This is the translation of the Welsh message carved in the oak beam above the fireplace that greets you in the reception hall at Plas Penucha, Caerwys.
This unique farmhouse has been in the family of the owner since it was built over four hundred years ago during the reign of Elizabeth I. Indeed, there was a house on this site even before that time. Over the centuries it has been substantially altered and improved, but the improvements have never detracted from the beauty of the house, and whilst there is every modern convenience for the visitor, as soon as you pass over the threshold you are wafted back many centuries.
The house is situated within 2½ acres of garden which have a natural beauty throughout the seasons of the year and beyond them is surrounding farmland which, in turn, looks out towards the Clwydian Hills. The grounds contain a large rock garden and many species of rhododendron.
Plas Penucha is situated two miles from Caerwys, the smallest town in the country and the birthplace of the National Eisteddfod of Wales and six miles from Saint Asaph, with the smallest medieval Cathedral in the country.
It is an extremely convenient position for touring North Wales - to the east are the cities of Chester and Liverpool together with the Wirral Peninsula while in the opposite direction the whole of the North Wales coast, the Snowdonia National Park, Anglesey, Llangollen and the Vale of Clwyd are all within easy reach.
