My husband, Ken, and I have raised our children here at Penmerryl and really enjoy sharing this wonderful place with others. We love to meet and host new people from all walks of life and all parts of the globe. I cook for and take care of my guests just like my family. I am originally from St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada and Ken is from London, England. We spent 7 years living on a boat and sailing before coming ashore to raise our family.
And now that time has come to step back a little from Penmerryl and go back to the sea for a while, and we are so happy to introduce to you our new Co-host here at Penmerryl, Gammon Castellvi. Gammon is originally from Venezuela and so is fluent in Spanish. She is also a fabulous cook and will take excellent care of guests at breakfast! Another huge plus in having Gammon on board is that she is an accomplished Equestrienne, with years of horse experience and the ability to share her knowledge with guests.
This is a working horse farm. Enjoy the barns and visiting the horses. Our horses are competition horses and are frequently at shows. See how a horse farm operates! Horseback riding lessons can be arranged if an instructor is on site and is available. Most weekends we are competing!
