The Property

Situated in one of the almost forgotten seaside villages of Ferryside on this part of the wonderful Welsh coast, is this well-appointed, end-terrace cottage, which is a perfect base for your family holiday. Set on a hill with views over the beautiful beach and estuary from two bedrooms and the garden, this superb Ferryside cottage is an absolute delight to stay in. With a front porch leading into a spacious hallway and also a side entrance leading into a rear hallway, guests who have spent an enjoyable day on the beach can easily discard the sand, buckets and spades, and even surf boards, before entering this beautiful cottage. The light and airy sitting room at this cottage near Ferryside has a dining area and a cosy woodburner to warm you after a brisk walk on the beach, plus the modern, fitted kitchen is well-equipped for the cooks in your party to prepare some great family meals. You may well spend your complete holiday in the property and its pretty garden and venture only to the local pub, shop and, of course, the lovely beach. If you do want more, this perfect part of Wales has so much to offer - you will be spoilt for choice. With shopping, a steam train ride, Merlin’s Hill Centre, an array of eating places and a cinema and theatre in nearby Carmarthen, it is a great day out either by road or on the train.

About the location

FERRYSIDE

Carmarthen 10 miles.

Ferryside is a pretty coastal village with a wonderful sandy beach, a general store, cafe, Post Office and pub. Regular trains stop in the village offering easy travel to Carmarthen, Pembrey or Llanelli and many more attractions further afield. Carmarthen is a busy market town with a variety of shops, tea rooms, restaurants and pubs. A visit to Pembrey Country Park, with its sandy beach, toboggan run and dry ski slope, is a great day out for all the family, as is a day at Merlin's Hill Centre, shrouded in mystery and rich in wildlife. There are castles, craft centres and mills galore, all in easy reach, whilst a visit to Laugharne to see Dylan Thomas' Boat House, or a day out at Oakwood Theme Park or Folly Farm, are a must. With walks from the doorstep and the cycle trail at the Millennium Coastal Path close by, this is as perfect a base for a relaxing or an active holiday as you would wish.
