  • "A wonderful place to stay!"

    The house was a delight and so beautifully warm. We’ll definitely be back. The linen, fixtures and fittings were of very high quality. Just one tiny gripe - we “oldies” could have done with some hand rails on the steps down into the bathrooms. A washing-up bowl for the sink would have been good. Unfortunately we didn’t have a chance to use the hot tub.

  • "Had a loverly time at this property."

    It was as advertised and well maintained. We found the main bedroom mattress a bit uncomfortable but all the other rooms were fine. And the 9am departure a bit of a rush in the morning. Most places I've stayed have been 10am. But this is stated in the booking . But all in all a cracking place to stay.

    Thank you for your feedback. I’m glad you enjoyed your stay with us at Penuwch Fach. I’m sorry that you found the bed uncomfortable, We had new mattresses on order but unfortunately they have arrived after your stay. We appreciate that the 9am check out is early this was put in place during Covid however as things are getting back to normal we will be returning to our 10 am check out as of next month. I sincerely hope that you will come and visit us again. Property Owner

  • "Had a wonderful stay at Penuwch Fach which is in a lovely rural and quiet location!"

    It had beautiful valley views from the back garden and a great hot tub/spa in the front which was always checked every morning and the property itself was really clean. Short drives of around 5 to 15 minutes from key locations like Aberystywth and Devils Bridge. My only small recommendation would be nice to have some clothes hooks in the bathrooms but that is only a minor improvement. Owners had great communication and always happy to help. Couldnt recommend it enough, excellent place to stay!

  • "Penuwch Fach is an ideal family holiday retreat."

    The accommodation is first class, spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped with everything you could possibly need. Fixtures and furnishings are of a very high standard. We are a family covering 3 generations and we all loved the holiday, the hot tub went down a treat either at the start or end of very busy days. The farmhouse is in a beautiful rural location and whilst remote it is very well situated for visits to Aberystwyth, Devils Bridge, Mwnt Beach, New Quay and Cardigan, to be able to visit such beautiful countryside as well as quaint seaside resorts is an added bonus. The owners are to be congratulated and thanked for keeping this property to such a high standard. We would love to come back in the future

The property

Aberystwyth 6.5 miles.

A striking, traditional, semi-detached Welsh farmhouse, situated on a working livestock farm, close to the popular seaside university town of Aberystwyth.

A perfect base for families or groups of friends looking to enjoy the beautiful surrounding countryside, yet being close to a popular town and the beautiful sandy beaches of Cardigan Bay.

Set over two floors, there are four comfortable bedrooms, on a split level first floor, with the twin bedroom on the other side of the staircase, two with steps to en-suite showers and a family bathroom.

There is a well-equipped kitchen, with everything you need to make the most of the dining area.

There are two sitting rooms, one with an open fire and the other with a woodburner, offering the chance to sit and enjoy the ambience of this charming farmhouse.

Outside, you can sit in the enclosed patio garden and enjoy a relaxing cup of tea whilst planning your day’s adventures.

The town of Aberystwyth with the sweep of the Edwardian promenade and pier, is a perfect venue to be mesmerised by the murmurations of the resident starlings.

Alternatively, why not take a ride on the funicular railway to marvel at the Camera Obscura?

You are ideally placed to explore the wonderful coastline of Cardigan Bay from the town with various sandy beaches stretching in both directions with New Quay to the South and Borth to the North.

The area offers numerous outdoor activities such as dolphin and wildlife spotting boat trips, river and sea fishing.

Perhaps catch a glimpse of the submerged forest at Borth, or enjoy a trip on the Vale of Rheidol Railway to the mystical gorge and waterfalls of Devils Bridge.

Slightly further afield, to the north, you will find the pretty vibrant market town on Machynlleth, with the local Ynys Hir Nature Reserve and the start of the Snowdonia National Park.

To the south is the harbour town of Aberaeron, with its pretty multi-coloured terraced houses.

In the Aberaeron area there are numerous National Trust properties including the long stretch of the sandy beach at Penbryn, and the working farm and John Nash designed property at Llanerchaeron.

A perfect opportunity to enjoy a traditional Welsh farmhouse, surrounded by undulating countryside and ideal for families and friends looking both for a peaceful setting, close to evening entertainment and a diverse landscape.

About the location


Borth 7 miles; Aberaeron 16 miles.

The ancient market town of Aberystwyth, can be found settled on the west coast of Wales. With its name meaning 'the mouth of the river Ystwyth' and set on the west coast of Wales, it offers an abundance of beautiful waters, perfect for watersports or a simple stroll along the Victorian promenade on a summer's day. The town offers a wide variety of shops, restaurants, pubs, tea rooms, museums, cinema, and the National Library of Wales, providing something for every taste. The scenic 20-mile cycle route and footpath on the Ystwyth Trail, linking Aberystwyth to Tregaron, follows a wonderful woodland and river. A trip on the steam railway from Aberystwyth to Devil's Bridge is a great way to visit the falls. The seaside resort of Borth is just 7 miles away, with its 3 miles of sandy beach and an Animalarium to keep all ages amused. With the ruins of Aberystwyth Castle close by, welsh craft centers and stunning countryside to explore, this is a perfect base for a well-deserved break
