Named after Mary Cornwallis-West or Patsy to her close friends and family. The original oil portraits of Patsy and her husband, Colonel Cornwallis-West, the former owner of the castle, are featured in the Inner Hallway of Ruthin Castle. Patsy was a renowned, vivacious hostess who was frequently visited at the castle by her lover, Edward, Prince of Wales. This is a striking bright silver room with a stunning feature bed regally draped from a ceiling coronet to echo the form of a four poster. It also features large antique mirrors and a corner bay window with views over the castle gardens, ancient mediaeval walls and the surrounding countryside. The large feature bathroom is again in silver, with a double bath-to-share, separate shower and walk-in wardrobe.
styled after Jennie Jerome, better known as Lady Randolph Churchill and mother of Sir Winston Churchill. Jennie was a frequent visitor to the castle and lived here at times following her marriage to George Cornwallis-West. This room is both dramatic and quirky, reflecting that Jennie was a writer by picturing bookcases around all the walls to create a library effect. The king size leather sleigh bed has pillars either side and features a prominent classical bust on a softly illuminated stand behind the bed. The bay window looks out over the castle gardens towards surrounding countryside. The room also features a unique open-plan, mirror-surrounded, bath area with a double bath-to-share shower combination, and private toilet.
A frequent visitor to Ruthin Castle, Lillie Langtry was a famous actress, a professional beauty, and another lover of Edward, Prince of Wales. This room has an eccentric country house feel, opulent and ornate in style with a modern black four poster bed. Behind the bed is a walk-in dressing room befitting an actress, with automatic lighting and open hanging space. The room features beautiful antique furniture, photographs of Lillie, an open fireplace, a red bedspread and a red chandelier that represent the lust and flamboyance associated with her character. A beautifully decorated screen reminiscent of the bedroom changing screens of her time, hides a large double bath-to-share with a separate double shower room and toilet. A large bay window overlooks the castle gardens and woodland.
