Accuracy of the listing

  • "We were able to have queries answered by text messages which and had quickly replies."

    We were able to get WIFI by request. The accommodation is close to the railway station and the day return to Carmarthen, for instance, was only £4.20 which was good value.

  • "This cottage (3 bedrooms - 5 foot wide double, twin room at the back and bunk beds in 3rd."

    ) is cosy and quirky. Great to see a full size fridge freezer and local shop is open long hours. Easy to park right outside, although soon found out you have to drive in via tiny access road as the road of address is a one way street. Cottage provided an excellent base for exploring. We had trouble phoning the mobile number given for sorting out details - (phone signal is in a weak area), so it's much better to text. We always got an instant answer that way. Sofa could do with more cushions, although there are plenty in the cottage if you look. Armchair is very comfortable.

    Thank you so much for your comments. We are glad to hear that you have enjoyed your stay and you loved the cottage. Some of the cushions were removed due to the covid regulations and recommendations on covid hygiene measures. Thank you again for the lovely review. Property Owner

  • "It was actually BETTER than the listing' for example we were able to access wi-fi on request (not listed)."

    Parking was very easy, but looked a bit pessimistic on the listing. Nice flat-screen TV.

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Y Garth."

    The cottage was very clean and cosy, and I loved the quirkyness of it. Great selection of books, and I particularly liked being able to read up on castles before we visited them. It was more spacious than it appeared in the photos; there were 5 of us, 3 adults and 2 teens, and we never felt cramped.The village shop is excellent and open long hours, and the beach lovely.

  • "A lovely little cottage; simple, comfortable and cosy."

    Ferryside is a lovely place too with a great beach for walking. It's not touristy at all, just a lovely little seaside village, a great place to get away from it all. Our host was very hospitable and helpful.

  • "The owner had clearly put a lot of effort into making the cottage comfortable and welcoming."

    I appreciated that she got milk in for when we arrived.

  • "Location was lovely, Ferryside was a perfect spot."

    Although it’s not hugely convenient for large supermarkets, the Coop in Kidwelly is fine. I liked the fact that Ferryside is off the tourist trail, the beach was quiet and a couple of minute walk from the cottage. It could be perfectly doable to leave your car behind here too. There were regular trains to Carmarthen and Llanelli/Swansea and the cycle route to Kidwelly/Llanelli/Swansea is pretty flat and easy though not so to Carmarthen though!

About the location


Carmarthen 10 miles.

Ferryside is a pretty coastal village with a wonderful sandy beach, a general store, cafe, Post Office and pub. Regular trains stop in the village offering easy travel to Carmarthen, Pembrey or Llanelli and many more attractions further afield. Carmarthen is a busy market town with a variety of shops, tea rooms, restaurants and pubs. A visit to Pembrey Country Park, with its sandy beach, toboggan run and dry ski slope, is a great day out for all the family, as is a day at Merlin's Hill Centre, shrouded in mystery and rich in wildlife. There are castles, craft centres and mills galore, all in easy reach, whilst a visit to Laugharne to see Dylan Thomas' Boat House, or a day out at Oakwood Theme Park or Folly Farm, are a must. With walks from the doorstep and the cycle trail at the Millennium Coastal Path close by, this is as perfect a base for a relaxing or an active holiday as you would wish.

Sorry, no groups of workers.
Note: no stag/hen parties or similar. Please inquire with office if unsure as no single sex parties allowed.
