Gwydir Castle, Llanrwst

Book Tickets Online


Gwydir Castle is an ancient Welsh house situated in the beautiful Conwy Valley, in the foothills of Snowdonia.

Regarded as one of the finest Tudor houses in Wales, the castle was formerly the ancestral home of the powerful Wynn family.

By 1994, the house and garden and fallen into dereliction. Its restoration has taken over twenty years to complete and is still a work-in-progress by its current owners. Deeply evocative and atmospheric, it is a unique experience in country house visiting.

Gwydir was given the highest rating (4 stars) by Simon Jenkins in his book ‘Wales, Churches, Houses, Castles’.
