Sarnau is a village that straddles the A487 road, midway between Cardigan and Aberaeron, in Ceredigion, Wales.
Amenities in the village include the Sarnau Memorial Hall, the Sarnau Army Surplus Store, the Penmorfa Methodist Chapel, and the Llwynhelyg Farm Shop on the village outskirts. There are several campsites nearby and one mile to the east is the village of Brynhoffnant where you will find a pub and a garage with an excellent small supermarket.
Penmorfa Methodist Chapel was built in 1796, rebuilt in 1846 and again in 1939. Penmorfa is now Grade 2 listed as a fine and rare example of a 1939 interior.
