Penyrallt Fach Cottage, Holidays on an Organic Farm in West Wales

If you are seeking peace and quiet and to get away from the hectic pace of everyday life then come to stay on our beautiful organic farm in lovely west Wales.

Enjoy a slower pace of life walking through green fields and ancient woodlands or go to the wonderful coast of Cardigan Bay, just a half-hour drive away, for a stroll along the sand or a ramble on the spectacular Wales Coast Path.

Penyrallt Fach, our eco-friendly cottage, offers guests a tranquil and comfortable place to relax and unwind. In summer you can sit out and listen to the birdsong with a cup of tea and and winter the wood-burning stove is great to sit by with glass of wine and a good book after exploring this beautiful part of Wales and with skies unpolluted by city lights there are ample opportunities for wondrous star-gazing on clear nights.

Penyrallt Home Farm is an organic dairy and sheep farm situated above the Teifi Valley, a few miles from Llandysul.

Visitors are welcome to walk over the farm and see the daily routine of a real working farm which includes the twice-a-day milking of our herd of Ayrshire cows and depending on the time of year, the feeding of calves, lambing and silage or hay-making.

Wildlife abounds on the farm. There are resident badgers, foxes and rabbits as well as buzzards, red kites, herons and kingfishers amongst many other species of indigenous British fauna and flora. In the spring and summer many wildflowers and butterflies are to be found in the hedgerows and banks that run across the farm.

The farm offers a wonderful opportunity for holidays in the lovely Welsh countryside, where you can experience life on a real working farm, as well as being able to visit glorious beaches, spectacular hills and mountains, and much more.

Accommodation

Penyrallt Fach Holiday Cottage

Penyrallt Fach Holiday Cottage provides comfortable, traditional style accommodation in what was originally a 19th century piggery.

The accommodation is on one floor and comprises a fully equipped kitchen/dining/sitting-room with a very efficient wood-burning stove.

There is a large farmhouse table with seating for 4 and in the sitting-room area there are two comfortable sofas, on which to relax after long summer days on the beach or invigorating walks in the hills. An extensive library of books & a large number dvds is provided, also a digital radio with iPod dock and a dvd player. There is no tv reception so while staying in the cottage is not a complete escape from the modern world it can be an opportunity to unplug from it. Free Wifi is available.

A home-baked cake and flowers from the garden will be on the table on your arrival.

There are two bedrooms which are simply and attractively furnished with a double bed and twin beds respectively, which have been hand-crafted by the owners using timber harvested from the farm's sustainably managed woodlands.

The cottage is adjacent to the 17th century farmhouse and a fine range of farm buildings, all of which are Grade 2 listed by CADW as a prime example of a model 19th century farm.

Inside the wagon is a double bed, which is slightly shorter than average at 5ft 9in long but still cosy. There are also underbed cupboards and cushioned seating.

Alongside the wagon is a hand-craftedlog cabin, built with materials from the farm by Will and his father David Robinson. Outside is a private decked area and handmade bench and table where you can sit and soak up the peace and tranquility. You'll also find an open fire pit, where you can cook outdoors, should you wish to do so.

Inside the cabin you'll find a log burner, sofa and tv to watch dvd's. The kitchen comprises a Belfast sink, fridge, 2-ring gas burner, microwave oven and all other basic essentials, and there is also a shower room, with sink and flushing toilet, all supplied with water from our own spring.

About Penyrallt Home Farm

Penyrallt Home Farm is a 140 acre organic, traditional, mixed, family farm overlooking the beautiful Teifi Valley. It has been run by the Robinson family since 1960.

The farm's main enterprises are the production of milk, beef and lamb, without the use of chemical fertilisers or artificial inputs. The farm is certified organic by the Soil Association and has been run organically since 1996. We have a herd of milking cows, a flock of breeding ewes and a few head of beef cattle.

Visitors are welcome to walk over the farm and see the daily routine of a real working farm which includes the twice-a-day milking of our herd of Ayrshire cows and depending on the time of year, the feeding of calves, lambing and silage or hay-making.

Wildlife abounds on the farm. There are resident badgers, foxes and rabbits as well as buzzards, red kites, herons and kingfishers amongst many other species of indigenous British fauna and flora. In the spring and summer many wildflowers and butterflies are to be found in the hedgerows and banks that run across the farm.

The Teifi Valley is a perfect central area from which to explore the spectacular coastline of Cardigan Bay, the splendid scenery of the Cambrian Mountains and the haunting beauty of the Preseli Hills.

There are many superb castles and ancient sites in the area and the cathedral city of St David ’s is within easy reach.

Penyrallt Home Farm goes back a long way. . .

In 1695 we know that the farm was owned by one Nathan Griffiths who was a major land-owner in the area. At that time the farm was known as Penyrallt Fadog.

The main farmhouse certainly dates from the 17th century and probably much earlier.

The handsome farm buildings, which form the main yard, were built in the middle of the 19th century by Arthur Howell-Jones who bought the farm because his ancestors had lived here in the 18th century. There is a story that he was the first Welshman to go to agricultural college, in Edinburgh and when he came to Penyrallt he built what were for the time, very modern and spacious buildings which are now listed buildings with Cadw, the Welsh equivalent of English Heritage. He is also credited with being the first farmer to make silage in the area in about 1880.

The name of the farm was changed to Penyrallt Home Farm when a large gentleman's residence was built by Arthur Howell Jones in 1868 which he called Penyrallt Fadog.
