    Home made biscuits were a lovely surprise and also the leaving gift of local Welsh cakes and chutney. The cottage was spotless and cosy, the garden was stunning. It was in a good position for exploring the area and we visited lots of fabulous places. I would highly recommend a stay here.

    The cottage is very well equipped and homely, the bed was nearly as comfortable as the one at home !! Hosts Anita and Adrian were lovely, the work they have done on the cottages and the gardens and beautiful walks are wonderful. Ideal spot for exploring Pembrokeshire, will definitely recommend and hope to return again very soon.

  • "Lovely warm welcome on arrival by Anita, Adrian and Milo(the dog)!"

    The cottage was spotlessly clean and had everything for home living including a nice large kitchen(with a little seating area- great for breakfast), separate lounge and dining area room and 2 large bedrooms (the second bedroom had 3 single beds). There was a decent sized bathroom and a second smaller room with toliet and wash basin (which our daughter loved!) The owners went out of their way to ensure we were comfortable throughout our stay. We would highly recommend this cottage and cannot wait to return! Oh and for those garden lovers the grounds are amazing with a beautiful Riverside walk too.

  • "This was a beautiful cottage in a idyllic setting ."

    The owners Adrian and Anita and Milo the dog were so welcoming and helpful during our stay . Tea coffee and home made biscuits greeted us on our arrival such a delight. The cottage has local paths on site that take you alongside a river and you can walk up into the forest exploring. Our dogs loved it and so did we. You are local to all good places to visit within Wales but we preferred to stay on site only popping out twice to Carmarthen and Laugharne . We highly recommend this delightful place and we plan to return . The cottage has everything you need so cosy we had such a relaxing week .

    The hosts are very friendly and helpful, the games room is a bonus it has plenty of information to visit places etc. The woodland garden has a lovely walk and snowdrops and daffodils are ready for flowering. The area is amazing however there are lots of narrow country lanes we were fortunate as it was quiet. The cottage is well equipped and plenty of room for a family and dogs. We hope to be back when the days are longer, our dog loved the beaches it isn’t too far away. We would give Red Kite a 5 star.

    Adrian and Anita couldn't do enough to help us find it which I did 2 and a half hours later (it was in the van under a seat!!). Whilst looking I rang the RAC and as I wasn't insured for key loss it would have cost me £306.00!! I was also told that Adrian and Anita could let us spare beds in there property as the 'key man' couldn't do the job until Sunday if I had needed him!! What a lovely couple.

  • "Lovely, clean, comfortable cottage, peaceful and very rural."

    Maybe too ‘middle of nowhere’ for some people but we loved watching the birds, butterflies and bats and exploring the gardens. Was a bit of a drive to reach anywhere but soon got used to the roads. Blessed with good weather to explore the Pembrokeshire coast. Enjoyed our only wet day watching DVDs and playing board games from the extensive collection available at the cottage. Would definitely recommend this property and a big thank you to the friendly, hardworking owners!

    If you want a get away place just to recharge your batteries for the stresses of work and life in general, this place is for you. The cottage has everything you could wish for and more. Adrian and Anita keep the cottages perfectly and go that bit further to provide everything for a pleasurable stay. Nothing is to much trouble. Home from home. Well done.

  • "Red Kite accommodation was lovely; really clean and warm."

    The owners have thought of everything to ensure that you have a good holiday. The gardens, stream and woodland are very well kept and accessible. They have provided a games room, with a huge amount of local information booklets and maps, and an enormous selection of games and puzzles to keep young and old entertained in the event of rain. Even the weather was kind to us, with sunshine every day. It is very remote, and not in walking distance to any pubs/shops/civilisation, but that suited us. The owners were on site at all times, so if we had any queries, they would be able to help, but were not intrusive. In short, we had a lovely time, in a wonderful cottage in a lovely area, and would recommend it. Only drawback that I can see, is that if I had young children, I would be worried about the stream, but that didn't worry us oldies.

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