  • "Had a great stay here."

    The positives far outweigh the negatives.The cottage is well equipped and cosy.Loved all the antiques. The only downside being, after a long day out would of been nice to have a decent shower or bath.This property provides neither.Shower goes from boiling hot to cold.And the bath I doubt me or the Mrs would fit in it.Haha.But it did the job and it got us wet and clean,eventually. Bathroom definitely needs updating.Or just a decent shower or a decent bath. The bed was rock hard as we're the pillows.I didn't mind so much as you get used to it.But we did swap the pillows from the other bed as they were a little softer. On the whole we had, like i said, a great holiday and we were very pleased with the cottage and the host.Thank you for the gifts. And checking in on us to see if we had arrived safely. Kind Regards Phil & Rachel.

    Hi Phil & Rachel, We are really pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay at Penfeidr Newydd and appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback with us both here and in our guestbook. It was lovely to meet you Rachel. We are currently in the process of fitting a brand new bathroom upstairs which is why there is only one bathroom in use now. We are hoping that it will be completed by the New Year. Sorry to hear that you had difficulty with the shower temperatures. We have had a brand new shower installed in the downstairs bathroom to ensure that there will be no more issues. We have also replaced the mattress and pillows .Apologies for this inconvenience, but had you let us know of these issues, we would have dealt with them immediately. Thanks for the feedback. Hope to welcome you back again soon. Every Best, John Property Owner

  • "Really beautiful location, with amazing views of the bay and direct access to the mountain."

    The cottage is quirky and comfortable,the stairs could be a bit tricky for some! Well equipped, the lane up is steep and narrow, I would definitely recommend it for a tranquil stay.

    Thankyou Carolyn for taking the time to leave us feedback. We are really happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at Penfeidr Newydd; it's lovely to hear. Part of the cottage's popularity & charm is that it is on a hillside directly beneath Carn Ingli, but the track is less steep than many of the council roads in the surrounding area & we have had no problems with heating fuel deliveries made by an oil tanker nor with many guests over that last twenty five years. Hope to welcome you back to Penfeidr Newydd soon. Every Best, John Property Owner

  • "Great week, fantastic cottage - brilliant location."

    Couldn't be better. The only one thing I would suggest is some darker blinds in the main bedroom, I was awake with the sun - but when in Wales with those views, I almost didn't mind! Very sad to leave, and was just building a rapport with the beautiful horses!!! Throughly good week.

    Thank you we really do appreciate you taking the time to leave us feedback, we are thrilled to hear you really enjoyed your stay at Penfeidr Newydd. Hope to welcome you back again soon. Take care, John. Property Owner

The property

Idyllically set high up above Newport, directly beneath the mythical Carningli is Penfeidr Newydd, a delightfully rustic, two-bedroom holiday home.

Perfect for a family, friends or couples and their canine companions, this traditional mountain cottage boats many original features and woodwork, plenty of character and stunning sea views.

Inside, find all you need for a self-catering stay in a peaceful, picture-perfect setting, starting off in the well-appointed kitchen, where the chef of your group can rustle up some dinner; there are two dining spaces, one in the kitchen and one in the living/dining room for gathering your family around to feast.

Then relax in the living room with woodburner or likewise, make use of the snug with open fire, to unwind while you catch up on the day’s adventures.

When sleep calls, freshen up in the ground floor bathroom before heading upstairs, where the character continues and find two bedrooms, a double and a family room, perfect for resting your head before another adventurous day out.

Be sure to make the most of the lawned garden, where you can admire the breathtaking sea views with your morning cup of tea in-hand or an evening glass of wine at sunset.

When you’re not gazing upon the magical views from the garden, why not head down to the town of Newport on a short 10 minute walk to a delightful selection of pubs, restaurants and shops to keep you fuelled on your days out.

Then continue down to the coast and spend a day at Newport Sands or the harbour at Parog and take advantage of your surrounds by beginning your walk along the Pembrokeshire Coast Path.

Next stop west is Fishguard, home to the legend of Welsh heroine Jemima Nicholas, whose trusted pitchfork kept Napoleon's men at bay during the Last Invasion of Mainland Britain in 1797.

Heading east, the historic market town of Cardigan, resting on the River Teifi is home to a castle that hosted the first Welsh Eisteddfod in 1176 and a wealth of independent shopping outlets.

Nearby Cilgerran meanwhile boasts its own castle, perched above the gorge below and is home to the Welsh Wildlife Centre, which is great day out for the nature lovers of the group.

Heading back to Newport, a visit to the Dyfed Shire Horse Farm in Eglwyswrw allows you to get up close to those majestic gentle giant and make sure to visit the picturesque 5500 year old Neolithic Burial Chamber at Pentre Ifan.

Penfeidr Newydd is wonderfully placed to step out of your front door onto Carningli Common, as well being able to access the north Pembrokeshire coast within minutes.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £125.
