“Lovely Cottage, remote but close enough to the village”
Reviewed January 8, 2018 for a stay in December 2017

We booked Penlan for five nights over New Year 2017 for two adults and a large dog. Arrived to find a very cold cottage but I think it had been empty over Christmas so fair enough. After reading a couple of the reviews, we had taken two small fan heaters and these, with the 'not-quite-man-enough' storage heaters, and the lounge electric heater on, we soon had the place habitable and warm. Small cottage, traditional design with functional fittings - inc a very small TV! - OK in the summer but harder in the long dark winter nights. The bed was possibly not to everyone's liking and bit soft - and with a 6ft bed and I'm 6'1", my feet were pushed through the bottom bedframe. The duvet was a bit thin but we had taken our own and we slept well each night. The open fireplace and chimney in the bedroom makes for interesting sounds during high winds, concerning my wife until she realised what it was. Lovely position overlooking the village and across the valley - a sense of being quite remote but in fact only two mins walk into the village. However the immediate access to the cottage is quite steep, not really suitable for limited mobility. Parking was OK, but given that the neighbouring cottage has regular visitors in cars, negotiating the slope can be a bit difficult due to overhanging hedges etc. Lovely bit of Rupert memorabilia, nice bit of history. The surrounding gardens were fenced in (to keep sheep out I suspect) so it kept the dog from wandering. The only issue with our dog was that at night, letting him out for a late night wee in the dark (the outside light doesn't really cover that far in), we had to make sure he didn't fall off the edge of the wall into the garden, had to make sure he turned left first.
The cottage is advertised as for up to five people - personally, I think three would be about the maximum due to the size of the rooms and general space, especially in the winter - summer may be a bit different with regard to more outdoor time.

The big question is 'would we go back'?? Like a shot if we can find the time / availability - but if we went in winter, we'd make sure we took the heaters and duvet.

“Stunning Location, great views ...Sadly needs TLC”

people found this review helpful

Great views from all rooms of the cottage. Enclosed garden which was perfect for the dog, with mountain walks right on the door step and the village just a few minutes walk. away Wonderful location BUT ...

The cottage really does need some upgrading

The Television is the size of a laptop with built in DVD player that does not always work, the ariel cable kept falling out so my partner had to fix it

Sofas and chairs are very uncomfortable and need replacing . The bathroom needs updating and the heater did not work

The front and back doors very difficult to lock and unlock

The advert for the property stated linens provided This does not include towels !

Refuse Bins had not been emptied from the let prior to ours . we woke on our first morning to find rubbish all over the garden , the badgers had raided in the night, It took sometime to clean up

Penlan cottage is in a beautiful quiet position only a few minutes stroll to the centre of the village with great walks alround from your doorstep. Will certainly go back again, and would reccommend to anyone. Doreen and Derek. September 2012.
