More about Penpont (the location)This privately owned Grade I* listed house has been home to the same family since it was first built in about 1666. In 1992 Gavin and Davina Hogg, with their two sons, moved in and opened up the house and grounds for the first time in its history.
Magnificent in its grounds and on the banks of the River Usk, Penpont lies in the middle of a 2000 acre working rural estate. The house is the centre piece of a remarkable group of buildings spanning various periods, including a church, Dower house, stables, workshops, a dovecote on stilts and a 19 century conservatory.
Around the house lies extensive grounds, sweeping lawns, the old Victorian rose and walled gardens, riverside and woodland walks and more recently constructed the Green Man Maze and The Forest Garden.
Time has stood still at Penpont for much of the last century. This has contributed greatly to the unspoilt charm and tranquility which characterise the house and grounds. However, over the last 12 years a challenging yet sympathetic restoration programme has been undertaken.
Penpont (the cottage)The self contained Courtyard Wing can be found to the rear of the main house. It has its own entrance through an enclosed courtyard and can sleep up to 17 people within six bedrooms. The building, which was originally the servants? quarters, is reached by a flight of steep wooden stairs to the first floor.
