Owner Profile

History
The site was first occupied by a son of Baron Mostyn of Mostyn in the 15th Century. In 1670, the title of 'Baronet' was conferred on Edward Mostyn of Talacre by Charles II in gratitude for his support in the Ulster Campaign. At that time, the family lived in a Jacobean Mansion House on the site. The current Mansion was built by the 7th Baronet Mostyn in the 1820s reflects the considerable wealth and status that the family had accrued. The House is late Regency in the Tudor-gothic style, built from Ashlar sandstone from the family's own quarries and using oak from the Estate. The Talacre Estate originally comprised over 6,300 acres, which included farms, quarries and woodlands around Talacre Hall, plus the Greenfield Valley industrial area and adjacent farms and extensive land with valuable mineral resources including lead and coal. Stone from Gwespyr quarries, besides being used for building was exported as sharpening stones worldwide. The Mostyns left the property in 1920 following the deaths of two Baronets in quick succession. It was occupied by an order of Benedictine Nuns as an Abbey until the late 20th Century when it once more became a family home.

Previously known as Talacre Hall the house was the culmination of four centuries of growth and prosperity for the Mostyns of Talacre.
With their links to the Tudors the Mostyns of Talacre enjoyed prosperity and stability during the turbulent days of Henry VIII's numerous marriages.

A separate branch of the family, the Mostyns of Mostyn, developed Llandudno as a Victorian seaside resort and still own much of the town.
The land covered by sand dunes at Talacre was then, as now, known as the Warren, because of a large rabbit colony.

In Tudor Britain the Crown claimed ownership of the colonies because of their importance in the domestic food supply and only favoured families were granted rights to breed and kill the animals.
The Mostyns of Talacre were one such fortunate family in Wales - indicating the extent of their influence.

The original estate was home to Basingwerk Monastery, which brought with it the land and minerals that underpinned the family's prosperity.
So much so that despite being punished for their Catholic faith following the Reformation and support for the Royalists during the Civil War they continued to prosper, before Edward the seventh Baronet of Mostyn, built Talacre Hall between 1825 and 1829.

The £70,000 (around £7m at today's value) house with it's octagonal turrets, was inspired by landmark Elizabethan buildings, like Hampton Court Palace, replaced an earlier Jacobean ancestral home.

  • An absolutely amazing place with a wonderful host

    Posted by Cassey on 26/02/2019

    We recently had a long weekend at the Castle for a family celebration. The Castle is the most incredible venue- pictures just can't do this place justice. It's clear that a lot of thought has gone into the layout of the rooms, furnishing and amenities- it's so comfortable and it's easy to feel really relaxed (and warm) in this huge venue. We had the full property and the Apartment and Suite were great - it also gave some of our guests a bit of extra privacy and space. All the bedrooms were great.
    The venue is really family friendly, we had a lot of kids and babies. The children in particular had the best time and were so excited about the house. The garden is brilliant with a good sized football pitch and good garden furniture.
    The owner, Janet, is a really wonderful, thoughtful and laid back host. Communication has been really clear and prompt both via Olivers Travels and direct with the venue. Her recommendations (e.g. Cheeky Chilli Events for catering) were spot on.
    The location is great for walkers in particular and is really close to the Beach. Prestatyn is close by which is really convenient.

  • Fantastic!

    Posted by Wendy on 25/02/2019

    This place is fantastic- amazing indoor and outside space. The host is really helpful and very professional.

  • Perfect venue!

    Posted by Phillip on 21/08/2018

    We recently visited as a family of 30+ and stayed for 1 week. The castle was the perfect size for us all with great indoor and outdoor spaces, plenty of garden area for rounders etc, and BBQ facility. The castle itself was in good condition and clean, and the perfect venue for our family get together. Janet greeted us on arrival day and was exceptionally helpful throughout our stay. Would definitely visit again and recommend to others!

  • Absolutely fantastic!

    Posted by Irunn on 10/08/2018

    The Castle is absolutely fantastic and beautiful. Everyone had a wonderful time, both children and grownups. It really made a WOW factor for all of us. It is old and charming in all ways. We stayed there with 29 people and everyone had a fantastic time. We got married during our stay there and we had Dai and his family to serve us for two days, that was absolutely great and we all recommend them. All of us would definitely like to come there again, me and Tomas really hope we will someday. Absolutely all our best to Mostyn Castle!

  • Thank you so much

    Posted by Emma on 14/07/2018

    Posted by Andrea on 23/05/2018

    I stayed there this weekend with about 27 other lovely people for my friends' STEN Do. It is an amazing place with lovely comfortable rooms. The weather helped to. I would thoroughly recommend this place!

  • Stunning!

    Posted by Jayne on 10/05/2018

    Stayed at the castle last weekend for a 21st birthday celebration. The castle is stunning. We had the most amazing weekend, an added bonus was the weather was on our side so we were able to make the most of the beautiful grounds. It's spotlessly clean and very well equipped. I would highly recommend this venue.

  • This has the wow factor - fabulous

    Posted by Mary on 03/03/2018

    What a beautiful castle. the website does not do this wonderful castle justice. This has the wow factor. We went for family birthday. definitely will return. Can't recommend this highly enough.

  • 40th Birthday Celebration!

    Posted by Gemma on 06/11/2017

    I celebrated my 40th birthday here at the weekend and it was amazing. The castle itself is so much more wonderful in real life, the pictures don't do it justice. The owner Janet could not do enough to help us. She went above and beyond to make sure our stay was just perfect. We had a beautiful meal, roaring fires and danced and laughed all night. Thank you so much for letting us stay, we will remember it forever. I will certainly be recommending Mostyn castle to all of my friends.

  • Amazing
