Old Railway Inn is a semi-detached cottage resting in Maesycrugiau near to the scenic village of Llanllwni.

Attached to the owner's home which was formerly the Old Railway Inn, this enchanting base is a wonderfully romantic retreat from which to explore the countryside wonders of Wales.

This valley cottage is ideally located in a peaceful setting surrounded by stunning scenery; a true haven for outdoor lovers.

The entrance leads into the modest yet well-equipped kitchen with a dining area, where you can make the most of your evenings with a delicious dining experience as you toast to a wonderful holiday, its pale blue and white units bringing a bright and airy aura to the room.

Move through into the delight of the sitting room, framed by its character beams, here you can spend your nights relaxing in front of the rustic woodburning stove, the Freeview TV making the ultimate alternative for a quiet night in when you're not out exploring.

Venture outside to find a quiet spot to yourself if you so wish, with the large enclosed outside patio with a generous seating area making a fabulous spot to delve into a book.

Head back inside and wash away the day with a refreshing shower, before retreating to your delightful double bedroom to catch up on your rest ahead of your next day of excitement.

Find all your local amenities in the nearby village of Llanllwini, home to both a local shop and a selection of pubs, you can ensure all your culinary requirements are met on your self-catered stay.

The pretty seaside village of Llangrannog is only 18 miles away, along with the stunning sand dunes at the National Trust's Penbryn Beach, making a wonderful day trip in the summer months to soak up the sun and indulge in an ice cream, or for a day full of action, there's a fabulous array of outdoor activities nearby with canoeing in Llandysul, alongside walking, cycling and bird watching, offering something for every taste.

Visit Brecha Forest with its fantastic walking and cycling trails, a real favourite of mountain bikers, or the adjacent Llanllwni Mountain with is stretch of heathland and impressive views, and iff you enjoy the outdoors, there is a canoeing centre in nearby Llandysul, and superb countryside and coastal walks, boat trips to spot dolphins, watersports and excellent beaches can all be found in the area.

About the location


Llanybydder 4 miles; Llandysul 5.5 miles; Newcastle Emlyn 13 miles; New Quay 15 miles; Aberaeron 22 miles.

Llanllwni is a small village community in Carmarthenshire, on the main Carmarthen to Lampeter road. Set on the edge of the Llanllwni Mountain, with stunning heathland and a large area of common land home to grazing ponies, the area enjoys fantastic views across Carmarthenshire, sloping down into the Brechfa Forest and Cothi River valley. With such a wide expanse of countryside surrounding the village, there are a myriad of outdoor activities for you to pursue and enjoy whilst staying in this region. This area is also particularly ideal for cyclists as the National Cycle Route 82 runs through the area opening up miles of countryside. Spend an afternoon exploring the popular market town of Llandysul on the River Teifi, or further afield, 17 miles to the south, the county town of Carmarthen is the oldest town in Wales and popular with tourists to the area. New Quay is just a short drive away and dolphin spotting is a popular pastime here. When the sun shines, you can even pack a picnic for the day and venture west to Ceredigion Bay, which stretches for miles up and down Wales’ west coastline, with plenty of long sandy beaches to enjoy. A wonderful, central holiday base for a trip to Wales.
