The Owners Say...

Pencastell takes its name from the Iron Age promontory fort which overlooked Ceibwr Bay from the East. It is hard to date the building itself, but it started life as four terraced cottages, each consisting of a large single room with a hearth or range at one end. Sleeping arrangements were probably a crogloft reached by ladder. Four families would have lived there. They probably worked on local farms and helped with unloading limestone and coal from boats beached in Ceibwr bay.

The original house was built of rubble and was lime-washed. The roof was covered with lime cement. The whole thing would have looked very white. It had about 10 acres of land. Two ancient fields drop down to Ceibwr, Parc Oflaen ty, Parc Bach and Parc Cuareli and the promontory and coastal slope.

The house became one at some stage in the late 1930s.

The 10 acres around Pencastell and a further 40 acres along the coast is managed environmentally for biodiversity. This is mainly done by winter grazing by Welsh Cob mares and Welsh Mountain ponies. The turf is becoming increasingly species rich. Butterflies, moths, bees, hoverflies are all flourishing. The coastal strip is now part of The Cardigan Bay Coastal SSSI.
