Penpont is a privately owned Grade 1 listed house which has been in the same family since 1666. Magnificent in its grounds, on the banks of the River Usk, it lies in the middle of a 2000 acre working rural estate.
There are extensive grounds, sweeping lawns, the old Victorian rose and walled gardens, riverside and woodland walks and a beech hedge 'Green Man Maze' planted in 2000. The family are very happy for people to wander and explore the grounds during their stay. Penpont is a unique place to spend a holiday or have a short break with a group of friends or family.
Buy fresh organic vegetables
The walled gardens have been registered with The Soil Association for over 5 years and guests can buy fresh organic vegetables direct from the gardens. Penpont has installed a renewable energy heat system powered by bio-mass. The wood chips are sourced from Penpont woodlands and the boiler heats the main house, Courtyard Wing and all outbuildings.
