A land of longing

Perched high above the Mawddach estuary at the foot of the rugged Cadair Idris, you’ll find our stone-fronted Penmaenuchaf.

Inspired by the dramatic ancient landscape of Snowdonia National Park, this grand old house has its own beautiful history, and each room has its own unique and characterful appeal.

Adventure abounds in this land of longing, rich in tales of Welsh myth and legend as fantastical as the scenery in front of you.


Retreat for the soul

Leave the everyday behind and join us for a relaxing getaway in extraordinary North Wales. You’ll be welcomed with warm smiles as you step into our country house, in this incredibly scenic and tranquil location, to experience our unbuttoned approach to exceptional hospitality.

Escape to our mountain hideaway to enjoy a true retreat for the soul.

Our adventure has begun

Owners Zoe and Neil Kedward purchased Penmaenuchaf Hotel in June 2022, growing their Seren family business and beginning a new story for this old house. We’re on a journey to continue to restore, rejuvenate and evolve every aspect at this beautiful house and we’d love for you to join us on this adventure.

Our bedroom, restaurant, bar and lounge spaces will all gently evolve over the years to come, and we’re looking forward to sharing those changes with you. You can rest assured that we’ll be retaining all the beautiful historic character of the property inside and out, whilst building on its sense of place in this remarkable Snowdonia mountain landscape.

Thank you for all your support and for welcoming us to Penmaenuchaf with such open arms.
