We are told that few self-catering holiday cottages offer such comfort, complete peace and a sense of retreat from our fast-paced world for those who love to escape and enjoy a deep cleaned safe environment. This dog friendly holiday cottage in mid-west Wales is set on the edge of the Cambrian Mountains in a breathtaking location, as seen in the ‘Hinterland’ TV series. For those looking for adventure and self-catering holidays in Wales there are endless beautiful walks for children, adults and dogs alike. A narrow gauge steam railway is nearby; swimming, dolphin spotting, Red Kite feeding and bird watching, mountain biking, fly fishing, horse riding and viewing historic mines are amongst the attractions local to the holiday cottages. Of course the internet is unlimited for those who need it! While the cottage is pet and dog friendly, owners are encouraged to read the relevant FAQs on Welsh Hideaways website to ensure their dog’s holiday needs will be met too! During the Covid pandemic, the cottage is deep cleaned prior to each letting and we prevent re-booking by another on your day of departure to ensure there is time for thorough cleansing. Full details are in FAQ of Welsh Hideaways website.

The space
Penroc comes fully equipped with a king size bed as well as a comfy twin room – so after a long day of walking with the dogs and outdoor activities, you will be sure of a good night’s sleep. But before you turn in for the night, you can take full advantage of the wonderful views that mid-west Wales has to offer from the balcony with a glass of wine on a summer’s evening. The international dark sky park is nearby so star-gazing is an unforgettable experience.
For those cold and dark nights, there are a range of options to keep you entertained as you enjoy the heat of the stove, including SkySat TV, DVDs, audio system, fast internet (30Mbps+) and a good selection of games. Whether it’s a romantic countryside retreat or a walking holiday in Wales – the cottage caters for everyone (even your dog!).

Guest access
The whole cottage is there for our guests.

Other things to note
Ty Mari and Penroc are set in a stunning landscape at the interface of wild mountains and wooded valleys where sheep farming, forests and mountain top views make this one of the beautiful hidden secrets of Wales. These attractive 19th century cottages are on the outskirts of a tiny village called Cwmystwyth: they are situated 100 meters along a rough track from the main road. There is a terrace of homes either side of the track, with Ty Mari at the end and Penroc at right-angles on the headland. The fenced garden area is very limited and is shared between the cottages but there is just space for cars, sunbathing, two picnic tables and two barbecues! Should you develop symptoms of Covid19 while staying we wish to be informed. Adequate measures are taken to ensure the virus is eliminated from the property anyway but the cleaning team need to be aware.

Location

Aberystwyth, United Kingdom

Cwmystwyth is seventeen miles inland from Aberystwyth along the mountain road to Rhayader. There are excellent walks through the beautiful scenery that surrounds the cottages that includes hilltops, waterfalls, woodland, forests, dams and caves. The Ystwyth valley is one of the RSPB’s successful breeding sites for Red Kites and there is fishing and pony trekking nearby. Sandy beaches are just over half an hour away and there is a narrow gauge railway from Devil’s Bridge to Aberystwyth. Until you get away from the noise of traffic and the telephone you won’t realise how hectic everyday life can be. Family games in front of the fire, or sitting in a window seat with a good book and red kites circling overhead soon recharges the batteries.
