about Ruthin Castle
Built in the 13th century by Dafydd, the brother of Prince Llyweln II, Ruthin Castle is a historical, red-stone building overlooking the beautiful valley below. This popular venue for long and short stays has a century’s old reputation for providing great hospitality and comfort. Each of the bedrooms has been decorated individually so they each have an individual flair, and most of them enjoy views over the estate and mountains. With charm and history throughout this beautiful building it all makes for one picturesque escape. Legend has it that the wife of an army commander of Edward I discovered her husband’s romantic affair with a local girl and in a passionate rage murdered her with an axe. For her bloody deed she was executed, prohibited from being buried in consecrated ground and therefore buried by the castle walls. Her stone grave still exists and it is said that she forever roams the battlements as the ghostly ‘grey lady’.
