Penmaenuchaf Hall Hotel

Last updated: 26 December, 2023

A home-from-home escape in style is the order of the day at this Victorian mansion, located towards the quieter southern fringe of the Snowdonia National Park. It’s family run and feels very homely.

Set in a 21-acre estate, the vibe is relaxed reading in the wood-panelled drawing room and gentle strolling around the grounds to the sunken rose garden. Plus, of course, traditional-styled rooms and great local flavours on the menu.

The hotel boasts a gloriously rural setting near the village of Penmaenpool, ensuring fab views from the hotel’s conservatory and plenty of countryside tranquillity.

Surrounding area

The nearby market town of Dolgellau is worth a visit, notably for delicious coffee and cake at the T.H. Coffee Shop, a delightfully retro café set in a historic building.

For something more active, nearby Coed-y-Brenin Forest Park is home to some of Wales’ finest mountain biking trails and geocaching. The nearby village of Penmaenpool picks up one of the most popular sections of the Mawddach Trail, heading towards Barmouth Beach.
