These days, for the savvy independent traveller, choice is everything, and Harry Barker’s lovingly restored reincarnation of Llanrhaeadr Springs has choice a plenty. From glamourous glamping to gourmet dining, spoiling spa treatments to special occasion suites. The historic outbuildings of the imposing Llanrhaeadr Hall have been painstakingly transformed into a contemporary bistro, exclusive spa and luxurious accommodation. The quality of the buildings, the rolling parklands and the statement architecture hint at the lavish grandeur of its past, indeed the Hall once belonged to the Salisbury family who, at the time, owned a large part of the county.

If you are looking for a little more space the luxurious duplex Dovecot comes complete with its original features, a lavish king size bed and the addition of a high-end country kitchen. Think exposed beams, warm stonework, a modern wood burner and even a private sun-trap terrace.
Set privately in the lush grounds, the three hand crafted Shepherd Huts are the ultimate glamping experience and you are immersed in nature with all mod cons. Inspired by an original 19th century design, the bespoke Huts blend traditional romance and contemporary style, there’s a dreamy double bed, a cosy en suite and a snug log burner.

Guests can choose to eat an indulgent Brunch in the characterful Springs dining room, just a few yards from the huts and the Dovecot. The Springs Bistro and Restaurant, is a sympathetically converted, light and airy high ceiled space in the old 15th century stable block, is in the safe hands of MasterChef winner, Claire Lara. There’s sophisticated cocktails, an accessible wine list, and regular themed and special event nights. We loved the modern twist ‘signature’ afternoon tea, perfect after working up an appetite taking on the Clwydian range.

It's a real rare retreat, and the award winning marine spa and Thalgo treatments make this a uniquely memorable getaway. The Polynesia Spa Ritual is not to be missed, and the crystal clear hydro pool bubbles your cares away.
