about the property

Priced for up to 4 staying, sleeps 6. Priced for up to 4 staying, sleeps 6. This house is simple, but you're buying the rare location by Penbryn beach!

Penbryn beach is famous for being one of the few wide, sandy beaches in the UK to have not a single building on it. For this reason, it has been used in a few films, including providing tropical beach scenes for a James Bond movie. It is one of the longest stretches of unspoilt sand in Cardigan Bay, yet often one of the quietest. The National Trust own all the land around here, so we're lucky to have one of (or the?) closest private rentals to the sand. It'll take you ten minutes to walk down the well-maintained footpath to the sands from Penbont - a charming traditional stone cottage with 10 acres of private meadow and woodland.

A short walk up the lane you will find St. Michaels Church, one of the oldest churches in Wales - with lovely views across the valley and back to Penbont. This property wins more for 'location' than 'luxury', though several families love it enough to book it summer after summer.

customer reviews for Penbont

Penbont continues to delight us every time we stay, which is why we come back every year. It’s a little oasis of peace and quiet set in a gorgeous landscape and gardens. Even on the odd occasion when there is some traffic on the lane that runs past, it’s great fun watching people trying to get past each other! But it’s in the evenings when Penbont truly comes into its own; it’s so quiet all you can hear are the waves on Penbryn beach and the odd owl. The owner has made some changes since last year, including upgrading the hot water system and installing a very cool new bathroom. The logs supplied for the super-efficient log burner are now kiln dried, so you can relax on the two enormous sofas in front of a roaring fire. We can’t recommend Penbont highly enough and will be back next year. - Richard and Helen


Penbont is a comfortable cottage set in a glorious garden. It’s location is perfect for a week exploring the beaches and villages along this beautiful stretch of coastline. We went out each morning to somewhere new and then we’re able to sit on the beach at Penbryn in the afternoon. The cottage isn’t remote - there are other houses and a cafe nearby but it is extremely quiet and peaceful. It had everything we needed for a restful week. The cafe and the beach are walkable but we needed the car to go everywhere else.

- Kim L,

We love staying at Penbont. This was our second visit. It is a beautiful cottage, with a feeling of seclusion yet close to the sea. There were buzzards and red kites overhead. At this time of year the garden and flowers are wonderful, full of colour and scent. It's a peaceful place to rest and when ready to venture out there are wonderful walks along the lanes. The beach is very close and it took us about 8 minutes to walk there unless we were tempted by the cafe en route with its delicious home made frangipane. A happy time was had by all. Thank you.

- Deniz baker ,

A very welcoming cosy cottage. It made for a relaxing break. We enjoyed having our morning tea on the bench outside. The garden is a delight.

- Ruth moser ,

We arrived late at the cottage as we decided to put off travelling until one of the February storms had passed. It was lovely and warm and we were very thankful for the comfy beds. Next day unfortunately the power was off so we made good use of the wood burner and the solid fuel Rayburn. It took a while to get going but we were able to cook bacon and eggs so everyone was very happy. We spent the day walking the coast path and along the gorgeous beach. Great waves. The power was still not back on so we travelled into Cardigan to eat at a great pizza place. The cottage is beautifully done and we will definitely visit again. Thank you.

- Beth C,

We had a great week at Penbont. Great, great location. House had everything we needed and was very cosy.

- Sandra roberts ,

Wonderful stay at Penbont. So peaceful, clean and comfortable. Swam in the sea most days and the hill back from the beach warmed us up!. The garden and listening to the birds was bliss. We were sad to leave.

- Teresa B,

We had a gorgeous week at Penbont. The cottage was so cosy, the garden stunning, and the location amazing! We definitely hope to return.

- Jacqueline B,

Had a wonderful break at penbont , quaint cottage just what the doctor ordered . P.s. there is an electric car charging point in Penbryn beach car park 300 meters away.

- Ian S,

We had the most fantastic stay at Penbont. The location is perfect, a ten minute stroll to beautiful Penbryn beach and surrounded by peace and quiet in the countryside. We enjoyed walking the coastal path, fish and chips at Llangrannog and swimming at the wonderful Mwnt beach, The cottage is cozy and well-equipped. We loved the wood burner and made use of the BBQ! We will definitely be coming back.

- Jessica trahar ,

Such a lovely comfortable cosy cottage and perfectly placed near lots of beaches and the wonderful Plump Tart Cafe. Highlights included swimming at Aberporth, Pizzas at the Pizza Tipi in Cardigan, the sunsets on the beaches and watching the night sky - truly amazing in this part of the world.

- Mrs geraldine chew ,

Lovely cottage close enough for even our little ones to walk to the fantastic beach. Well equipped with everything we needed. Comfortable and cosy.

- Ann R,

From start to finish the whole experience was a positive one. Very clean House. Booking easy, check in & arrival easy, check out easy. Coastal path walks hard, leaving West Wales hard! Fantastic Location. Many very quiet coves, cliff top views some of the best. Nature. Wow. Dolphins, seals and birds. Visit. But not the third week in July as we want to ! :)

- Lee B,

We had a brilliant stay at Penbont. The house is lovely, and the walks to the beach are idyllic. Would definitely recommend the Plump Tart cafe - they weren't open when we stayed but we're more than willing to provide us with a take away birthday afternoon tea which was delightful.

- Kel R,

Yet another fantastic stay at this wonderful cottage in the most beautiful part of Wales!

- Helen H,

Penbont was the perfect place for our holiday, with everything we needed to be comfortable and relaxed. On the hottest day of the year we were content to stay put, finding cool spots all around the cottage and the beautiful garden. At night the sound of the sea lulled us to sleep and in the day the beach was only a stroll away. It was also a huge relief to find a house that is completely pet-free as two of us suffer allergies! Thankyou for a truly restful break :))

- Joanna S,

Wonderful cottage, witha beautiful garden and very well equipped for all your needs. We felt super relaxed, it was so quiet we had amazing sleep! The cottage is just a short walk to the most beautiful beach, with a delicious cafe on the way for a coffee and ice cream stop. We will definitely be back! x

- Rona M,

We love this location- it is our third stay- a short walk to a lovely sandy beach with caves and river- perfect for a day with kids. And in the evening you can sit on the garden seat and watch the sun set over the hill. The terraced garden is lovely with lots of room for hide and seek.

- Julia brooker ,

Excellent accommodation in a lovely areally with easy walking access to the wonderfully unspoilt beach if Penbryn The cottage garden is a delight and so peaceful.A marvellous retreat to unwind and enjoy the sounds of nature.

- Ian F,

This cottage provided a first-rate base in every respect - quiet, except for the welcome sound of birdsong - well equipped - perfect location for the beach and all other features of Ceredigion coast. We're already planning a return to Penbont! Michael Tavinor, Tim Bridges

- Michael tavinor ,

Lovely welcoming cottage great location.

- Julie F,

Lovely, well equipped cottage - and such a treat to be able to walk straight from the cottage to Penbryn beach or on to the coast path.

- Joanna shanmugalinga... ,

An excellent weekend away. Penbont is superb. Clean and contemporary furnishings within a cosy Welsh cottage. Penbryn beach a mere stroll away and Llangrannog and Mwnt not too far either. We will be back!

- Richard B,

We had a really lovely stay. It was the perfect location and we were very comfortable there.

- Sarah E,

This cottage truly is a gem - we had the most wonderful week there. The house is surprisingly spacious for a cottage, which made is really cosy. the furnishings and decoration are lovely, the kitchen well equipped, and the bedrooms very comfortable. We loved the location, the garden, and the vicinity of the Plymp Tart cafe. Worth mentioning that our toddler also had the best of times, and was very upset the we had to give up "our holiday house" after a week. We will be coming back.

- Milena B,

We had a fantastic week in this very well equipped and comfortable cottage. The location is amazing, being only 10 minutes walk from Penbryn beach. We did a couple of walks along the coastal path to Llangrannog and Tresaith and got the very handy coastal bus back. The sofas in the lounge are big and comfy. We lit the woodburner stove every evening, ( even though it was August! ). The garden is beautiful. We sat outside in the evening watching the sun go down and the bats flying around us. We felt so privileged, watching the visitors to Penbryn leaving in the evening, and we got to stay! We would love to come and stay here again. Thank you. The Roberts family.

- Stella R,

Penbont is such a beautiful cottage! It was the perfect setting for a really fab long weekend celebrating hubby's 40th birthday with the kids. Everything was super clean, and all utensils were thoughtfully provided. The location is stunning, with beach being so close. We got to the property very late on the Friday night and the owner had kindly arranged for the lights to be put on ready. We bundled the kids into bed and sat outside listening to the sea whilst bats flew around us. Magical. Thank you, we will be back soon!

- Bethan P,

Fabulous cottage in a wonderful location. Super comfortable beds and sofas and a very efficient wood-burner (can't say the same for the range, though, which chewed through logs like an Australian forest fire and didn't retain heat for very long!). The "local" pub is a fantastic coast path walk - however, cyclists be warned that the climb back from there is granny gear for a mile! All in all a really chilled break and we're already looking for dates to return.

- Richard hudson ,

We had such a fantastic long weekend at Penbont. The cottage itself is cosy and comfortable and the location is just stunning. We abandoned the car to play on the beach and walk the coastal path in both directions. The pop up pizza night at the cafe a few moments from our front door was a very welcome surprise - loads of fun and fabulous pizza. The kids had great fun hunting for Easter eggs around the pretty garden and playing Jenga by the fire.

- Julia R,

We enjoyed a truly relaxing week at Penbont. The house is comfortable and well equipped, with lovely gardens and in an exceptional location. The magnificent views from the coastal path are within a short walk, so is the beautiful beach at Penbryn. Lovely!

- Joanne B,

Beautiful location and we found the cottage very comfortable with character by the bucketful. A highlight was eating in the lovely garden while red kites soared overhead and two bluetits busily fed their brood in the outbuilding. Penbryn beach was a short stroll away and on a late return we saw hundreds of bats flying from their Llanborth roost, before darkness brought a spectacular starry night sky. We hope to return.

- Peter D,

Loved our time at Penbont. Such quietness, peace and tranquillity. House is well equipped and very tastefully furnished. Garden a delight for sitting out on an early summer evening. Nearby beach is splendid and coastal path very much worth the effort just to see so many wild flowers close to and dolphins down in the sea. Lots to see and do in the surrounding area and good places nearby to eat, drink and buy provisions. Great place to stay for nature, beauty and solitude.

- Gareth G,

Another wonderful stay at Penbont. The location and house itself are the best we've ever stayed in - which is why this was our 4th visit in 2 years! The beaches on this coast line are superb.

- Rebecca borman ,

The cottage was lovely, really well appointed and secluded, down a country lane, but close to the beach. We had a lovely time and I would certainly be happy to visit here again...great views of the stars, no light or noise pollution.

- Paul B,

Penbont ... A beautiful cottage, we all had a fab weekend, everything you could ever need and very clean and comfortable. Lovely garden. Stunning beach down the lane. Definately a favourite place ! Thankyou Morgans family

- Geraldine M,

Lovely 4 days, weather was fantastic, great walk to the beach, seals one day, dolphins another - if we had stayed longer who knows ! Very comfortable house, garden ... have to say it again but it was lovely - great place to sit , read & ponder

- Judy L,

We had such a lovely holiday at Penbont - the cottage is beautiful and is in a truly wonderful setting. We were blessed with better weather than expected and took full advantage. We spotted dolphins on a walk to nearby Llangrannog, and saw seals at Mwnt bay and every day we got to come home to this lovely cottage - all in all, a gorgeous week in Penbryn!

- Erica R,

A lovely, cosy cottage, tastefully decorated with nice quirky, personal touches. The garden is a beautiful bonus, private, tranquil and gloriously scented. We only left the garden to take a 10 minute stroll to the stunning Penbryn beach. A wonderful holiday.

- Glenn J,

This is our 3rd stay at beautiful Penbont and will certainly not be our last. This lovely cottage is situated in the most stunning part of West Wales, close to the glorious beach and lovely walks. The gardens at the cottage are lovely to sit out in, and so peaceful. Thank you to the owners of this cottage, it's a dream! You could never get bored with staying here. Can't wait to return. This is a truly special place and one of my most favourite places ever.

"Our first impression as we walked through the door was simply 'WOW'. We totally fell in love with Penbont the second we stepped inside. Everything we wanted was here - cosy, quaint, homely and so romantic" ~ Sofia from London


"This has been our fifth stay in the Cardigan area as a family, and this has been BY FAR the best accommodation! A truly relaxing, stress-free week, made all the better by the fact that we had such a lovely, comfortable cottage to come home to." ~ Cliff, Rachel and Kayleigh Lewis from Cambridge,


"We have spent four fantastic days in this beautiful little cottage. Went for many great walks and saw dolphins while we were on Penbryn lucky to have the sea just down the lane." ~ Dana and Joe Jacomb from Wiltshire
