About Penbryn Cottage

You’ll find this little bolthole adjoining Llanborth Farmhouse on the Ceredigion coastline in West Wales, 400metres up from one of the area’s best kept secrets - Penbryn beach.

Opposite a working farm, cosy Penbryn Cottage is set right on the all-Wales coast path, a brilliant spot for a break if you love exploring quiet coves, tramping over rocky cliffs, meandering along sandy beaches and simply taking in those mesmerising turquoise waters where you can often see bottlenose dolphins playing in the bay.

Escape from the bustle of everyday life and head for a holiday in the tiny hamlet of Penbryn, just up from the pretty beach of the same name. This dog-friendly Victorian farmhouse annex has bags of charm and a coastal theme to the interior decor that perfectly matches the laid back feel of this part of Wales. With a woodburner in the open plan living room and kitchen downstairs, upstairs you’ll find the bedroom and ensuite bathroom, making Penbryn perfect for couples. Outside, you’ll have a reserved spot in the car park for your car, a small patio with seating for a welcome spot of al-fresco dining in the Welsh sunshine.

From the cottage, head down the lane to the beach or take the scenic route through the woods (which is dog friendly October - March). This area is all about the coast though, so whether you’re walking, relaxing on a beach or looking for some adrenaline-fuelled water activities you’ll be spoilt for choice. For nearby sand-between-your-toes based beach encounters, try surfer’s favourite Llangrannog; sandy, sheltered Mwnt or the wide open Poppit Sands, popular for activity-lovers.

There’s plenty to explore along the coastline in both directions from the cottage, if you head south into the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park to places like the pretty cathedral city of St Davids, coastal village of Solva, or Abereiddy with its Blue Lagoon (all about an hour away by car). Or adventure northwards towards the vibrant ancient market town of Aberystwyth, or a little further to the sand dunes of nearby Ynyslas (also a National Nature Reserve). Break up the journey by stopping halfway at the self-sufficient National Trust Llanerchaeron estate, with its Georgian villa, walled gardens, farm and lake.

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level. The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities – details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied with a few exceptions, which are again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
