Bodelwyddan Castle 457

Rhyl, Wales

Brief Description

Bodelwyddan Castle has a well-preserved landscape park that originated in the 18th century. There are massive boundary walls and lodges, added in the 19th century. Part of the walled garden contains an early-20th-century garden in the Arts and Crafts style by Thomas Mawson. A separate part of the site operates as a hotel and the castle itself is a regional outlet for the National Portrait Gallery.

History

The estate has existed since before 1460, but the current layout dates from a mid-19th-century refurbishment.
