Secluded comfortable retreat located in the foothills of the Preseli mountains in West Wales, within easy reach of beautiful beaches, spectacular countryside and the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. Situated on a smallholding with woodland gardens, meadows and pond.
Whatever your wish, whether you'd like to walk the Preseli hills, explore the coastal path, surf the waves off Newgale beach, try coasteering off the Pembrokeshire cliffs, gaze at the dolphins and seals in Cardigan Bay, visit the host of gorgeous natural gardens close to hand, including Aberglasney and the Botanical Gardens, or simply enjoy the peace and seclusion of Pencwm, we have something to satisfy every member of the family. Pencwm has a 4-star rating from the Welsh Tourist Board. The farmhouse sleeps up to twelve adults plus cot, although it is cosy enough for smaller groups.
Beautiful Pembrokeshire, Carmarthenshire and Ceredigion countryside and the Preseli Mountains scenery surround the house. This is an area of local crafts and various organic food producers. You’ll find historic Celtic sites, rugged small beaches and expansive golden sands. The market towns of Cardigan (the nearest town at 14 miles) and Carmarthen are well worth a visit. There is a leisure centre with an indoor pool five miles away. Oakwood Theme Park is 20 miles. Cultural attractions include lots of open-air theatre in the local castle grounds during the summer; live music (ethnic, classical and folk) at Theatre Mwldan in Cardigan and in Narberth; and all the usual theatre productions. There are two fishing lakes nearby.
The house is on a hilltop, a mile outside the village of Glandwr. The nearest pub is three miles away in Llanglydwen. Nearest airports are Cardiff (1hr 20 mins) and Swansea (1 hr). Nearest train station is Whitland (20 mins). From England and the East take M4 to Carmarthen then A40 on to St Clears where you come off main road and head north to Llangynin and Blaenwaun. Turn left after Blaenwaun, over two sets of crossroads and we are second lane on the left. Very rural so you do need a car.

There are six bedrooms, one of which is a twin bedded room on the ground floor. Upstairs are two double bedrooms, one one triple sleeper bedroom (double bed under with single bed over), one bunk bedroom and one single bedroom. There is a downstairs cloakroom and two further bathrooms upstairs. All the upstairs bedrooms have views onto the surrounding countryside with the Preselis in the distance. The well equipped kitchen is the heart of the farmhouse with an oil fired AGA and a dining table to seat twelve. There is a walk-in larder, wooden fitted units, plus fridge freezer, microwave/multi oven, dishwasher, small TV/DVD, iPod dock and dartboard! The washing machine/dryer is in the downstairs cloakroom. The open-beamed living room has comfy sofas, an open fire, a TV/DVD and video player, games, DVDs and videos, and well-lined bookshelves opening up into a south-facing conservatory with an established grapevine.
The garden is large and securely fenced, and has swings and a slide, a patio with garden furniture, a barbecue and badminton net, and large paddling pool for adults and children. There are tree rope swings for children and adults in the fields. Donkeys, dogs and cats are kept by the owner who lives in the original stone Welsh longhouse on the other side of the farmyard, and there are rare breed sheep grazing in the surrounding meadows. Down in the woodland garden our BBQ cabin is a great space for feasting or just communing al fresco, whatever the weather.
The magnificent beaches of South and West Wales are all around, the nearest 14 miles away at Poppet just outside Cardigan. There is an abundance of wildlife around here too, including buzzards, wild ducks and heron on the pond, owls, badgers and several varieties of bats. The nearest village with a shop and post office is 5 miles away, and you are equidistant from Cardigan, Haverfordwest and Carmarthen. The setting is rural and wonderfully peaceful, with the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, two fishing lakes and the rugged peaks of the Preseli Hills all within easy reach. We are situated right on the border of the three counties of West Wales and beautiful Pembrokeshire, Carmarthenshire and Ceredigion countryside and National Park surround the house. This is an area of historic Celtic sites, rugged small beaches and expansive golden sands. There are many ancient castles and Welsh folklore and legends abound. The Welsh language is widely spoken. We have a wealth of local talented artists, craftsmen and organic food producers. Carmarthenshire is known as the garden of Wales and hosts the National Botanical Gardens with Aberglasney nearby, together with numerous natural gardens to visit throughout the three counties.
