Stay in a stunning suite at historic Nanteos Mansion
Nanteos Mansion has joined with Woman’s Weekly so you and a guest can enjoy a luxury hotel getaway at Nanteos Mansion, just outside Aberystwyth.
Packed full of intriguing history, Nanteos is a country house that happens to be a hotel. The mansion sits on the site of a house that dated back to 11th Century.
The building of Nanteos began in 1739 under the direction of Thomas Powell, MP for Cardiganshire, funded by the wealth of his wife Mary Frederick, granddaughter of Sir John Frederick, Lord Mayor of London. In its heyday the estate covered 33,000 acres.
These days, guests tend to visit Nanteos for exclusive parties and weddings, walking breaks, or simply to relax and explore the local countryside and coastal scenery.
Many of the original features remain and the house is full of art, antiques and curios.
Nanteos is known for housing the Nanteos Cup – supposedly made from the
True Cross, with the ability to heal those who drink from it. The cup is now housed in
The National Library of Wales and a replica is on display in the hotel reception.
The extensive grounds include the historic remains of the original walled garden, a lake and woodlands, ideal for bike rides, spotting wildlife and enjoying the beautiful estate.
The prize includes three nights in the Nightingale Suite. The lucky winner and their guest will also enjoy breakfast on the three mornings.
