  • "I recently stayed at Pengwern with a group of friends and wow, what a place."

    The views from the front of the house are fantastic and their are more than enough amenities to keep everybody busy through the duration of our stay. In the lead up Caroline was very helpful with answering any questions I had and made us feel very welcome.

  • "We had a great week surrounded by wonderful views."

    The area had plenty of things to do from walking the hills (just outside the door) to white water rafting. The house had plenty of space so our extended family could spread its wings. The house felt like home and the owner was very helpful. Thank you

  • "The house was spotlessly clean and we received a very warm welcome from the owner, Caroline."

    In fact, Caroline had contacted us beforehand by email and was very helpful in pre-holiday planning and arranging. The location of the house is absolutely splendid and to sit on the front terrace admiring the view was a real delight...especially as the sun shone a great deal of the time we were away. We also greatly appreciated walks from the front door, the vast snooker table, the bar, the comfy beds, the well equipped kitchen and the glorious lounge with a woodburner set in a large inglenook fireplace. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Pengwern and are definitely now looking to find another opportunity to visit again.

  • "We have just returned from a week at Pengwern."

    The house far exceeded our expectations, both inside as well as outside with fantastic views! The Snooker room was perfect for evenings in, especially in these times, the pool table had just been refelted and also had plenty of use, there was so much to do the time flew. Had a lot of of meals alfresco due to the perfect weather we enjoyed. BBQ came in very useful and enjoyed a game or two of table tennis which had been recently fixed. Managed to walk to the waterfall, would describe walk as moderate to hard, some of us drove round and met the walkers there with a picnic. We have already booked to go back in December, fingers are crossed Caroline was very helpful with hints and advice, led us to a fantastic gourmet burger van on a picnic area above the lake.

  • "Booked Pengwern cottage in September to celebrate my mum's 60th birthday."

    We all had a fantastic time and absolutely loved the cottage and it's beautiful scenery. The amazing surroundings gave us plenty of scope for lovely walks in the daytime and the two games rooms provided us ample entertainment in the evenings. The owner Caroline lives in the neighbouring cottage and was always on hand to assist if we needed anything. Would highly recommend staying at Pengwern and look forward to returning in the future.

  • "Fantastic cottage nestled into the Welsh countryside which provided amazing views and an abundance of walks right from the doorstep."

    Caroline was a fantastic host, always on hand to answer any questions we may have had or to help with any requests. We were a party of 13 ranging from 18 months to 42 with their being 6 adults, 5 teenagers and 2 babies. The cottage provided enough space and facilities for us all to have a great time. The only slightly disappointing thing was that Caroline explained when we arrived that the pool table had been damaged by the previous family and as a result the felt was badly ripped in various places so was unusable. This didn't sit too well with the teenagers but thankfully the snooker table was on hand to make up for this. The cottage is huge and provides more than enough space for large groups. The bedrooms were great and everybody had their own space. The outdoor space was also great with plenty of room to sit out and enjoy the sun sets over the valley, play table tennis, use the rope swing or star gaze, which provides amazing views of the night sky. The cottage is conveniently placed for a number of activities. If you like mountain biking there is a downhill bike part literally just down the road/next to the cottage. Lots of great walks and runs direct from the door. Llyn Tegid (Bala Lake) provides a wide range of activities and water sports such as kayaking, paddle boarding etc and we had a great day here. Also about an hour away is a great beach at Barmouth. But equally you could easily spend a week in the cottage and not have to leave. There are small local shops in the two neighboring villages and bigger stores in Bala which is around 13 miles away. The village also has a couple of pubs which also serve food. All in all a fantastic week in a great cottage with a wonderful host. Would definitely recommend Pengwern cottage.

    Thank you very much for your detailed review, I'm sure it will help other guests, the Pool Table has now be recovered and is in perfect condition again. Property Owner

  • "Showers not working and Low water pressure, Very poor Internet connections."

    Pool table and table tennis table both broken.

    Our showers have been checked and are all working correctly and do have good water pressure. It may have been that two people flushed other toilets while you were in the main bathroom shower, this is the only shower that sometimes gets affected when this happens. Our pool table is working correctly, if the push in device to get the balls is pushed too hard then the balls can end up at the back of the table. I think this happened in your case. The table tennis table was in very good working order before your stay, the table net was broken off during your stay. We have now repaired this.Our internet/wifi is working without interruption and the best we have in this area. It is not fibre optic speed as yet but this is going to be implemented in the next 12 months. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was beautiful, everything you needed to keep people entertained from all ages."

    We ranged from 5 to 76 years of age and there was always something to do if the weather wasn't great. The views were amazing. As we had come after lockdown it was the perfect place for us to get away, be able to go on walks around Lake Vyrnwy without having to worry about having too many people around us. We stayed in our groups of 6 when out and about but found a perfect picnic area that had no-one around for us to chill and enjoy the lake. Caroline was really helpful and left some literature in the cottage about the history of Pengwern (which we loved) and the local attractions and amenities. Would love to go back and the kids didn't want to leave!xx

    We couldn't have wanted for anything that wasn't supplied. Plenty of logs for the fires, tea towells, toilet rolls, towells, etc etc. Facilities in the house kept us entertained despite a real wet and windy weekend. Spotlessly clean with plenty enough space for all 15 of us. All in all an excellent choice of venue.

  • "Caroline was extremely welcoming and friendly and her guidance of local walks and amenities was a really lovely touch."

    Although she lives just across the way we didn't see her at all during our stay. All of the rooms were comfortable and well kept, the snooker room is pretty incredible and the games room is well stocked. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need. But above all, the grounds are beautiful and the view from the house is stunning, I'd go back in a second.

    On a mountain looking over more mountains Caroline the host is really friendly and a genuine lovely person. There is far more in the house than expected with a kids games room full of books Lego musical instruments pool table Nintendo wii couches and more and an adults games room with snooker table darts music tv bar fridge couches and more Log fireplace in lounge with more than enough wood supplied Every room is immaculately clean and tidy.

Very easy drives to Lake Bala and Vyrnwy and not too far to the beach at Barmouth or Harlech, but to be honest, you could have great time just staying put and relaxing in Llangynog and the surrounding hills and valleys. We would love to stay here again and highly recommend the property.

    Great for weekends away with groups, great facilities with the pool and snooker rooms, board games and outdoor space. My only addition would be a hot tub, but that is in no way a criticism and understand why a property of heritage such as this would not have one. I could go on and on listing the positives this property maintains, however, you should stop just hovering over the 'book now' button; click it and see for yourself. Alex

  • "Stunning location, amazing house, fantastic facilities and a very friendly & approachable host :) Just got back from a fantastic week at Pengwern."

    We travelled as a party of 13 - (9 adults, 4 children) Pengwern is a fantastic home from home and Caroline (the owner) has made sure guests can enjoy & discover the house and the surrounding area with ease & comfort. The secure bike store, boot room & drying room ensure you can experience the great outdoors and all your clothing, footwear and equipment is safe, dry and accessible. The snooker room/bar area became a daily activity to look forward to after long days of exploring/walking and sight seeing and apart from going to the local put to watch the football on BT Sports we really wouldn't have had to leave the comfort of the house after our days out. It has everything you need. Great music collection (to suit all tastes, loads of DVD's to watch and a lovely patio area to sit out in to enjoy the sights & sounds of the stunning surroundings. The games room for the children has everything your children could wish for (their own space) being one of them - our children had hours of fun in there and it's a brilliant addition to a magnificent country home. There are detailed walks/bike rides in a folder in the house which were really useful and the owner has taken time & consideration in making these as informative as possible. The area itself is just stunning - lots of walks & bike rides from the house, sheep/lamps outside your front door and a wood and mini mountain to climb right on your doorstep, no need to take the car out (unless you run out of supplies) so as long as you plan ahead you really can escape the hustle & bustle of everyday life. We arranged for an online shop from Asda to deliver our shopping which was extremely useful as the nearest supermarket is in Oswestry which is quite a distance away from Pengwern. The kitchen/cooking facilities have everything you need and there is lots of space around the two tables to accommodate multiple guests at meal times. We will definitely be returning - we had the best time and from several houses we've stayed at previously - Pengwern ticked all the boxes :)

  • "It was a tough decision for all the family to decide which cottage we were to spend celebrating my 40th birthday celebration in."

    We had at least 10 great cottages to choose from which ticked all the boxes. I can honestly say we made the best decision, this cottage exceeded our expectations more than we could of imagined, 4 families all under one roof and everyone had their own preference on where to be, kids in the pool/games room adults in the snooker room sitting around the mini bar and some enjoying a quiet movie around the log burner in the lounge. Caroline was so very helpful, even weeks before we stayed at the cottage Caroline had given me heaps of information regarding biking trails in the area. Which literally started from the doorstep. The kids are crazy about wildlife, so for them to able to sit out on the tree swing amongst the sheep meant the were out there rain or shine in their element! I personally have never missed a place so much once being back home, really was a dream lifestyle come true! If I could do anything different next time, it would be to pack less clothes because we had no need to leave the cottage! All the families will be returning next year.

About the location

LLANGYNOG

Bala 13 miles.

The pleasant village of Llangynog lies in breathtaking countryside amidst the beautiful Berwyn Mountains and surrounding wooded hills and valleys. The area has a history of lead, silver and slate mining dating back to the 17th Century but today it is a renowned location for climbing, birdwatching, walking and cycling, with famous mountain bike trails near Dolgellau, and a mountain bike centre at Llandegla. Llangynog boasts two pubs, both of which serve good food and are perfect to relax in after an exciting day out, plus on the outskirts of the village is a down hill mountain bike centre. There is also an off road motorbike experience, which is set on a 1500 acre site further up the valley which needs to be booked in advance.
