This privately owned Grade I listed house has been home to the same family since it was first built in about 1666. In 1992 Gavin and Davina Hogg, with their two sons, moved in and opened up the house and grounds for the first time in its history.

Magnificent in its grounds and on the banks of the River Usk, Penpont lies in the middle of a 2000 acre working rural estate. The house is the centre piece of a remarkable group of buildings spanning various periods, including a church, Dower house, stables, workshops, a dovecote on stilts and a 19 century conservatory.

Around the house lies extensive grounds, sweeping lawns, the old Victorian rose and walled gardens, riverside and woodland walks and more recently constructed the Green Man Maze.

Time has stood still at Penpont for much of the last century. This has contributed greatly to the unspoilt charm and tranquility which characterise the house and grounds. However, over the last 20 years a challenging yet sympathetic restoration programme has been undertaken.

Penpont, thou wilderness of varied sweets,

Where nature from her comely handmaid Art

Borrows new luster, and in every part

The wond’ring eye some opening beauty meets

 

Happy who free from worldly strife and care

Within thy solitude may while away

The livelong stillness of a summers day

Breathing the fragrance of thy perfumed air

 

For in thy waters leaps the dappled trout,

And birds as conscious of their safety there

In countless numbers to thy groves repair’

Ringing their long-drawn notes of sweetness out.
