OLD RECTORY COUNTRY HOUSE


Elegant country house with Conwy estuary vistas



THE WELSH MOTTO of this elegant Georgian country house painted in springtime daffodil yellow is Hardd Hafan Hedd, meaning beautiful haven of peace. It’s soon apparent why:  The Old Rectory harks back to an altogether less hurried and calmer world.

Hosts Wendy and Michael Vaughan more than deserve their accolade for Welsh Hospitality at its Best. Sympathetically restored in a charming but unfussy style, this relaxing house is a pleasure to stay in. Watercolours, antiques, porcelain and a drawing room piano underline the sense of comfort, while thoroughly inviting bedrooms have lavishly draped four-poster or half-tester beds, cushiony sofas, well appointed bathrooms and goodies such as fresh fruit.

Outside, terraced gardens tumble onto lawns stretching towards the water, with wide-open views of floodlit Conwy Castle and the River Conwy estuary. Snowdonia and the rugged Welsh coastline await discovery nearby.
