With stunning views of the surrounding countryside, set in isolated peace and tranquillity, Penwaun is the perfect location for a holiday in Pembrokeshire. Set in lawned gardens, orchards, and paddocks on the banks of the River Nevern and within the National Park, the cottage has been owned by one family for many generations and has undergone extensive refurbishments. A path leads from the cottage through the woods on the riverbank, full of white anemones and bluebells in the spring.
Watch fascinating wildlife, including buzzards, red kites, herons, woodpeckers, and sometimes the flash of blue as a kingfisher darts up the river; you may be lucky enough to see otters too. There is one mile of trout, salmon, and sewin fishing with two permits available by arrangement. Nevern has an early Norman Church with a 1000-year-old Celtic cross, an ancient pilgrims’ cross carved into rock, a village pub, and a Norman castle that has recently been excavated.
The small town of Newport, with its historic port, shops, and galleries, is 2 miles away. Restaurants and cafes include Blas at Fronlas cafe and deli, Pwnc cafe, The Royal Oak Curry House and takeaway, The Golden Lion with modern pub food, and The Castle, which serves excellent food. Newport Sands is dog-friendly and great for family days out or for trying out a range of watersports, or you can go rock-pooling at The Parrog or Cwm yr Eglwys. Penwaun is perfect for exploring the beautiful coastline along the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, taking a walk in the Preseli Hills, and enjoying the lovely countryside.
