Penroc – Dog Friendly Holiday Cottage in Mid-Wales

2 Bedrooms, 1 Double & 1 Twin Bedroom

Price Per Week

from £395 – £795

​Penroc, one of our Welsh holiday cottages, has been in the wider family since 1974. Recently refurbished and extended to include a lovely balcony and panoramic living area below. Penroc has a stunning Ceredigion uplands landscape view overlooking the interface of wild mountains and wooded valleys. This dog friendly holiday cottage boasts a patio where you can sit outside and take in the breathtaking views – perfect for stargazers and canine lovers!

Both Penroc and Ty Mari are attractive 19th century cottages on the outskirts of a tiny village called Cwmystwyth: they are situated 100 meters along a rough track from the main road, so you are well-placed to explore the rugged landscapes of the Cambrian Mountains along with the natural beauty of Mid Wales.

*Parties are only permitted if both cottages are booked together

We have enjoyed a fabulous time at Penroc, along with our Golden Retriever! Extremely comfortable beds, wonderful cooking facilities, and lovely relaxing area for TV, DVDs, reading and playing games. Breath-taking views all around, and fabulous walks every day. We have also been blessed with the best of the summer weather! A wonderful stay, thank you!

We stayed both at Ty Mari and Penroc. The cottages were both very well equipped and comfortable. We had a wonderful holiday. We loved the beautiful views over the valley. Alan, the caretaker, was so very helpful.

Wonderful place in a wonderful setting

Penroc is a wonderful place in a wonderful setting. Lazy days spent sitting on the balcony watching the bird’s and wild life go by , or be a little more energetic and have a walk around the nearby reservoir’s , and if you want a work out try a climbing up the valley where the disused ancient mines are .
Alan the caretaker is helpful and wealth of local knowledge.
We have been here a couple of times and every visit is different , and it just gets better each time as we get to know the area.
Booking With Gareth is easy and there is never any drama and everything just goes smoothly as you would want on holiday . The only downside is I don’t get enough holiday to stay here for 6 months at a time
