About Pencwm Farmhouse

Pencwm Farmhouse has your holiday in West Wales all wrapped up. This gorgeous house comfortably sleeps 12 people, yet its cosy, homely feel makes it great for smaller groups as well. Whether it is just you and a few friends for a relaxing break, or you want the perfect venue to gather your extended family to celebrate a special occasion, Pencwm Farmhouse offers 14-private acres of Welsh perfection. A log fire in the living room and Aga in the kitchen make Pencwm Farmhouse popular for cosy winter breaks, and the extensive grounds with woodland garden including a BBQ cabin extend the living and socialising space outside for the warmer months.

The farmhouse is at the end of a quiet road near the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, close to the borders of Ceredigion, Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire. It is a wonderfully rural spot, but although it feels remote, Pencwm is only an hour’s drive from Swansea and just five miles from Crymych where you can drive or cycle to pick up your supplies. If you feel like walking to the pub for a pint, then you only have to go three miles to Llanglydwen or Blaenwaun.

There are endless opportunities for switching off and having fun in West Wales. The coastline is spectacular with world-class beaches that rarely feel crowded even in the height of summer. Poppit Sands is the closest, around 14 miles away near Cardigan, but you could also set up your parasol at Mwnt, Newport Sands, Aberporth, Penbryn, or Tresaith beach where there is a waterfall and a pub with a view.

Whether you explore the region on foot, from the saddle, or on horseback, there are miles of footpaths, cycling trails and bridleways to explore, including in the nearby Preseli Hills. One of the shortest and most rewarding paths is to Foel Eryr, where you have 360-degree views that, on a clear day, stretch as far as Ireland and Snowdonia. The Golden Road stretches for eight miles and is believed to be the route taken by Neolithic travellers who made their way from Ireland to Wales 5,500 years ago. It is also said that stones from quarries in this area made their way to Stonehenge. The Pembrokeshire Coast Path reaches the entire way from Cardigan in the north to Amroth Castle, 186 miles away, and there are a wealth of other routes to suit all abilities whether you want a full day out or a short, scenic stroll.

The Welsh language and culture are celebrated widely around the region. From Britain’s smallest capital city, St David’s, to the market towns of Cardigan and Carmarthen with their dominating castles, and the widespread community of artisans and food producers who use the light and landscape to create magic, it has a unique flavour that is unlike anywhere else in Britain. Pencwm Farmhouse is the sort of place you can envisage visiting year after year, creating wonderful family memories that will last for generations.

Accommodation Comprises:

Accommodation at Pencwm Farmhouse is spread over two levels. The owners have decorated it in a light, fresh style that is great for families with young children but which is also suitable for adults with contemporary touches like WiFi access and central heating.


  • The large living room is light and airy in warmer months, while the open fire and central heating keep it cosy and welcoming in autumn and winter. Squashy couches seat up to 12, and there are also bean bags for the kids. There is a television with DVD player and satellite channels, and the owners have also provided a selection of books and family-friendly games for relaxed screen-free fun.
  • The sunny, south facing conservatory leads off the living room, providing more space for relaxing. It has lovely garden views and is a nice place for a quiet cup of tea.
  • Country-style kitchen perfect for catering for larger parties. Several supermarkets deliver to the property, and the walk-in larder is spacious enough to store a week's worth of supplies. The oil fired AGA is ideal for slow cooking hearty stews and roast dinners with minimal effort, while the dishwasher makes light work of tidying up. The kitchen has a large, rectangular dining table that is big enough for everyone to eat together, even if you have a full house.
  • Comfortable twin bedroom with two full-sized single beds, bedside table with reading lamp, and a selection of books for guests to enjoy during their stay.
  • The cloakroom has a WC and handbasin.

Upstairs: All of the upstairs bedrooms have lovely views over the garden towards the Preseli Hills, as well as bedside tables and lamps. There are:

  • Two double bedrooms, one with space for a travel cot if required.
  • One triple room with a double bed on the base and a single bed above.
  • One bunk room with full-sized bunk beds.
  • One single room for a full-sized single bed.
  • Family bathroom shower above the bath, WC and hand basin.
  • A shower room has a shower, WC and handbasin.

Outside: The large, enclosed garden is safe for children and pets. The flat grassy area is good for playing football, and there is a swing set, badminton net, and paddling pool for the warmer months. A paved patio area has garden furniture, and there is a woodland cabin with barbecue that is safe to use in any weather.  Guests are free to wander through three acres of water meadows and eight acres of hay meadows. One of the many highlights of Pencwm Farmhouse are the beautiful woodland gardens the owners have created which attracts a wealth of birds and wildlife. There is also a native woodland area planted with ash, birch, oak, holly and rowan, among other species. For extra guests, there is space to hookup a towing caravan or set up a tent. The owner can arrange this for an additional nightly fee. There is ample space to park cars near the house.

Additional information: Short breaks are possible for most of the year, depending on availability. All utilities, linen and towels are provided (guests are asked to bring beach towels if required). Up to two well-behaved dogs are welcome with prior agreement from the owner. No smoking is allowed inside the farmhouse.
