Know It All
Hit the Spot
Midway between Chester and Shrewsbury, on the Welsh borders.
Come here for...
• Hillside seclusion far from the madding crowd. • Home-from-home comforts. • Spa baths in some rooms.
There's a comfy lounge with a log fire, and pretty gardens with a lily pond. In-room spa treatments can be arranged, and walking maps are available at Reception.
Good to know
Pack some walking boots so you can head for the hills. And do book well ahead at weekends – it's a sought-after spot.
Some rooms have spa baths or private patios. All have wi-fi and great garden or hillside views.
The Superior room boasts a Japanese style double spa bath with chillout music. Master rooms in the coach house have stone-walled private patios with views of the surrounding hills, while those in the main house have spa baths.
Eat & Drink
Pen-y-Dyffryn's restaurant has huge south-facing windows and daily changing menus using local and organic ingredients wherever possible. Chef David Morris's signature dishes include plenty of local game (the hotel even boasts its own deerstalker) and mains such as rack of local Welsh lamb wrapped in filo pastry with a chicken mousse and served with a thyme butter sauce.
Breakfast is served until 9.30am
Available morning and evening.
See & Do
Walking, hill riding and trout fishing are some of the big attractions here. Three major National Trust castles – medieval Powis, the 14th century fortress of Chirk and Erdigg at Wrexham – are within reach, as is Wales's highest waterfall at Pistyll Rhaedr, in the Berwyn mountain range. The medieval cities of Chester and Shrewsbury are stuffed with history.
Have a giggle at the cartoons and caricatures at the Shrewsbury Cartoon Festival.
