Gwydir Castle is situated in the beautiful Conwy Valley and is set within a Grade 1 listed, 10-acre garden. Built by the illustrious Wynn family c1500, Gwydir is a fine example of a Tudor courtyard house, incorporating re-used medieval material from the dissolved Abbey of Maenan. Further additions date from c1600 and c1826. The important 1640s panelled Dining Room has now been reinstated, following its repatriation from the New York Metropolitan Museum.

The castle is primarily a family home, though guests are warmly welcomed to share in Gwydir's tranquil and timeless atmosphere and languish by a log fire in one of the candle-lit halls. Situated in the foot-hills of Snowdonia, three miles from Betws-y-Coed and twelve miles from the medieval walled town of Conwy, Gwydir is perfectly situated for the enjoyment of all the natural and historic wonders of North Wales. The castle is within pleasant walking distance of the market town of Llanrwst, with convenient rail and bus connections. There are also several good restaurants and inns in the vicinity for dinner. Two rooms are available, the 'King's Room,' with its en-suite bathroom, and the 'Duke of Beaufort's Chamber,' with its own private bathroom adjacent. Both rooms have four-poster beds and garden views. The bedrooms are furnished with antiques and, whilst retaining their historic charm, have all the (discreet) concessions to comfort and modernity that the gentle traveller might require.
