Castle Cottage Restaurant with Rooms Harlech

Castle Cottage Restaurant with Rooms HarlechA restaurant with rooms in a building dating from 1585.

A very comfortable, family run Restaurant with Rooms, dating from the 16th century it is two of the oldest houses in Harlech, close to the ancient castle. In the main building we have three twin/super king en-suite which offer the same high standard and facilities of our annex rooms. In the Llew Coch annex (a former coaching Inn in the C17) we have four luxury twin/super king en-suite bedrooms. We are rated 4 Star Restaurant with Rooms by the Wales Tourist board and 5 Diamonds with the RAC and AA. We also hold a Silver Award from the True Taste of Wales.

New Annex

We have purchased an adjoining building, a Grade 2 listed 16th Century former inn known as The Red Lion. The exterior of the building has been re-pointed using lime mortar, and has been re-roofed using reclaimed Welsh slates in a random style with 'lace valleys' (no lead is Castle Cottage Restaurant with Rooms Harlechused, only overlapping slates) and is unique in the town of Harlech. In the rear courtyard we have uncovered the original cobblestones, and the front courtyard will be reset with reclaimed cobblestones of Welsh granite.

In the interior the entrance hall will be laid with Welsh slate flagstones. In the bedrooms all the exposed beams have been rubbed down and will be left in their natural state, the plastering of the walls will follow the original contours of the building - wobbly in places, but it is 400 years old!. Decor-wise we will be using natural cream colourings on the walls & ceilings, colour for each room will come in the fabrics used on the custom-made headboards, bespoke curtains and throws for the beds. As a contrast to the age and character of the building we are fitting it out with contemporary solid oak furniture, modern brushed steel light fittings, colour TV's with Castle Cottage Restaurant with Rooms Harlechvideo & DVD, leather seating and state of the art en-suite bathrooms - 'tapless' baths, under-floor heating etc.

All of the rooms will have two 3 foot single beds which can be linked to become a super king size bed. Two of the bedrooms will be suitable as family rooms as they will have leather 2 seater sofa beds and the en-suite facilities will have a bath and separate shower. One of the ground floor rooms will be suitable for guests who are not fully mobile as it is all on the level and has a 'walk in' shower (no screen or ledge to step on to, and a window seat in the wet area) as well as a bath in the bathroom.

Due to the increase in allergies we do not have any feather pillows or allow any pets in the building. All bedrooms are strictly no smoking, you may smoke in the bar/lounge. If you would like dinner for your first night, please reserve a table before arrival.

We have central heating throughout and oak-beamed bar, with its open log fire provides a comfortable and congenial place to relax. There is also a cosy residents lounge with a view of Mount Snowdon.
