This lovely property is a semi-detached cottage attached to the owner's home which was formerly the Old Railway Inn, in a quiet position of the Carmarthenshire village of Maesycrugiau.

This valley cottage is ideally located in a peaceful setting surrounded by stunning Welsh scenery.

The entrance leads into the cosy kitchen with dining area and then through into the cosy living room, where many nights can be spent relaxing in front of the woodburning fire.

You will be able to find a quiet area if you so wish, with the large enclosed outside patio with generous seating area.

The pretty seaside village of Llangrannog is only 18 miles away, along with the stunning sand dunes at the National Trust’s Penbryn Beach.

There are a fabulous array of outdoor activities nearby with canoeing in nearby Llandysul, walking, cycling and bird watching.

Why not 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.

If 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.

It is a quiet village set in a west Wales valley with little more than 500 houses a shop, a fine fish and chip shop and two pubs. It hosts the site of an old castle, which is now a grassy Motte. Just 12 miles away the market town of Carmarthen offers a variety of large high street shops, unique local produce shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants, as well as a cinema and theatre. Visit Merlin's Hill Centre, steeped in history and shrouded in mystery, where legend has it that Merlin lies imprisoned inside the hill.
