About Crogen Estate
Crogen Hall is a historic Welsh country house, dating back to the 13th century. It sits at the heart of the 2,500-acre Crogen Estate on the banks of the River Dee, with its own woodlands, moorland and mountainside. There is accommodation for 31 people (see below) with a further 3 double/twin rooms in Crogen Hall on request. It works perfectly for both corporate and private use and also weddings; Crogen Hall has a wedding licence. Crogen Hall and Wing are separated from the Coach House by a large lawn, with the Coach House being used as the ‘hub’.

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 4 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/Chirk (or Chester station is an hour away).
Things To Do
The Crogen Estate rolls over 2500 acres of North Wales, with superb country sport and outdoor pursuits literally on the doorstep. We have a private tennis court for our guests’ use and fishing is available on request. ‘Get Wet – The Adventure Company’ operates from Crogen Estate, and offers, amongst other things: paint-balling, white water rafting, bespoke activities on the estate.
The river Dee runs through the estate, and there is a summerhouse on the banks, which can be hired for parties, receptions or BBQs.
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.
Crogen holds a license for the Hall’s dining room for a wedding ceremony (fitting up to 50 guests) and it’s possible to put up a marquee on the main lawn to create space for the reception. There are no set packages and you are free to create your own experience; please get in touch for details.
