The Boathouse Holiday Cottage in St Dogmaels
An old boathouse at the water’s edge, beautifully converted into a romantic cottage making an ideal retreat for two overlooking the Teifi Estuary. Set in the grounds of the owners’ home, Penally House, on the riverbank, approximately 2 miles from Poppit Sands and the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path, it is a birdwatchers paradise. Renovated and comfortably furnished in a stylish mix of antique and contemporary pieces reflecting its nautical history and close proximity to the water. It provides a home of atmosphere and charm especially for two. The open plan living space has a newly fitted kitchen area with practical, quality laminate flooring throughout, one step down leads to the comfortable lounge with leather sofas to cosy up on chillier evenings, French doors open to your own small paved patio, ideal for enjoying a glass of wine as you soak up the super views over the Teifi River. Steps lead to an elevated balcony with really stunning views over the waterway where you can sit and watch the world go by. There are lots to see and do in the area, spend your days walking the river bank, visit the local watermill or take a trip into the historic town of Cardigan with its excellent theatre, farmer’s market and specialist shops. A boat trip around Cardigan Bay to see the resident Bottlenose Dolphins, Porpoises and Grey Seals should not be missed. While there is a choice of shops, pubs and a highly recommended fish ‘n’ chip shop within walking distance in St Dogmaels itself to enjoy.

What a lovely find! We have been to Wales many times but never to this part and will definitely be returning. The 'Boathouse' is ideal so homely with everything we needed. the location is perfect, what a pleasure to sit outside each evening with a glass of wine. We visited the places previously mentioned so chose to mention some that were not. Newport is a lovely little place with a small antique shop with loads of old books and trinkets. St Davids is so lovely-the abbey and Cathedral make it picture perfect. Walking along parts of the Pembrokeshire Coast path the views are stunning-but particularly love Ceibwr Bay and Devils Cauldron (if you aren't afraid of heights and cliff edges) Whitesands also lovely, too many to mention!! Had a brilliant week.
