“Resting in a valley on the Wales/England border is a country house hideaway ideal of nature lovers. Glorious views, comfort and antique furnishings make up the large rooms. Breakfast in bed, or on the terrace, is the perfect way to start your day in the green green grasses of Shropshire.”

Hotel Overview

“When you arrive you will be offered complimentary high tea. This is a welcoming place and, like a cruise liner, Pen-y-Dyffryn produces a daily news sheet (for example, ‘Good Morning, it’s Thursday’) with a weather forecast, suggestions for local activities and a ‘walk of the day’. The owner (a retired academic) circulates among the breakfast tables with helpful advice. You feel strongly that she and her husband want you to enjoy yourself. The rooms are not cutting-edge modern, but they are clean, comfortable and have fine views. Some baths have spas that tickle you with bubbles. The astonishing value is underlined by the good four-course dinner and hearty breakfast that are included in the room price.”

Recommended for
  • Foodies
  • From the pan-fried wood pigeon to the Pantysgawn goat’s cheese mousse the ever changing menu will never fail to satisfy.
  • Hideaway
  • In room massages, Daffodil filled walks along the river and long evenings by the fire- hard to get away!
