9781854112286: Hearst's Other Castle

Welsh-born author Enfys McMurry tells the little-known story of St. Donat's Castle, a medieval structure on 111 acres. It has 135 rooms and dates to the 12th century. It overlooks the Bristol Channel on the Welsh coast between Cardiff and Swansea. Publisher William Randolph Hearst bought it in 1925, and it became an A-list retreat. Hearst hired Sir Charles Allom, knighted for his redecoration of Buckingham Palace, to lead an expansion and redecoration of the moldering Welsh estate. Hearst spent untold thousands on architectural adornment and art for St. Donat's. Guests included Winston Churchill, Welsh politician David Lloyd George, Bob Hope, Errol Flynn, Charlie Chaplin, Maurice Chevalier, Clark Gable and George Bernard Shaw. Joseph P. Kennedy, who was the American ambassador to Great Britain, visited with his wife, Rose, and their nine children, including a young JFK, who frolicked in the pool. Today the castle is home to Atlantic College.
