  • "A lovely cottage in a quiet and relaxing village setting."

    Good quality fittings and furnishings with a well stocked kitchen. A delightful gift of wine, milk, cake and eggs on arrival. The only drawback is that the owner Jenny, who is a helpful and friendly lady, had recently had a bad experience with renters allowing their muddy dogs to badly soil the upstairs carpets and beds, so now dogs are not allowed upstairs at all. If this had been in the cottage description we would have had to go elsewhere as our dogs sleep in crates in our bedroom at home. There is no gate at the bottom of the stairs, tho Jenny says she has one coming, but our dogs had to be shut in the kitchen at night and the young one cried and howled so we took turns in sleeping downstairs on the settee to stop this and prevent complaints from the neighbours. Other than this we thought the local area was amazing. Dog walks from the door, shops, eateries and interesting places in Newcastle Emlyn only 4 miles away and a fantastic dog friendly beach at Newport. Happy to strongly recommend if your dogs are ok sleeping in the kitchen.

  • "Cottage was perfect for us, a nice enclosed garden do didn't have to worry about our dog."

    Best equipped kitchen ever. Clean and comfortable, a lovely conservatory, a relaxing area where we sat most afternoons to reflect on our outing that day. The owner Jenny has put care and consideration into putting this holiday home together to make it a home to home experience. Loved it. We also felt Sykes did a grand job from the moment we booked. Would recommend both to anyone.

The property

Newcastle Emlyn 3.6 miles.

This picturesque double-fronted end of terrace cottage rests in the small village of Capel Iwan, a little settlement in South Wales not far from the bustling town of Newcastle Emlyn.

Gwynfa is a perfect fit for a family of five holidaying in the luscious Welsh countryside, in search of outdoor adventures and day trips to the coast.

Step into this homely abode and be met with a delightful sitting area to your right, where you can settle down before the warming woodburning stove as you watch a movie on the Smart TV, a quiet evening to relax after a busy day.

Opposite here is the dining area which is host to a beautiful wood table, gather here for board games, mealtimes and planning your activities.

Travel two steps up into the spacious kitchen, where light-wood worktops sit atop cream units holding a fabulous range of appliances including an electric oven and hob as well as a dishwasher, so you can whip up some fantastic dishes and not worry about the washing up afterwards!

Sit at the bench-style dining seating in here for your breakfast before heading into the conservatory to relish the morning sun settled on one of the soft seats with a cup of coffee or tea in hand.

Let the dogs have a run around first thing in the enclosed garden, this area is a delightful feature in summer offering somewhere private to get some fresh air.

Upstairs on the first floor, you are afforded with the choice of three bedrooms, including a king-size, a double and a single, all with ample space and quality furnishings, with the latter two rooms even benefitting from dual-aspect windows creating a bright and airy aura.

Freshen up in the bathroom, choosing either a long soak in the bath, or a hot shower in the separate walk-in shower, while a cloakroom lies on the ground-floor too.

Gwynfa is an ideal base for families looking to explore South Wales.
