Gloddaeth HallIn 1971 the estate and the school were heavily featured in the British thriller film “Unman, Wittering and Zigo” directed by John Mackenzie with many location shots taken around the buildings. Below is quote from ‘Houses of the Welsh countryside’ which describes Gloddaeth Hall: Buried within substantial Victorian additions at St David’s College, Llandudno, is a hall assumed to date from the early sixteenth century (possibly earlier) with a cross-wing addition dating from around 1700.
…the early decorative detail is lavish and in excellent condition. Decoration is the chief delight here: the moulded roof timbers are supported by hammer-beams; the Tudor fi replace sports moulded jambs, a heraldic shield and inscriptions; the dais partition has a superb painted canopy; painting and other decorative work are found in the later wing. Although the later additions by E. W. Nesfi eld and John Douglas continue the Tudor decorative themes, it is easy to tell the phases apart, and the main hall has survived largely unscathed from the attention of Victorian ‘improvers’.
This location conveniently has on sight catering facilities and kitchen as well as ample parking and campus wide Wi-Fi.
