Popty Pennant is an old bakehouse in the grounds of an historic seventeenth century upland manor house on the Chirk Castle estate at the head of a secret valley, part of the Ceiriog Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

The space

Popty Pennant is a tiny cottage - a converted bakehouse with stone flagged floor, beamed ceiling, white washed walls and an old cast iron range with open fire and stove. It's furnished with traditional antique pieces, a couple of comfortable arm chairs and a scrubbed top table. The cosy crog-loft bedroom with comfortable double bed looks down on to sitting room and open fire. The kitchen has an old dresser, full size oven, microwave and fridge and is fully equipped. There is also a modern shower room.

Guest access

The cottage is exclusively yours with a bench and table and chairs on the terrace. Guest are free to explore the gardens of the manor house and there are more garden chairs down by the gazebo which provide a great view from the top of the ha ha over the front fields and south towards the Ceiriog Valley. There is undercover parking in the cart shed in the farmyard, only about 50 yards from the cottage.

Interaction with guests

Nick and Derek live in the main house and are more than willing to provide help and advice during your stay. There is another cottage on site i.e. Capel Pennant but there's never likely to be more than six people about in total so you can be assured of a very quiet and restful stay.

Other things to note

There are three friendly dogs at Pennant, free range hens, ducks and geese in the orchard and around the farmstead, and mares and foals in the surrounding fields.

We have changeover days on a Monday and Friday and offer full week 7 night breaks commencing on either day; 3 night weekend breaks arriving on Friday afternoon and leaving on Monday morning; and 4 night weekday breaks arriving on Monday afternoon and leaving on Friday morning. We are limited to these two changeover days as our housekeeper Sandra is only available on a Monday and Friday. Let us know though if you are seeking something different and we can see if it's possible.

Perfectly put together on its tiny scale. Great to get away from it all, through windy roads in its beautiful setting. Would recommend to others. Follow the directions on Air BnB app to find it easily. Warm welcome from Derek who made us feel free to come and go as we please. The property has so much character, and has everything you need. Many thanks!

Everything we needed was there for a week exploring the area. Absolutely enjoyed the experience. Only downside we found was having to drive more than we had anticipated, but we were there primarily for the Music Festival....

If you are looking for a cute cottage in beautiful and peaceful grounds then this is it. Both hosts were so friendly and had left plenty of suggestions and advice in their welcome pack which came in handy as we found out about a wonderful waterfall this way which is well worth a visit. We also visited the aqueduct and Chirk Castle which are very close to the cottage and recommended. If venturing out to Llangollen, we would recommend the Corn Mill - such yummy food and service. We used the cottage as a good base to visit other places around the area including Erddig, Powis Castle, Penryhn Castle, Chester Zoo, Dinorwig Power Station and Holyhead. We were always glad to come back to such a lovely place after a long day of exploring. Would definitely come back so thank you so much!!

Popty pennant is placed in idyllic hills in Wales. We did not have a car and got around by foot in surrounding hills on quit roads or wooden paths. Guests travelling here without car shouldn't worry. Chirk station is closed and hosts happy to give a ride. We walked most places, seeing local sights such as Chirk Castle, castell Dinas Bran and the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct. Any person loving hiking would love the sights of these locations with cosy walks a long the canal or more demanding going up and down hill in the welsh countyside. The best thing was to get home to the fire and the comfiest bed ever after long days exploring the surroundings of Popty Pennant. We wanted to keep this gem a secret, but everyone should consider rhis place a visit since it is the perfect location for a quiet escape of stressful lives. Definitely would recommend and we would be happy to visit this place over and over again!
