More about Penpompren

Perhaps derived from the Welsh for ‘at the end of the wooden bridge', Penpompren is a sweet, detached cottage in a sleepy location in the Cwm Rheidol valley. The cottage has been carefully prepared and presented by the owner who wants you to have a lovely stay. The living/dining room has exposed full height A-frame beams and double aspect windows, which give a light and airy feel, and the wood burner offers that authentic country experience. Curl up on the comfy leather corner sofa with a good book and a glass of wine and while away a few hours. The kitchen is well-equipped for all your needs and leads out onto the enclosed courtyard garden where there is a table and chairs for al fresco dining or your morning coffee. There are two bedrooms, one with zip and link beds and one with a double, as well as a family bathroom. Penpompren is pet friendly so you can bring along your furry friends.

The cottage is just a mile from the beautiful Cwm Rheidol reservoir and the nearby Rheidol hydropower plant is the largest of its kind in England and Wales. Since 1962, it has generated renewable energy by using the rainwater that falls on the surrounding mountains. There is a fascinating free visitor centre (open May-Sep) with interactive educational models for the younger generation who want to learn about renewable energy, as well as a cafe.

Cwm Rheidol is close to the local red kite feeding centre, so kites and buzzards are seen in the skies all the time. Bat colonies have set up home in and around the visitor centre buildings which have been refurbished with due consideration of the preservation of the bats, and the centre has set up boxes for barn owls and have many other small birds that nest on site, including swallows and wagtails. The River Rheidol is also a breeding area for salmon and trout. Visit the Magic of Life Butterfly House just over a mile away or explore the Silver Mountain Experience, just a 20-minute drive away. Here you can embark on an adventure of guided tours, discovering the history of the silver lead mine or experience the Welsh myths through actor led shows. Whilst you are here, do take the meandering Vale of Rheidol Narrow Gauge Steam Railway from Devil's Bridge to Abersytwyth or vice versa. The dramatic waterfalls at Devil's Bridge are quite a sight and there's a chocolate shop, bar and restaurant too. The Victorian seaside town of Aberystwyth is only 8 miles away where you will find the pier and promenade, electric cliff railway to the summit of Constitution Hill and of course lots of shops, cafes and restaurants. Once you are in Aberystwyth head north or south and explore the amazing Ceredigion coastline, with lovely beaches, many dog friendly all year round, pretty seaside towns and 60 miles of coastal path!

Whether there are just two of you looking for a peaceful or romantic break or a family of four seeking adventure, you won't be disappointed with this stunning area and Penpompren is the perfect place to unwind. Beach 10 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 4 miles.
