Nestled in the heart of the Welsh valleys, The West Arms offers guests a scenic escape, perfect for that successful corporate away day or meeting.
As you meander through the hills of the unspoiled Ceiriog Valley, the vale opens onto the quaint village of Llanarmon DC, and over the old stone bridge, you’ll find The West Arms. Set in the picturesque backdrop of the Berwyn Mountains, the historic inn dates back to the 16th century and still retains many of its original features. Low ceilings with exposed oak beams, natural flagstone floors and traditional inglenook fireplaces have been lovingly restored by new owners Nicky and Mark Williamson. The husband and wife team have combined old-world charm with modern luxury to create the perfect ambience for guests seeking an idyllic spot.
16 unique rooms offer quirkiness and character, from expansive split level accommodation to rooms offering stunning views of the surrounding valley. The restaurant, run by celebrity Head Chef Grant Williams consistently features in the prestigious Good Food Guide. Grant was the finalist in ITV’s Britain’s Best Dish, and his renowned talents have even been called upon by HRH Prince of Wales. Seasonal dishes expertly prepared using fresh, local produce can be enjoyed in the award-winning restaurant or in the laid-back comfort of the bar.
The benefits of a change of scenery when it comes to stimulating fresh ideas and enthusiasm are unquestionable. The West Arms offers your team the chance to unwind, bond and network away from the stresses of the workplace. With delegate packages available from just one hour upwards, there are options to suit all budgets. The hotel can put together a bespoke package, whether you are looking to host a relaxed meeting or an unforgettable away day.
In the midst of the natural variety of the Welsh countryside, the hotel offers a range of activities just moments from its doorstep. Your team can enjoy hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, golfing, fishing, canoeing and climbing in some of the most spectacular scenery the UK has to offer. Important Welsh landmarks including Snowdonia National Park, the grand 14th century Chirk Castle, and Pistyll Rhaeadr waterfall (famous for the Timotei shampoo advert!) are all only a short drive away.
With a strong corporate background, Nicky prides herself on knowing what businesses require for a productive meeting or away day. Formal and informal, large and small the team can pull off the trick of making work feel like fun. Snug rooms are available for intimate gatherings in front of roaring fires, while in the summer months, marquees offer spectacular views over the lush North Wales landscape. Sit back and let the venue provide the food, drink and ambience to let you concentrate on making the most from your time away.
