Betws-y-Coed is the busy hub of mountainous Snowdonia. By contrast, Penmachno, just four miles away, is an oasis of tranquillity. The village is an ideal marriage of calm and convenience, and there’s a bonus – you get to stay at Penmachno Hall.
We aren’t the only ones who rave about this place. Lauraine and Simon Awdry, a couple who go the extra mile when it comes to hospitality, warmth and friendliness, have an awards cabinet bursting with accolades. Their ‘dashingly renovated’ former rectory is country comfort epitomised. The warmly decorated bedrooms have all those luxury extras that discerning guests demand (including bathrobes), the food is delicious and inventive, the setting seductive.
The Hall stands in 2½ acres of gardens amongst inspiring walking and mountain biking country – the Hall can organise these and other activities.
