Gloddaeth Hall

Gloddaeth Hall originated as a large country house in Llandudno, Conwy, Wales. It is designated by Cadw as a Grade I listed building.[1] It stands on land which had been owned by the Mostyn family since the 15th century. The core of the building is a sixteenth century hall and two storey solar block, built of stone rubble with freestone dressings.[2] There are gabled stone slate roofs.[2] The hall is open to the hammer beam roof.[2] The lower room of the solar has sixteenth century panelling, the upper seventeenth century panelling.[2] A wing to the east was added around 1700.[1]

In the 19th century, further additions were made to the building by William E. Nesfield,[1] and by John Douglas, who designed a new west wing for Augusta, Lady Mostyn in 1889.[3] The hall now forms part of St David's College.[1]

A seventeenth century dovecote remains.[2] Some elements of the formal gardens to the south-east may also be seventeenth century.[2]
