Penbryn is owned by the National Trust. The beach is almost a mile in length. There is a turning circle and dropping off point at the beach edge for disabled visitors, which should be kept clear for any emergency vehicles. Penbryn is about 9 miles north of Cardigan. There is a car park on Llanborth Farm as you arrive, some 400 metres from the beach. The National Trust charge a small fee for parking.
There’s also a cafe and shop here with outdoor and indoor seating. The walk down to the beach is either on the lane, or follow the footpath signs from the back of the car park [behind the café] which takes you into a beautiful wooded valley, full of wood anemones in the spring. This shady path suddenly opens up to the wide expanse of the beach and the sound of the waves, a lovely approach to the beach.
