IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF THE FAMOUS…

2017-04-06-llangoed3

Isn’t it wonderful when you come across a hotel with a truly fascinating story behind it? You can almost feel the life of those years gone by pulsing in its very walls. Llangoed Hall, in South Wales, is one of those hotels. Recent guest ANDREA McVEIGH tells us more…

Just nine miles away from Hay-on-Wye and its annual Hay Festival, numerous famous festival guests have stayed in this magnificent stately pile, including Jane Fonda, Sting and Bill Clinton.

The building itself, set in magnificent private grounds, is positively steeped in a rich history dating back to 560 AD, when the original Llangoed Castle was first recorded on the site. Subsequently used as a monastery, it was also home to the White Palace, Wales’s first parliament building. Rebuilt in 1632 by Sir Henry Williams in the classic Jacobean Manor House style, the family lost it as part of a gambling debt and it then became part of the estate of Lord Glanusk.

At the turn of the 20th century, the house was acquired by the wife of a prominent London hatter who commissioned the famous Welsh architect Clough Williams Ellis to extensively restore and redesign the house, more than a decade before he began work on Portmeirion, his renowned Italianate village in North Wales.
