Penmynydd Uchaf is a secluded, rustic stone cottage. Surrounded by almost 5 acres of its own garden and fields. It includes a breathtaking panoramic coastline view from which, on a clear day, you can even see the coast of Ireland. This gem of a ‘house in the hills’ is nearly 900ft above sea level, although still less than an 8-minute drive (2.4 miles) from the picturesque village of Cwm-yr-Eglwys and its beautiful beach. With the village of Dinas Cross and the fabulous 1.5-mile long Newport Sands only a matter of minutes away, we can offer you a holiday cottage which combines the perfect getaway with easy access to everything you might need.
This gorgeous cottage, in its own private garden and with amazing sea views, is a peaceful, secluded retreat which you will relax into from the moment you arrive. Each room has been decorated to the highest standard, enhancing the original features with up-to-date appeal and all the luxury of home comforts. Furnished throughout with locally-sourced antiques and quality modern pieces, the cottage’s homely feel is enriched with original local artists’ work covering the walls.
You can enter the property directly into a boot room which includes a sink ideal for cleaning up after the muddier walks. Here you can kick off your boots, hang-up your exploring attire and even rub down your dog. The underfloor heating will keep your feet warm, whatever the weather.
From here you enter the spacious but cosy sitting room with a large sofa, cheerful log-burning stove, widescreen TV with Sky HD box, WiFi, and a Blu-Ray DVD player.
At one end of the sitting room, the door leads you straight into the kitchen and you will be instantly drawn to the west-facing window with its panoramic sea views. You will be greeted by our welcome pack, which includes a bottle of red & white wine plus a range of locally-sourced and organic treats. Fitted out with a range of wooden units, a large Range cooker and a solid farmhouse-style table, this luxurious kitchen will make you feel immediately at home. We always strive to make your stay at our cottages as comfortable as possible, and have taken great care to provide everything we can think of, including some of our favourite cookery books. As at each of our properties, there are all the washing and drying facilities you could need during your stay, as well as a double-fronted American-style fridge freezer with ice-maker.
Through the sitting room and up a further 6 steps is a bathroom with bath and power shower, WC and hand basin. On your left is “the snug”, this 2nd sitting room is an ideal place to relax and have time to yourself. Up 2 more steps you find yourself in the downstairs bedroom with a king-sized bed and ample storage space. With enchanting views over the garden and original prints and paintings on the walls, this bedroom boasts an impressive solid wooden king-sized bed with a deep mattress, white linen and a luxurious pure cotton throw, offering a warm welcome each night or a cosy place for a lie-in in the mornings.
Upstairs there are two further spacious and welcoming bedrooms, and a family bathroom. The quality of the decor and homely touches continue throughout each beautifully laid-out room, both of which also have solid wooden bedsteads with superbly comfortable mattresses, crisp white sheets and luxurious pure cotton throws. The larger bedroom (with its own TV) has a king-sized bed. The third bedroom has a double bed and full-sized bunk beds, as well as its own WC and hand basin. Both have plenty of hanging space and panoramic coast and sea views.
This is, irrefutably, a rambler’s haven, a place for family bonding time, another dimension to a child’s education. A quiet retreat, and somewhere to recharge your batteries – you Experience Môr than you might expect here at Penmynydd Uchaf!
Approached by half a mile of private drive, this tranquil property is just over 4 miles from the coastal town of Newport with its first-class shops, pubs and restaurants. Particularly popular with our guests is the award-winning butcher’s shop T.G. Davies & Sons and the wide variety of excellent eating-places such as Llys Meddyg, The Golden Lion and The Canteen, most of which are dog friendly and welcome families for both lunch and dinner. The village of Cwm-yr-Eglwys, only 2.4 miles away, offers a picturesque sand-and-shingle cove with rock pools at low tide. On the beach front there is the end wall of a chapel, the remainder having been washed away by storms in 1859. With dogs welcome all year round, both Cwm-yr-Eglwys and Newport Sands are just waiting for your visit!

Had a lovely holiday, one of the best in this beautiful part of the world. Can't beat the view and the sunsets
Wonderful stay in Penmynydd Uchaf, the views, garden and countryside location were as expected and more. House is well stocked with anything you would need. Bath robes and towels were very helpful. Extra freezer was also very much appreciated. Looking forward to visiting again!
An awesome host, house and view. Our stay stay was superb. Lovely weather and days out exploring beautiful Pembrokeshire. Thank you Jonty and Talley (J's 18 month old black lab who adopted us) 1
- “This was our first visit to Penmynydd Uchaf and we absolutely loved it. With its fantastic views and beautiful location we couldn’t have wanted more. The house was stunning, very well equipped and very very clean. The only thing we didn’t like was that we had to leave! We will most definitely be visiting again and we hope to visit one of Jonty’s other properties in the very near future. Thanks for the memories Jonty.”
Had the most amazing time - that good we even extended our stay by 2 nights! We certainly had the best experience with Jonty & Dan, both top boys. Loved taking Talley (Jonty's young lab) with our 2 on beaches. We will be back!!
Great relax. Peaceful house, total switch off. Newport so unspoilt. Thank you for wine etc, hope to see you again!
A wonderful stay in your beautiful cottage with stunning views. A relaxing, warm environment. Tastefully restored. Thank you!
