1 Bedroom, Sleeps 2
Llangollen, Denbighshire, North Wales, Wales
Capel Pennant is an old estate chapel on the Chirk Castle estate, only a mile from the National Trust castle, within the grounds of an historic seventeenth century upland manor house, Plas Pennant. The farmstead is sited at the head of a secret valley, 900ft above sea level, part of the glorious Ceiriog Valley, one of the hidden gems of North Wales, close to the border with Shropshire. There isn't another property in sight, so no road noise, no light pollution, just peace and quiet although only a short distance from Llangollen, Chirk and the market town of Oswestry. The chapel has been meticulously restored by Cadw's Inspector of Historic Buildings and fitted with beautiful antique furniture and paintings. The centrally heated accommodation includes a large sitting room open to the roof timbers, wood burning stove, fitted kitc... Read more

We live in Australia, but I grew up in North Wales and know it well. This ever so charming converted chapel is most definitely in one of the most beautiful locations you could choose. With a mile or two of single track road to access the property, a quiet and peaceful stay is guaranteed: even the horses, dogs, geese, roosters...

Beautiful cottage in a wonderful location - a remote and scenic valley but brilliant for exploring north Wales and Shropshire. We were really well looked after by Derek and Nick and the attention to detail was brilliant - the decor and restoration makes for a very special place. The cottage had everything we could want, the warm fires made it...

Everything about Capel Pennant is top notch. This beautifully and painstakingly restored 17th century chapel is an oasis in the incredible Welsh countryside. The attention to detail, from the rich decor and thoughtfully arranged amenities gives you the experience of a 5-star hotel with the cozy comfort that only this tucked away cottage on the incredible Chirk Castle Estate could...

We are very grateful for your review and particularly appreciate your positive comments. Thank you also for leaving the chapel so tidy when you left. We really hope...

About the neighborhood
Pennant is sited in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty within the Ceiriog Valley, a quiet backwater, a jewel in the crown of North Wales, a long meandering valley starting at the Chirk Castle estate and winding up through the villages of Pontfadog and Glyn Ceiriog up to the remote hamlet of Llanarmon Dyffryn Ceiriog with its wonderful coaching inns. The magical town of Llangollen with its steam heritage railway, the Ladies of Llangollen's home Plas Newydd, horse drawn canal boats and international music festival is only three miles from Pennant and walkable along an old drover's route. The Llangollen canal is part of the Froncysyllte Aquaduct World Heritage Site, again only a short distance from Pennant. Pennant is also close to Offa's Dyke, an ancient earth works defini... more
