The Denbighshire region

North Wales is a wonderfully unspoilt, predominantly rural part of the UK, rich in history, famous for the Welsh language, its historic castles and abbeys, medieval walled towns, churches, non-conformist chapels, mountainous scenery, dramatic coastline, sandy beaches and heritage steam railways. It is easily accessible by road, rail and air, close to the motorway network, only an hour from Manchester Airport and well served with mainline railway stations.


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 defining the English / Welsh border which crosses the parkland to Chirk Castle. The local market town of Oswestry is within easy reach and the historic county towns of Chester and Shrewsbury are only half an hour away.
