Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A grade 1 listed, quite important historic house. A walk in the gardens followed by a guided tour for and hour. Very fascinating piece of history.

I am still debating why this was actually our first visit to this lovely hall and gardens having passed it several times. We attended the Classic Car Show which runs a couple of times each year and had every intention to go around the hall and gardens. Unfortunately though the Hall was closed but after seeing the car show we took a stroll around the lovely gardens. Having seen some tantalising glimpses inside the house we will be back for sure. The gardens are excellent, being a well laid out combination of ornamental and woodland. There looks as though there had been a wedding on the previous day in the grounds - you can see why this splendid location was chosen as it is almost picture perfect.

We thoroughly enjoyed our family visit to this magnificent and quirky estate. Great fun for all the family! The tea and cake was a must and soooo delicious, better scones than you can find in Cornwall! Served by 2 lovely ladies. All the staff and the Lady/Lord if the manor could not have been more welcoming and we all enjoyed meeting and seeing the gorgeous Dalmatian’s running around! The gardens and magnificent and the children (7&12) loved running around and exploring. I would highly recommend the tour which was amazing and so informative and interesting. The lady doing the tour was new ( covering the usual guide who was off) she was absolutely brilliant and really made it interesting and interactive for the children as well as the adults without boring us to tears. We all agreed it was one of our favourite trip of the week in north wales and I’d highly recommend. Thank you for letting us into your wonderful home!

Reassuringly different, Bodrhyddan Hall is a family home open to the public for 2 afternoons a week in summer months. The hall itself is a handsome building and its quirky interior has on display a small number of rooms exhibiting family heirlooms. Perhaps the most unusual is the small Egyptian room with a pair of sarcophagi and a 3000 year old mummy! The first floor sitting room houses a collection of rare pottery and overlooks the well tended parterre below. Make sure you visit the tea room housed in the former billiard room. The home made cream cake is delicious and the tea is served in bone china as you might expect. The house tour is a must and takes around 75minutes.
The garden is not large and as a contrast to the formal parterre the surrounds are planted with mature trees and neatly clipped lawns with occasional folly buildings popping up at strategic viewpoints. This area is at is best in late afternoon as the dappled sunshine dances through the trees giving a spectacle of light.

Nice hall when you find it. My SatNav told me it was about 2 miles east on Dyserth Road and only by luck did we find signage when we back tracked to Rhuddlan.
Although we arrived late for our booked tour we were still made welcome and three individual guides provided a short history of different areas of the hall.
We saw 3000 year old Egyptian mummies, lots of guns and swords on the ground floor.
Upstairs there was some very ornate carved and gilded wood bookcases and fireplace panels.
No internal pictures allowed as still a family home.
Gardens are not big but the parterre near the hall was quite attractive.

Hi Anne, sorry that the event did not meet your expectations. We did try to get as many food and plant sellers to compliment the pottery event but it seems that since COVID many of these smaller traders have been unable to continue. It is something we are trying to remedy for next year and considering the event was a huge success for all involved, we hope it will draw more traders next year. That said, I do think you are being slightly unfair with your review. We had a total of 38 pitches, 13 of which were plants and 8 were food and drink (fruit & veg, cakes, fudge, gin & whiskey, cheese, local honey, jams and african chutney). We also had ice cream and the local cafe who provided refreshments such as sandwiches, tea, coffee and cake as well as other refreshments. These were not on the main part of the drive so you may have missed them if you were in a hurry. The rest of the stalls were not just crafts but traders who tied into the plant element such as outdoor furniture, garden ornaments and bird tables. However, we do take your comments on board and will look to attract a more specialised variety of traders in the future.

Visited this event shortly after it opened yesterday and my first impression was that we must be in the wrong place. I enquired at the reception asking where the plants and food event was only to be told by a rather curt and obnoxious gentleman that the dozen or so gazebos selling grotty cakes and a few plants is all there is. There was a large pottery sale on at the same time which looked like the main event but to advertise as plants pots and food is ridiculous.

Hi Jane, or is it Fred? As this is a copy and paste of the same review you left on our Google page. As I replied to you there, I very much doubt you did attend this event but if you do want to come today in person the event runs from 10-4pm

Visited today for what was advertised as a pots plants and food market but it turned out to be a 99% art pottery exhibition with just one or two stalls selling cheap plants. Paid our £10 entry fee but once inside had to return to my car to get my walking stick. On the way out I made sure the staff on the gate knew I had already paid but when I returned they insisted I pay again! Very aggressive and rude staff on the gate and the market was not as advertised. Beautiful site let down by their staff.

Hello, thanks for the review. The exchange you’re describing simply did not happen. We let hundreds of people back and forth through the day on nothing but their word alone. We have 32 plant, food and craft exhibitors this year complimented by 80 potters and ceramicist so not exactly 99% but I take on board your feedback and we will look to balance things out in the future.

Visited today for the No Mans Land event. The parking is close by the house and grounds and was very well organised.
The house wasn’t open so I can’t comment on that but the gardens are beautiful. We took a picnic and found lots of seating, benches and tables, in the fabulous gardens. The event was great, very much for reenactors, lots to talk to and lots of things in the arena to keep everyone interested.
The event is set up mainly in the fields, these are not even, not flat and you need to really keep your wits about you to ensure you don’t turn an ankle!
Yes there was dog poo around which is a shame but also a lot of sheep poo but …. You are in fields so you got to expect sheep poo!!!
Lovely place, worth a visit and definitely if there’s an event on.
