about the property

Possibly the best value holiday cottage in Pembrokeshire…yet of character and standard many times higher than the competition. Great value Abercych family holiday cottage with great green credentials.

A traditional Pembrokeshire cottage that has a lovely, snug atmosphere. Only natural and sustainable limes, waxes, paints and oils have been used in the rescue of this formerly derelict cottage, making a happy home that has a happy atmosphere.

It sits on a roadside (but not a bad one, and with wide pavement), in Abercych village, about 300 yards up from the river and famous Nag's Head tavern (well-known for food). Walk down the hill for a quiet meal outside by the river, or to follow the woodland sculpture trail. Musicians and performers can hire the village hall at low cost if you wish to practice, and Stirling, the owner, can provide some alternative therapies in her cottage next door. 

A quick drive to bustling town Aberteifi (Cardigan) and the wonderful beaches of Cardigan Bay. Cenarth Falls is just down the road too!

Cosy little cottage, perfect for three close to the river and beach. Enjoyed the sea cliff climbs at the Blue Lagoon. Mynt, New Quay and Poppit Sands. Great treats at the Lime Crab & Blue Bell. Enormo...

customer reviews for Penrhiw

Cosy little cottage, perfect for three close to the river and beach. Enjoyed the sea cliff climbs at the Blue Lagoon. Mynt, New Quay and Poppit Sands. Great treats at the Lime Crab & Blue Bell. Enormous thanks to Steriling and her daughters for their kindness. My girls loved the playtime fun with the cats in the garden. Thank you !

We had a wonderfully relaxing weekend at this cosy cottage. Lovely owner, great interiors and a roaring fire....what more can you want? Oh, and the sun came out for us in February.

We loved staying at Pen-Rhiw cottage. There is so much to do in this beautiful part of West Wales. The cottage was very cosy and we had a lovely welcome from Sterling and her family.

Absolutely lovely little cottage, great location and perfect for our weekend escape. The cottage is beautiful, thoughtfully restored and so comfortable to stay in, with lots of thoughtful touches. Highly recommend The Nags Head for food. We were so lucky with the weather, sunshine all weekend. Very sad to leave! - Julia

Lovely little cottage in a really nice area. Lots of nice walks and places to explore; many different places to go. If you want a proper relaxing get away, this the place to go. Great pubs nearby too! - Pete

This cottage is a really cute place to stay. A lovely garden, very lovingly furnished, nice and friendly hosts ... so much to discover. We had wished the weather would have been more kind to us.

Pen-Rhiw is a charming cottage with a gorgeous garden to sit in and listen to the birds. It's perfectly located to explore all over Pembrokeshire. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Fantastically restful holiday. The cottage was cozy, sympathetically restored and well-appointed! It felt like Stirling and her family had thought of everything. This was a great Easter break and we're so glad we booked it.
