In response to the pandemic we have repurposed our three-bedroom B&B to a two-bedroom self-catering apartment. You can rest assured that we have taken every precaution to keep you, future guests, and us, safe.
When you stay in Penmachno Hall you will be the only guests in the house, but the hall, stairs and landing are shared with the owners. The two-bedroom apartment features a lounge-diner with small separate kitchenette leading to the Yellow Room en-suite bedroom. The Blue Room en-suite bedroom is accessed via the shared landing. Prices start at £375 for a two-night stay, with discounts offered for longer stays.
An impressive rectory of granite and slate construction, Penmachno Hall has been sympathetically renovated to provide comfortable and spacious accommodation.
Since acquiring the Hall in 2002, Lauraine and Simon have undertaken a programme of extensive refurbishment, redecoration being planned with a keen eye for interior design but also in keeping with the building’s history.
The front door, with its original Victorian brass bell-pull, opens into the large entrance hall. The staircase leads to the first floor where the two-bedroomed apartment is located. The other rooms in the house are for the sole use of the owners.
The two en-suite bedrooms each include a flat screen TV and DVD player, CD clock radio alarm, hairdryer, iron, bathrobes, heated towel rail and dual voltage shaver point. All our bedlinen is non-allergenic. The rooms are not serviced unless required.
Meals are no longer available, and the property is no longer licenced, but a well-stocked Londis is located 300 yards from the Hall for essentials and our local pub, The Eagles, offers meals at weekends.
The landscaped garden, with large stone steps and random slate seating allows the visitor to enjoy quiet moments listening to the river and enjoying the views. A barbecue is available for the visitor to use and there is ample seating for 10 people. The espalier apple and pear trees, and the various berries from the fruit cage, provide the ingredients for the home-made jams and chutneys on sale in the hall.
The spacious lounge-diner has two leather tub chairs and a two-seater sofa with large windows affording views over the garden to the river. A dining table with four leather chairs is situated at the opposite end of the room. Hand-crafted Sheesham wood furniture includes a sideboard (containing a large selection of crockery and cutlery), coffee tables, dining table and TV console which house books, games, DVDs, CDs and tourism information. The 32″ smart TV has a sound bar with Bluetooth connectivity, FreeSat TV channels, an Xbox One and a selection of games, and Wifi is available throughout free of charge.
The separate kitchenette, with views over the Machno Valley, has a two-ring hob, combi microwave/grill/oven, small fridge with freezer compartment, dishwasher, slow cooker, coffee machine, kettle and toaster. Pans, roasting dishes, utensils, mixing bowls, chopping boards etc are all provided. A starter pack of dishwasher tablets and washing up liquid is included.
