In a stunning location in the Shropshire/Welsh hills, midway between Shrewsbury and Chester, this silver-stone rectory is now a stylish country house hotel. In five acres of grounds, with no passing traffic, Pen-y-Dyffryn combines unobtrusive hospitality with high standards of service, guaranteeing that "away from it all” feeling.

Some bedrooms in the main hotel have en-suite jacuzzis or spa baths. Those in The Coach-House have a Mediterranean style, each with a private patio, well suited to dog owners. There is also a ground floor room suitable for infirm guests with French windows opening onto the hotel terrace. In the cooler months log fires burn in the two lounges helping to create a cosy, “country house” atmosphere. A full range of massage and therapy treatments are available in the privacy of your room.

The star of the piece, however, is the hotel's peaceful, hillside setting. The National Trust properties of Powis Castle, Chirk Castle, Attingham and Erddig are all nearby, as is Wales’ highest waterfall, Lake Vyrnwy, Shrewsbury and Chester. Excellent hill walking. Pets welcome.

Good Hotel Guide “Country Hotel of the Year” since 2004. Awarded the Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013. The restaurant has held two AA Rosettes continuously since 1999.
