The Penmaenuchaf Homepage

At the end of the 19th century Penmaenuchaf near Dolgellau was the country estate of the Leigh Taylor family which made their money during the industrial revolution in cotton manufacturing, operating mills in Bolton, Lancashire. According to the census, in 1901 Penmaenuchaf had fourteen staff working in the hall and on the estate, including servants, gardeners and a coachman.

Now the country house is the luxurious Penmaenuchaf Hall Hotel run by hoteliers Mark Watson and Lorraine Fielding after they bought the property from my grandparents Gavin Miller and wife Rite in 1989.

Just three miles from Dolgellau, hidden in the hills above the village of Penmaenpool, Penmaenucha is in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park to the north of Cader Idris and overlooking the Mawddach Estuary.

Penmaenuchaf is also the location of Rita and Gavin Miller's memorial.
