Penroc is a most delightful, cosy 200 year old Welsh stone cottage surrounded by beautiful countryside with magnificent views over the Cambrian Mountains.  It has been sympathetically refurbished by an interior designer to encompass the charm and character with modern comforts including furnishings to a very high standard.  The accommodation on the ground floor is a beautiful large open plan room having slate floors with scatter rugs and original beamed ceilings; there is a well-equipped kitchen/dining area, a cosy living area around an attractive gas burning stove and a spacious garden room with seating area and window seats in the bay picture windows – all of which have the added luxury of under-floor heating. The owners have thoughtfully provided plenty of DVDs to enjoy along with a good selection of books, puzzles and games for those relaxing evenings round the fire, or reading a good book in the window bay with Red Kites circling overhead – this will soon recharge your batteries!   As a mobile signal isn’t good in the cottage, a landline telephone is there in case of emergencies.  There are 2 bedrooms upstairs, one with a King size double bed with ‘Vi-Spring’ mattress which enjoys a very special feature of a large balcony for relaxing with a lazy breakfast or enjoying a meal surrounded by glorious views of the Ystwyth valley.  The second bedroom has twin beds and the beamed bathroom gives the usual comforts with heated towel rail and shaver point. There is a bath with hand held shower attachment but no separate shower due to lack of space.  If you should require more bedrooms and a second bathroom, there is a connecting sound-proofed door to the adjoining cottage, as Penroc can either be booked independently or together with Ty Mari, where you can enjoy two double bedrooms and three twin bedrooms giving space for ten people, which would accommodate the gathering of family and friends. The two cottages share a small garden space with glorious views. There is room to park cars, barbecue or just sit and take in the scenery. Unfortunately Penroc is not suitable for disabled people due to the accessibility, and the garden fence is not dog-proof. 
Penroc can be booked together with Ty Mari (CC624010) to accommodate up to 10 guests.

About the local area

Cwmystwyth is a farming community lying by the Cambrian Mountains and the cottage looks out onto sheep-grazed uplands. Below is the Ystwyth valley with its ancient hanging oaks and contemporary coniferous woodland. It is one of the most beautiful valleys in mid-Wales and there are glorious walks along by the river with spectacular waterfalls in wetter weather. The river is just three minutes walk from Penroc. Devil’s Bridge Falls, three miles from the village is a famous tourist attraction and not to be missed, although the climb is not for the frail or faint-hearted. Nearby is the dramatic and varied Ceredigion coastline. The Forestry Commission manages the woodland around Cwmystwyth and the forest tracks provide a variety of walks, particularly appreciated by dog owners as they are free of sheep. Many of the walks are way-marked, but there are Ordnance Survey maps at Penroc. There are stunning views from the surrounding summits. Red kites and buzzards soar overhead and ravens, peregrines, sparrow hawks, merlins and goshawks may be seen. A most wonderful, relaxing break would be had by all here at Penroc.
