Description from owner


You would be most welcome to enjoy a relaxing break in the nature-rich woods in a lovely comfortable chalet in West Wales.

Our family lodge sleeps up to 6 people. You can bring your pet too at no extra charge (make sure you inquire about this when booking). The wooden Swiss-chalet type lodge has three bedrooms. The master bedroom has a double bed. The second and third bedrooms have a single bed with a slide out bed which can be used as twins or a double bed, these single beds are 2ft wide. The lodge is suitable for a maximum of 4 adults and 1 child, 3 adults and 2 children, or 2 adults and 4 children.

There is a well-equipped kitchen with gas cooker, fridge/freezer, and microwave. This is complimented by a lovely lounge with dining area. A bathroom with shower completes the indoor accommodation. The lounge area has a widescreen television complete with freeview and a DVD player. The large decking area outside adds additional living space which is perfect for barbeques, or simply relaxing on the table and chair set whilst you watch the squirrels and varied bird life.

Taking time out means that you want to relax and enjoy yourselves in the beautiful surrounding area. This part of West Wales is stunning and unspoilt, with some beautiful coastline and countryside to enjoy. The chalet is situated close to the coast, with several beaches all no more than half an hours drive away, and there is a distinct Welsh flavour both to the language you will hear, and the local food you can enjoy.

If you are feeling more adventurous then there are plenty of opportunities for this as well, with many nearby outdoor activities.


PENLAN HOLIDAY VILLAGE; about the site itself........

It is set on a large woodland site with approximately 90 other privately owned well-spaced lodges (forget Butlins entirely!) and is very peaceful, with many varieties of bird life and squirrels too.

Our Torwood lodge is one of the biggest styles. It is a lovely green site, with the lodges built interspersed with trees throughout. There is a tourist information room with leaflets; a bar serving drinks and reasonable meals in season; an outdoor heated swimming pool open in the summer season; a small site shop; a children's play ground with swings, slides and climbing frame; and a dog walking area. A pet is welcome.

The coast is a 20-minute drive away, and the spectacular Cenarth waterfalls are just down the road.


A single dog is welcome at no extra charge, but for hygiene reasons not in the bedrooms. If you wish to bring more than one dog, please contact us directly for details regarding this.

There are coin-operated washing and drying machines on site, and we have some drying facilities in the lodge.

Just returned from a very quiet week at Penlan, the cabin was really clean and well equipped.The staff were friendly. My only niggle was the uncertainty of whether we could sit and have a drink/meal with our dogs(2). The notice on the door said no dogs, but was removed the day before we left, on asking staff wasn't sure, we would of eaten here as a family alot over the week but didn't want to leave the dogs unattended. Some really lovely beaches in a short drive, but check the restrictions first for your dogs. Like I said only a niggle, overall we enjoyed the peaceful location.

“Peaceful cabin in beautiful Welsh county's ide.”

Reviewed 16 Jul 2017

What an amazing holiday my family and I enjoyed here. The site is traditional with no gimmicks so right up our street. The outdoor pool was well used by us and our 2 girls loved it. There is a lovely little park that has all any little boy or girl needs to entertain them. The cabin was lovely 2 smallish twin rooms and a good sized double. The kitchen was brilliantly equipped and we didn't use any of the items we had taken because of this. Really spacious living/dining area with a great sized television. If you want great phone signal this is not the site for you but if you want to enjoy quality family time without the hassle of constant interruption from Facebook, emails and messages this is perfect. We met a wonderful lady who owns another property on site and will look at renting that Challet next time. The Cardigan Bay area is only 7 miles away and Aberaeron, New Quay are must sees. We visited the steam railway going from Aberystwyth to Devils Bridge. If you have small children or just want a relaxing ride with breathtaking views this is for you. From the beaches to the local people Camarthenshire is just wonderful a place We will hold dear. A fantastic cabin to explore from that has all any family would require for a week or 2 away. Can't wait to go again xxx

“Fabulous log cabin”

Reviewed 17 Apr 2017

The cabin was tucked away in a secluded and quiet spot. We were able to park the car very close, and a new path lead up to the cabin which let us avoid muddy shoes! The cabin itself was spotless and all home comforts provided! The owner has obviously dedicated time to decorating this gorgeous cabin- two huge comfy sofas, wide screen tv and a great bathroom with power shower! Outside there is a decked patio area with a BBQ, table and chairs and pot plants-a lovely spot to enjoy a quiet drink listening to bird song! There is a welcome pack which explains how to use the gas fire etc and also provides information about the local area. It's a fabulous cabin and we are looking forward to returning soon!

Owner's reply: Many thanks for your booking and great review, glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope to welcome you back in the future.

“Lovely place and lovely people”

Lovely and peaceful place to stay. The lodge was very roomy, clean and in a fantastic location. Heated pool on site, shop, park and club. Andy behind the bar very cheery , they have a big screen in the club for the kids to watch a film at night. Also the food in the restaurant very good and a good price. I would definitely stay here again .
