Ruthin Castle

Ruthin Castle (the 'red fort') originated before 1277 when it was rebuilt under King Edward I before his great castles at Conwy & Caernarfon, and at several times was part of the Crown Estate until sold by Charles I in 1632.

Largely rebuilt in 1827 after being partially demolished by Cromwell's Army in 1646 it sits by the River Clwyd amongst acres of landscaped gardens, parkland & woods.

Ancient stone battlements, underground dungeon, whipping pit and drowning pit still exist and the property includes a mediaeval banquet hall, entrance hall, inner hall, ballroom, library bar, lounge, conference suite, leisure suite, function rooms and 62 hotel bedrooms.
