  • “Had a brilliant time, probably ...”
    Had a brilliant time, probably wouldn't go back, not because anything was wrong. It's always nice to go to new places

The property

A quaint end-terrace cottage on the edge of the church square in the rural village of Llansaint, close to Kidwelly, a riverside town with imposing castle ruins.

The cottage is a perfect base for families or friends looking to enjoy beautiful countryside, with a fabulous mix of undulating hills, woodland and stunning coastline, whilst also being near to the shoreline of Carmarthen Bay.

There are three comfortable bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room and distant sea views, as well as a family bathroom on the first floor.

Downstairs, there is a modern kitchen, with everything you need to make the most of the dining room which leads into a spacious, double-aspect sitting room with a warming woodburner and doors opening onto the patio, perfect for relaxing at any time of year after a day exploring the local area.

You’ve also got another cosy sitting room with this space offering a sofa bed with room for two.

Outside, you can sit in the enclosed cottage garden on the elevated sitting area with a barbecue, ideal for alfresco dining whilst you enjoy a glass of something cool and plan your adventures for the days ahead.

Carmarthen Bay can be seen glistening in the distance and it’s just a short walk from the village down to the estuary, which opens up fabulous river walks in the area with the Wales Coastal Path running alongside the property.

Venture a little further to Pembrey Country Park, a 15 minute drive, for a myriad of family days out, with nature trails through pretty woodlands, miles of sandy beaches and fantastic activities to keep everyone amused - from laser tag and tobogganing to adventure playgrounds - or maybe just relax at one of the many picnic and barbecue sites.

The area offers numerous outdoor activities such as cycling, horse riding, sea fishing and walks along the miles of the coastal path to explore in both directions.

Slightly further afield, why not jump in the car for half an hour and take a trip to the Llanelli Wetland Centre?

You can hand-feed rare geese, marvel at the flamingos or just enjoy the acres of idyllic scenery.

Alternatively, within a 45 minute drive, there’s the quaint village of Laugharne with its glorious castle and Dylan Thomas’s iconic boathouse, not to mention Llansteffan Castle and the impressive Pendine Sands, stretching on for seven miles.

You could also enjoy a great day out by heading inland to the Brecon Beacons National Park and sample the boutique shops in the town of Llandeilo.

No matter what you decide to do, this cottage is an ideal base to retreat to all year round.
