Description from owner

Description

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 kitchen, bedroom with antique iron bed, and shower room. There is a private terrace with table and chairs and the chapel garden with far reaching views

The North Wales 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.



Llangollen

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.

“Idilic.”

Reviewed 30 Oct 2016

Beautiful setting, if you want peace and quite, this is the place for you. Nick and Derek have done a fantastic job on the restoration. The only reason we didn't give it 5 stars, the bedroom was not to our liking, low ceiling. But had a superb week exploring the area.

Thank you very much for the feedback Patricia - it's much appreciated. I'm sorry you found the ceiling height in the bedroom a problem. That's the trouble with historic buildings - they are a bit quirky - and at 6'6" your husband obviously needs more generous headroom. We're really glad though you had an enjoyable week overall. Best wishes, Nick & Derek
