Jean’s visit to Caer Rhun, North Wales

I still remember the first time I visited the Caer Rhun estate at the end of January. From the drive through the medieval town of Conwy – a world heritage UNESCO site – to the point when the car swerved in and out between the rolling hills of Conwy Valley… there was something almost magical about the views of the Snowdonia Mountains. Just when I thought it couldn’t get any better, mountains turned into greenery and we were suddenly at the gates leading in to Caer Rhun Estate.

I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to re-live this dream once again last month as I had invited some of my investors to view the development and take in the sights for themselves. They were just as excited about the magnificent hall and luscious green forestry. The 14th century manicured gardens. The loved the feeling it evoked of ‘getting away from it all.’ So much so that they reserved not just one but three of the hotel rooms inside.

Looking out onto the estate from the main hall… Almost like leaving the 21st century for the 16th century  via a TARDIS

I delved further into the past as I stepped into the spacious country home and walked around exploring. Despite how cliché this may sound, I felt both calm and inspired, as if all my worries were washed away. The house oozes with character and a distinct, timeless charm despite its age – a somewhat traditional elegance. Its original features have been superbly maintained and will provide a great foundation for upcoming refurbishments.
