Why we love it...

Charming country house with thoughtful details

The Place

It could easily be overbearing but this elegant, mainly Regency gentleman’s house (though parts date back 400 years) is a place where you can be yourself. Attentive hosts Annie and Daniel have transformed the space over the last few years, skilfully combining indulgent luxury with a relaxed ambience that makes guests feel at home.

The Drawing Room and atmospheric Gunroom Restaurant (private dining for small groups) with its royal memorabilia are the highlights of the downstairs public spaces. Gaining entry to the Michelin Guide in 2022, The Gunroom Restaurant is a triumph, offering excellent service and a seasonal menu that changes every month.

Bedrooms are mostly spacious, some are decorated in traditional country house style, others modern ’boutique’ with bold wallpapers that make a statement. All combine antiques with contemporary facilities. Each has been given the sort of individual thought we look for, with every room having its own character, including the amusingly masculine Major Room, featuring an original WWI King’s Royal Rifles Jacket hidden away in the wardrobe.

They have views over the 15 acres of grounds to the Menai Strait or over unspoilt countryside. The property, down a 500m drive, once belonged to the Armstrong-Joneses, the family of Lord Snowdon, who married the late Queen’s sister, Princess Margaret – she stayed here – and Prince William has visited for a private lunch in the Gun room.
