Spa & Leisure

Every now and again you come across a spa experience that is entirely different to any other, and that was certainly the goal at Ruthin Castle’s The Moat. Inspired by Finnish, Russian and Siberian experiences, the spa is an indoor/outdoor experience in the grounds of a medieval castle. Outdoor facilities include a sauna and hot tubs infused with seaweed and herbs; spring water showers and cocoon seats swinging from the trees. Indoors there are more mineral rich hot tubs, thermal rooms, a mud bath using Welsh mud, five treatment rooms, a VIP couple’s room with a copper bath and private steam room and a Moet champagne nail bar complete with king-size loungers.

The treatments are equally unique as well – all bespoke and using locally sourced products, the collection includes oxygenating ginger wraps, argan oil and tea tree body polish scrubs, and gold luxury facials

Hotel & Accommodation

The castle itself was built for Edward I in 1277, with later owners including Henry VIII and Elizabeth I. Although large parts were destroyed in the 17th century, today the 60 bedroom venue still boasts a historic charm as it nestles between the North Welsh coast and Snowdonia. Meanwhile, the four star rooms are all uniquely decorated and densely textured, with detailed wallpaper and fabrics in six categories from Castle Rooms to the Prince of Wales suite.

Bertie’s is the main restaurant – named for Edward VII’s nickname amongst family. Overseen by Chef Darren Shenton-Morris, they serve an a la carte menu using local ingredients and has been awarded two AA Rosettes as proof of its culinary success. For lighter meals and afternoon tea next to a carved stone fireplace there is also the Library Bar, and a series of lounges and terraces as well. To really take advantage of the historic location however, Ruthin Castle hosts Medieval banquets, adding an alternative twist to group breaks.
