Historic north wales guesthouse on market for first time in 30 years

Bron-y-Graig, a guesthouse situated in the North Wales countryside on the outskirts of Corwen, has been brought to the property market for the first time in 30 years.

The property is a historic courtyard house constructed in 1888, as the family home of Robert David Roberts, the founder of successful Welsh wholesalers Roberts and Co, and who was later elevated to the position of High Sheriff of Denbighshire.

The property has only had three owners in the past 140 years. Following the death of Mr. Roberts, the property was inherited by his daughter Christina who lived in the house until 1978.

The main house comprises eight bedrooms with William Morris décor alongside a 22-cover dining room, guest drawing room, and large commercial kitchen. Across the courtyard, are the former stables which have been converted into a self-catering holiday cottage, providing an additional two letting bedrooms.

The business has been owned by David Cowan and Judith Sansom since 1989 and operated as a guesthouse for the past 20 years. They are now seeking a sale in order to “enjoy a well-deserved” retirement.

David Cowan said: “We previously operated the business as a four-star hotel with a fully operational restaurant. Recently, however, we have traded as a lifestyle operation. Potential purchasers, have, therefore a solid base upon which to develop the fully licensed business and re-open the kitchen for dining.”

Tom O’Malley, senior business agent at Christie and Co, who is handling the sale, added: “Bron-y-Graig currently attracts high levels of repeat custom from walkers, shooters, and tourists who enjoy the views of the Llangollen steam railway.

“With clear potential to develop revenues and take the business forward we expect to receive interest from potential owner-operators looking to run their own small hotel in a beautiful part of North Wales.”

Bron-y-Graig is offered for sale on a freehold basis, with an asking price of £669,500.
