  • "Thank you for a lovely weekend stay, the cottage was lovely and clean, comfortable, and great considering we had dogs with us."

    We felt welcome by the property owners and felt we could ask if we needed anything. The games room was a great plus and the Riverside walk on the doorstep was wonderful and my dogs dream having that 24/7.we all left feeling like we would like to return sometime soon for another stay. Highly recommend.

    Adrian and Anita couldn't be nicer or try any harder to make your stay everything you'd like it to be. The valley garden is a delight. Wish I'd seen the rhododendron, but the daffs and hellebores were super. Well done, guys!

    The cottage had everything you could wish for and the attention to detail was superb. The owners have thought of everything to provide you with a stress free holiday. The games room was great with a cupboard full of board games and so much information on things to do. We had the best time and would definitely go again.

  • "A very friendly welcome from the owners, Adrian and Anita, on our arrival."

    The cottage is delightful in a quiet and peaceful setting. It is very well maintained, fully equipped with everything you need for your stay and was very clean so we were able to just move our things in and begin our holiday. A lovely games room and beautiful gardens to wander in. There are plenty of places nearby to visit and some lovely villages and excellent beaches a short drive away. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Kingfisher and would not hesitate in recommending this property.

  • "A beautiful cottage, right in the middle of the Welsh countryside but with plenty of beaches and facilities in easy driving distance."

    Anita and Adrian, the owners of the property, could not have been more welcoming - even making fresh cookies for our arrival! The cottage was immaculate and had everything we could possibly need for our stay (for example, an array of pots and pans for cooking, every imaginable cooking utensil and plenty of crockery.) There is a shared games room between the properties, with a pool table, a darts board and a variety of games available. Out two children made good use of this room. The cottage is in a beautiful location, with a river and a short woodland walk to the side. We've had a lovely, relaxing break and were sad to go home at the end of the stay. We would highly recommend this property.

  • "The area in which the holiday let is located is rural and stunning."

    The building is set off the road, with no traffic sounds and has parking outside. The space is clean and ample for a family and clearly very well cared for. There is a shared games room with darts and pool which we enjoyed, with cleaning products to ensure the space was COVID safe. The owners are very nice, and took the time to chat to our little boys, we will definitely be back!

    Adrian and Anita were very welcoming and friendly and have put a lot of effort into the guest experience which really shows. The woodland trail at the property is really special with benches by the river and the most beautiful gardens surrounding. Super comfy beds and a well equipped property. I would not hesitate in recommending this property.

  • "Absolutely perfect location for exploring Pembrokeshire, including local walks on your door step and not forgetting the most beautiful gardens carefully tended by Anita and Adrian."

    The whole family is catered for with indoor and outdoor games and not forgetting the dog too! Really enjoyed having a game of pool in the games room which also accommodates an amazing array of information that would rival that of any tourist information centre which together with Anita’s suggestions ensured we maxed out our stay. Thanks for a lovely time. Would certainly recommend this as a place to stay :)

    Whilst this garden is exceptional, it was not enclosed.

    The cottage is very homely and has everything you need. With spectacular wooded gardens to stroll through or just sit a while, it’s just made for a relaxing break.

  • "We had a fantastic holiday week at Kingfisher cottage in a beautiful rural location with amazing support from our hosts."

    The cottage was beautifully prepared and furnished and spotlessly clean and tidy. Their private wood and walk is truly special and was a joy to visit daily with a bubbling stream passing by the cottage. And the cottage is well placed for visits to Saundersfoot and Tenby and all of Pembrokeshire for a longer day trip if you want. Thanks again for a wonderful stay in a truly special place.

  • "We were very lucky to chance upon a cancellation which enabled us to have 5 nights in this lovely cottage."

    In this time of Covid, we hoped to escape to the country, enjoy a different 4 walls whilst staying safe ourselves and keeping others safe. The lengths the owners have gone to to ensure safety are second to none. The cottage was impeccably clean, everything superfluous removed, whilst still being offered as available as long as they had been quarantined (DVD's, maps of the area, brilliant walking guides etc) The kitchen was better equipped than my own, making self catering very easy. The beds were super comfy. Communication with the owners was excellent - on hand if we had enquiries - we didn't know the area at all and they were really helpful in pointing out places to visit - we didn't have enough time to visit them all, so we'll be back!

  • "The cottage was spotless and very comfortable, however, we did not have control of the heating and although the owners lived on site, we did not want to keep asking them at varying times of day and evening to alter the heating for us."

    We did, however, very much enjoy the endless supply of logs. The woodburner was very efficient and easy to use. We would suggest that it would be even better if there were a freezer; even if this was shared with the other cottage, in the laundry room. With the cottage being so far from main shops it would be extremely useful to put loaves of bread and joints of meat in, rather than having to shop more frequently.

  • "We had an amazing week away!"

    The cottage is beautiful with amazing scenery around it. It was clean and very welcoming hosts upon our late arrival. Freshly baked cookies were a lovely little touch along with tea coffee and milk for us to settle in. The games room was full to the brim of information for us to plan each day and the cottage owners also gave us lots of information when we saw them to help us get the most out of our trip. We had two dogs and a two year old with us and there was plenty for all of them to do keep occupied!! There is a really useful laundry room for you to use and the one night I forgot I had a wash on, I went to sort in the morning to find it had been hung out for me - this was really lovely to be so well looked after and the little touches really did make all the difference. We enjoyed exploring the local areas as well as day trips further away and then Evenings cooking and watching films in the cottage. There is NO phone signal however there is enough WiFi within the cottage for you to google and plan your days so it was absolutely fine. We would 100% recommended this cottage for a family week away. Bring your wellies as the local walks are muddy but beautiful and real fun to splash in muddy puddles !!!!!

Post House Garden Cottages

Blaenwaun 2 miles. A pair of former outbuildings, including the village mill and its grain store, offering welcoming and cosy accommodation, set adjacent to the owners’ home and surrounded by a fabulous mix of wooded river valley and working farmland. These delightful properties are nestled deep in the fabulous wooded valley, alongside the meandering River Sien in the hamlet of Cwmbach (meaning ‘little valley’), 2 miles from Blaenwaun village and only 13 miles from the historic market town of Carmarthen. Individually furnished with style and comfort in mind, they offer light, airy and modern interiors with well-equipped kitchens, and comfy sofas to relax in front of a film or browse on the WiFi. Both properties have access to a shared games room with a pool table and darts board, and access to a shared laundry area. Guests can also enjoy the owners’ woodland walk, a lovely chance to meander along the little river and perhaps stop and sit awhile with a picnic. They also have shared use of the communal patio and seating just next to the cottages. These rural Carmarthenshire cottages are surrounded by unspoilt countryside, which undulates across the county to beautiful Cardigan Bay to the west, and the stretches of golden beaches to the south, while the mystical Preseli Hills, 20 miles away, provide a diverse landscape for those looking to explore. Carmarthen is 13 miles away, and offers everyday shopping and a selection of independent shops. Why not take a trip to the boathouse in Laugharne the famous home of Dylan Thomas, or visit the harbourside town of Saundersfoot? A perfect pair of countryside cottages, ideal for family, friends or small groups looking to get away in pretty, rural countryside.

About the location

BLAENWAUN

Carmarthen 18 miles; Tenby 26 miles.

Blaenwaun is a pretty little village in the rolling countryside of Carmarthenshire, which boasts a welcoming village pub and honey farm shop.

With so many walks criss- crossing the area, you will be able to enjoy the serene tranquillity of the undulating countryside.
