your own little castle. Beautifully presented, little extras like the welcome basket are a real treat. Lots of places to visit, all within a short drive. Fabulous place to stay!
