Juxtaposes a Victorian mansion set on gorgeous grounds with a newly refurbished, tastefully modern interior.

It is easy to imagine the late-Victorian family who occupied this mansion long before it became North Wales’ newest luxury property. Their personal mark remains ever-present in names etched into the wood panelling, original fireplaces in what are now uber-modern, spacious bathrooms, and in the playful swing hanging from a cedar tree planted centuries ago (a nod to the children who must have played here once).

Having recently undergone a multi-million dollar renovation, the property has not lost the personal and unique. Enchanting details are never far — croquet is set up on the lawns of the 20 acre property, a roaring wood fire hypnotizes from across the room at the honesty bar, breakfast is a lovely assortment of local produce and, even in mid-fall, the last remaining roses frame a beautiful portrait of this three-storey property.

One of the most delightful touches is the way my room, accented in teal, offsets the copper toned bathtub, elegantly placed before a lead paned window overlooking the grounds.

Eventually, the hotel will have 76 rooms, a restaurant and spa. For now, though, the hotel feels like our own private country house – certainly the good vibrations of its first owners are still here.

BEST FOR Those with a taste for luxury in beautiful country surroundings.
