Approached half a mile from the Village of Cribyn, along a very quiet unclassified road,
down a private drive of aproximately 300 yards it is completely secluded but not isolated.
Nearest neighbours are Tan-y-Bryn (under the hill) at the top of the drive a rarely occupied holiday home owned by a retired couple from Hampshire. Penwern Mills & Bryn Awel - accross the field from the North West corner of the Old Woollen Mill or along the road a few hundred yards towards the village. These cottages were the Mill owner;s dwelling when it was a working Mill (up to 1953) occupied now by Mike (Bryn Awel) a farmer;s son and Landscape Gardener, and Alban & Delyth (Penwern Mills) retired Electricity worker and Headmistress , Delyth;s family were the Mill owners when it was a working Mill. There are no other houses until you get to the village itself.
Uphill, behind, accross the road & accross a large field from the Old Woollen Mill is Penbryn Farm, a very tidy sheep farm. Glyn, Joyce and Annie are very friendly and helpful. Turning left out of the drive 600 yards along the road, with the beautiful Bluebell wood on the right is Pandy, formerly a Carding House for the Mill now home to Lindsey, Jason & Rowan, very friendly family, Jason is a builder/plumber and did most of the work at the Old Woollen Mill to an excellent standard. Opposite Lindsey & Jasons; little blue Cottage is Troed-y Bryn Trout Lakes, these beautiful lakes border the stream and are surrounded by trees, they are very picturesque and attract Canada Geese and wild ducks.Les & Eiry are also very welcoming and helpfull neighbours.
At the top of the fields accross the stream from the Mill is a public footpath which will take you along a delightful old track, left to the Cribyn-Cwrtnewydd road or right brings you out further along the road from the top of the drive to the west.
This road takes you on to Troed-y-Rhiw (1 mile)and the villages of Dihewyd (3 miles) Mydroilyn (4 miles) Llanarth and towards New Quay (11 miles) and Aberaeron ( 12 miles) both are very pretty Georgian Harbour towns with safe, dog friendly, sandy beaches dotted along the unspoilt coastline.
