Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A beautifully restored Grade II* listed Elizabethan mansion house occupying a commanding hillside position. For sale as a whole or in 2 lots.


Bodidris Hall is a fine late Elizabethan manor house built by the Lloyds of Bodidris, an important gentry family who rose toprominence under the Tudors.

The old stable block and Bodidris Cottage situated to the south west originally formed an impressive hall house and dated 1581 was built at the same time as Bodidris itself, possibly by Evan Lloyd who became Sheriff of Denbigh in 1583. Although in close proximity, it is thought that the two houses functioned independently, with separate gentry households (perhaps different generations of the Lloyd family) in each.

Alternatively the main house may have been built as guest accommodation for the Earl of Leicester, who fought with Evan Lloyd in Ireland and knighted him in 1586. Leicester is said to have used Bodidris between 1563 and 1578 as his hunting lodge and his heraldic badge, the bear and the ragged staff, appears on the south gate.

During the 19th century the ownership of Bodidris passed to the Williams family of Bodelwyddan Castle. Sir Hugh Williams gave money for the new school at Llandegla and his sister paid for the rebuilding of Llandegla church.


Lot 1
Bodidris Hall is a substantial stone Manor House with a slate roof. Part timbered sections offer clues to the evolution of the house and fine stone mullioned windows and oak doors are a particular feature of the property. In spite of its scale Bodidris is well balanced for modern family living and has been impressively restored with the work having just been completed.

The heavy panelled front door beside a stone terrace adjacent to a large gravelled parking area at the side of the house opens into a hall with a stone floor, a cloakroom and wc. It leads to a reception hall linking the kitchen to the main reception rooms and containing wonderful ancient stairs described in a brass plaque as a duelling staircase. Beneath the stairs is a larder/wine store.

A fine oak partition provides the division from the superb family kitchen with an excellent bespoke Clive Christian kitchen with high quality appliances, including a LaCanche cooking range, marble work tops and a substantial island. At the opposite end of the room is an area for dining and beside a door to the back hall a seating area within a former inglenook. Off the back hall is a second staircase and a corridor with fitted cupboards leading to a utility room. A door opens onto the drive.

At the front of the house offering views over the grounds and valley beyond is an impressive drawing room with heavy oak beams, a fireplace and panelled walls and a dining room.

On the first floor is a stunning master bedroom suite with far reaching views, a dressing room and bathroom and two further suites. There are two staircases to the first floor with one leading to a space designed as a play room/cinema which links to a kitchen and WC. This area may offer scope for the creation of a staff flat. The second stairs leads to a landing serving three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Outside is a large walled garden, mainly laid to lawn and together with the drive contained within a private area accessed via substantial timber gates. In front of the house are rolling lawns leading to a lake.
