Penally Abbey

Penally Abbey is located right at the heart of Penally, a small, well-kept village. The village boasts a train station, which makes accessibility a breeze.

Style and Character

Luxuriously electric, Penally Abbey is a charming spot. Having been built in the late 18th century, the hotel is an iconic building of historical importance, and its Strawberry Gothic style perhaps say it all. The hotel’s owner, Melanie Boissevin, is an avid interior designer, so it is little wonder that the hotel’s interior design is spectacular. Melanie purchased all of her hotel’s furniture from French markets and antique shops and chose Ball tones and soft Farrows for the walls, just to ensure every room looks and smells divine.

Food and Drink

The 10- and six-course menus found here are inspired by a passion for fermenting and foraging. You can expect both seasonal and local ingredients – of course with some pretty twists. If you are a beach walker, you could go for the simpler yet delicious market menu to fill your stomach.

The tables in dining room have been beautified to perfection, with handmade ceramics and wildflowers delicately placed on them. For a breakfast buffet, you could have anything from fresh fruits to butter croissants, wild Welsh honey, and granola. If you want, you can also opt for an à la carte menu, where you can enjoy American pancakes, and local eggs and sausages.


Penally Abbey has 11 rooms, which are all full of character. The top floor is home to rooms One and Two, which can easily be customized into a rambling suite for a family. If you are not coming with your family, then you can book any of the other rooms.
