  • "Well equipped, comfortable and in a beautiful location."

    Lovely welcome gifts and all information provided.

  • "Barcud Cottage is very comfortable and well equipped, in a quiet and peaceful location, it’s the perfect place to switch off and relax."

    The ground floor bedroom had a very comfortable bed, ideal at the end of a day walking on the beach and a spacious en-suite bathroom. The owners have thought of everything, from providing dog beds and blankets to something as simple as a good range of cleaning materials and clingfilm! And the on-site laundry came in handy after getting caught in the rain. The communal gardens are well kept and spacious, none of the cottages overlook each other and the dog exercise field was enjoyed by our two dogs.

    Very comfortable with everything we needed. A perfect spot for visiting fantastic places in Wales. We had a great break and the hosts couldn’t have been more welcoming and helpful.

  • "The only negative was Sat Navs try to take you into a field for the post code, but the information provided, plus available contact details of the owners meant that cottage was straightforward to find."

    The location is very quiet and isolated with a drive to the nearest grocery shops, but that was what we expected. It is within an hour's drive of many places to visit including the Beacons and the coast, plus many many castles. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful and made our stay a very enjoyable one, even when housebound due to some wild weather. Everything about the cottage was perfect as it was very clean and tidy and fully equipped for all our needs.

The property

Note: The property has been upgraded with improved facilities for the 2022 season.

Llandeilo 3.9 miles.

Nestled amidst the beautiful Carmarthenshire countryside with far-reaching views of the valleys to admire, is Barcud Cottage.

In a complex of three, with the owners living nearby, this characterful stone-built property offers a rural self-catering experience in a sought after position in Wales.

This converted barn has been transformed into exceptional accommodation and with both the coast and countryside awaiting to be explored, you and your loved ones will be delighted to call this home for a while.

Enter into the cottage and discover the well-equipped kitchen, hosting a range of quality amenities for cooking up family-favourite dishes, whilst the dining table allows the group to gather to enjoy each other’s company over good food and drinks.

The sitting room is elegantly decorated, with a plush seating arrangement and a comforting electric log burner inviting you in to relax in front of the Smart TV and with an enhanced view of the countryside through the new large glass patio door.

A perfect way to unwind after a bracing walk on the Welsh hills.

Concluding the ground floor is the master bedroom, featuring a sumptuous super-king-size bed and its own en-suite shower room, whilst upstairs there are zip'n'link twin beds (or request for a super king size), with its own en-suite shower room.

During the summer months, light up the barbecue and enjoy a spot of alfresco dining on the private patio or take a seat around the communal fire-pit whilst any younger guests of the group have run of the large lawn area.

Alternatively, enjoy a fabulous woodland walk from the front door.

Explore your surroundings further by talking a stroll into the nearby village of Golden Grove or find a larger selection of amenities in Llandeilo, which is set in the heart of the Towy Valley and has an interesting selection of individual shops, galleries, pubs, delicatessens and eateries.

Carmarthenshire is known as the Garden of Wales and the National Botanic Garden of Wales and Aberglasney, a garden lost in time, are both just moments away and offer superb days out, whilst the town of Carmarthen itself is also well worth a look, too.

Outdoor pursuits are in abundance here, with excellent salmon and sewin fishing available on the River Towy, as well as a network of mountain bike trails and for nature lovers, the area abounds in wildlife, with red kites, owls, badgers and deer regularly seen across the area.

Further afield is the Gower Peninsula, home to a collection of wonderful beaches with great surfing opportunities, whilst the Black Mountain and the Bannau Brycheiniog National Park (Brecon Beacons National Park) are ideal for the avid ramblers amongst us.

Barcud Cottage promises to be a wonderful getaway for the whole family.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
