Tower is a rare fortified Welsh border house, and one of the few truly historic structures to offer accommodation in Wales.
A B&B rather than a full-service hotel, with only three guest rooms you’ll definitely feel part of a special environment.
Bearing family names, the “Sir George Wynne,” the “Wettenhall,” and the “Lady Mainwaring” rooms feature selected antique furnishings and family portraits on the walls. Windows look out onto woodland or the lake.
Care is taken to make everything as homey as possible: flowers, fresh fruit, and a library are all at hand.
In the morning as you make your plans for the day, enjoy a large Welsh breakfast cooked from local products in the drawing room.
Listed as a Grade I building of outstanding historical interest
