Enveloped in woodlands and secluded gardens, Northop Hall Country House Hotel is North Wales’ well-kept secret. Built in 1872, the mansion still retains much of its original Victorian charm and boasts features like stain glass windows, pine staircase and grand fireplaces. Thanks to that, a stay in this hotel is like a journey back in time, smoothened by the rural tranquillity, idyllic views and wildlife in abundance.
Some of the local best walking trails are right on the hotel’s doorstep, while an 11-mile journey will take travellers to the city of Chester.
Victorian chic echoes in bespoke interiors and individual design of each room and are made complete with the views of hotels’ grounds. Flat-screen TVs with Freeview, hospitality trays and bathrooms with fluffy towels and complimentary toiletries add a home-like feel.
Dining at Northop Hall is enough reason to visit the hotel. Famous for hearty Sunday roasts, sumptuous afternoon teas and seasonal treats, the restaurant makes use of locally-sourced fare and herbs grown in the on-site garden.
