Penwaun Bach is a detached cottage in an idyllic setting in the beautiful and historic Nevern valley of North Pembrokeshire and within the National Park. It is set in lawned gardens, orchards and paddocks on the banks of the River Nevern, commanding stunning views from the sitting room bay windows & bedroom doors across the wooded valley up the river. A path leads from the cottage through the woods on the riverbank, full of white anemones and bluebells in the spring.
All the gardens and paddock are yours to enjoy and to explore in peace and tranquillity as there are no close neighbours. There’s no need to move from the house windows or garden to watch fascinating wildlife including buzzards, red kites, herons, robins, tits, nuthatches, woodpeckers and sometimes the flash of blue as a kingfisher darts up the river; you may be lucky enough to see otters too.
Nevern has an early Norman Church with a 1,000 year old Celtic cross in its churchyard, an ancient pilgrims’ cross carved into rock, an ancient Castle which is currently being excavated and a friendly pub.
The small town of Newport is two miles away. Newport has all essential shops, the Parrog (the estuary with more wonderful bird life and Newport Boat Club), glorious Newport Sands, tennis courts and a links Golf Course.
There are many other beaches and coves within easy reach.

I have been to Pembrokeshire every single year of my life & love it here more & more every time we come. We sail our little boat out of Newport Pem, walk the coast paths, walk the inland footpaths & by the river, we garden, play golf, tennis & bridge, cycle, ride horses, take photographs and occasionally have time to read a book. I was lucky enough to have been given the cottage by my mother (it had been passed down through many generations before that). Since owning it we have enjoyed making improvements both inside & out hopefully without detracting from its character.
