About the property

8 Bedrooms, Sleeps 16+

Please note that Llandrinio Hall is available all year round. During the school summer holidays and for Christmas and New Year we rent full weeks only, whereas at all other times a minimum two-night stay applies (three nights for half-term weekends). We also offer half-days, so, rather than checking out at the usual 10am, you can extend to late afternoon at a half-day rate.

Llandrinio Hall was built in 1682 during the reign of Charles II. It has a well-documented history as an important Montgomeryshire house that was the centre of a large estate throughout the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. During that time its ownership passed through just three families, but they boasted amongst their numbers the nephew of the Bishop of St Asaph, four high sheriffs of Montgomery and various relatives of the great parliamentarian Sir Robert Peel.

The hall is approached via an impressive avenue of lime trees and stands against the backdrop of the Breidden Hills. Many of its original features have been retained, including two oak Carolean (ie dating from the reign of Charles ll) staircases and a wealth of oak timbers and polished oak floors. Having been recently (2007) fully renovated, nowadays the spacious rooms strike a balance between their fine original features and more modern comforts.

With regard to your stay, we try to think of everything: feather and down duvets and pillows, because they’re the softest and the nicest (yet man-made available for allergy-sufferers); feather and down mattress toppers, to make comfy beds just … even more comfy; there's an Emperor-sized (7'x7') four-poster bed to enjoy; we do not use energy-saving lightbulbs or even LED, just warm tungsten and halogen, because it’s so much warmer and more natural; there is entertainment in the form of books and DVDs/Blu-rays scattered around, that have been thought about (England/Wales/Countryside/Manor House-focussed); ornaments and pictures create an atmosphere, so all these have been considered, to help settle, amuse, enlighten and enhance your stay; no supermarket ‘basic’ or ‘essential’ items are supplied, but just what works best (like Andrex); towels are 100% cotton and plump; bedding is 100% cotton and mostly from John Lewis (you’d be stretched to find a man-made fibre in the apartment); floors are original; there are always rugs; there is always plentiful hot water; heating is always efficient; kitchen equipment is extensive; cutlery and crockery is elegant; and there is nothing that might aesthetically offend.


We had the most fantastic Christmas in Llandrinio Hall with all our family, it couldn't have been better. The Hall suited our needs perfectly and all agreed we had just the best time. You asked in your e-mail for any suggestions or comments, but honestly we couldn't fault it. The linen and the towels were all good, the kitchen very well equipped. The big bonus was the great walk in shower, which is so efficient and made shower time, along with the other 2 bathrooms a very speedy process for 15 people. We really did have the best time in your lovely home, it was just so welcoming with all the lovely Christmas touches you had put in place and the tree looked so pretty. With very best regards,Valerie Will and Family

We had a lovely time at Llandrinio Hall. The house was perfect. It easily accommodated our whole party with plenty of space for us to relax and enjoy our weekend break. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting out in the garden in the afternoon, watching the sunsets (even in October it was warm enough!) and sitting by the fire in the evening in the lounge. Our favourite room was by far the kitchen: this is the first time that we have stayed anywhere that has been able to fit our entire group around a table; perfect! The house was easy to find but also secluded enough we did not feel overlooked. We will definitely check out your other properties for our next trip. We would highly recommended a stay at Llandrinio hall for any large group. We felt as though we were staying in a National Trust stately home property; it was truly stunning! We were also entertained by the taxidermy; most of us had never seen so many in one place. Hopefully we will return for another reunion next year. Rebecca Welsh

We had an absolutely wonderful time. What a fabulous house for my 50th birthday party! It was truly such a special place to be - a fantastic fun-filled house to party in. There were 14 of us, all adults - music lovers, art lovers, film lovers, food lovers - and we could not have been in a better place! Very best wishes, Sue Richardson

I just wanted to say that we had a fantastic stay at Llandrinio Hall for my 40th. All the adults and the children were gushing in their praise. I had several conversations about what a great place it would be to come back to year after year as the children grow up and for our geographically dispersed group to meet up. Alec and Veronica were so hospitable and made us feel right at home with wonderful catering and local gossip. The house is magnificent, the views spectacular, and we loved it. Hope to return next year. Cheers, Tom Liptrot

Many thanks for letting us stay in your beautiful home! And particular thanks to your children for sharing their many lovely toys and books with our children. My favourite things were: the tree lined drive; the view to Rodney's pillar; the wide old floorboards; the attic rooms; the piano; the heating! My children were very reluctant to leave and we are all hoping to stay again. Sarah Rusbridge

We had a great time, the house was perfect for us. Particular bonuses were: garden, toys, books and DVDs for the children (things to keep them entertained is the key to a relaxing holiday!); the well equipped kitchen allowed for proper comfortable cooking, and the place had a very relaxed feel in general - which helped allow us to relax. Nice to be surrounded by lots of lovely books, including the cookbooks. My wife and I couldn't think of any suggestions for improvement! Sudip Nandy

We just loved our stay at Llandrinio Hall. It is just perfect for a family get-together and we were sad to leave. Relaxing in the garden each morning with a cup of coffee was been a joy. We have had our own mini-Olympics, with table tennis, trampolining and badminton. Alison Fletcher & Family

We had the most marvellous time at Llandrinio Hall. My friends and I often book large holiday homes and without a doubt this was the most lovely. We were blessed with very fine weather, which meant that we were able to take full advantage of your beautiful gardens and we were able to stay outside on a couple of evenings until at least 10pm. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and we spent most of our indoor time in the hall and kitchen, simply enjoying each others company and laughing to an enormous degree! One of my friends organised a 'treasure hunt' around the house and garden, which helped draw our attention to parts of the building and decoration which we may not have noticed on our, too brief, stay with you - which was huge fun. Sue and her husband met us on our arrival and made us extremely welcome and it was nice to meet Alec and Veronica just before we departed. Everyone would love to spend more time in your part of the world. Sarah Ley

What can I say, other than 'Wow?!' The Hall is stunning - you have created a real home-from-home for your guests and each and everyone of us were thrilled with everything! I particularly liked the vine-shaded conservatory that opens onto the lawned rear gardens, with rose borders and formal yew hedging. Other garden features we appreciated were: the family-sized trampoline; tree house; BBQ. With stunning uninterrupted views of the Breidden Hills, it really is the perfect place to relax, unwind and/or to entertain guests. Brian Priest

We had a wonderful weekend. Your house gave us the space and facilities for four couples and a selection of our children to have an enjoyable and relaxing time. The meal that Alec and Veronica provided on Saturday night was delicious. The golf at Welshpool and Oswestry was enjoyed. The children enjoyed all that the house and garden offered and were reluctant to go out. Overall, we all agreed that Llandrinio Hall had suited us far better than the alternative of a hotel and we are trying to think of an excuse to do it again. Ann Saunders & family

We really enjoyed our stay at Llandrinio Hall. It was an excellent venue for the family celebration of my husband's 60th birthday. The garden was a superb size for children and adults to play a variety of games. The adults enjoyed watching the highlights of the Olympics on the large screen during the first week. The kitchen was a great size to work in and have everyone sitting round the table for a meal. And the pianists amongst us played a few duets, so something for everyone. There was just the right amount of space for people to join in or do their own thing. In fact, apart from taking the dog for walks in and around the village, we were happy to spend our time at the Hall. We also had a few family table tennis tournaments, raising the competitive spirit. Paula Crosbie & Family

We had an amazing time, a fab time - the pictures did not do the house justice! Really fell in love with it. I celebrated my 40th birthday there and Alec and Veronica did the catering - it was a fantastic night, and they are just the loveliest people. Nothing was too much trouble. The house was so comfortable and not like most holiday lets! We did not want to leave and certainly hope to return one day. It far exceeded our expectations. Thanks so much. Fleur Challis

It was truly a wonderful experience staying at Llandrinio Hall, for all of us (10), over the bank holiday weekend. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was immaculately tidy and we were proud to be part of the historical mansion. Honestly, 4 nights was simply not be enough; we would have loved to stay longer than that. Jeff Diamond

A unique home with bags of personality!

  • 5 of 5

Finding a property to cater for the needs of a large family group, with ages from young to old was expected to be a challenge - until we found Llandrinio Hall. Celebrating an 80th birthday, a group of 16 of us enjoyed a fantastic 3 days in a property which can only be described as unique, oozing character and history, yet homely and relaxing. The space is perfect for a large gathering - neither too large nor too small. With a combination of music, snooker, cinema, gardens, table tennis, wet room and a well equipped / spacious kitchen are, we had all we needed to make a memorable and special occasion and something for everyone. In spite of its size and old grandeur, the hall feels well loved and lived in, making it easy to relax and enjoy its quirky personality. Great for self catering, with a beautiful outdoor space and views and a highly effective heating system rounded it off perfectly. Finally, our thanks to Sue (housekeeper) for great pre arrival help. Alison Macfarlane and family

Absolutely amazing from start to finish!

  • 5 of 5

I spent a long weekend with 8 close friends to celebrate my 40th and this place was such a special place to do that. From the location, to the tree lined drive, this Manor House is absolutely gorgeous. Each room has such character...from the sitting room to the massive kitchen, and the walk-in shower room. It would be amazing for children too who would spend hours discovering the outdoors and would have such fun sleeping in the quirky bedrooms. It was so well equipped with towels in each room and lots of ice in the freezer!

We made so many memories there and we all fell in love with the place. So thank you Jonathon for finding this gem and letting strangers enjoy a little piece of heaven in Wales. We will definitely return one day.

An amazing and special place for a weekend away

  • 5 of 5

We had a FANTASTIC time at Llandrinio Hall - it's an absolutely superb place!

The garden and surrounding landscape was beautiful; the kitchen well equipped and huge; the surround sound amazing; the rooms spotlessly clean; the cinema room awesome; the walk in wet room was just out of this world! I could go on...

Really, it was just faultless. Jonathan was very friendly and helpful during the booking process and the housekeeper, Sue, was absolutely lovely!

I would definitely return - and in fact, very much hope to do so!

Stunning period property

  • 5 of 5

We’ve just returned from a fabulous long weekend with family and friends at Llandrinio Hall. Elegant and grand with a welcoming atmosphere, the hall is a simply stunning child friendly property providing a huge range of facilities and activities for all ages. Monumental bedrooms, comfortable receptions, a dedicated shower room (which felt more like a trip to the beach), giant kitchen, cinema room, table tennis room and snooker room with a full sized table – it’s not your everyday living experience. And outside is pretty special too! An absolutely beautiful garden with stunning views everywhere you look. Loved it, loved it, loved it. Will most definitely return.

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

What a great house. With a snooker table, table tennis, two pianos and a trampoline and huge garden for the kids (not to mention all the toys), you simply don't need to leave. There's also a telly and plenty of DVDs for rainy days.

Bedrooms are huge, plus the wet-room shower is the best shower I've ever used.

Amazing accommodation that you dream about

  • 5 of 5

We had the best holiday at Llandrinio Hall. To stay in such a beautiful, grand Hall was a dream come true. The combination of a historical home with all of the modern benefits was a real winner with my family.

The spacious, well-kitted kitchen enabled our extended family to show off their culinary skills and eat together around the impressive table. The high tech cinema room was a family favourite, especially at the end of the day when we just wanted to put on a DVD and relax.

The children especially enjoyed the snooker room, table tennis, trampoline and sports equipment. It was great to sit out in the beautiful garden with a glass of wine, admiring the magnificent view and watching them play, whilst the more active adults joined in. There was much laughter!

The musical members of our family loved the opportunity to play the grand piano which lent itself well to a good sing-song later in the evening. The amazing Bose sound system meant that we could have music and radio in any room we wanted - much to everyone's delight.

The large, well-furnished bedrooms; the tastefully-decorated bathrooms, and the magnificent shower room made the living arrangements at the Hall very comfortable indeed.

The location of the Hall was ideal too. We enjoyed the closeness of Shrewsbury with its interesting shops, restaurants and cinemas, whilst also being able to enjoy the countryside with its local farm shops and many outdoor pursuits activities close-by.

We had a wonderful time - it was an excellent place for our family to enjoy time together. We will definitely be coming back.

Llandrinio Hall is the perfect base for exploring the varied delights of both Shropshire (to the east) and mid-Wales (to the west). It is located directly on the English/Welsh border.

Shropshire has been surprising visitors ever since the Romans first settled here. It has some 32 castles and stately homes, the best of which can be found at Ludlow, Stokesay and Attingham Park in Shrewsbury. There’s even a Roman city at Wroxeter. Shropshire also boasts many national horticulture collections and speciality gardens, like Wollerton Old Hall and Stapley Water Gardens.

Mid-Wales has just as much to offer visitors, too. Powis Castle near Welshpool is built from red grit stone and was bequeathed to the National Trust in 1952 by the 4th Earl of Powis. It features magnificent gardens with rambling Italianate terraces. Beyond Welshpool are the Elan Valley reservoirs, the Centre for Alternative Technology and the Snowdonia National Park.
