Palé Hall, Bala North Wales

On the edge of Snowdonia National Park within a dramatic 50 acre estate, Palé Hall is a historic, Grade II listed country house that is currently under-going an extensive refurbishment programme, set to open its doors this summer as a fine dining, luxury destination country house hotel.

New owners, Alan and Angela Harper, are personally overseeing the project to the very finest detail, and are working in association with Michael Caines who will be developing an exclusive fine dining restaurant for the property. The hotel’s 18 bedrooms have been individually designed using soft yet playful Zoffany furnishings and retaining historic highlights such as a bed that Queen Victoria once slept in and her original bath.

Beautiful large drawing rooms filled with books and board games will become the heart of the luxurious hotel after longs walks through the stunning natural surroundings, mornings shooting on neighbouring estates, and evenings fly fishing on the local streams.
