A beautifully converted, Grade II listed former miner's cottage, situated by the River Rheidol near Capel Bangor, with two bedrooms accommodating four people.

Penlon is a beautifully restored miner's cottage, now Grade II listed, near the River Rheidol in Mid Wales, two miles from the village of Capel Bangor. The cottage has two bedrooms; a twin room and a room with bunk beds on the ground floor. There is also a shower room, a kitchen, a dining room and a sitting room with a woodburner and a sofa bed.

Outside, the garden is lawned with furniture and across the road at the front of the cottage runs the River Rheidol, across which lies a paddock where sheep are occasionally kept. In a wonderful position for walking and cycling, and exploring this beautiful, diverse region, Penlon is a charming holiday base for friends and families alike.


Well it?s not bad
Well where to start Noisy bathroom door No mention of washer / dryer which would have been handy Road gets very very busy and noisy Skylight leaks No curtain on skylight letting sun in I?m on holiday need a break and sleep Dirty dishwasher Very small second bedroom No bin/mirror in main bed Single beds in main bed and no reason to be Not enough relevant info re local area Not off road parking you are in a lay-by Having to move bedding do u can actually unpack to stay Certainly would not visit again which is a shame as a lovely area

Penlon is a well equipped cottage, in lovely scenic tranquil surroundings.
Mr Bulmer

Penlon is a quiet and peaceful, with lovely views because we needed the rest .
Mrs Parton

The cottage was immaculate on arrival and we all commented on the excellent standard of fitting out work throughout. We would certainly love to book this cottage again. The location is ideal for visiting the coastal towns and also for walking the beautiful Rheidol Valley.
Mr Bretherton

The cottage was in a beautiful spot. Everything was clean and tidy, there was plenty of cutlery, pots and many things we have not had in other cottages we have stayed in. The owners were very helpful and we would recommend the cottage as an excellent place to spend a relaxing holiday.
Mrs Potts
