History

Bryn Howel was built in the late 19th century adjacent to The Llangollen Canal, during the reign of Queen Victoria, as the country home of James Coster Edwards and his family.

James Coster Edwards owned quarries, brick and tile works locally, which were important industries in the area at the time. Bryn Howel has been sympathetically developed into a hotel with all the facilities expected by visitors from around the world whilst the original features and the ambience of the country house have been retained. The wood-panelled bar still has the original log fire and the first 2 lines of The Welsh Anthem inscribed over the fireplace as well as it’s celebrated ornate ceiling.

When you visit Bryn Howel, from the moment you turn into the tree-lined drive, you will be able to imagine what it was like as a country residence over a century ago, and you will be able to enjoy the magnificent scenery which have changed little since James Coster Edwards and his family lived here. You can see the ruins of Dinas Bran Castle from the restaurant windows often set against spectacular sunsets.
