These days Ruthin in Denbighshire may be a chocolate-box town of pretty architecture, scenic greenery, and fine food, but the North Wales site harbours a dark past of bloody murder, passion, and intrigue. Discover its most dramatic secrets with this week's Escape to the place at the heart of many of them: none other than Ruthin Castle Hotel.

Investigate the town's curious history with a getaway to the luxurious venue: a two-night stay for two people in a Noble Room is just £169 (up to a £414.95 value). The truth is that your accommodation is designed to keep you from wanting to leave: expect four-star quality including elegant décor, TV, minibar, 24-hour room service, Wi-Fi access, and modern en suite with bath or shower and slate character features such as vanity unit.

Witness stolen kisses and keep your eyes peeled for the ghost of Lady Grey over your inclusive Welsh bakery breakfast each morning and three-course meal at Bertie's Restaurant, which has been awarded two AA Rosettes. Follow the clues back here on the second night and you'll receive a bottle of wine when you dine—and why not, with temptations such as smoked haddock kedgeree, fillet of Welsh Black beef, free-range Oswestry chicken breast on colcannon mash, and dark chocolate fondant with a white chocolate centre on the menu?

Not to throw you off the trail of the castle itself—the site was, after all, where King Arthur and Edward VII both conducted torrid affairs—but there's more to be discovered elsewhere in the area: the Old County Gaol, Pendref Chapel, and Nantclwyd House for history buffs; the massive new Ruthin Craft Centre for arty types; the independent shops of St. Peter's Square for retail therapy; and further afield, the Clwydian Range Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty for breathtakingly scenic walks. And that's the whole truth.

This Escape is for two people, and is not valid for stays on a Saturday night. Got a question? Contact our Travel Concierge on escapes.uk@livingsocial.co.uk.

  • "The Clwydian Range, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1985 is a great destination for walking, cycling, horse riding, and many other activities."
