North Wales’ newest luxury wedding venue and accommodation, Caer Rhun Hall, is now open. The Grade II listed building has undergone an extensive, multi-million pound refurbishment, creating a lavish event space plus 32 bedrooms in exclusive surroundings. The hotel, a three-storey, late-Victorian mansion with a private house atmosphere, will add further rooms in the grounds, growing to 76 by the end of 2019.
Nestled in the heart of the Conwy Valley, the hotel is surrounded by magnificent countryside, with uninterrupted views of the mountains of North Wales and bordering Snowdonia National Park – yet just 15 minutes from Llandudno Junction railway station for travelling guests.
Built close to a protected Roman site, Caer Rhun (pronounced “Care Reen”) is set in 20 acres of rolling parkland and gardens. Every public room has unique features with craftsmanship of an earlier era, and the venue boasts two licensed ceremony spaces: The Great Hall, with feature fireplace and Tudor panelling; and The Garden Room, a light, airy space overlooking Caer Rhun’s gardens.
Caerhun Church is a short walk away, for couples desiring a church ceremony, and marquees can also be erected in the hall’s glorious grounds.
The venue, which caters to a variety of events in addition to weddings, will add a restaurant and spa in the next 18 months as it develops into a boutique, destination hotel and spa.
Overnight guests will be offered a country table, buffet-style Caer Rhun breakfast, featuring local Welsh cured meats, cheeses, breads and other produce from its local farming community.
For couples looking to extend their ‘minimoon’ stay, Caer Rhun Hall is ideally located for walking and cycling adventures. Guests looking for more high-octane pursuits can take a picturesque 30-minute drive to the mountain foothills where they can be harnessed into Zip World’s mile-long zipwire. And for those preferring water sports, guests can catch a wave at Surf Snowdonia’s nearby inland lagoon.
In addition, the beautiful North Wales Coastline with beaches and water activities are all within a 15-minute drive.
