BARGAIN LUXURY TRAVEL - WALES
Set in a parkland of oak woods Ruthin Castle is a truly romantic hotel, steeped in history. The original castle dates back Edward I “Longshanks”, built in 1282 for the English control of Wales, with connections to the legends of both King Arthur and Robin Hood. The medieval castle was built on the site of an earlier dark ages fort connected to Arthurian lore and a previous owner was the actual historical Sheriff of Nottingham. Throughout its existence Ruthin Castle has been owned and visited by some of history’s most iconic figures including Henry VIII, and Queen Elizabeth I, King Edward VII, of “The King’s Speech” fame, as well as the actress Lilly Langtree and Lady Randolph Churchill, when she was married to one of the castle’s owners. As it stands now, the Ruthin Castle of the hotel, with its red brick ivy covered walls and entrance guarded by pink marble lions, was built in the mid-19th Century as a castellated Victorian revival estate manor for the Myddleton family.
