Penrhos Polish Village

Situated in 20 acres of beautiful grounds, Penrhos Polish Village is a great place to live for people aged over 55.

Residents love the real sense of community that exists at Penrhos. It offers communal lounges and dining area and church, together with a wonderful history and heritage – Penrhos Polish Village started as a former air base in 1949 for Polish airmen, soldiers and sailors who established a Polish-speaking community.

Here, you can live the lifestyle you love, living as independently as possible and with opportunities to socialise with your neighbours and take part in events, all safe in the knowledge that support and advice is available right on your doorstep.

We have been spending time talking with residents and others to learn more about the history of the site and the stories of the families that have called it home over the years. The short film above captures the importance of the friendships and the sense of community felt at the village.

If you are 55 years or over and from the Polish community or live within the local area and would like more information, please contact Michal on: 01758 262000 or email:

Redevelopment of Penrhos Polish Village 

ClwydAlyn believes that everyone should have access to a good home that they can heat properly, afford the food they need to stay healthy, and live in a community where they can achieve their aspirations. We want to make this a reality for residents living at Penrhos Polish Village and meet the needs of the people of Gwynedd.

We have been working closely with staff and residents to help us understand the needs of residents and the wider community so that we can shape future care and support services and develop high quality new homes that will preserve Polish and Welsh heritage.

We will:

  • Replace all existing accommodation on the site, over a period of 3-5 years, which will be completed in 3 phases; minimising disruption to existing residents and meeting the housing need of the local community.
  • Put residents at the heart of everything we do and develop ‘Lifetime Homes’, enabling residents to live independently for as long as possible. They will be designed so that they are adaptable and responsive to the changing needs of the residents; accommodating a range of housing requirements, from individuals and families to supported living homes for people with learning disabilities.
  • New homes will meet and exceed the current regulatory standards.
  • Create a new, energy efficient, sustainable village, with all homes meeting an EPC ‘A’ rating enabling low-cost energy bills for residents.
  • Bring to life the history of the site in the new development in line with the Beautiful Homes and Spaces Welsh Government Standards whilst supporting the Placemaking Wales Charter. Safeguarding the church as the community hub and enhancing walled memorial garden.
