Pensarnau grabs your attention as soon as you enter it. The owners, who are both talented artists, have meticulously decorated and styled the detached cottage to great effect; giving it a modern feel but at the same time showcasing the classic period features. Perfect for a family holiday, there’s plenty of living space including a lovely living/dining room with wood burner, which leads through to the sleek and glossy kitchen. On the other side of the main hallway there’s a comfortable snug with a second wood burner and distinctive bright armchairs and accessories to give it a contemporary but cosy feel, perfect for curling up with a book and a glass of wine! Upstairs there are three lovely bedrooms, all with their own style, and a study which can double up as a cot room. The first floor modern bathroom has been fitted with a bath and separate shower cubicle. Outside there is a large lawned garden with a sitting-out area and an additional timber and tiled roofed gazebo where you can dine al fresco. There’s also a handy garden toilet in an outbuilding.
Pensarnau is situated on the main coastal road, which means you’re extremely handy for exploring Cardigan Bay. Here there are beach walks to be had, dolphins to be spotted, and coastal towns and villages to be explored. A little over 2 miles will bring you to the National Trust beach of Penbryn or the beach at Tresaith, where there’s a great pub overlooking the sea. The tranquil cove at Llangrannog has two pubs and cafés, and a bit further up the coast the pretty seaside town of New Quay has a good selection of eateries and independent shops as well as lovely beaches. There are many beaches up and down the coast that accept dogs year round, if you are bringing your furry friends on holiday. Make sure you visit Cardigan town itself, just a 15 minute drive will bring you to the thriving market town on the banks of the estuary. Stroll around the narrow streets and visit the ancient castle ruins and exhibitions. There’s an Indian restaurant on a boat and in season a tipi restaurant serving wood fired pizzas! There’s so much to explore in Cardigan Bay but if you want a day out to Pembrokeshire you can reach the well-known family attractions of Oakwood Theme Park and Folly Farm Adventure Park & Zoo (with the only giraffes in Wales) within an hour. Wales’ smallest city of St David’s with a magnificent Cathedral and Bishops Palace will only take you 75 minutes to reach. It’s all here for you, whether you like golf, walking, fishing, beach-combing or just relaxing. Come and see for yourself, Pensarnau will be the perfect base for your Welsh adventure. Beach 2.4 miles. Shop 1.5 miles, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

About the local area

One of the most rural counties in Wales, overlooking Cardigan Bay, Ceredigion offers unspoilt countryside and uncrowded beaches. Much of the coastline is designated as a `heritage coast', and is one of Britain's most diverse areas for marine wildlife.

The coast is home to a resident pod of some 130 bottlenose dolphins as well as porpoises and grey seals. Eco-friendly boat trips to fully experience the coastline and its wildlife run frequently in the summer months from New Quay and Aberaeron. Hidden coves and sandy beaches also allow you to escape from the crowds.

Inland the countryside is a green vastness of hills and valleys dotted with small villages and market towns. There are several nature reserves, home to rare species of flora and fauna. Explore these on one of the many walking trails across the county and for the more adventurous; there is an awesome 35 km mountain biking trail in Nant Bwlch yr Arian high in the Cambrian Mountains. And afterwards, treat yourself to an award wining honey ice cream from Aberaeron!
