Hen Wrych Hall Tower description


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.
