Penrhiw Priory, St Davids, now open

Penrhiw Priory

Nestled quietly in the St Davids Cathedral close is Penrhiw Priory. Newly restored to its former architectural glory by the Griffiths - Roch Founaton and operated to 5 star standards by the Retreats Group, Penrhiw Priory is now open to guests and corporate groups.

Penrhiw has a long history of peace, tranquillity and spirituality and amongst the12 acres of woodland, meadow and magnificent gardens these qualities remain in abundance. Splendidly secluded and yet only a 5 minute walk through the Valley to the Cathedral and a ten minute stroll to town, Penrhiw Priory is the perfect location for a visit to the ancient Cathedral city of St Davids.

The Grade 2* listed building is luxuriously comfortable, with 7 ensuite bedrooms, all with breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside. From the Master suite sit within the bay window and enjoy the view of the gardens and woods and enjoy the peal of the cathedral bells, or choose a bedroom on the north side of the house and delight in an uninterrupted sunset over Carn Llidi.

Surrounded by lawns and mature gardens, the Lounge and Drawing room, each large enough to seat all guests, enjoy sunshine and natural light from sunrise to sunset. Uniquely furnished with elegant bespoke furniture throughout, Penrhiw is the perfect corporate venue or holiday accommodation for large families and groups of friends.
Our House Manager and staff will greet you with a warm welcome, and provide a full and attentive housekeeping service whilst you are resident. Cooked breakfast with fresh local produce is served each morning. All dietary needs are catered for and for allergy sufferers; Penrhiw has been specially furnished with non-allergenic fabrics and fibres. This theme continues throughout the house, including hypo allergenic guest toiletries and cleaning products.

Create your own meals in the luxury kitchen to dine in and entertain or let one of our award winning chefs cook for you. Enjoy a formal dinner in the Dining Room; or cross the patio to the Coach House and enjoy a relaxed supper on the veranda whilst watching the sun sets over Carn Llidi.

With room for 12 guests in the main house in ensuite bedrooms and 2 guests in the Coach House, (also with ensuite facilities, with its own kitchen and lounge), there is ample space at Penrhiw to host a corporate group, or enjoy an intimate family get together whilst each guest is able to find a quiet spot within the house. The Library in particular enjoys the evening sunshine and is the perfect peaceful retreat at the end of a day.

At Penrhiw Priory you are in the heart of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and the dedicated local staff will help you make the most of your trip to what is described as one of the most beautiful coastal regions in the world. Enjoy an afternoon at Whitesands Beach, within 15 minutes walking distance of Penrhiw. Our guest shower room with hypo allergenic products and luxury towels and robes is the perfect place to wash the sand from between your toes.

If you are feeling energetic, try a game of badminton on the lawn, or take one of our bicycles and cycle the quiet lanes that surround Penrhiw. Perhaps a game of croquet after lunch with a glass of wine on the terrace is more your pace, but whatever your recreational desires are - walking the Coast Path, cycling, coasteering or surfing at one of the many Blue Flag beaches, Penrhiw is your perfect choice.
So if you are looking for a magnificent private venue, in a beautiful peaceful and serene setting then Penrhiw Priory is the mansion for you.
