Interaction with guestsI always endeavour to greet guests and spend time with you to familiarise you with cottage layout and appliances etc. If needed I can advise you on places to visit and good eating destinations, or events that you might otherwise miss . I live on site so am mostly here to answer any queries or troubleshoot any problems you have so you need never feel a stranger in our valley! However, should you wish to be left totally alone, (as long as your behaviour is not intrusive to us) we respect that too. I am just a text away normally.

Perfect for quiet & tranquility, central for surrounding locations to visit
What can I say - what a fab find (look at their website for more details) - this is a 5 star coverted barn in a beautiful rural setting..... well equipped, homely, a definate sun trap, clean, warm, relaxing & tranquil.... Nikki is very welcoming, very knowledgeable & experienced for places to see/visit & on hand if needed. We all (my grandchildren and I) enjoyed our stay thoroughly and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again, if we ever visit the south again....Loved the 'kites' flying overhead, the swallows/housemartins (wasn't sure which they were) dancing in the early mornings and evenings, the roasting of marshmallows in the evenings, the 'cuppa' in the sunrise of tranquil countryside..... We would highly recommend this cottage for a few days or a couple of weeks - we were sad to leave the 'stress free' holiday.....

Short break
This is just the best place to stay. The whole cottage is 5 star, there is absolutely not a thing out of place. The Owner Nicki was fantastic, full of ideas of where to visit in the local area. The cottage is in a quiet rural setting with lovely views of the countryside. We can't wait to visit again in the Spring/Summertime to able to benefit from the patio area. Well worth a visit

Brilliant
I've stayed at Red Kite cottage, both in the main and small cottage many times and the accommodation is second to none, it is absolutely perfect. The facilities are excellent as is the welcome from the host Nikki, who is a lovely person and a font of all knowledge for local walks and where to eat in the area, especialy her knowledge of wine is exceptional! The views from the cottage are amazing over ther tranquil valley and as the name suggests there are a number of Red Kites that regularly soar and ride the thermals, giving a spectacular airial display. I'd recommend this as the perfect holiday get away/hide away from it all.

Wonderful mini break
We stayed in Redkite cottage at the beginning of January, and were very pleased; as it was exceptionally clean, warm,cosy and spacious. I would highly recommend this well looked after cottage to travellers exploring Carmarthenshire.

Fabulous stay
Nikki is a great host with a lovely cottage in a rural area. The views are amazing. Listening to the birds ands cows so relaxing. It was great listening to silage time in the distance. The cottage has everything and more you could ever wish for. Home from home. Nikki has so much knowledge of the area to help you make the most of your holiday.

Map
About the neighbourhood
With Carmarthen just 3 miles away there are some lovely independent eateries as well as the usual chains and takeaways, but I can also recommend several gastro /family pubs and fine dining locations within a few miles in local villages. There is a local shop /garage/ post office within a mile which I personally use daily rather than visiting the supermarkets in town. You can walk in the fresh Carmarthenshire air in several directions straight from the door, or I can point you in the direction for coastal and forest walks within a 15 -20 drive
Access
Car advised
How to get there
Carmarthen is 11 miles further along the A48 at the end of the M4 from the East, South and Midlands of England. It is also easily reached via teh A40 serving mid wales and routes from the North approach peniel via the A485 Lampeter road. The main road A485 is 1 mile away from the cottage and has an hourly bus service to town and up to Aberystwyth most weekdays. Taxis are available from Carmarthen Trai Station and the town
