The Hop Shack is a cosy, quirky upcycled caravan, converted and situated on Penybanc Farm, a 40 acre organic smallholding where the counties of Carmarthenshire, Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion meet, close to the river Teifi and only 25 to 30 minutes from the coast. It's ideal for a short break in rural surroundings for two couples or for a family, a maximum of 5 people.

The Hop Shack is light, simply furnished and well-insulated and has electricity and an efficient wood burner. It has a lovely wooden veranda with great views and is located beyond the farm buildings looking up the hill, with sight of garden, meadow and willow plantation.

The local village and its two pubs are within walking distance (1 - 2 miles), as is the National Woollen Museum of Wales. Llandysul Paddlers canoeing centre on the River Teifi at Llandysul is less than 4 miles away.

Art workshops and organic veg boxes can be pre-booked, also on-site reflexology treatments now available from an experienced, qualified and insured therapist. Treatments need to be pre-booked with the owner. We can also offer guiding and bike maintenance/repair. There is a bike skills park onsite; book in advance for training in BMX and mountain biking techniques while you are here.

When staying in The Hop Shack, you can either use it as a base to explore locally or just escape from the world; in winter snuggle up by the wood burner and watch the stars on clear nights from the veranda. Your closest neighbours will be the donkeys, Honey and Treacle.


The Hop Shack sleeps 5 in two simple but comfortable double bedded rooms. There is room for a low single bed or travel cot in one of the bedrooms.

Bedroom 1: double bed
Bedroom 2: double bed and single bed, accessed both from Bedroom 1 - (there's an interconnecting door with a bolt on either side at high level) - and from the verandah
Shower room 1: shower, wash basin and toilet
Shower room 2: shower, wash basin
Separate toilet

Open plan living area: settee, dining table for 4/5, kitchen area with fridge and gas cooker


There is quite a high step up to the veranda leading to the stable door entrance but we do have a separate ramp from the grass in front of the verandah. The woodfired hot tub can be booked for your exclusive use for an evening by arrangement with the owners, but it is on a first come, first served basis, and is subject to a separate fee.
