Penlan Holiday Village is situated in twenty-four acres of picturesque woodland, parkland and picnic areas just outside of Newcastle Emlyn, south-west Wales. The lodges sleeping between 4 and 6 are based on a Swiss award winning design, making them ideal for family holidays. Penlan is an excellent base for families to explore this very beautiful and unspoilt part of Wales.

The countryside and sandy beaches of West Wales are amongst the very best in the United Kingdom and if you enjoy peace and quiet then this the holiday for you. You can explore the historic castles and market towns, take a boat trip or ride on a steam train, visit local craft workshops, museums and galleries or watch the seals, and occasionally dolphins, in their natural habitat off the Cardigan Bay headlands and beaches. For the young at heart there are adventure, wildlife and theme parks, working farms or pony trekking, fishing, canoeing, biking and golf for the more sporting.
