Bodysgallen is surrounded by over 200 acres of its own parkland and beautiful gardens both manicured and wild. The gardens have been recognised for their award winning restoration. Featured within the estate's grounds are a rare 17th century parterre of box hedges filled with sweet-scented herbs, naturally occurring limestone outcrops, a rockery with a cascade, a walled garden, lily-pad ponds, and several follies. The gardens also include a formal rose garden and a number of well-established and interesting trees and shrubs including medlar and mulberry, which add further dimension to the gardens.
Various springs traverse the parklands, and there are several woodland walks such as the Terrace Walk, the Ladies Walk, the Eastern Covert Walk or the Pydew Village Walk that lead to a Gothic Tower and the obelisk located on top of Pydew mountain.
History of the hotel
Despite the gradual addition of one wing, then another, during a building history of 600 years, the whole house is built in the same sturdy and conservative style. The name may mean either 'house among thistles' or 'the abode of Cadwallon', a 6th century chieftain. The oldest part of the house is a five storey tower, probably dating from the late 13th century, and possibly built as a watch tower for Conwy Castle.
Dogs are welcomed in the Cottage Suites only, by prior arrangement free of charge (not allowed in bedrooms), two small dogs or one larger dog, and may be walked in the park and woods, but not in the garden. Damage to rooms or injury to livestock will be charged for. We do not allow dogs in the Main Hall (unless guide dogs).
