After his defeat Wales’s great rebel leader became a fugitive and disappeared from historical record after 1412. What actually became of Glyndŵr remains a mystery, but there are plenty of stories and one pinpoints Hill Field alongside the hotel as his final resting place.

It is also said that Glyndŵr was born locally – it is known his mother’s family held lands in the area.
