Map & Directions
Rooms & Rates
Expect no cell phone signal, award-winning food and some stunning country walks at this 16th-century inn with far-reaching views of the Berwyn Mountains and Hidden Valley in North Wales. The West Arms really is an escape from it all.
With cosy nooks, original beams and roaring log fires, this family-owned property brims with character and personable staff. There are opportunities for walking, mountain biking, horseback riding, golfing, fishing, canoeing and climbing in the area. Other nearby attractions include Snowdonia National Park, Chirk and Powis castles, Llangollen and Pistyll Rhaeadr waterfall.
Head chef Grant Williams once cooked for Prince Charles and has won praise from The Times for his “great, great Welsh cooking” at the AA-Rosette restaurant. Williams' 5-course tasting menu changes daily and uses locally-sourced produce. There is also a bar, serving snacks and an impressive range of real ales, with riverside gardens and more of those hill views.
The rooms are traditionally furnished and spread across the original inn and an annex in a newer part of the building, with views over the Berwyn Mountains or the pretty village. If possible, go for one of the Character rooms, furnished with brass or 4-poster beds, or one of the impressive suites, with free-standing baths, exposed beams and sitting areas.
Pets are welcome for a small fee in all bedrooms and public areas if supervised (with the exception of the formal dining room).
