 A Special Place  

Penbryn is a Very Small Hamlet on the coast of Ceredigion that usually only features on well detailed maps, with just a handful of spread out character stone dwellings and an ancient church (one of the oldest in Wales). Penbryn's natural beauty is yet to be discovered by many and its position at the head of the beautiful unspoilt Penbryn Beach makes it an ideal holiday base.


Penbryn is Part of the Ceredigion Marine Heritage Coast the first area to be established in Britain to recognise the unspoilt nature of the coastline and its wildlife.The local Bottlenose dolphins are very special and Cardigan Bay is one of only two areas in UK waters hosting a resident population of bottlenose dolphins (the other is found in Scotland) and there are few areas where they are more easily seen in the wild. A really uplifting sight.


Penbryn Beach the Sky at Night - as well as being a fabulous place for observing beautiful sunsets it is also a great place for star gazing and trying to catch the sight of spectacular meteor showers. Penbryn Beach is recommended by the National Trust as a great stargazing spot. The Guardian Newspaper rates Penbryn Beach as one of theTop10 National Trust UK walks and the best for star gazing.
