We have just returned from a long weekend staying with Andy and Julian in their wonderful Country House close to Caernarfon. What can one say that hasn`t already been said? This was our first visit and certainly won`t be our last. From the moment that we arrived we were made to feel at home, with afternoon tea served in the Drawing Room in front of a roaring log fire.
Our room, Lady Armstrong, on the first floor, with distant views over the surrounding countryside, was spacious with every amenity to make your stay more comfortable.
We enjoyed one evening meal in the dining room and a Christmas Dinner in the Gun Room with friends, Andy and Julian`s cooking and attention to detail is exemplary.
Breakfasts, served later at weekends, offer a good choice, all sourced locally.
If you are looking for a Country House for that special occasion or just a few days rest, you will not find a better location or a couple who go that extra mile to make your stay a memorable one.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Beautiful things fill Lord Snowdon’s historic family home, Marco's cooking hits the spot and the ten, en-suite bedrooms offer wifi and luxurious Molton Brown amenities.This is the family home of Lord Snowdon. It dates to the 1600s and stands in 15 acres with an avenue of oak that sweeps you up to the house. Princess Margaret stayed often and much of what fills the house belongs to the family: stunning chandeliers, oils by the score, gilt-framed mirrors – an Aladdin's cave of beautiful things. There's a baby grand piano in the drawing room, where you find smart wood floors, an honesty bar and a fire that roars, but potter about the house and find masses of memorabilia framed on the walls (make sure you visit the private dining room). Bedrooms are quite something, the past mixing gracefully with modern design. Nothing is left to chance, a constant programme of refurbishment sees to that. You get four-posters, classic colours, sumptuous fabrics, a sofa if there's room. Bathrooms are excellent, some with showers, others with free-standing baths. ... more less
