    “Exactly what we wanted”
    This cottage is quite out of the way, and it takes a while to get to a major road, but of course this means it's very peaceful and quiet. The location is beautiful, and the cottage itself is great. The layout is a little unusual, but it served our purpose perfectly for four adults and a dog. The property is comfortable and well looked after, and the owner was very welcoming and friendly, and made quite the fuss of our dog, which he loved.

She has her own dogs as well as a horse, so is clearly an animal lover. Overall, would definitely recommend a stay here, as long as you don't mind being a little distance away from main roads and amenities.

The property

Llansawel 3.7 miles.

This is a comfy annexed cottage adjoined to the owner’s smallholding, nestled on the edge of the fabulous Brechfa Forest and adjacent to the diverse heathland of Llanllwni Mountain.

The cottage is a perfect base for a family or group of friends that want to access the great outdoors from the doorstep with infinite amounts of walking and cycle trails across some truly amazing landscapes, yet remaining close to fabulous little market towns and a short drive to the sandy beaches of West Wales.

There are three comfortable bedrooms, two benefiting from en-suite facilities.

The kitchen and dining area are also located on the first floor and boasts a small balcony, ideal for savouring the peace and tranquillity.

On the ground floor the comfortable lounge boasts a cosy woodburner for those chillier nights, and French doors that open onto the patio.

Outside, you can sit on the patio relaxing, whilst watching your children and dogs use up the last of their energy in the secure garden.

This idyllic location on the edge of the stunning Brechfa Forest is renowned for its stunning forestry and fabulous trails, where you are able to walk or cycle from the door and enjoy the 18,000 acres of mixed woodland.

Whether you want adrenaline fuelled mountain bike trails, challenging road cycling, horse riding or a more sedate walk through the woods to a local pub, you will find everything close by for those who enjoy the great outdoors and the fabulous local wildlife.

You are ideally placed to visit the pretty riverside town of Llandeilo, known for its boutique style shopping and great places to eat, and virtually on its doorstep is the National Trust Dinefwr Estate.

A little further on, the two great gardens of Aberglasney and The National Botanic Gardens of Wales are certainly worth exploring.

The area offers numerous outdoor activities such as cycling, fishing, walking, horse riding and fabulous wildlife spotting countryside.

A short drive will open up the beaches of either the Cardigan Bay to the west or Carmarthen Bay to the south.

Ideal for a family or small group looking to walk, cycle and just enjoy the wildlife and the great outdoors.

About the location

LLANSAWEL

Rhydcymerau 3.6 miles; Llandeilo 10 miles; Llandovery 12 miles.

Llansawel is a thriving village in the lovely Cothi Valley, historically it was an important livestock market, due to it being on the convergence of five roads, and still retains two of the original five pubs, that once served the need of the transient drovers, whilst moving between markets. Surrounded by beautiful undulating countryside, close to the National Trust's Dolaucothi Gold Mines and the monastery ruins of Talley Abbey. Llansawel is a rural idyll, yet is close to the popular towns of Llandeilo and Llandovery and fabulous days out.
