The hotel has been a focal point for climbers and walkers for many years and is well known for its sporting and climbing history.

The property was previously owned by Wendy Crisp & Melfyn Thomas, who purchased the Cobdens Hotel through Christie & Co in 2016.

They sought a sale in order to retire and Melfyn comments: “The property is in the perfect location for exploring Snowdonia, on foot or by car, and the possibilities for its development are unrivalled within the area.

“I wish Jill and her family all the best with their dream and hope that they make a great success of restoring this much loved feature of Capel Curig. Many thanks to Christie & Co for all the help and support that they gave in facilitating the sale. Pob Lwc!”

New owner, Jill Stubbington is a first time hospitality buyer, who was attracted to the hotel by its location, personality and development potential.

She plans to refurbish and modernise the property, restoring it to its former glory in order to capitalise upon the high levels of tourism in the area.

She said: “I aim to bring Gwesty Cobdens sympathetically into the 21st Century to enable guests to enjoy its location and facilities for many years to come. I would like to thank the vendors and Christie & Co for the opportunity to be a part of Cobdens’ history.”
