Pen y Dyffryn - a retreat and a hotel.

I was invited to a lunch party in the Pen-y-Dyffryn Hotel on 2nd July and found it to be an oasis of calm and a great place to relax amidst beautiful border scenery. This former Georgian Rectory is 100 yards from the Welsh border. It has 5 acres of grounds and no passing traffic.

A great place to explore Offa’s Dyke-but make sure you don’t miss any of the meals!

The standard of cuisine was first class.

The country in this border region is pasture and woodland-and well watered at that! By no means flat. 


  1. I seem to remember this place is near some limestone so you can go fossil hunting while you're there.

  2. Did you get a tour of the hotel? What are the rooms like?

    1. Just checked out the menu on their website, it looks fab, you can check the rooms on there too.

  3. fantastic post and Thanks for sharing this info. It's very helpful.
