Hawarden Estate nestles within the rolling hills and sprawling farmland of Flintshire, North Wales. With Chester a few miles away across the English border, the Estate is home to Hawarden Old Castle, a 13th Century fortification constructed to defend the North Wales coast to the West.
However the heart of the Estate today can be found in the 18th Century Hawarden Castle, once home to former British Prime Minister William Ewart Gladstone, having previously belonged to the family of his wife, Catherine Glynne.
Today on the Hawarden Estate you will find an award winning Farm Shop, The Glynne Arms, residential properties and thousands of acres of working forestry and farmland. At the heart of everything, is a determination to make Hawarden a brilliant place to visit, stay and live and where the Estate’s current owners Charlie and Caroline promote their Good Life Experience Festival, where reconnecting with the great outdoors is their key offer to those who want to share in the well-being opportunities that nature offers.
Founded by Cerys Matthews, Steve ‘Abbo’ Abbott + Charlie & Caroline Gladstone, The Good Life Experience Festival offers many sensual experiences from talks and small workshops take place in Hawarden Old Castle, and the Drawing Room of Hawarden Castle and the opportunity to meet authors, entrepreneurs, activists, creatives, vets, stationers, actors, journalists, cooks, musicians, teachers, broadcasters, farmers, poets. The larger Drawing Room can seat around 100 people and will play host to a series of intimate talks and events all weekend long.
