Our Very Own Legend
Owain Glyndŵr, who declared himself Prince of Wales in 1400 and fought a war against the crown which saw his forces control most of Wales for a number of years. September 16th is Owain Glyndŵr Day.
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.
