2 Penally Boathouse Mews Holiday Cottage in St Dogmaels
Formerly known as Saddlers Cottage, this cosy cwtch cottage is one of three hidden away in the grounds of the owners’ home, Penally House on the bank of the River Teifi in the village of St Dogmaels. Sympathetically renovated to a high standard and furnished in an eclectic mix of contemporary and antique pieces beautifully reflecting its association with the river and its fishing history, the split level L-shaped layout leads from the comfortable sitting area with wood burning stove, which overlooks the pretty gardens with distant views of the estuary, to a fitted kitchen area, then to a lovely romantic double room. Enjoy an alfresco meal on your own south facing terrace on a summer's evening, a board walk leads to another decked area. The shared lawned garden is all beautifully planted with a cottage garden feel.
Set in the heart of St Dogmaels, yet screened from view by stone walls and tall trees, it is a perfect base for Teifi estuary walks, (only 15 yards away), where Cormorants, Curlews, wildlife; and flora are regular guests, as well as the occasional Seal! Relax on the bench set in the shared grounds that overlooks this beautiful waterway and just watch the world drift by. Guests have been known to buy Lobster fresh from the shoreline outside the house from fishermen, a great spot and within walking distance of several local pubs serving good food. The wonderful long beach, Poppit Sands, is less than 2 miles away and marks the start of the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path. There is an excellent farmer’s market and a range of specialist shops, restaurants, pubs and a theatre at the pretty market town of Cardigan, less than a 5 minute drive away.
A perfect romantic getaway for a couple to enjoy.
Babies in arms welcome.
No baby equipment supplied, but you are welcome to bring your own.
Ramp available on request for the 2 internal steps.
Arrival time: 4pm.
