This lovely renovated chapel is quite possibly the most romantic cottage in north Wales

Capel Pennant is an old estate chapel on the Chirk Castle estate within the grounds of a seventeenth century manor house, in an idyllic setting at the head of secret valley although only a mile as the crow flies from the National Trust castle.

Plas Pennant has been restored over the last twenty years by Nick Davies, Cadw's Inspector of Historic Buildings in north Wales. The chapel is furnished with antique furniture and paintings with fully fitted kitchen and shower room. There is full central heating as well as a wood burning stove. There is a paved terrace in front of the chapel with table and chairs and the chapel garden is for the exclusive use of the chapel guests.

The chapel is for the exclusive use of the guests. The chapel has its own garden but guests are welcome to explore the gardens of the manor house.

Nick and Derek live in the main house and will be on hand to offer and advice and suggestions.

There are free range hens, ducks and geese in the orchard and farmyard and you will often have a hen or two pecking around the threshold of the chapel. There are two Jack Russels and a Border Collie in the main house but all very friendly. Nick and Derek breed Irish Draught horses so there will be mares and foals in the surrounding fields.

We have change over days on a Monday and Friday and offer full week 7 night breaks commencing on either day; 3 night weekend breaks arriving on Friday afternoon and leaving on Monday morning; or 4 night weekday breaks arriving on Monday afternoon and leaving on Friday afternoon. We can be a bit more flexible during quiet times of the year, so get in touch to discuss.

Plas Pennant is in the Ceiriog Valley, within the Clwydian Range and Dee Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and part of the Chirk Castle Estate. The National Trust own the historic Edward I castle and 600 acres of surrounding parkland. Plas Pennant is at the head of an isolated private valley only a mile as the crow flies from the castle, 3 miles from Chirk and 2.5 miles from Llangollen. There is a pub and post office at the nearby village of Pontfadog 1.5 miles.
