Penlon description

Holiday home
Penlon is a beautifully restored miner's cottage, now Grade II listed, near the River Rheidol in Mid Wales, two miles from the village of Capel Bangor. The cottage has two bedrooms; a twin room and a room with bunk beds on the ground floor. There is also a shower room, a kitchen, a dining room and a sitting room with a woodburner and a sofa bed. Outside, the garden is lawned with furniture and across the road at the front of the cottage runs the River Rheidol, across which lies a paddock where sheep are occasionally kept. In a wonderful position for walking and cycling, and exploring this beautiful, diverse region, Penlon is a charming holiday base for friends and families alike.

The university town of Aberystwyth lies on the west coast of Wales and is a thriving metropolis of shops, restaurants, pubs and tea-rooms. This vibrant location also has museums to explore, excellent cinema and is home to the National Library of Wales. A typically Victorian promenade lines the seafront and the cliff-top ruins of Aberystwyth castle dominate the entire town. A wealth of attractions are designed to entertain and inspire visitors to explore further afield. The scenic 20-mile cycle route and footpath on the Ystwyth Trail follows a wonderful woodland and river path and links Aberystwyth to Tregaron. 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 seven miles away with three miles of sandy beach and the 'Animalarium' to keep all ages amused. With so many attractions, the castle, Welsh craft centres and stunning countryside to explore, this is a perfect base for a family holiday.

Famous for its choirs, stunning mountain ranges and beautiful valleys, this wonderful country has something for everyone. From Snowdonia in North Wales to the Brecon Beacons and the Pembrokeshire Coast in the South.

The cottage was immaculate on arrival and we all commented on the excellent standard of fitting out work throughout. We would certainly love to book this cottage again. The location is ideal for visiting the coastal towns and also for walking the beautiful Rheidol Valley.

The cottage was in a beautiful spot. Everything was clean and tidy, there was plenty of cutlery, pots and many things we have not had in other cottages we have stayed in. The owners were very helpful and we would recommend the cottage as an excellent place to spend a relaxing holiday.
