Hire the Hall – sleeps 28

Bryn Tanat Hall is a luxurious home for large group holidays and short breaks, sitting on the mid Wales border with Shropshire near to Oswestry and Welshpool and within an hours’ drive of Shrewsbury and Chester.

The house offers self-catering, or catered accommodation for large groups of up to 28 people, in 14 individually designed bedrooms.  Lovingly restored and modernised the Hall is a perfect country house for a getaway, reunion, small intimate wedding or business retreat.

Home from home

Living Spaces

Relax, this is your home. Spread out, put your feet up, revel in the warmth of the open fire with free logs. Fire up some family flicks on the 50-inch Smart TV or DVD player, tap into the free wifi, sink into the many sofas. This is the home with the feel of a hotel, with guests you’ve personally invited yourself.

Behind the sitting room, snooker balls wait to be potted. Pour a stiff drink and knock a few down before dinner. Bash out a tune on the Bechstein baby grand. Enjoy the wooden beams, exposed stone and roaring fires, with room to escape to the second lounge for a little me-time.

Fine dining or al fresco?

Cooking and dining

The kitchen’s spectacular in all its gleaming glory, with two two-ring induction hobs, one four-ring induction hob, three ovens and two dishwashers, commercial fridge and freezer, but you might prefer to take it easy. Practise a little sofology as our chef stir and simmer their way to a fine-dining evening meal, a relaxed supper, a buffet or simply a drop-off meal or two.

Dine around the cosy oval table (seating 14) or get everyone together in the terrace room (seating 28), scene of many a wedding. For dining al fresco, a small charge for gas and cleaning gets you summertime use of the Weber barbecue on the terrace amid landscaped grounds.

Family-friendly pub meals get no better than The Station Grill at Llansantffraid, where slow-braised Welsh brisket of beef and grilled sea trout sit happily by homemade crispy-chicken bites. At The Townhouse in Oswestry, fresh seasonal fare includes beef hash, Bombay cod, and steaks with triple-cooked chips.

Grab a mouth-watering dopiaza or dansak takeaway from The Simla Tandoori. Or top up the fridge with fresh fare from Llynclys Hall Farm Shop.

Spend some time in the Sauna. The radiant heat from the Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna can penetrate deep below the skin producing a gentle warming inside the body.

There are many known benefits of using a full spectrum infrared sauna here are a few – improvement of skin and cellulite, reduces stress and fatigue, eases arthritis, joint pain and stiffness, improves cardiac health and lowers blood pressure, detoxification, improved immune system, relieves muscle pain, increased metabolism, burns calories and aids weight loss. Our sauna is programmed for 30 minutes per session and can be repeated once or twice during the day to maximise the benefits.

The 10 person hydrotherapy tub can help you de-stress and unwind, and time spent in the tub also helps to promote deep and restful sleep. Hot water soothes the muscles, boosts the circulation and aids the elimination of toxins, due to the hydro-massaging effects from the water jets that stimulate the lymphatic system.

Gardens & Grounds

Greenery is plentiful here. It all begins before you even arrive, winding your way through the Welsh border country. But the idyll’s only just begun, as you explore the 15 acres of rolling greenery that harbours a full-scale spa and the rushing waters of the River Tanat.

Make the most of it. In high summer, with the hall awash with wisteria, hire the Weber barbecue and dine out on the terrace amid the landscaping and the laburnum tunnels. Fish the river, walk the woodlands with their 2500 semi-mature and specimen trees, play a little croquet on the lawns.

Out there among the verdant pastures, there’s tennis to be played on the all-weather court and senses to be indulged in the hydro tub and sauna within the well-appointed spa. Picnic by the river, take a tipple on the terrace, pretend you never have to leave.
