Holiday Cottages near Cenarth Newcastle Emlyn

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.


Visit Wales Five Star Accommodation
Penwern Fach Holiday cottages are situated in a stunning rural location in a truly unspoilt region of West Wales just inland of Cardigan Bay.

Holiday Cottage Features

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.

Cottage Amenities

Naturally each cottage has its own patio furniture with outside lighting & a communal Barbecue set a short distance from the cottages making it easy to make the acquaintance of your neighbours on a warm summer evening.

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.
