Historic houses in Clwyd, North Wales - Denbighshire and Flintshire

This page Bodelwyddan Castle - Plas Newydd, Llangollen


Bodelwyddan 

Bodelwyddan Castle

Bodelwyddan Castle is an opulent Victorian mansion, built to resemble a medieval castle. The resemblance is more than superficial - there are a bristling array of battlements and turrets that would look at home in a fairy tale. Bodelwyddan is built on the remains of an earlier medieval structure. The architect responsible was Joseph Hansom, better known to posterity as the inventor of the hansom cab. Within the richly furnished 19th century interiors are paintings from the National Portrait Gallery.

A 17th century red brick house on much older foundations, Bodrhyddan is the home of Lord Langford, whose family have inhabited Bodrhyddan for over 500 years. There has been a house here since the 14th century, but the present building is largely 17th century with Victoria additions. On display is period furniture, armour, and an unusual 3000 year old mummy!
