Lake Vyrnwy Hotel & Spa is set on the slopes of the Berwyn Mountains with views stretching across a Victorian reservoir, complete with a fairy tale water tower that dominates the scene. The hotel is at the centrepiece of this vast Vyrnwy estate, which originates back to the late 19th century, when the city fathers of Liverpool dammed up the Vyrnwy valley to create a fresh water supply for the city of Liverpool. To ensure the purity of this fresh drinking water, the 24,000 acre catchment area was purchased and transformed into a sporting estate with a splendid lodge - the present day hotel. This privately owned classic country house hotel is elegant yet relaxed. The award-winning restaurant has seasonally changing menus which make the most of the local produce and game from the surrounding estate, and the more informal Tavern Restaurant serves a bistro-style menu. The bedrooms at the hotel are individually decorated; many are furnished with antiques and some have special features such as lake views & balconies. For true pleasure seekers, the spa boasts an unbroken view of the lake from its Thermal Suite, where you can choose from a sauna, steam room or simply relax in an eight person spa pool, or indulge yourself with an exotic treatment. Tear yourself away from the hotel, and you will find yourself in area of outstanding beauty and rich wildlife. Lake Vyrnwy also offers unrivalled opportunities for a host of outdoor pursuits.
