  • "Superb holiday, so relaxing and quiet."

    The house was top notch and had a really friendly, interesting and super helpful owner. Nothing was too much trouble and the log fire was a extra comfort at night. Will definitely recommend this as a 10/10 visit and will be trying to get back again at some future point. Wonderful. G & M Jones

  • "No quilts bedding or towels supplied with cottage also not very clean, Mr Wilson was friendly old gent think property would benefit with a regular cleaner."

    Thank you for your comments. I do state in the listing prior to booking that bedding and towels are not provided. I also recall reminding you about this prior to your stay personally. I am disappointed to learn that you felt the property was not clean to your standards, I was not aware of any concerns during your stay. I pride myself on the cleanliness of the property and will take onboard any appropriate criticism. Best wishes, The owner of Blaendyffryn Fach Property Owner

  • "We were very pleased with the cottage."

    It was very clean and well equipped. The location was very peaceful with lovely views. Although the owner (Snowy) lives very close you are not overlooked. He has a wealth of local knowledge and helped us visit little known places. We very rarely holiday in the same place more than once but we may break that tradition with this cottage sometime. It really did give us exactly what we wanted. Thank you Snowy for helping us have a great holiday. Nick & Sally

    Mr Wilson was so kind and nice, arranged for our horsetrekking session and gave us plenty of info on local places to see. Checked daily with us if we needed anything and waited for us with a small goodies pack that was really appreciated. The cotteage was perfectly placed with access to moors and wonderful views. Utilated with anything you may need, including clothes detergent. My daughter only talks about the cottage and how she wants to return there. Fully recommend it and we hope we will return soon.

  • "The cottage is perfectly situated overlooking beautiful scenery."

    It was so peaceful I didn’t want to leave. The cottage has everything you need for time away to relax, a mini home from home. You can walk for miles from the cottage, Brechfa forest is 10 minutes drive away, and there are many incredible beaches and coastline walks less than 45 minutes away. Snowy, the owner, was incredible, and was available for queries at any time. Great chats too. Highly recommend this lovely little cottage

    We chose the cottage because of its rural location, it was so quiet and tranquil. Snowy was lovely kind and helpful when we arrived, we didn’t see him to talk to again until we left but we knew he was there if we needed anything. We really really enjoyed our stay at the cottage.

  • "We had a wonderful time with lovely weather."

    The cottage had everything we needed, Snowy the owner was there when we needed him for tips and advice on places to go but was never intrusive. The patio area was a total sun trap and was a perfect spot to enjoy the evening sun after a day of exploring. The area is stunning and plenty of exploring to do. We had our two dogs with us who had a super holiday too, one word of advice if you have an older dog or one with mobility issues would be to take a mat with you as the kitchen floor proved quite slippery for my older dog. We always carry a mat in our vehicle just in case so was not an issue for us. We are so glad to have found this cottage and will definitely return.

    with ample space for three adults. The location was lovely but because of the time of year was mostly covered in low clouds. The owners were very helpful and we had no trouble gaining access. A local pub provided excellent food and hospitality. I would like to return in the summer months. All in all a good holiday break.

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.
