Self Catering Accommodation
A UNIQUE PLACE TO STAY IN WALES
The Old Police Station has been lovingly renovated and restored by husband and wife team Peter and Caroline and transformed into luxury self catering accommodation for up to eight guests.
Built in 1871 as a police station with four cells and accommodation for the constable and his family; the building was to provide all the functions of police administration plus a courtroom on the same site to make transfer of prisoners from cell to court much easier and secure. In keeping with the developing Victorian sense of civic pride and no doubt, to impart a measure of gravitas to the judicial procedure, this building occupies a prominent location in the town and makes an ordered and dignified presence on the high street.
Built with walls of local Welsh slate the Old Police Station is a notable Grade II listed building situated in the town centre of Corwen, Denbighshire and it is not without blood, sweat and tears that Peter and Caroline have spent three years renovating the property. We have worked closely with the local Conservation Officer to maintain its character and historical significance and we were over the moon when she visited and said that she was delighted by what had been achieved.
Accommodating eight people the Old Police Station has four bedrooms and benefits from three modern bathrooms, there is a lounge/ dining room and also a bespoke kitchen, utility/ drying room and snug which are accommodated in the original downstairs cells complete with peephole doors, bars on windows and vaulted ceilings.
The interior corridor still retains its barred gate and outside what was the original exercise yard is a walled courtyard garden. There is also private parking for two cars and bike/ storage facilities.
The interest and support that the renovation has had from local residents and people passing by has been tremendous and Caroline and Peter hope that they have now returned Corwen Old Police Station back to the imposing building that it once was.
