Penparc cottage was constructed on the edge of Dinefwr Park between 1905 and 1911 and is built in a distinctive style. Originally it was two cottages with walls of snecked masonry of local stone and a hipped terracotta roof. The cottage offers fine views across the valley on one side and into Dinefwr Park on the other, with its interesting eighteenth-century designed landscape and excellent walks. Penparc has its own garden from which to enjoy these wonderful views.

Things to see and do nearby
- South Wales
South Wales is a region rich in natural resources. Beautiful valleys which once saw the growth of some of Britain's greatest industries, offer visitors magnificent scenery and glimpses of the past. Much of the outstanding natural beauty of the area remains untouched. It is a land of contrasts, mountains and moorlands, forest and farmland and magnificent stretches of unspoilt coastline. The National Trust's interests in South Wales include large areas of the Brecon Beacons, Pembrokeshire and Gower, as well as the Dolaucothi Gold Mines, spectacular Aberdulais Falls and the Tudor Merchant's House in Tenby.
- Brecon Beacons
Situated about an hour north of Cardiff, this mountainous region is largely known for its spectacular natural landscapes. And it's true that the peaks of the Beacons and the Black Mountains have views to take your breath away. Climb Pen-y-Fan, the highest peak in South Wales, on a clear day and you'll be able to see as far as the Gower Peninsula to the west and across the lush Usk Valley to the English border to the east. But there's much more on offer than just walking: market towns such as Brecon and Llandeilo, the Trust's own Dolaucothi Gold mines and Dinefwr Park and Castle.
