“Stunning location and amazing property”
Reviewed 31 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We rented the Chapel for a short break in August and although we knew the area we were bowled away by this amazing property in a lovely hidden valley just outside Chirk. The main house and two holiday let's have been restored and converted by their talented and charming owners and make for a comfortable and restful break. Friendly neighbours and livestock add to the charm. The chapel was beautifully decorated and furnished and included the owners' antiques and collectables. While in a peaceful valley, you can reach Llangollen and Shrewsbury very easily and quickly from this location, although it's so lovely I'm not sure you would want to stray far.

“Beautiful and peaceful”
Reviewed 25 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The converted chapel was totally charming and lived up to expectations. The Ceiriog Valley was beautiful and unspoiled - no road noise and wonderful wildlife on the doorstep. It was a cold day at the start of the rental but the wood burning stove was already lit and a wonderful welcome.

“Peace and comfort”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Capel Pennant was ideal for us while we walked on the Offa's Dyke path for a few days. The cottage was well equipped, very comfortable and stylish with lovely simple decor to compliment the character of the building. But it was the setting which really made it a wonderful place to stay. We were able to sit out each evening and watch all the wildlife, particularly the amazing swallows, circling around Plas Pennant itself and swooping down the lovely valley. although there was a TV it didn't get used even once. Highly recommended.

“Simply superb!”
Reviewed 10 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Capel Pennant is one of those remarkable places you never want to leave, cut off from the hustle and bustle of the world it is truly the perfect place to book if you need to get away from it all. From the sheep lazily bleating on the surrounding hillsides to the sounds of goldfinches chirping away and house martins swooping overhead, the first thing you will notice upon arrival is just how tranquil it is! The views down into the Ceiriog Valley are wonderful but don't forget to look up as well, the skies at night are pitch black and you get a very clear view of the stars

The accommodation was clean, cosy and decorated in a tasteful manner befitting the property. Absolutely no complaints about it whatsoever. The location was also ideal for visiting places such as Llangollen, Chester, Chirk Castle, the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, and the Pistyll Rhaeadr waterfall. Travelling further afield to Caernarfon Castle or Snowdon is also possible and only a 90 minute drive away taking in some fantastic scenery along the way.

There was certainly a sense of sadness when having to leave, Capel Pennant is perfect and I would definitely recommend it to others reading this review. If you're looking for somewhere to stay in the Ceiriog Valley/Llangollen area you wont find a finer place than this.
