Now on the market: this truly magical (if slightly decrepit) 26-bedroom Welsh castle

The Grade II-listed building has two and a half acres of sprawling grounds – and boasts breathtaking views over Snowdonia

Looking to buy a house and got a chunky £1.25 million ($1.63 million) to spare? Well, this charming nineteenth-century castle in Wales has just gone on the market – and though the price tag may sound steep, it does have a whopping 26 bedrooms. Probably worth it, in other words.

The Bryn Corach estate has two and a half acres of grounds – including a croquet lawn – and boasts breathtaking views over Conwy and Snowdonia. Inside, it’s all open fireplaces and vast French windows; outside, there’s a separate lodge house and a three-storey accommodation block, which previous owners used as a hotel.

There is one downside, however: the property needs a lot of work. The estate agent notes that planning permission has already been granted to demolish the slightly shabby modern extensions, which were added in the early twentieth century, but the castle itself is a Grade II-listed building – meaning you’ve just got to live like royalty. Life’s pretty tough, huh?
