    • “A "doggy paradise"”

    • “We spent a week in this charming picturesque cottage and felt we really had had a holiday Cleanliness and decor was excellent. Every possible need was catered for ( there was even a tic remover!!) We had good weather all week. The village location was pretty central for our needs, yet it was very peaceful. We have 2 dogs and they enjoyed their runaround in a very large grassy, secure garden. The owners were very warm and welcoming, and we felt at home straight away. Our intention is to return next year We would highly recommend this holiday haven ( but not on the weeks that we want please!!)”

It was a good base for many enjoyable places and lots of information was available to help decide where to go. Garden for dogs was safe and secure with more space available with their garden with their dogs. A very pleasant holiday.”

About the location


Carmarthen 6 miles.

The village of Bancyfelin is set in beautiful Carmarthenshire countryside and with easy access off the main A40 road to West Wales. The village shop with Post Office is well stocked for all essentials and there's also a family-run pub. Traffic is usually limited to people living in or visiting this scattered village but a few times a year there are busy days when the local Grasstrack Club hold their race meetings, offering a great day out and something a bit different. Located mid way between St. Clears and Carmarthen it's a perfect base for varied shopping and visits to the cinema, Merlin’s Centre and a steam railway ride. A day or evening at the horse racing at Ffos Las where races are held all year are great fun or why not enjoy the magnificent Welsh coastline, offering stunning views of the area. With theme parks, zoos, an array of golf courses and intriguing castles, mills and craft centres in each direction this is a wonderful base for a perfect holiday.
