BODRHYDDAN HALL


Rhyl is a young town whose history does not stretch back very far. Only a few miles away is Bodrhyddan Hall on the A5151 between Rhuddlan and Dyserth - officially in Rhuddan.

This is the family home of Lord Langford (pronounced Longford), a 17th century house with later additions. It is  a Grade 1 listed building with wonderful paintings and period furniture to see and a lovely garden to walk round.
