about the property

One of the few Welsh holiday cottages by NT Penbryn beach, looking down to the sea and Cardigan Bay…simply one of the best Ceredigion holiday cottages and amazing value for a family summer beach holiday.

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. A couple of fields back you'll find a small smattering of traditional properties, but as the surrounding land is all owned by the National Trust there isn't a sense of 'coastal development'. 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.

The house was recently redecorated and the lovely garden is (as ever!) a work in progress, but really this one is more about the location than the interior 'wow'. The surrounding fields have plenty of wildflowers and wildlife, and 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.

customer reviews for Penbont

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.

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

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 ! :)

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.

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

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 :))

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

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.

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
