Ruthin Castle Hotel and Spa offers a retreat steeped in history and nestled in acres of parkland. Next to an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in North Wales, the castle dates back to the legend of King Arthur. It features exquisite dining, a cooked Welsh breakfast, and a distinctive spa.

All rooms are individually styled using contemporary décor and all include a modern private bathroom. Every room has at least 1 flat-screen TV and some feature a large standalone bath and a four-poster bed.

Located beside the rustic woodland grounds of the castle's moat, the spa offers a selection of treatments. Guests can also enjoy a calming relaxation area and thermal suite, with a sauna and steam room.

The English town of Chester is less than a 40-minute drive away and so is the start of the M53 Motorway. Gwydyr Forest Park is 20 miles west of the hotel and 20 miles south of that lies the Snowdonia National Park.

Couples in particular like the location – they rated it 9.1 for a two-person trip.

Property info

A wooden fort appears to have existed on the site until 1277 when King Edward I of England reconstructed it in local stone and granted it to Dafydd, brother of Prince Llewelyn ap Graffudd. All that now remains are three towers and the ruined double-towered gatehouse. In 1282 the castle came under the control of The Marcher Lord, Reginald de Grey, reputedly the former Sheriff of Nottingham of the Robin Hood story, and his family owned the castle for the next 226 years. The third Baron de Grey's dispute with Owain Glyndwr triggered the Welsh rebellion against King Henry IV in 1400, when Glyndwr burned Ruthin to the ground, leaving only the castle and a few other buildings standing. During the English Civil War in 1646 the castle survived an eleven-week siege, after which it was demolished by order of Parliament. The castle was rebuilt in the 19th century as a country house and from 1826 until 1921 the castle was the home of the Cornwallis-West family, members of Victorian and Edwardian high society. Please note the hotel holds regular functions on weekends - please check with the hotel in advance if you are concerned this may affect your stay.
