16th century hotel in the Berwyn Mountains for sale for £695k

The West Arms

The West Arms, a boutique 16th century inn in the village of Llanarmon DC near Llangollen, has gone on the market for £695k.

Set in the Berwyn Mountains, The West Arms has been owned by the current vendors, Geoff and Gill Leigh-Ford, since 1999.

Originally a farm, the site later became a drovers’ inn known as The Eagles where cattle drivers would rest their livestock on their way down from the Welsh hills.

It was afterwards renamed The West Arms when it was sold to local landowner, Mr Cornwallis West.

The hotel has 16 bedrooms ranging from doubles and singles to large suites with split-level accommodation and exposed beams.

The inn also hosts a lounge bar and original public bar known as ‘The Wayfarers’.

Having a civil licence means that weddings and functions can also be catered for in a suite which overlooks the Berwyns.

Keith Stringer, associate director in Christie & Co’s Manchester office comments: “Alongside the property’s golden history, The West Arms has gained recognition in recent years in travel guides, newspapers and hotel awards lists.

“The restaurant is consistently included in the prestigious Good Food Guide with head chef, Grant Williams, having appeared in numerous television programmes including ITV’s Britain’s Best Dish where he reached the finals in December 2011.

“The West Arms is located near to many attractions including Erddig, ‘the jewel in the crown of Welsh country houses’, Chirk Castle, the last Welsh castle from the reign of Edward I which is still lived in today, and Pistyll Rhaeder, a waterfall in the Berwyn Mountains famous for the Timotei Shampoo advert.”
