Reload this mapThe location of Penroc is delightful, surrounded by beautiful countryside with magnificent views. The very special feature is a double bedroom with a large balcony for relaxing or enjoying a meal surrounded by glorious views of the Ystwyth valley.
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.
The cottage is cosy and extremely comfortable and has been sympathetically refurbished by an interior designer. Until you get away from the noise of traffic you won't realise how hectic everyday life can be. Family games in front of the fire, or sitting in the window bay with a good book and red kites circling overhead soon recharges the batteries.
- Heating is night storage but the gas-burning stove makes the cottage warm enough even in deep winter and is lovely to sit around. The windows are double-glazed and furnishings are to a high standard. For added winter luxury there is the option of underfloor heating (£20 pw extra).
- Downstairs there is one large room with a well-equipped kitchen area along one wall, a spacious sitting area with double-glazed picture windows and a cosy living area around an attactive gas stove. There is a Flatscreen TV, Sky HD FreeSat and DVD player with plenty of prerecorded DVDs to enjoy. A selection of books, puzzles and games are provided as well. A telephone is there in case of emergencies as there is the bliss of knowing that mobiles and blackberries will remain silent!
- The kitchen has all you need for your stay. A three drawer freezer means fewer trips to the excellent Spar at Rhayader or Morrisons at Aberystwyth. The village store at Devil's Bridge sells basic essentials.
- There are 2 bedrooms upstairs, one with a double bed (Vi-spring mattress) and adjoining balcony, and one with twin beds. Duvets, pillows sheets, towels and blankets are provided.
- Beamed bathroom with heated towel rail and shaver point.
- If you require more bedrooms and a second bathroom, there is a connecting door to the adjoining cottage. When unlocked, you can enjoy two double bedrooms and three twin bedrooms with plenty of space for ten people. For details see Ty Mari and Ty Mari with Penroc.
The two cottages have adjacent gardens, again with glorious views. There is plenty of space to park cars, barbecue or just sit and take in the scenery.
