About the Property

This is a unique opportunity to acquire this small chalet-style cottage near Penbryn Beach. Set within 2.11 acres,this charming property is nestled up a scenic track, just a stroll away from the breathtaking Penbryn Beach. The cottage itself boasts a cosy chalet-style architecture, exuding a warm and inviting atmosphere.

Penbryn is arguably the most striking of the beaches along this stretch of West Wales coastline. It is completely unspoiled and a haven for wildlife. It is owned and managed by the National Trust which has taken great pains to protect the surrounding natural habitat. As a result, there has been little land development and the existing houses in the Penbryn and Penmorfa valley have been there since the 1800s and early 1900s (and earlier). This locality offers a tranquil and relaxing rural lifestyle.

As you approach the property, you’ll be greeted by the sight of mature gardens and trees, adding a natural beauty to the surroundings. The landscape not only enhances the aesthetic appeal of the cottage but also offers a tranquil setting.

One of the standout features of this property is the generous 2-acre paddock that accompanies it. This spacious outdoor area provides many possibilities, whether you envision it as a space for gardening or a playground for family and pets. The paddock offers a unique and versatile element to the package.

The proximity to Penbryn Beach adds another layer of appeal, allowing for easy access to the sandy shores and the soothing sound of the ocean. Whether you’re looking for a permanent residence, a vacation home, or an investment opportunity, this setting provides a perfect balance of tranquillity and coastal living.

The track leading to the cottage ensures a sense of seclusion, offering a retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

About Penbryn

The beach itself is a mile long stretch of sandy shores split in two by the river Hoffnant, which ends its journey, down the steep valley, here. To the right of the river is a beach backed by sand dunes and high cliffs and at low tide it is possible to explore the cave and walk around to the second bay, which is even more stunning than the main beach as it feels like entering a paradisal haven, almost like stepping back in time. To the left of the river the dunes give way to high cliffs and a longer stretch of beach that end in rocky pools, excellent for exploring.

Penbryn Beach is not a built-up seaside village, its facilities include a car park, toilets, and a café. The walk down to the beach from the car park is about a quarter of a mile. There is a turning circle at the bottom of the road for dropping off and picking up. Once you’ve parked, at the top of the hill, you can either walk straight down the road or take the path that winds down through the woods through Cwm Lladron (Robber’s Valley). The beach is well known for its history of smuggling!

Other walks through the woods include a tramp away from the shoreline and up towards one of the oldest churches in Wales; the medieval parish church of St. Michael, a Grade I listed building, dating back to the 13th Century.

The area is serviced by a Primary school in Brynhoffnant, a short drive away, and the Secondary school for the area is either Cardigan Secondary School or Ysgol Bro Teifi in Llandysul. Also in Brynhoffnant you can find Hoffnant Stores, attached to the petrol station, Y Bryn a'r Bragdy is a newly refurbished brewery and restaurant offering food and on-site brewed beers. At the nearby Gogerddan Garage, in Tanygroes, you will find a local Post Office and mini supermarket.

Penbryn is also on the Coastal Way – the spectacular coastal path that runs 180 miles along the Cardigan Bay coastline from North Wales, through Ceredigion and down to Pembrokeshire. To the south approximately 10 miles distant is the attractive market town Cardigan and a similar distance to the north and east are the towns of Aberaeron & Newcastle Emlyn.
