A home of history and family

Bodrhyddan Hall hosts a wide collection of both world and local history. The rich architectural history dates back to the 1690s when much of the house was rebuilt. Later, in 1874, renowned architect William Eden Nesfield undertook a remodel, drawing inspiration from his work at Kew Gardens and Kinmel Hall. Nesfield’s father, William Andrew, was commissioned to lay out the gardens, which have been carefully maintained ever since.

Guided tours of the stately home offer visitors a unique glimpse into local history. Explore the opulent Dean’s Dining Room, elegant White Drawing Room and other spaces that offer insights into the family’s heritage. The extensive collection of historical artwork, antique furniture, and impressive arms and armour is sure to captivate visitors. Among the many treasures at Bodrhyddan is a rare 3,000-year-old Egyptian mummy and sarcophagus, which is a fascinating window into ancient cultural history.

Something for everyone in Bodrhyddan's gardens

The gardens cover around 12 acres and include a formal parterre, cascading lawns and a Japanese walk of life. The rugged wilds of the woodland walk’s were recently made accessible to visitors. The garden is home to a number of native trees and others from further afield, including giant sequoia, cedar of Lebanon and an Indian bean tree. The quiet calm comes to life with the dozens of species of animals and birds, making Bodrhyddan a wonderful setting for nature lovers.

Enjoy refreshments in the tea room or garden


All this culture can be thirsty work. Our Tea Room offers a selection of hot and cold drinks and ream cakes, providing you with the perfect excuse to indulge. We also have a number of postcards, guide books and other souvenirs available for purchase as well as audio guides of the gardens, narrated by Lord Langford and Head Gardener, Jane.

Opening and Admission

We look forward to welcoming visitors back in the summer of 2024. We have had a busy few months that have seen renovations to the roof; exactly 150 years after the architectural changes designed by William Eden Nesfield in 1874. During the winter we have also learned even more secrets of Bodrhyddan’s past that our guides are keen to pass on to our visitors.

From June to September, when the gardens are in full bloom, we invite visitors to enjoy our grounds and peaceful woodland walk on Tuesdays and Thursdays (between 13:00-17:00). Entry to the gardens costs just £5 pp. We also host some Locals’ Days in early summer.

Our passionate guides can also lead you on a 90-minute tour of the Hall, where you can explore the fascinating collection of historical artwork, antique furniture, and arms and armour. Tours leave at 1.45, 2.30 and 3.15pm and entry is just £10 per adult (£5 for children under 16). House tours include access to the gardens as well as the tea rooms.

Bodrhyddan can happily open outside of these times for groups of 25 or more, making the Hall the perfect stop for coach parties travelling to Llandudno and Conwy.
