Bodysgallen is situated on the west of Pydew mountain, almost invisible except for its chimneys which overtop the trees. In 1810, the historian Fenton noted that it is ’embosomed in woods of noble growth, which suffered to luxuriate their own way without any fear of the axe’.
Despite the gradual addition of one wing, then another, during a building history of 600 years, the whole house is built in the same sturdy and conservative style. The name may mean either ‘house among thistles’ or ‘the abode of Cadwallon’, a 6th century chieftain. The oldest part of the house is a five storey tower, probably dating from the late 13th century, and possibly built as a watch tower for Conwy Castle
