Pengwern Country House Accommodation

Pengwern is a charming non-smoking licensed 4 star country house built of Welsh stone and slate situated approximately 1 mile south of Betws-y-Coed. It stands on the edge of its own wild woods with views to the magnificent Lledr valley, one of the most beautiful in Wales.

According to local records a farm dwelling has been on this site since pre 1800 and during the early Victorian era was transformed into a country house. In recent years the house, as featured in 'Home' magazine August 2000, has been lovingly restored to its former elegance by your hosts Marilyn and Roger Penwill.

A warm welcome is assured from Roger and Marilyn Penwill as soon as you enter the slate floored entrance hall of this comfortable country house. The lounge to your left, and dining room to your right, both with wood burning stoves, provide warmth and comfort and the lounge is a relaxing area to enjoy complimentary welcome refreshments. Pengwern has been accredited "Taste of Wales" for its extensive use of Welsh produce. A Welsh breakfast is cooked by Marilyn using local produce, and a selection of locally produced yoghurts, preserves and home made fruit compote are offered. A set dinner is available by prior arrangement and is accompanied by delicious home made bread and good value wines.

Upstairs, the beamed bedrooms and ensuite facilities are beautifully furnished and in order to maintain Pengwern's artistic history, each bedroom has been named after an artist who resided at the house during the mid to late 1800s.

Attached to the house there is a superbly furnished self catering cottage available for letting.
