The Hand at Llanarmon

  The Hand at Llanarmon  

Located at the crossroads of two ancient drovers’ roads, The Hand at Llanarmon has provided hospitality for travellers for centuries. From its 16th Century farmhouse origins, it has been transformed into a modern hotel, restaurant and bar which radiates character and charm.

Head Chef, Grant Mulholland, has built a strong reputation for superb traditional food with a modern twist, all served with flair and generosity. The menu changes constantly, although certain ‘old favourites’ - such as steak and kidney pie, or slow braised shank of lamb, both with a rich gravy - just won’t go away. There’s always at least one vegetarian option, as well as fish, and with a bit of notice Grant, together with Second Chef Eifion Edwards, is happy to cater for special diets.

We serve meals in the bar lunchtimes and evenings, seven days a week, and in the restaurant every evening. The atmosphere in the bar is enhanced by oak beams and, in winter, a blazing log fire, while the restaurant has a wonderful wood-burning stove to keep you cosy. For special parties, we have an attractive private dining room, which can comfortably accommodate 20 people.

All our bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms, with a bath with shower over, television and tea and coffee making facilities - and we include freshly ground coffee and cafetieres. The rooms at the front, in the old farmhouse are slightly larger with queen size beds (the ‘Character Rooms’), while those at the back in the converted barns and stables (the ‘Country Rooms‘), are south-facing and look out on our field and the hill beyond.

The hotel is situated in glorious countryside at the head of the stunning Ceiriog Valley, with the wild and little-known Berwyn Mountains as a back-drop. This is a genuinely tranquil place in which to while away a few days, walking, horse-riding, or just sitting and soaking up the atmosphere. Almost any country pursuit can be arranged nearby. Some wonderful National Trust properties - Erddig, Chirk and Powis Castles - are nearby, and many of the popular attractions of North Wales, such as Snowdonia, Portmeirion, and Bodnant Gardens, provide a pleasant day out within easy striking distance.

Thanks to good road networks, we are easily reached from major centres and, although sufficiently off the beaten track, we are in fact only 34 miles from Chester, 28 from Shrewsbury, 82 miles from Birmingham, slightly less from Liverpool and Manchester, and 196 miles from London. Turn off the A5 at Chirk and follow the B4500, signposted to the Ceiriog Valley.

We look forward to welcoming you to The Hand at Llanarmon.
