  • "We had a lovely extended stay at ty'r ystrad while waiting to move into our house."

    It was just like being in our own home. The house was lovely clean and comfortable. The kitchen is very well equipped. The house is walking distance to the local coop, center of kidwelly and the castle. Ed was quick to answer any questions. We didn't have a problem with the on street parking and always parked easily close to the door. Thankyou for a wonderful stay .

  • "Cottage was lovely and clean, had all you needed, if your taking dogs, be warned both neighbours have dogs."

    and could get a tad noisey at times with the barking. parking is hit and miss if you get parked outside or halfway up the street. Kidwelly itself once you`ve done the castle and Quay you will have to drive everywhere.

  • "The house was lovely, real home from home."

    The children and the dog enjoyed the garden. The weather was mixed but when it was nice it was hot, even spending a couple of days on the beach at Pembury Country Park. The kids went horse riding there, they enjoyed the play area and the miniature railway. Lovely place for a picnic, either on the beach or the lovely country garden setting. Kidwelly itself was nice but quiet, we loved the castle, some nice little quirky eating places. Visited the Blue Lagoon water park, which is on a holiday site, you have to book ahead, this was very busy, but the kids loved it. All in all a very pleasant stay.

    Every need is catered for - it's an absolute home from home! (minus our woodburner) but a lovely fireplace. Clean, comfortable & great location. If your considering a visit, don't hesitate you won't regret it.

    The house far exceeded our expecations with a wonderfull kitchen and bathroom, better than ours at home. The house was very well furnished with all you could need. The weather was exceptional so we could explore the area from Tenby to the Gower but still did not have time to see it all. This is a house and area that we would like to return to in the future

This welcoming terraced cottage is situated on the edge of the popular town of Kidwelly and is just a short walk from the impressive ruins of the Norman castle.

The cottage is a perfect base for friends or family looking to explore the sandy beaches, nature reserves and local countryside of South Wales, yet being accessible to a quaint little town.

Set over two floors, there are three comfortable bedrooms with a family bathroom.

On the ground floor there is a modern well-equipped kitchen with breakfast bar and everything you need to cook an evening meal.

There is a separate dining room leading off the cosy sitting room where you can relax after a busy day exploring.

Outside, you can sit in the patio garden and relax as the sun goes down, or perhaps the children and dogs can run off any remaining energy in the seperate lawned garden, before coming back and enjoying a barbecue supper.

Kidwelly is steeped in history, with the stunning remains of the 12th century castle in the heart of the town.

This gives you a glimpse of a bygone era, as well as the industrial museum, based in the grounds of the historic tin mine.

You are a few miles from fabulous sandy beaches and just 10 miles away from the town of Carmarthen, which offers great shopping, bars, restaurants and a cinema.

The area offers various opportunities for great days out including a number of local golf courses.

Nearby Pembrey Country Park offers a myriad of activities including cycling, walking, tobogganing and pony trekking or simply enjoy the 7 miles of sandy beach on the edge of the park itself.

You are close to some great sporting venues with Ffos Las racecourse and Parc Y Scarlets being within 10 miles of the cottage.

Slightly further afield, why not head north and enjoy a day visiting the stunning National Botanic Gardens of Wales, Aberglasney Medieval House and Gardens or the National Trust’s Dinefwr Estate, with its majestic deer park, on the edge of the town of Llandeilo.

A perfect location to retreat to after a day exploring the local countryside and fabulous beaches, ideal for families and friends looking for a comfy property on the edge of a popular little town.
