Tucked away in the dramatic Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park, Penmaenuchaf offers a relaxing, mountain retreat. Steeped in history, Penmaenuchaf is the perfect choice for those seeking to explore the local area rich in Welsh myth and legend, and those looking for both a cultural or adventure stay.

Alongside a peaceful getaway in one of 13 uniquely designed rooms and suites, guests can enjoy a relaxed dining experience of creative, modern British dishes. Head chef Thomas Hine has created a menu full of flavour using high-quality, seasonal produce, much of which is sourced right from within the national park itself.

Spanning 21 acres of breathtaking scenery, guests can nurture body, mind and soul, whether they’re meandering the perfectly manicured gardens, or venturing across the many scenic walking routes that line this dramatic part of the country.

Penmaenuchaf is the true definition of “hiraeth,” a nostalgia for the place your soul feels most at home. Inspired by the dramatic ancient landscape overlooking the Mawddach Estuary, this is a grand old country house hotel with its own beautiful history, and each room has its own unique and characterful appeal.
