Common Name: Bluebell
Latin Name: Hyacinthoides non-scripta
Description: Up to 20 bell shaped flowers on a sturdy stem. Wonderful perfume.
Season: mid April to late May
Colour: Blue, sometimes white
More Information: Bluebells like the shade of woodland, but where the woods have gone, particularly on north facing slopes, they can still be found on open land – a memory of woodland.
Location: Almost anywhere in west Wales but spectacularly on north facing coast slopes such as the one above Poppit Sands heading towards Newport on the coast path.
More Information: One of the true pleasures of a spring visit to Cardigan Bay are the fabulous range of wild flowers.
Common Name: Stitchwort
Latin Name: Stellaria graminea
Description: Small delicate flower with star shape
Location: Seen here with bluebells but often with campion too. This photo was taken on the coast path
Common Name: Wild Daffodil
Latin Name: Narcissus pseudonarcissus
Description: Wild daffodils are shorter than the long stemmed cultivated plants. They grow in small clumps, often at the base of trees and hedges.
Season: Late Winter – Early Spring
More Information: During the 19th Century the daffodil seems to have replaced the leek as the plant of Wales, possibly because it flowers around March 1st – St. David’s Day, and it is so beautiful
Common Name: Teasel
Latin Name: Dipsacus fullonum
Description: Remarkable flower whose dried heads feel like velcro. The tiny flowers appear around the teasel in a ring which then expands until the whole flower head is covered.
More Information: Traditionally teasel heads were used to comb the wool fibres in the woollen industry which is one explanation of their spread along the streams and rivers where wool has historically been spun or woven. Drefach Felindre used to be a very renowned wool area.
Location: Along the banks of the Teifi. This photo was taken under the bridge at at Cenarth.
Common Name: Lesser Celandine
Latin Name: Ficaria verna
Description: It has fleshy dark green, heart-shaped leaves and distinctive flowers with bright yellow, glossy petal
Location: Again common on roadsides and lanes and often found in large areas of woodland
Initially exploring the ‘taming of birds’ through my paintings, I have begun using photography and short bursts of film to examine the form and substance of their eggs. Last Spring friends collected empty eggshells donating them in handmade boxes stuffed with lamb’s wool and recycled tissue. These eggshells and cases have been filmed and it is my intention to use them to inform future paintings.

The properties have been lovingly transformed from the barns and stables that originally serviced the farm, by Yvonne & Howell, who live in the Farmhouse and are your hosts – attention to detail and a relaxed atmosphere are their by-words.
The cottages are set in 10 glorious acres of grounds which sit invitingly above the village of Cenarth with pastoral views across to the Preseli Hills & Pembrokeshire National Park. Lots of room to run and play for the younger ones and little secluded corners to just sit with a book or watch the Red Kites & Buzzards overhead! Total relaxation is a rare commodity but easily achievable at Penwern Fach.
The cottages are all named after rivers in the surrounding area – Gwaun, Cych, Teifi, Towy, Hirwaun & Cothi – some are easier to pronounce than others! All however are a tasteful blend of old world charm and modern convenience.
We have retained the stone walls and exposed beams and you will find everything you’ll need for holiday comfort – fully equipped kitchens with fridge freezers, washing machines, dishwashers and microwaves.
Cottages are centrally heated but all properties also have a wood-burning stove in the lounge for that real cosy ‘country’ experience.
The cottages boast all the mod cons, think ‘escape to the country’ chic, easy comfort and warm neutral colours. With a toasty log burner in every one, providing the perfect excuse for leaving the All Wales Coastal Path for next time, and staying in with a novel and a glass of something, they make a great base for a luxury break at any time of the year.
Use of the Leisure facilities at Coracles Health & Country Club on Cenarth Falls Holiday Park just down the road can be enjoyed at a discounted rate for all Cottage guests – you can also enjoy a drink and a little evening entertainment when the bar & pizzeria are open!
Penwern Fach cottages are situated near Cardigan Bay home of the Bottlenose Dolphins & Grey Seals and about seven miles from some really glorious sandy beaches such as Mwnt, Llangrannog, Aberporth, seaside towns like New Quay and the spectacular coastline of Cardigan Bay.
Numerous golf courses are fairly close by and you can take the opportunity to brush up your skills on our 250 yard golf practice area before heading off for a round or two! We have a football field for the children (young & old), a small games room plus a purpose built Playtower for the little ones.
With their independent boutiques and café culture Newcastle Emlyn, Aberaeron, and Newport are a few miles away. Look out for a super-pod of the local bottlenose Dolphins, or spot the porpoises at the award-winning beaches of Mwnt, Tresaith and Llangrannog – all are easily accessible from Penwern Fach.
Just a mile or so down the road is the picturesque little village of Cenarth with a Supermarket, Church and two village Pubs and which is well known for its Salmon Leap Waterfalls. The market town of Newcastle Emlyn is just 3 miles further on.
The county town of Cardigan is just seven miles west from the cottages and has a fair selection of craft shops, theatre, galleries, library not to mention the larger supermarkets for the weekly shop. A fine Abbey and Church is at nearby St.Dogmaels and a mile or so along the estuary is the popular beach of Poppit Sands
