Welsh Hideaways


Ty Mari and Penroc are set in the stunning landscape of the Cambrian Mountains, at the interface of wild mountains and wooded valleys where sheep farming, forests and mountain top views combine to make this one of the most beautiful hidden secrets of Mid Wales. We are told that few self-catering holiday cottages offer such comfort, complete peace and a sense of retreat for those who love to escape our fast-paced world.

These two attractive 18th century cottages are on the outskirts of a tiny village called Cwmystwyth, 17 miles inland from Aberystwyth on the Rhayader mountain road.

They are situated 100 meters along a rough track from the main road, with ample parking provided in separate fenced garden areas, along with space for sunbathing and a barbecue! Fencing is dog-proof for all but the smallest dogs.

Dogs are part of the family, and we believe you should be able to enjoy your Welsh holiday with them! Bring your well-behaved dogs along to our stunning dog friendly holiday cottages, Penroc and Ty Mari, to enjoy a lovely getaway in scenic Wales. 

Both of our pet-friendly holiday cottages come fully equipped with king size beds as well as comfy twin rooms – so after a long day of walking with the dogs and outdoor activities, you will be sure of a good night’s sleep. But before you turn in for the night, you can take full advantage of the wonderful views that mid-west Wales has to offer on the balcony terrace, while enjoying a home cooked dinner or glass of wine on a summer’s evening. The international dark sky park is nearby so star-gazing is an unforgettable experience. One site is at The Arch, only a 10 minute drive from Welsh Hideaways.

For those cold and dark nights, there are a range of options to keep you entertained as you enjoy the heat of the stove, including Smart TV, DVDs, audio system, surprisingly fast internet and a good selection of games. Whether it’s a romantic countryside retreat or a large family/group walking holiday in Wales – the cottages cater for everyone (even your dog!). In 2018, Penroc won the prestigious Customers’ Choice Award, thanks to great reviews.

Washing machine/dryer in Ty Mari only but laundry close by available.
