mansion with chapel for sale
Penally Abbey, Penally, Tenby, Pembrokeshire, SA70 7PY
Guide Price £1,500,000

Mansion House With Chapel In Wales
Built on the site of an ancient monastery, believed to date to the 5th century, Penally Abbey is a beautiful limestone mansion boasting 12 bedrooms, an indoor swimming pool and plenty of reception rooms.

It is set in five acres of gardens and woodlands and has its own Holy Well and medieval ruined chapel (St Deiniol's) in the garden (a picture of St Deiniol's chapel, by the artist Charles Norris, hangs in The Library in Cardiff).

Standing in an elevated position it enjoys magnificent views over Tenby Golf Course, Caldey Island and across the bay towards the Gower Peninsular and stands adjacent to the 12th century Norman church.

Once owned by the Irish whiskey family, Jameson's, it became a country club in the 1950's until the present owners bought it in 1985 which allowed their children to enjoy a magical, idyllic Enid Blyton childhood. When the kids flew the nest, it became a small country house hotel, and has been running as such ever since.
