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 cottage's layout

Ground floor
kitchen/dining room, sitting room with wood-burning stove, small reading room, shower room, utility room.
First floor
four bedrooms (2 doubles with 5' beds, both with en-suite shower rooms, 2 twins) and bathroom.
Visitor notes

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.

Things to see and do nearby

South Wales is a land of sweeping green valleys, rugged mountains, woodland and forests and miles of coastal paths laced with heather.

The special places we look after in Pembrokeshire include the rugged landscape and views over to Ireland from St David’s Peninsula, to the nature reserve at Stackpole where otters and dragonflies nestle amongst the water reeds. Then take in the views over the Bristol Channel to Lundy and Exmoor from sun-drenched Rhossili, the highest point on the Gower peninsula.

In North Wales, the dramatic mountain scenery of Snowdonia, with its rivers, waterfalls and the Nant Gwynant valley nestled amongst the mountains and hills, draws people back again and again, while the colourful beach huts at Llanbedrog beach and grey seal-spotting at Porthor Beach are just a few of the highlights of the very special Llyn Peninsula.

Brecon Beacons

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.

    We like the rural setting and being able to go for walks directly from the cottage. We also really enjoyed our " behind the scenes" tour of Newton House. We found all of the N T staff, including those at the visitor centre at Newton House, very friendly and helpful.
