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.

A lovely place to stay. We stayed in 2 Penally Boathouse Mews (aka Saddlers Cottage) for our honeymoon. We loved the cosy and comfortable atmosphere, as well as enjoying the quiet village and coastal walks. Highlights of our stay have included visiting Dinas Head, St Dogmaels Market and Poppit Sands. Porthgain is also very well worth a visit - we had lunch at 'The Shed' which does great fish and chips. We hope to visit again soon.
We have had a lovely relaxing week, the cottage is perfect. Weather has been very kind. The market in St Dogmaels on a Tuesday is worth a visit, as is The Watch House for lunch. The Ferry Inn is good for food too. Mwnt is fabulous. Thank you.
Had a really great time. Thank you for everything. Looking forward to our next visit.
Very pleasant and comfortable accommodation - with a week of sunshine it made for a very good holiday! St Dogmaels Abbey and market not to be missed!
