Y Ffermdy at Penbontbren
Y Ffermdy, The Farmhouse, at Penbontbren (which is in our sister guide, Great Little Places) is the latest addition to Huw and Richard’s luxury West Wales retreat. Set in 32 acres of grounds, including breath-taking wildflower gardens and a croquet lawn, this indulgent detached farmhouse delivers easy comfort and warmth in spades.
Situated just 3 miles from the popular Ceredigion coastline, with great views over the Preseli mountains, but only 8 miles from the pretty town of Cardigan, its location is perfect for exploring. Choose from numerous beaches, including the highly acclaimed Mwnt, picture perfect countryside, atmospheric castles, manor houses and museums. Pretty in pale pink, Y Ffermdy, sits proudly next to their gorgeous bed and breakfast suites, offering a newly converted self-contained option with additional privacy and stylish independence. It’s brimming with cosy character, think low-beamed ceilings, huge inglenooks, exposed stone walls, and a focal point wood burning stove. There’s even a choice of two sumptuous sitting rooms, and a tempting DVD library for that well -deserved relaxing night in. The four bedrooms are home to in-keeping antique furniture and there are 3 excellent en-suite bathrooms. The master suite has a super king size bed and the attention to detail shines through. The morning room conservatory leads to a peaceful private garden, there’s a utility room for muddy boots and wet dogs, and a large well kitted out farmhouse kitchen. As part of the bed-and-breakfast complex there is plenty of room should family and friends wish to stay. You don’t even need to cook your own breakfast, the legendary Penbontbren start to the day is available next door, cooked to order using fresh wholesome ingredients, free range eggs, award winning sausages and locally cured back bacon.
