About Penparc

Nestled on the edge of the Dinefwr Park Estate with a gorgeous garden overlooking the valley, pretty Penparc is a fabulous base for exploring the Welsh countryside

Originally built as two cottages between 1905 and 1911, distinctively-styled Penparc with its terracotta roof and snecked stone walls welcomes up to eight guests and two dogs. With easy access to the vast Dinefwr estate and deer park, it is perfect for large groups who want to explore the stunning countryside of West Wales. 

 

Through the gabled porch, you’ll find the first floor, with its lovely kitchen/dining room, and an inviting living room with a quarry tiled floor and mix of red-toned sofas (as well as a wonderful woodburner), is the perfect spot for relaxing after a day of exploring.  There’s also a shower room, utility room and a cosy reading room on this level too. Upstairs are the four bedrooms, two doubles with en-suite shower rooms (one does have slightly restricted headroom, so do watch your heads) and a further two twin bedrooms. There’s another bathroom upstairs too. Outside, you’ll discover spectacular views from the garden, looking across the valley as well as over Dinefwr’s vast grounds. A patio table and chairs gives you the opportunity to sit and enjoy a glass of wine in the sunshine as you take in the stunning parkland that surrounds the house.
 
Just off a little track, Penparc is a glorious bolthole away from it all in the west Wales countryside. When you stay, don’t miss the chance to explore Dinefwr, from the historic house and ruined castle to the wider estate and parkland, taking in the many footpaths that criss cross the 800 acres of countryside, checking out the medieval deer park, or rewarding yourself with a cuppa and a slice of cake in the cafe. Once you’ve had your fill of countryside walks, then head into nearby Llandeilo for some world-class shopping and eating. The colourful, picturesque town is an absolute pleasure, scattered with an array of small independent shops. There’s also a great selection of places to eat, from a quick snack to an à la carte meal.

Beyond little Llandeilo you’ll find the National Botanic Garden of Wales also on your doorstep at Llanarthne. The Welsh coast is close too with the towns of Carmarthen half an hour away by car and Laugharne (with its Dylan Thomas connections) around an hour from the cottage. Away from the coast, then if you head east then you’ll be on the western edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park, where you’ll find waterfalls and the mountainous peaks of Pen-y-Fan to explore.

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.
