Swathed in sublime scenery made up of parkland in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Ruthin Castle in North Wales has a wonderful history flowing throughout its ancient walls. The distinctive stone building dates back nearly 700 years to the Legend of King Arthur, and it was once the grand residence for illustrious British monarchs, including Elizabeth I, Edward I and Henry VII.
From the peacocks that roam the grounds to its turrets and original moat, everything about this castle feels authentic. Not only does it look majestic from the outside, you can really imagine medieval feasts taking place in the banqueting hall. As you enter the castle you are greeted by professional staff, and elegant and decadent interiors.
Ruthin Castle is home to the wonderfully serene Moat Spa, which nestles within the woodlands beneath a leafy canopy. Its tranquil setting provides a harmonious retreat for guests to completely indulge themselves with the ESPA treatments, from massages and facials, to pedicures and manicures. The outdoor sauna and hot tubs are a luxury you must take advantage of during your stay at the castle.
When you arrive at Ruthin Castle, you are swept into a medieval world, where you can enjoy themed nights, banquets or perhaps a gentle stroll around the gardens and follow in the footsteps of the kings and queens.
The castle is approximately 20 miles from Chester so it is an ideal base for exploring the city. Alternatively, if you prefer the countryside, Snowdonia and the rugged Welsh coast are within easy reach and make exciting days out. Also close by is Llangollen, where you can visit the canal trail, scenic railway and bridge.
