Property Description

Pentre Bach is the home of the well known Welsh children’s character ’Sali Mali’ and her friends, and this is where the TV series and books are based. Each of the 3 holiday cottages is themed and is the ’home’ of one of the characters from the stories. The name ’Pentre Bach’ means ’little village’ and has been created on the owner’s farm. This magical setting is a big hit with families with children, each cottage is decorated and furnished in keeping with the characters. W42763 is ’The Butterfly Hotel’ with pink painted walls and butterfly stencils. W42765 has a football theme and W42764 has unusual bric-a-brac and novelties. There is a gift shop on site (with wi-fi available), you can book a tea party for the children and order cakes or seasonal home grown produce can be delivered to your front door. The cottages (refs W42763, W42764 and W42765) have been awarded 4 stars by the Welsh Tourist Board since opening in 2005 and they may be booked individually or together. The area itself has lots to offer, including fantastic walks around the nearby Cambrian Mountains and Cors Caron Nature Reserve, which offer breathtaking views across the magnificent scenery, where buzzards and red kites soar high. The area is considered as a natural playground for ramblers, mountain bikers and climbers alike, with lots of Iron Age settlements dotted around the county. Away from the countryside, Ceredigion’s coast is just as promising, where the picturesque harbour towns of New Quay and Aberaeron offer irresistible restaurants, boutique shopping and unblemished beaches, where bottlenose dolphins and seals may be seen on a clear day! Pentre Bach is close to the coastal path and beaches of Cardigan Bay. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Fantastic place to take the children. Multitude of activities on site and the house had a vast selection of toys too. Even though the weather was poor we had an excellent time and are planning to return next year. Never stayed in such well resourced kitchen - fridge, freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher. Owners couldn’t have been more welcoming. April 2012.
  2. Amazingly well equipped child friendly cottage, we were met by the owner Adrian on arrival who gave us a tour round the cottage and explained heating etc, he was very friendly and helpful. Although the weather was awful our 2 year old was never bored due to the amount of toys, books and games in the cottage, she loved her bedroom which was attached to our room. we had a most enjoyable bank holiday weekend! Aug 2011.
  3. A very warm welcome, 14 miles from Aberaron which is quite a rocky/pebble beach but lovely still the same. Quite good for a base. We didnt really spend a lot of time at the cottage as the weather was really good and we went to the beach. The accommodation was a bit cluttered for my liking as it has been used for a childrens TV programme in the past, maybe they could put some of the mops and mice and cats away while guests are staying there (sorry!) My daughter thought it was cute though as she is only 7, so ideal if you have little kids as there are certainly lots of toys to play with. The owners were really nice and thoughtful and cant fault the idea of a little village with the little play shops etc. June 2011.
  4. Although this was set up for children we were the only guests there as it was early in the season, we had a great time. The hosts were very pleasant and gave us talk about the centre, this would be a great place for children during summer season, and we would return again out of season. Accommodation was excellent, plus watching new born lambs was a treat. Weather exceeded expectations. March 2011.
  5. This was by far the most family friendly property we have ever stayed in. The grounds were very safe and child friendly, and the property owners couldn’t have been more friendly. The property was equipped to a standard you wouldn’t really expect from a holiday rental, and it was absolutely spotless. We will definitely book here again!!! Feb 2011.
  6. This is an absolutely magical and wonderful place - with a lovely warm welcome - superb for kids! As we say in Wales - Ardderchog! Feb 2011.
