Reviews

We had an amazing family holiday at Penmaen House. This was a long planned celebration and the house did not disappoint. Lots for the children to do even on wet and windy days. A little cold at times when the wind blew but by snuggling up and lighting the fire the problem was solved. The house has three stair cases and the children had lots of fun playing hide and seek. It has a homely feel and we settled in very quickly. Lovely walks down to amazing beaches which were almost deserted at times. Quite a struggle walking back up the steep sandy paths though so not suitable for anyone with mobility issues. We love the outdoors, views and playing rounders using a piece of drift wood. Penmaen House was the perfect location for us and the dogs. Good value for money for a large family. April 2019
