We like to think that the 14 lovingly designed bedrooms at Bryn Tanat Hall are as individual as our guests. Some are contemporary, some are traditional and some are surprising. Aromatherapy Associate goodies, fluffy bathrobes, sumptuous towels, 400-count sateen Egyptian cotton bed linen, downfeel hypoallergenic hollow fibre duvets and pillows come as standard throughout. While pocket sprung comfort mattresses guarantee a deep and restorative nights’ sleep. Five bedrooms have en-suite shower or bathrooms, while others have a private or shared bathroom.
Cello is the very spacious double room of the Leslie Suite. The room looks out onto the courtyard to the right and spectacular views of the Meifod valley to the left. The colour scheme is vibrant purple wallpaper with a musical theme in keeping with the inspiration and history behind the suite, famous composer Henry David Leslie and his family who resided at Bryn Tanat Hall for a number of years from 1857. The room is furnished with a large mirrored wardrobe and finished with soft velvet cushions and pewter lamp. The shared tiled en-suite is very modern with a shower and floor standing stone resin sink by Italian designers Antonio Lupi.
Oboe is the twin room of the Leslie Suite. The room overlooks the courtyard and is decorated with vibrant yellow and greys. The charming Nottambule Cole & Son wallpaper featuring a family of wide-eyed owls being a talking point of the room.

Bedroom Twelve is the second of our ground floor bedrooms. To reach it guests go past Bedroom Eleven and the wet room and up two steps. There are antique twin beds which can be joined together to make a super king size double and the beds are complemented by dark wooden antique furniture. One window is set into the feature natural stone wall with views over onto the lime avenue and the second window looks over the courtyard. The courtyard view in late spring gives you a wonderful sight of the wisteria in bloom and the blue hand painted wall paper in the room is a reminder during the rest of the year.
This room shares the adapted wet room. The wet room has a wide doorway, grab rails and a shower seat and power shower.
Bedroom Eleven is a ground floor twin bedded room which can be changed to accommodate any of our guests who may need a little extra help with their mobility. The layout can be changed to accommodate wheelchair users and can be set as a single room if required.

Access to Bedroom Eleven is via the front door (with ramp if required) and through the main hallway and close to the TV Lounge and Kitchen.
Bedroom Ten is a most unusual twin room on the first floor with views of both the courtyard and the lime avenue. The shape of the room suggested a novel solution to space and we have created a twin room with end to end beds with a built in dressing table between them.The room is en-suite with a wonderfully quirky wet room which again has been designed to make the most of a slightly unusual space.
Bedroom Nine is on the first floor and is possibly the most dramatic of our rooms. The contemporary furniture is hand crafted from the huge elm tree off the estate. The bed head wall is gorgeously papered in a dramatic Vivienne Westwood tartan paper which looks almost 3d. The paper was chosen to echo the Macpherson tartan which was Susan’s mother’s clan tartan and which has been used as upholstery on the dressing table chair. Step up from the room into the ultra modern wet room with a funky free standing basin and masses of showering space. Add to all that a spectacular view towards the Meifod valley for miles and miles and you can appreciate why this is one of our most popular rooms.
Bedroom Eight is on the first floor in the newest wing of Bryn Tanat Hall and enjoys views of the courtyard. The contemporary modern colour scheme perfectly complements the hand crafted elm furniture made from one of the estate elm trees. There is a five foot double bed with tall crystal lights – just perfect for bed time reading. The private bathroom is totally modern with shiny chrome fittings enhanced by the warm wood of the vanity unit and soft brown of the fully tiled room.
Bedroom Seven is our master suite. The largest room in the house, it enjoys a huge en-suite bathroom and is invariably chosen by the party organiser!

Bedroom Five is without doubt one of our most luxurious rooms. This second floor room is reached by an open oak staircase and looks out over the courtyard and is set under the eaves. The room has undergone refurbishment in November of this year and now features a stunning handmade oak kingsize bed made locally in Nantmawr. Deep warm tones of red highlight the detail of the beams which have now been exposed for all to enjoy. The shower and toilet are cunningly hidden into the wall space and there is a large vanity unit in the room.
Bedroom Four is in the oldest part of the house going back to the late 17th century. The ceiling beams echo the age of the house and the bay window gives views that are little changed since the house was built.
