More about Plas Penucha (the location)This is the translation of the Welsh message carved in the oak beam above the fireplace that greets you in the reception hall at Plas Penucha, Caerwys.
This unique farmhouse has been in the family of the owner since it was built over four hundred years ago during the reign of Elizabeth I. Indeed, there was a house on this site even before that time. Over the centuries it has been substantially altered and improved, but the improvements have never detracted from the beauty of the house, and whilst there is every modern convenience for the visitor, as soon as you pass over the threshold you are wafted back many centuries.
The house is situated within 2? acres of garden which have a natural beauty throughout the seasons of the year and beyond them is surrounding farmland which, in turn, looks out towards the Clwydian Hills. The grounds contain a large rock garden and many species of rhododendron.
Plas Penucha is situated two miles from Caerwys, the smallest town in the country and the birthplace of the National Eisteddfod of Wales and six miles from Saint Asaph, with the smallest medieval Cathedral in the country.
It is an extremely convenient position for touring North Wales - to the east are the cities of Chester and Liverpool together with the Wirral Peninsula while in the opposite direction the whole of the North Wales coast, the Snowdonia National Park, Anglesey, Llangollen and the Vale of Clwyd are all within easy reach.
Plas Penucha (the cottage)Plas Penucha has been in the same family for many years and our guests are able to enjoy the beauty and serenity of the large house and gardens which combine a sense of graceful elegance with the genuine welcome of a family home. The oldest sections of the house date back to the mid fifteenth century and various additions over the centuries have seen it grow into a splendid country home full of character and charm. The gardens, including the formal rock garden, were laid out at the turn of the last century at the same time as the last major additions to the house were made and the rolling hills beyond create a stunning backdrop.
The dining room and lounge are both situated in the oldest part of the house - the one room built over an old spring and the other with Elizabethan panelling and both of them enjoy sublime views over the gardens and onto the distant hills. Colour TV and radio are provided (or, alternatively, those with a need to relax....and plenty of patience....may choose to avail themselves of a large range of jigsaws!).
Four bedrooms are available for guests - 1 double room en suite, 1 twin room ensuite,
1 double room, and 1 twin room all with wash hand basins, shaver points and hairdryers. Separate bath/shower and toilet facilities are provided as are tea and coffee making facilities. Drying facilities are also available for walkers and ramblers. We are open throughout the year, with central heating and log fires out of season. Our guests are provided with either a British or Continental breakfast and for those who are touring or walking in the area, we can also provide packed lunches. Evening meals can be provided by prior arrangement. Our more athletic guests may wish to avail themselves of the many excellent sporting facilities available locally. These include swimming, horse riding, golf, walking (Offa's Dyke is close) and various pursuits on or around the Brenig Reservoir.
