Old Stone Farmhouse in West Wales

Bed & Breakfast - Private room · Rhosygadair Uchaf, Penparc, Wales SA43 1RN, United Kingdom

Our farmhouse is almost 200 years old. We are in a quiet spot yet nestled between Aberporth on the coast and Cardigan with all the amenities. A great location for walking the coastal path or visiting some of the best beaches in West Wales.

The Space

The house is on a quiet 8 acre small holding near the beautiful coastline of West Wales. 3 miles to Cardigan and about a 40 minute drive to the Ferry to Ireland at Fishguard. Cardigan has a Aldi, a Tesco, and Co-op supermarket A few miles to 6 beautiful sand beaches, two that are National Trust. Our local beach is Mwnt, listed as No. 1 in the Daily Mail's list in the Top Ten: Europe's Secret Beaches. You can easily walk to the Ceredigion Coastal Path. There is a small bedroom with 2 single beds, another small one with a double bed, and a larger one with a King Size bed. Two bathrooms (one for exclusive use by guests) and a shower in an outbuilding if you hate baths and want an invigorating experience. We have our own eggs if you like a big breakfast.

It is a 15 minute walk to the local bus stops if you are using public transport. In the summer and selected days in the winter there is the Cardi Bach, a small bus that serves the Coastal Path so you only need to walk one way. The Cardi Bach bus stop in Felinwynt is close to our drive. Closest train stations are Carmarthen or Aberystwyth. If you come by bus, happy to pick you up in Cardigan. If you like to cycle, we usually have a bike you can borrow. Plenty of good places to eat nearby and if you are on a tight budget you can cook in the kitchen. In season you can see what vegetables we have in the garden.

If the dates you want are booked, contact us we may have another bedroom available.

One of the most popular trips in Cardigan is a boat trip called Bay to Remember-On most trips you will see dolphins, seals and plenty of bird life. We have arranged a 10% discount on this trip if you chose to stay with us.

As a side note, all money we earn from airbnb goes to a building fund so we can convert one of the stone barns into a holiday home for families who have a disabled child. I work at a charity for disabled children and our youngest daughter (now 21) has a disability.

Guest Access

Guests are welcome to use the kitchen and the washing machine and dryer. Guests are also encouraged to make themselves at home.

Interaction with Guests

We are usually at home. Our daughter (22) is also living here. We are usually around as we need to care for the horses and chickens.

The Neighborhood

We live in a rural location although there is a convenience shop 2 miles away. You can walk to the coastal path from our house.

Getting around

There is a bus stop via a footpath (10-15 minute walk) for an hourly daily service. When the Coastal bus is running, that makes 4 stops a day near the top of our drive.

  • We visited Renie and Alex for 3 days (myself, my partner and my father). Dad was visiting from Australia, and I wanted to show him what Wales had to offer. What an amazing experience! It felt like a home away from home, and our hosts were amazing, for chats, guides for what to do locally (including climbing Mwnt), and for their amazing breakfasts - no, I can't decide who was better! We went with the main idea being to find a place to relax and unwind - we found that - and much, much more. A brilliant place, brilliant people (including the rest of the clan - animals included), and somewhere I will definitely find an excuse to go back and visit... The welcome and the farewell will be something I'll remember for a very long time to come.. Do yourself a favour, and visit this spot, and these lovely people.

  • "There are places I remember all my life..." We knew the moment we met Renie and Alex at their magnificent old stone farmhouse that we were in for a memorable weekend. Staying with them was a gift to our hearts and minds. Not only are they the most gracious of hosts, they made sure my daughter and I were well cared for. They made delicious and hearty breakfasts of fresh eggs, ham, wonderful coffee and cream, waffles and syrup...so that we were set for a day's outing on the coast of West Wales, Aberporth, Tresaith, and Penbryn...a glorious trek that may have changed our lives forever...We will go back, yes, again and again....next year and the year after that...We loved our stay and we love them both, we loved meeting their daughters Alyssa and Laura, the horses Jack and Levi, little Toulouse, and of course the house itself...warm, comfortable in every way...especially the lit fire in the woodstove in the evenings..(thank you, Alex) the (email hidden)e peace and sweet restfulness of just being there. This was a weekend like none other we have ever had. Go there....

  • I had a beautiful stay! I found the family very inspiring. I believe that sometimes you are sent to places for a reason in your life and meeting this couple was a real blessing.

  • It was a great stay at this Old Stone Farmhouse with our hosts Alex and Renie. We had amazing breakfast and really nice chat with the owners. We enjoyed our stay there and I can imagine to come back. West Wales is a nice place not only for a weekend.

  • Alex and Renie, along with their daughter Alissa, warmly welcomed us into their home -and it truly WAS a home. The beds were amazing, breakfast lovely, area fantastic and the use of kitchen much appreciated. We loved chatting with these interesting people by their cosy fire. Would definitely recommend a stay, and hope to return one day!! Thank you

  • Lovely and very warm place in Wales run by fantastic people!
    I would recommend to everyone, especially to those who love trekking. Area is awesome and Alex & Rennie will give you some good advises and show you paths which you wouldn't find by yourself.

  • We had a super overnight stop in a really welcoming family home. The rooms were of a really high standard and very comfy. My children and I felt really welcome by the hosts. I can't recommend this highly enough. A beautiful setting tucked away near the coast. There is soon to be a holiday let next door, I can't wait to book it for next year with my whole family.

  • I traveled to Wales, and to the old stonehouse farm in Felinwynt, on a whim and it turned out to be one of the highlights of my trip to the UK. Traveling by public transport (train to Carmarthen, bus to Cardigan) I was a bit concerned about getting out to the farm. Alex and Renie arranged transport and the whole family welcomed me (Alissa, Deb, Jess and Toulouse the lovely toy poodle). The house is magical and the room is lovely. Alex and Renie went out of their way to make my stay special: providing me with walking sticks for the muddy coastal path, ensuring I had proper maps so I wouldn't get lost, assisting me with planning walking trips from their house or via the Cardi Bach ( a great local bus that runs along the coast), and making amazing hearty breakfasts to start me on my day. On the one day when rain and winds kept me indoors, it was great to curl up in front of the fire and relax in the comfort of their wonderful company. Special treats are homemade coffee ice cream, french toast, and feeling as if this is not an Air BnB but a place like home. If you are traveling to Wales (and even if you are just thinking about traveling to Wales) this is a wonderful location to explore the coastline and stay with a welcoming and caring family.

  • Once upon a time, on a stormy, stormy night, not so long ago, two weary travellers arrived at an old stone farmhouse in deepest darkest welsh Wales and were greeted by perfect hosts, they loved the dodgy zombie horror movies and the coffee ice cream, both home made! They slept well in a really comfortable oak bed, homemade too and ate a hearty breakfast and left refreshed and happy.
    All Thanks To Alex and Renie xxx
    PS I'm just not quite sure that everyone gets out alive................
    Dare you risk it?

    Response from Alex & Renie:

    Never had a review like Andy's. We can reassure you that we have not lost a guest in the years we have been airbnb hosts:-)

  • Alex & Renie were wonderful hosts. They made us feel very at home, and the house was great. The breakfast was amazing too. The only shame is that we couldn't stay for longer. Would highly recommend!

About
After almost all the children left home (we have 9 of them) we wanted to share our home with others. Sometimes they come back so it can be a busy household at times. Originally from the USA, we have been in Britain since 1980. When our youngest was born with a disability, our life direction changed. We moved to Wales in 1997. I love my work at a charity for disabled children. We also are involved in disabled skiing. The best part about Airbnb is we have met so many great people. We have met so many interesting and lovely people through hosting with airbnb. It has been good fun and a good excuse to keep the house tidy. We like walking and cycling and exploring all the beautiful parts of the UK.
