Bryngwenallt Hall was built in the 1860's, designed by the renowned Welsh architect Richard Owen for John Roberts (1835 - 1894), MP for Flintshire, who was succeeded by his son John Herbert Roberts (1863 - 1955), the first Baron of Clwyd.

The stone used in the building of this impressive property was quarried from the Allt Wen at the rear of the house. Bryngwenallt Hall is set well within its own grounds, secluded on all sides by a wealth of evergreen and deciduous trees, and with commanding views towards the sea from the tower.

Abergele itself offers a wide range of shops and utilities, with the commercial, retail, and leisure centres of Chester and Wrexham being within easy reach. The nearby A55 provides good access to Chester and the motorway network, and further afield to Liverpool and Manchester. There is a train service from Abergele & Pensarn via Chester or Colwyn Bay connecting to London. Ferries also run from Holyhead in Anglesey to Dublin.


A superbly refurbished 1865 Grade II listed gentleman's residence with a feature 60 foot tower, built for MP John Roberts and whose son became the fist Baron of Clwyd, with extensive grounds extending to just under 4 acres in total, a stylish mixing of the original and the contemporary retaining a wealth of original period features and refurbished to an extremely high specification, all set on the periphery of this popular and historic North Wales town.
