  • "A bird watchers paradise is how we'd describe it."

    We woke every morning to various birdsong and enjoyed seeing the different birds flying to and fro. Janice and John were perfect hosts and made us feel very welcome. They're very generous welcome pack was so thoughtful. We had to go up and down a narrow windy lane but never encountered any other vehicle. We would very much recommend Broadford Farm Bungalow for a very peaceful and friendly holiday. Regards Gwyneth and Roy

  • "Janice and John were the perfect hosts."

    There was everything you could wish for in facilities even the kind gifts of wine and cakes. The bungalow was lovely and cosy and so nice and warm. The best experience was the Red Kite that came most days to be fed. Thank you J and J for a lovely 10 days.

  • "Needing to book somewhere at the last minute we found Broadwater Farm."

    It was exactly as hoped for; comfy beds, decent shower and a well equipped kitchen. There were even big mugs and not tiny cups provided - always a positive for me! The garden would have been lovely if it had ever stopped raining (although it was December in Wales!) and Janice and John were helpful hosts. We have stayed in many holiday rental properties in the area and this one definitely ticked all the boxes.

  • "The bungalow is spacious, comfortable, well-equipped and spotless."

    It is located down a quiet lane and has a large garden with a pleasant outlook over fields. It was very peaceful and we slept well, the bed being comfortable. There was always lots of hot water, the WiFi worked well and the Sky package provided plenty of TV viewing choice. The only suggestion I could make is for softer lighting in the lounge (perhaps a standard lamp or 2 table lamps) as the ceiling and wall lights are very bright. The owners are extremely affable and helpful and quickly solved a minor problem. They gave us a very generous welcome pack, which was much appreciated. There are 2 easy ways of walking into Kidwelly centre, the longer one being 1.4 miles. The half-hourly X11 bus (Swansea – Carmarthen) can be caught there. However, there is also an infrequent but useful Morris Travel bus to Carmarthen (service 198) which can be caught at a bus stop in Mynydd-y-Garreg, only 7 minutes walk from the bungalow. There is a large Co-op in Kidwelly and the 198 bus stops there, so we found that convenient. We had excellent lunches at The Red Lion Inn in Llandyfaelog, Florentino's (Italian) in Carmarthen and Nik the Greek in Burry Port. Apart from one wet day, we had good weather and remarkably on two days it was warm enough to sit in the garden till 5pm. All in all we had a very pleasant week and enjoyed exploring an area with which we were not very familiar. The bungalow is well placed for trips out and I have no hesitation in recommending it.

    All requirements met. Janice and John were most helpful. Thank you kindly for the gift pack awaiting us on arrival. We devoured it. The local people in the pubs greeted us and were very welcoming. Irish and English among us. We had a great craic with them. We will definitely be back in 2024. Martin, Seamus and Daniel.

  • "Friendly, generous and helpful owners of a nice comfortable property."

    Directions for finding the bungalow rather vague with no place names or landmarks given. A bit "challenging" to sleep in a small double bed. Ought to be mentioned that there is no mobile coverage, except vodaphone (subject to weather conditions).

    Janice and John were great hosts with a genuine desire to make the most of our stay. the location is great, with abundant wild life feeding and playing feet from the patio doors. ( we saw more than a visit to a nature reserve). Hosts were knowledgeable of the local area and keen to point out places to visit if asked. It felt like saying goodbye to friends rather than hosts when we left.. In all a great cottage in a good location with caring hosts. A very relaxing week and wood not hesitate to book again.

    The bungalow was clean, had everything we could need & more. The area was lovely, the river definitely worth exploring. A highlight of our stay was having a Red Kite visit us everyday, we even got to watch it swoop down for food right in front of us. All of that said, it was Janice & John who made our stay so wonderful. Warm welcome from the moment we arrived, their hospitality was just a joy, we honestly felt valued & more like family than guests. Diolch Janice & John, we cannot wait to return !!

  • "The delightful Janice and John make you feel so welcome to their very comfortable bungalow on their farm."

    There is a delicious welcome basket of food awaiting new tenants, and the couple are so friendly, helpful and generous. It was a real pleasure meeting them and sharing stories of Wales with them. The property is situated well off the main roads and is so quiet and idyllic. It is very well equipped and nothing is lacking. We chose it because it has an ideal location in the middle of South Wales - so you can go West/East and North and enjoy several days out. (A must: do visit Kidwelly Castle, one of the best in Wales). The excellent (and rather unexpected) weather did help, of course. Our thanks to Janice and John for a lovely week's stay.

Janice and John are 2 lovely people who would do anything for you to make your holiday as enjoyable as possible. We couldn't find a tin opener in the drawers and when asking Janice if we could buy one anywhere, she said "it's and electric one on the counter next to the kettle and microwave" , so everything was there that was needed and a little bit more!

Then received a email from Mrs Davies welcoming us to the property ?? For such a big firm this was very disappointing . I would highly recommend this cottage .

    I’m sorry for any confusion you experienced during the booking process.
