The property

From the moment you set your eyes on this delightful Burry Port cottage, you will be delighted to have found such a gem for your holiday.

Set high above the town in a quiet location, yet within walking distance of the shops, pubs and beautiful harbour and beach, this superb Burry Port holiday cottage oozes charm and sophistication.

Step inside and discover the wonderful kitchen with its warming woodburner, range cooker and large dining table, which undoubtedly make this room the heart of this Burry Port holiday home.

Down a few steps you will discover the snug with another cosy woodburner and double sofa bed; offering both flexible accommodation and also a place to escape to when you want to relax and unwind in the glow of the roaring fire.

Across the hallway is the spacious sitting room, again with a woodburner, where all the family can watch TV or just sit and relax after great days out exploring the area or playing on the beach.

The four bedrooms in this Burry Port cottage are all exquisitely decorated and furnished, each with their own individual style, with the master bedroom boasting an en-suite shower room and a fantastic view to the sea, while the bathroom has a claw-footed bath and is beautifully decorated to offer a touch of luxury to your holiday.

Patio doors from the kitchen, and a door from the snug, lead onto a secluded and sheltered patio with stone steps leading up through a banked garden area which even has its own cave, a small hollowed out area in the rock, great for enjoying the garden views with a morning coffee.

Raised, enclosed, decked patios offer the most wonderful views over the town and to the sea where alfresco dining and BBQs will be an absolute must.

For the younger ones, the tiered lawned areas at the other side of the house provide plenty of space to play.

The sandy beach, harbour and Millennium Cycle Path are about a 15 minute walk from this Burry Port cottage, or you can take a trip to Pembrey Beach or the horse racing at nearby Ffos Las.

Shopping, cafes, restaurants, a cinema or theatre visit can all be found in Carmarthen, as can Merlin's Hill Centre and a steam railway ride.

Whatever the time of year and whatever age you are, this beautiful Burry Port holiday cottage makes a perfect base for exploring this part of South Wales, and you will want to return time and again.
