We stayed at Penpark for a very brief weekend tour of the area. I have long wanted to see the house, designed by Clough Williams-Ellis, the architect who built Portmeirion in Wales. His personaility is very much in evidence in the house, which has been superbly maintained and retains its original character, even down to the wire bell pull at the entrance door.
The huge room we had was fantastic with a private balcony overlooking the immaculate garden and with fabulous views across the grounds to the edge of the moor beyond. The accommodation is very smart and very clean and in keeping with the house.
The hosts could not have been kinder and we thoroughly enjoyed our all-too-brief stay. Strongly recommended!!
