Cottage
Popty Pennant is an old bakehouse cottage on the Chirk Castle estate within the grounds of an historic upland manor house, sited in the glorious Ceiriog Valley on the Welsh borders in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Plas Pennant occupies an enviable position at the head of a secluded valley, 900 ft above sea level, offering complete quiet and solitude although only a short drive to Llangollen, Chirk and Oswestry. The old bakehouse has been meticulously restored by Cadw's Inspector of Historic Buildings for North Wales and fitted with rustic antique furniture and fixtures. The accommodation, with stone flagged floor and beam ceiling, includes a tiny sitting room, kitchen, shower room and crog loft double bedroom. The bakehouse has a cobbled courtyard with garden table and chairs ...Popty Pennant is an old bakehouse cottage on the Chirk Castle estate within the grounds of an historic upland manor house, sited in the glorious Ceiriog Valley on the Welsh borders in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

About the neighbourhood
Pennant is sited in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty within the Ceiriog Valley, a quiet backwater, a jewel in the crown of North Wales, a long meandering valley starting at the Chirk Castle estate and winding up through the villages of Pontfadog and Glyn Ceiriog up to the remote hamlet of Llanarmon Dyffryn Ceiriog with its wonderful coaching inns. The magical town of Llangollen with its steam heritage railway, the Ladies of Llangollen's home Plas Newydd, horse drawn canal boats and international music festival is only three miles from Pennant and walkable along an old drover's route. The Llangollen canal is part of the Froncysyllte Aquaduct World Heritage Site, again only a short distance from Pennant.
