Penarth Fawr Medieval Hall
“… that we have become as one, deep rooted in the soil of Life and tangled in the sweet growth.” Tolkien. Concealed within the village of Chwilog, on the historic Llyn Peninsula, is one of Wales’ precious jewels; Penarth Fawr Medieval Hall. Built circa 1415, you can feel the past and the present touch fingertips, in this remarkably inspiring stone construction, which has witnessed the passing of so much time. Rare, and extremely well preserved, this fascinating property allows us a small glimpse into the looking glass of the Welsh gentry during the 15th Century. An elaborate internal truss system is the most striking feature, and right at the heart of the house, is the large Hall which makes a perfect setting for weddings. A soft golden glow from the stone fireplace casts romantic shadows across the high timbered ceiling, as couples exchange their vows.
