The property

This charming end-terrace cottage is located in the heart of the thriving market town of Llandeilo, on the edge of the beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park. Enter this Llandeilo cottage through the solid wood door into a hallway with cloakroom on the ground floor, from where two steps lead up to an open plan living area and a flight of stairs lead down to the bedrooms and shower room. Deceptively large, the superb open plan living area with its high apex ceiling and open beams is an absolute delight, plus with a large dining table and with one step up to the well-equipped kitchen, many hours of family fun can be enjoyed here. On the lower ground floor, the two bedrooms at this Llandeilo cottage have been furnished to an excellent standard and offer a relaxing night's sleep after enjoyable days out. Walk down the hill to discover some real hidden gems with unique little shops offering everything from designer wear to knitting wools. The array of local produce on sale in the shops will entice you into the tea rooms, restaurants and good pubs, meaning you can spend the whole day in this charming town. Dinefwr Park and Castle, the ancient home of the Welsh princes, now owned by the National Trust, is just 500 yards away from this Llandeilo cottage and is well worth a visit. With the Brecon Beacons on your doorstep, castles, gardens and the coast within driving distance, you don't need to venture far for great days out. One thing is for certain, you will want to return to this wonderful Llandeilo cottage time and again.

    • “This is a beautifully decorated and comfortable cottage, definitely quirky in a good way. Located in a quiet part of a pleasant town. Lots of nice pubs and eateries nearby and a short drive to the Brecon Beacons national park. Nearby castle worth a visit. Had a lovely break there but it was off season so might be a bit busier in summer.”

About the location


Ammanford 8 miles; Carmarthen 15 miles; Llanelli 18 miles.

Llandeilo in picturesque Carmarthenshire, sits proudly on a hill above the River Tywi, the longest river that flows entirely through Wales. This pretty market town has a lovely selection of unusual gift shops, eating places and pubs, whilst visits to the medieval Dinefwr and Carreg Cennen Castles add to the charm. A short drive away is the scenic Brecon Beacons National Park, and the upland landscapes of the Carmarthenshire Fans and Black Mountains are a walker's delight. The beautiful sandy beaches and cliff walks of the Gower Peninsula, plus the ever popular Pembrokeshire coastline are not too far away. This is the ideal location for family holidays at any time of year.
