The property

Carmarthen 3 miles.

A unique and cosy detached cottage situated in peaceful country surroundings on the owner's seasonal arable and livestock smallholding, three miles from Carmarthen.

The owner has made this Carmarthen cottage a real home-from-home, with charming traditional furnishings throughout, typical of a Welsh country cottage.

Open beams in the sitting room add to the wonderful character of this Carmarthen holiday cottage and the delightful mezzanine twin room, with its own small balcony, gives the opportunity to sit outside and enjoy the far-reaching countryside views on a sunny afternoon.

A ground floor bedroom and bathroom are ideal for the less mobile, making this Carmarthen cottage perfect for a variety of holidaymakers.

The walks through the owner's fields and woodland are a nature lover's and birdwatcher's paradise, and being located at the top of the hill, the walking and cycle rides from the doorstep of this Carmarthen cottage are varied and very enjoyable.

    Mr Salam, London, February 2015

    • “An excellent country location, caring and attentive hosts and was ideally located for day trips through the region.”

    Mr Albiston, Oamaru, August 2014

    • “Liked the welcome. Very long journey due to motorway incidents, owners invited us in and could not do enough for us all week. The cottage is on remote farm; very peaceful with lovely views and a big meadow at the back which our granddaughters loved. Girls also loved the mezzanine bedroom. Very comfy accommodation although sitting room is quite small for more than four people. We were visiting family all over west and southern Wales and the farm was very centrally located with easy access to main roads to various towns and beaches. Would recommend this cottage and will be returning with other family as well.”
