History - Bryn y Gwynt is a house with many tales to tell. The original Jacobean house dates back to the early 1600s when it was believed to be a working farm. Surrounding land owners were Lord Mostyn and Lord Grosvenor. Such gentlemen enjoyed their horse racing and there were training grounds in nearby Halkyn and Downing. In the 1700s a group of such gentlemen decided a race ground would be a good idea in the area and in 1767 Holywell racecourse was formed. It was sited between Pantasaph and Babell, was 1 furlong in length and had a grandstand and a starters chair. Part of the racecourse ran along the North side of Bryn y Gwynt. In 1831 it is believed the house was owned by Sir Richard Bulkeley who owned a horse named Pickpocket. Pickpocket was to run in the Mostyn mile and his owner said that he would build another house if his horse won. Pickpocket did win that race and his prize money was used to build a Georgian style house close to the farmhouse. The property was known as Pickpocket Hall after the horse.
The house has had close connections with the Pantasaph Friary, convent and orphanage and has once been used to house nuns and orphans whilst the orphanage was being renovated.
Sometime during the 1900s, the two houses were joined together, first on the ground floor only and later the second floor was added to provide bathrooms.
In 1912 the house was sold by John Scott, retired Master Mariner to O Davies. Mr Davies it is believed, was a respected business man and horse dealer and thought the name Pickpocket Hall was not a fitting name and changed it back to Bryn y Gwynt. The house was sold in 1958 to the Hall family and land sold separately. The present owners bought the house in 1983.
