  • "Myself and family very much enjoyed our stay at Ty Newydd."

    Cosy little cottage, log fire (if needed), great little garden and loved the access to the river Gwili behind. Enough room to park 2 cars, very friendly village and we all thought it a very comfortable place. Diolch Yn Fawr.

  • "I want to begin by saying that I don't generally review anything unless I have positive things to say but on this occasion I have no choice."

    We had been really looking forward to coming to this cottage but on arrival to the kitchen floor was dirty as were the kitchen worktops. We did not expect after a long journey to have to start our holiday by cleaning so to say we were disappointed was as an understatement. The bathroom also has a lot of mould around the floor edges but I was not willing to clean those. Then as evening arrived, we went to draw the blind in the second bedroom in the velux window only to find it was old and broken. Also the sink in the bathroom leaks. As we wanted to use our time effeciently we did not complain to Sykes until the last day as we did not want to wait in for tradespeople whilst on holiday. Lastly, in the description it says there is a pub located a short distance away, well this was closed when we went to investigate and looked like it had been for quite sometime so the details listed are also incorrect. On the positive, the cottage was cosy, really comfy beds aswell as comfy sofas and armchairs. Generally clean, other than those issues mentioned. The garden was pretty and well maintained. Also the cottage is located in a convenient place for exploring the area. The pub you recommended was also fantastic in terms of food, drink and hospitality so thankyou for that.

    Apologies that you believed the floor and worktops to be dirty. The worktops are sprayed and wiped down, the kitchen floor and bathroom floor are always vacuumed and steamed between guests.I agree the floor looks dirty but thats the type of floor tile. The Railway pub in the village appears to be between owners but glad you found The Forresters in Brachfa good. The leak you reported in the bathroom, that led to mould is now fixed. Apologies if the above let your expectations down. Property Owner

  • "We did think the mattress on the double bed needs to be changed as it dips in the middle."

    The bath was very high to get in and out. But kitchen was well equipped.

    The mattress was brand new and still less than a year old. We will rotate it to stop the dip appearance. Trust rest of your stay was good. Nick Property Owner

  • "First the positives."

    Lovely location and setting, the garden is a fantastic size and the river is so peaceful and having parking is brilliant. The cottage it's self is a beautiful building and was very comfortable. The cost for a week's stay was amazing too and was a good base to explore from. Next the not so positives. The cottage is obviously a work in progress, you can see that from the crack in the bedroom ceiling, stairs and gates in the garden. The bathroom and kitchen need some upgrade work to be done at some point. The stairs are not suitable for children as the gaps between the spindles are too far apart and a small child could easily fall through. The gates aren't suitable for small dogs as they can easily get out which my jackchi did on arrival so we had to block them off with the black plastic box. Ok so the negatives we had was the cleanliness. None of the beds had mattress protectors or pillow protectors and the sheet was marked on the one single bed and were quite rough. There were cobwebs everywhere, and yes I appreciate it's an old building and they can appear overnight but some had been there a while especially those in the radiators. The kitchen cupboard fronts were very marked and greasy to the point I wiped them all down myself upon arrival. The stairs were also in need of a good hoover (hoover left in the cupboard was useless). Overall for the money it was acceptable but the owners seriously need to up their game on the cleanliness.

    All bedding was new this year and the linnen is freshly washed ever week. You are right cobwebs seem to appear immediately you dust them away, although those on radiators will be addressed. Cracks appear as the cottages breathes being of stone construction. I will pass on comments to James Dyson on the vacuum cleaner. Overall glad you had a good time. Property Owner

  • "Overall the cottage was lovely, the left plug point in the main bedroom next to the bedside cabinet will not accept a plug, also I would not say the garden was fully enclosed as the gaps in the bottom of the gates could let a small dog through easily if not watched."

    The bedding was really lovely patterns, and having some books and games there is great. The river and garden is amazing. Would definitely recommend.

    We will have the plug checked out. The gates now both have wire at the bottow to prevent small dogs visiting where they are not meant too. We are unable to fit solid gates due to the wind blowing them in. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "Lovely old character cottage with beautiful garden!"

    Set in a peaceful village, this great cottage has everything you need for a perfect and comfortable stay. Good sized rooms and all the equipment/resources needed for an enjoyable break. The booking process was easy, and the owner was very helpful. There are nice walks around the area and a pub within walking distance (shame we didn't have time to try it out!). The photos don't do it justice -we would highly recommend and would love to return again.

The property

Carmarthen 6.9 miles.

Nestled in the luscious Welsh countryside in the charming village of Llanpumsaint near Carmarthen, Carmarthenshire is Ty Newydd.

This idyllic, dog-friendly holiday home is set in an historic, white-washed, stone chapel meaning it boasts charming character features including arched, original doors, exposed beams and A-frames, and a woodburning stove, as well as a spacious, enclosed garden, making it perfect for small families of couples looking for a romantic retreat in Wales with their beloved canine companions.

Cross the threshold into the heart of the home where you can unwind on the plush sofa in front of the Smart TV and the soothing crackle of the woodburning stove while the designated chef cooks up a storm in the fully-equipped kitchen.

Gather the family around the dining table to tuck in, or if the sun is shining, step outside to delight in an alfresco affair where the stream running at the back of the garden creates a truly tranquil setting.

When stars fill the sky, head inside to wash off the day’s adventures in the ground-floor bathroom before sloping off to sleep in either the double or twin bedroom.

If you can tear yourself away from this idyllic setting, head to a local pub or The Hollybrook Tavern where you can treat your loved ones to delicious meals and evening drinks.

Alternatively, venture further afield to the bustling town of Carmarthen to immerse yourself in the past at Carmarthenshire County Museum, the remains of the Roman Amphitheatre or the ruins of the once impressive Carmarthen Castle.

Other nearby, exciting attractions include the Gwili Steam Railway where you can take rides through breath-taking countryside on antique steam trains and the National Botanic Garden of Wales which is bursting at the seams with stunning gardens, dense woodland and a unique tropical glasshouse.

The tranquil yet famous spiritual centre of Skanda Vale also lies close to the property, the site receives around 90,000 pilgrims each year and is undoubtedly a must-see for visitors to the surrounding area; spend a full day exploring three temples and watching the poojas, a truly unique and fantastic experience.

The rugged Welsh coastline is also within reach, take a refreshing stroll in the sea air along Llansteffan Beach where your canine companion can roam the expansive sands freely while you admire views across the Bristol Channel.

Make memories at Ty Newydd.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
