After our walk from Caerfai Bay to St Non's
we decided to go for coffee
to the lovely Warpool Court Hotel.
We approached the hotel through a tunnel of trees
I have been there several times to musical functions, weddings and also taken
friends and visitors for coffee.
It is so lovely and the views are outstanding!
We drove past the front to the car park under the trees and amidst the bluebells
We passed the red door (with the heraldry above it)
The doors from the lounge..
(oops excuse my crutch
I didn't realise until I was there!!)
...open onto a lovely garden overlooking the bay
It's a gorgeous place to be!!
Part of the history of the Court is:
"In 1899 the house was sold to a widow with six children,
Mrs Ada Landsowne Miller who renamed it
Assisted by her favourite son, Basil, Ada gave full reign to her hobby -
the decoration of ceramic tiles.
The extraordinary tiles depicting the
genealogy and heraldry
of the family's ancestry - many traced to the early kings of Wales -
may be seen in the
present dining room and bar lounge.
Other tile sequences painted by Ada include a beautiful nursery frieze copied from Walter Crane's 'Flora's Feast'. Arcadian landscapes and illustrated maxims on love in the 'Wedgewood Room.'"
The above photos and history have been copied with the permission of the management of the Warpool Court Hotel. Thank you
The rest of the photos I took, showing the tiles surrounding three fireplaces
and various wall panels
I hope that you agree this is a most beautiful place!?
