Pelham Hall is located in Penallt village by the Cricket and Tennis Club, whose grounds provide a charming backdrop.  On entering the Pelham Hall, the visitor is greeted by an attractive foyer and staircase to the upper floor. The foyer is large enough for any duty such as ticket inspection or a welcoming ceremony. Double doors lead from the foyer directly into the main hall.

The main hall itself is large enough for meetings with an audience of up to 210; it can also host comprehensive exhibitions, dances, social events or sporting activities such as Football, Exercise Classes, Short Mat Bowls or Gymnastics. It is equipped with excellent lighting, it has good acoustics and there is a demountable stage. The 'sprung' beech floor is suitable for most activities. 120 comfortable chairs are available for use in the hall. Dining tables are available too and up to 100 - 120 can be seated for this purpose.

There is a well-equipped kitchen adjoining the main hall, which has a serving hatch. The kitchen is equipped with a commercial dishwasher and underwent a major upgrade and extension in 2017.

Also on the ground floor are toilets and both ladies' and gentlemen's changing rooms, all equipped with showers.

The upper floor can be easily reached, either by the stairs from the foyer or, on the level, from the balcony on the other side of the building. This arrangement allows easy access to either floor by wheelchair or by the disabled.

The first floor contains an excellent lounge / bar area with views through the big windows looking over the cricket ground and the surrounding countryside. Although it is largely carpeted, there is a small dance floor also.

The lounge has easy chairs and occasional tables; new lighting can provide atmospheric or disco lights! A well equipped and fully-licensed bar (includes a recently upgraded glass washer) forms one end of the lounge. For dinners, meetings or lectures, the lounge can seat up to 80 in comfort. There is a high definition data projector and pull down screen (terrestrial TV is available via Freesat too); these are available by agreement and negotiation.

There is a smaller meeting or committee room, which will hold an audience of up to about 40 in comfort.

Also on this floor is another kitchen where food can be prepared and served for those attending events in the lounge. It has recently been upgraded and now contains a commercial dishwasher.

Finally, car parking spaces are available at the front of the building.

This completes the range of facilities that are available to meet the requirements of almost any type and size of event. The Tennis Club room is not available for hire.

In total, Pelham Hall makes a delightful and enjoyable venue for the widest range of functions, whether social, business or sporting in the most delightful setting.
