Rhydycroesau, Oswestry, Shropshire, SY10 7JD
In a quiet valley on the Shropshire/Welsh border, Pen-y-Dyffryn enjoys a glorious hillside setting - the grounds run down to a stream that marks the border with Wales. Guests return here, again and again, seduced by the laid-back atmosphere.
What makes a stay at Pen-y-Dyffryn Country Hotel unique?
Personal service, local staff with local knowledge, a walking folder with free guided walks, and relaxation. After walking the hills guests can be found lounging in the garden in summer or taking drinks in the circular summerhouse. A great place to idle!
What are the rooms and facilities on offer at Pen-y-Dyffryn Country Hotel?
Restful interiors suit the mood: lots of comfy chairs and plump sofas, an open fire in the quirky bar. Food is prime – inventive, seasonal, and a daily changing menu. Bedrooms almost all have great views, some have double-jacuzzis, and four have private patios and are dog-friendly.
What can guests enjoy when staying in the Oswestry area?
Offa’s Dyke, Powis Castle, Chirk Castle, Attingham Hall and Erdigg House are close, as are Chester, Shrewsbury and the quirky little town of Oswestry. Ellesmere is Shropshire's lake district, and the local canal system provided great walking on the flat. Snowdonia is an hour away,
Where can guests enjoy food and drink?
Meals are taken in the south facing restaurant, and occasionally outside on the terrace. The bar is replete, and the wine list has over 70 bins. The restaurant has had 2 AA rosettes for over 20 years, the longest in Shropshire.
Pen-y-Dyffryn Country Hotel is part of the following Inspirations:
"When was the last time you heard no passing traffic at all? Pen-y-Dyffryn country house hotel sits amidst five acres of silent waving blooms, its silver-stone edifice offering up a winter retreat to make the bad weather worth it. The hotel is a former Georgian rectory and its hillside position close to the Welsh border near Shrewsbury makes for perfect strolling in any conditions (there are some great hill-walks in this area). Anything but pretentious, staff treat you like respected old friends when you bowl back in after a brisk game of golf, a bout of boutique shopping in Oswestry or a browse around the extraordinary Powis Castle. If spa’s your bag, they also lay on a range of treatments. Treat yourself to the hotel’s current Autumn Wallet Warmer until December 22 which offers 20% off when you book two or more nights’ dinner, bed and breakfast. You’ll also get a tenner off drinks, wine or a spa treatment."
"You really can’t get closer to the Welsh border than this old Georgian rectory down a well-hedged lane west of Oswestry. There are only 12 rooms, four of them in converted outhouses. Walks in the area include the lovely Racecourse Wood. This is very much a place for a romantic getaway, moreover the hotel has received an embarrassment of awards for its food."
