About Pentrehobyn Hall

Pentrehobyn Hall is a Grade One-listed Jacobean Manor dating from 1540 just inside North Wales in Flintshire, near Chester. The Pentrehobyn Estate is approached via a long tree-lined drive and is set among 100 acres of lush parkland. Rich in history, the private country house dates back to medieval times, and is still owned by direct descendants of the original owners, the Lloyd family. The grand yet intimate family home can accommodate up to 14 guests, and can be rented exclusively for any occasion, including celebrations, family gatherings, and corporate retreats. The house features an oak-paneled central hall, a large drawing room, and a dining room with open fires, perfect for relaxing or entertaining.

Our history

The Welsh Rip Van Winkle

The Lloyds of Pentrehobyn are descended from Hywel ap Edwin who was elected Prince of Wales in 1096. Inside the house, there are two sets of early 17th-century carvings above the dining room and central hall fireplaces, which commemorate the successful attack by the Prince of Wales against the army of Randolph, Earl of Chester. Three Englishmen’s heads were presented to the Prince of Wales who, in turn, granted these as the Lloyd ancestor’s coat of arms.
