Penparc cottage was constructed on the edge of Dinefwr Park between 1905 and 1911 and is built in a distinctive style. Originally it was two cottages with walls of snecked masonry of local stone and a hipped terracotta roof. The cottage offers fine views across the valley on one side and into Dinefwr Park on the other, with its interesting eighteenth-century designed landscape and excellent walks. Penparc has its own garden from which to enjoy these wonderful views.
The cot in this cottage is a travel cot. However, there is no child stairgate provided.
The cottage is approached over a hardcore track which is accessible with care.
One en-suite has limited headroom above the toilet due to the sloping ceiling.
Gate from garden to field is locked due to grazing animals, however there are many alternative walks from the property.
Parental supervision needed for young children as unfenced garden in front of the cottage has a drop to the lane below (approx 6 ft).
Occasional aircraft noise from low flying military aircraft.
In November and December deer culling may take place on the property, please keep to the footpaths in the park if this is taking place.
Oil central heating included.
South Wales is a region rich in natural resources. Beautiful valleys which once saw the growth of some of Britain's greatest industries, offer visitors magnificent scenery and glimpses of the past. Much of the outstanding natural beauty of the area remains untouched. It is a land of contrasts, mountains and moorlands, forest and farmland and magnificent stretches of unspoilt coastline. The National Trust's interests in South Wales include large areas of the Brecon Beacons, Pembrokeshire and Gower, as well as the Dolaucothi Gold Mines, spectacular Aberdulais Falls and the Tudor Merchant's House in Tenby.
Situated about an hour north of Cardiff, this mountainous region is largely known for its spectacular natural landscapes. And it's true that the peaks of the Beacons and the Black Mountains have views to take your breath away. Climb Pen-y-Fan, the highest peak in South Wales, on a clear day and you'll be able to see as far as the Gower Peninsula to the west and across the lush Usk Valley to the English border to the east. But there's much more on offer than just walking: market towns such as Brecon and Llandeilo, the Trust's own Dolaucothi Gold mines and Dinefwr Park and Castle.
