An estate offering the very best of life in Wales – beautiful, dramatic and private countryside, outstanding country and water sports, and some fabulous food.

The Crogen Estate is a Welsh country house, built as a rather special shooting lodge.The estate sleeps up to 46 in flexible accommodation, and works beautifully for both corporate and private use.

Crogen Hall

Sleeps 12 in 6 bedrooms with 5 bathrooms. The Hall sits in lovely gardens, and has a tennis court in what once was the walled kitchen gardens and the River Dee running through the back of the main garden.

The Coach House

Sleeps 16 in 8 bedrooms, with 5 bathrooms (2 of which are en-suite). The reception rooms include a large kitchen with Aga and woodburning stove, dining room and drawing room with open fires, and games room with table tennis. The house has a private walled garden, and a south-facing veranda with terrace – perfect for al fresco dining. The Coach House is available to rent separately, priced from £1,500.

The Wing

Sleeps 4 in 2 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms. There is also a sofa bed for an extra 2 in the sitting room, and a kitchen with a dining table. The Wing has its own entrance and parking and is newly renovated.

Bryn Awel

Sleeps 2 in 1 large bedroom. Downstairs is a galley kitchen and a sitting room with a dining table. ‘Bryn Awel’ means ‘windy hill’ in Welsh, but it’s the hill that offers the beautiful views – not much wind ever gets through the cottage’s thick walls!

Dolgadfa

Sleeps 12 self-catering guests. It is owned by a family member and is situated just over the River Dee from the main estate.

Edmund’s Choice of Extraordinary Feature

“Crogen (pronounced Crog to rhyme with Frog – Crog-‘n) really was built for country sport, and the shoot is famous for its high-quality. The hospitality of the estate is top-notch, with every comfort thought of.”

About the Location

The estate is off the A5, in mid-Wales. It is about a 3½ hours’ drive from Central London, and 2 hours’ drive from Birmingham, Manchester and Liverpool. The nearest train station is about 40 minutes away, at Ruabon. Whirly Birds can be accommodated.

Things To Do

The Crogen Estate rolls over 2500 acres of North Wales, with superb country sport and outdoor pursuits literally on the doorstep. ‘Get Wet – The Adventure Company’ operates from Coed Craig-Crogen, a woodland on the south of the estate. Amongst other things, Get Wet offers high ropes, paint-balling, gorge-walking, raft-building and other river activities – and is only a gentle walk from the main estate properties.

The river Dee runs through the estate, and there is a summerhouse on the banks, which can be hired for parties, wedding receptions or BBQ’s.

There is also plenty to do off the estate; Portmeirion Village (famous for being built to show how architecture can enhance natural landscape) is close by, as is Snowdonia National Park, and some of the best white-water rafting in Wales.

Weddings

Crogen holds a license in the Hall’s dining room for a wedding ceremony (fitting up to 50 guests), and your guests are welcome to use the drawing room and gardens. Alternatively, you can be married in the drawing room of the Coach House (seating up to 50). The wedding breakfast or reception can be as simple or elaborate as you might like, and include marquees, teepees or a country-fete type tent. Do look at the house’s Wedding Page for further information.

House History

There has been a house at Crogen since the 1300's. It underwent renovation and modernisation in 1831, by the Earl of Dudley. The Earl wished to use Crogen as his hunting lodge, and the estate still runs an enormously successful shoot today. The estate was leased and then bought by Henry Robertson in 1864 – Henry was a civil engineer, entrepreneur, industrialist and politician, who also built Palé Hall nearby. In 1889, Queen Victoria came to stay with the Robertsons and Crogen still has much of the memorabilia from that visit. The house remains in the Robertson family.
