We wanted somewhere to get away with our three children and as we had never been to the area before and like new places we decided to try South Wales and booked this cottage for a 9 day break. It is very rural and surrounded by open countryside and fields, but the shops in Carmarthen are only six miles so very convenient if you want to stock up on a big shop or pick up anything you forgot! There are a wide range of shops and parking is easy.
There is a large wind turbine on the property which the kids were fascinated by, there is no mistaking which way the wind is blowing here! The cottage is very convenient for a larger family as it has two sitting rooms. The kitchen is also large and well equipped, and there is a handy utility room with original salting troughs - great to see original features still in situ and this cottage has lots of them which is why it is so full of character! The main sitting room has a fantastic inglenook fireplace which was wonderful to curl up by in the evenings.
For rainy days there is a games room with pool table, table football etc which is very useful if you have teenagers who not used to the lack of WiFi! The bedrooms are spacious and the beds have memory foam mattresses. The whole cottage was well decorated and spotlessly clean.
An ideal location if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle, but still want the convenience of local facilities. Great local pubs with excellent food in the area and the coast is just a short drive away if you fancy a stroll on the sandy beaches. Lots of castles in the area to explore as well.
The owner was friendly, responsive and easy to book with so I am happy to highly recommend this property.
Stayed at this gorgeous cottage February 2013. The cottage was immaculate when we arrived. Plenty of room. My dog had a blast running on the grounds. Bedrooms are an excellent size and very comfy beds. Only 10/15 min drive into carmarthen where supermarkets and plenty of other shops and restaurants are to be found. Peaceful place in the country. Returning again in December. Cant wait. Cant recommend enough.
