Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Penllyn Castle sits in a dominating position above woods and the River Thaw with far-reaching views over the Vale of Glamorgan to the Bristol Channel and Somerset Hills beyond.

Approached up a long drive, the Castle is, naturally, built of stone with a rendered brick front facade. Once one of the grandest houses in Wales, time has not been kind and it is in a tired condition. Internally there are fine reception rooms including the splendid drawing and dining rooms with ornate plasterwork, decorative carvings, panelled doors, shuttered sash windows and wooden floors. Further reception rooms and domestic offices are approached off various corridors with the original servants' bells. The recent kitchen has a solid fuel Aga.

The extensive rear of the property is in a poor condition, but incudes the impressive old kitchen with its meat hooks and the enormous boiler room behind. A semi-circular cantilevered staircase beneath a large roof light leads up to a galleried landing with the principal bedrooms off. These mirror the reception rooms downstairs with the two principal bedrooms, one formerly a library having stunning views out to the south. There are 4 more bedrooms and 3 bathrooms whilst to the rear 2 more bedrooms and a bathroom are in a state of disrepair.

Adjoining the Victorian house to the rear is the Courtyard that comprise of the unused cottage, coach houses, stables and a water tower. 200 metres to the south-west lies the walled kitchen garden and the gardener's cottage, Erw Wen.

The combination of gardens, woodland and park runs to about 72 acres and provides both privacy, enjoyment and firewood.
