Penmaen House is in a fantastic location. It’s dog friendly. Our spaniels loved running around the grounds. It’s a real slice of country living from the Aga to the wood burners. The kitchen is dominated by a huge table that seats at least 10 and we really enjoyed eating our meal there and then flopping into one of the many comfy chairs in the huge sitting room with a great view of the bay. The pool has its own mezzanine seating area that our family also enjoyed. All in all a lovely comfortable place to spend some time.

Mrs I,

Use the swimming pool as much as possible--it's lovely

Mr S,
