The property

Welcome to Penywhelp House, a charming two-bedroom property situated in St Dogmaels, Pembrokeshire.

St Dogmaels is a lovely village on the banks of the River Teifi just over a mile from Poppit Sands, a beautiful beach that is family and dog friendly.

With views overlooking the River Teifi, Penywhelp House is packed full of traditional features including beamed ceilings, sash windows and an old bread oven; complementing this are more contemporary features including a Smart TV, Bluetooth speaker, sleek bathroom, woodburning stove and well-equipped kitchen.

Settle in for a snug evening in the sitting room in front of the wood burning stove, before savouring home cooked meals together in the traditionally styled dining room as you recount the day’s adventures.

Rest and relax in the spacious double bedrooms, before awakening to relish the sunshine on your private patio.

Our family have been enjoying Penywhelp House since 1911 and it provides the perfect countryside escape for four guests and two well behaved dogs; we hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Within St Dogmaels, there is an array of amenities; just paces from Penywhelp House is The Ferry Inn offering delicious meals and tipples.

In the centre of the village is the Premier convenience store for essentials and Glebelands Market Garden on the road to Cardigan provides excellent local produce.

In the village you can also visit St Dogmaels Abbey and a working water mill, Y Felin.

Don’t miss the local market on Tuesday mornings by the Abbey and enjoy a coffee at The Coach House Visitor Centre!

Just over a mile away is Poppit Sands, perfect for a family day out or walking the dogs, where you can also visit The Crwst Café, which offers wonderful ice cream, doughnuts, and coffee.

A short journey away, is the neighbouring Cardigan town offering a wide range of food, drink, and shopping experiences, along with access to the coastal paths, which provide spectacular views and are perfect for avid hikers.

Visit Llech y Drybedd, a Neolithic cromlech near Moylgrove, set in nature filled scenery, along with Ffynone Waterfall, a beauty spot, set rurally for peace and quiet.

Castell Henllys Iron Age Village, situated in thirty acres of woodlands, is a fitting escape for a family picnic and a relaxing afternoon.

And there is so much more to explore in this idyllic part of Wales!

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location


Cardigan 1 mile.

St Dogmaels is an ancient and tranquil village nestling peacefully around its ruined abbey at the mouth of the River Teifi on the totally unspoiled west Wales coast. One of its attractions is Y Felin, one of only two working watermills in Wales and retains the machinery installed in 1820. It is thought the mill was originally built by the monks of St Dogmaels' 12th century Abbey. The miller shows how the mill works and bread, flour and cakes can be purchased from the mill or you can enjoy tea and cakes and light lunches in the Coach House Café nearby. An award winning local produce market is held here every Tuesday and is well worth a visit. The village has a pub, a fish & chip shop, a Post Office, a cafe and a small museum at the abbey. There is also a pretty green and a millpond with ducks. Cardigan, a delightful ancient market town, is just over a mile away. This ancient town sits on the estuary of the River Teifi at the base of Cardigan Bay. Its unspoilt townscape and rich heritage provide a nostalgic backdrop to a thriving culture of arts and crafts, events and music festivals. Nearby is the wonderful Poppit Sands where you can relax on sunny days or enjoy invigorating walks in the cooler months, as well as exploring the beautiful Pembrokeshire Coast Path. St Dogmaels is the start or finish of the 186 mile Pembrokeshire Coast Path from St Dogmaels to Amroth. Visit Castell Henllys, the Iron Age Fort where everyone is encouraged to learn the ancient way of living, or visit the wonderful Shire Horse Farm to see how farming was before tractors. The Cardigan Bay dolphins can be seen off the bay on a regular basis and more active pursuits can be found at Cardigan Bay Active, including surfing, wildlife trips or coasteering. With scenic coastal, riverside and countryside walks and an array of other beaches and attractions all close by, this is a perfect holiday location all year round.
