  • "There were nine adults staying for a week and we all the had a fabulous time."

    Huw the owner was there to greet us on arrival day and we saw him quite a few times about the farm and he told us about the Amman Valley Trotting Club and so we had a lovely afternoon watching the racing! The house was a dream to stay in and there was plenty of room for us all as the place was huge. We also made use of the bar-b-que and the outside eating area when the sun was out! Everything was clean and the furniture and fittings were of a very high standard.

  • "This property is just an absolute dream!"

    Everything about it was just incredible. Kids loved having the freedom of playing outside and seeing the horse's. Neighbours were lovely and dropped some delicious home made éclairs around to us and they were great with the kids. Beautiful beach within a 40 minute drive and local tesco just a couple minutes drive away. Local park with water splash park for the little ones was good fun. Enjoyed a mystery adventure guide around Cardiff which is about an hour away which was enjoyed by all and a quick stop in Barry so the kids could enjoy the fun fair. Overall the property has great location if you don't mind driving a little. Much enjoyed holiday in an absolutely beautiful house.

  • "To access the property you have to have a fob to get through the gates."

    The owner let us in on our first arrival. We spent Christmas week in Grooms quarters. It is huge. There was a nice christmas tree though we also bought our own fairy lights for the sitting room. The kitchen is well stocked and we could do lots of cooking and baking with ease. Only had to buy a food blender. Lots of tea towels and towels were available. Big double fridge and freezer was big enough for food and drink for 8. Tescos was close by. The place was warm and underfloor heating lovely. It was the five bathrooms and bedrooms that sold it to us as we are three families staying there. There are large crates for two dogs which i thought was great though I don't have a dog myself. The washer and dryer was well used. There are plenty of walks direct from the property though it pretty much rained all week so we were not out all that long each day. The only thing not to my taste was the old fashioned bedding, bedroom chairs and big red sofa which were like something out of an old people's home but we moved the furniture around which helped it feel more cosy. The owner rather read us the riot act about being clean and leaving it as found it which to be honest rather perplexed and annoyed me as I would not have done otherwise. But i guess they have had bad experiences before. That said I would stay there again in a heartbeat. The positives far far outweighed any negatives.

    Huw (the owner) is very accomodating and was genuinely pleased to help on the odd occasions when we needed advice. Would thoroughly recommend this property.

  • "We had a great stay at the Grooms Quarters (6 adults."

    2 teens and 1 dog). The welcome was excellent, with a tour of the property and the facilities it has. The house is completed to a high spec, which was lovely at making our stay so comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped with everything that we could have needed throughout our stay. For example, we would usually bring our own wok and slow cooker, as most properties do not provide these from our experience. However, we were pleasantly surprised to find large pans, slow cooker and more at the property! The owner really has thought of everything to make your stay perfect. The views are amazing and so quiet.

  • "Absolutely 5 star."

    This property was perfect for our family holiday comprising of three generations, it is very spacious and immaculately presented. The rooms are very comfortable. I have booked a lot of properties through Sykes and this was definitely one of the best. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you need to cook a meal for a large group. The owner is very welcoming and helpful, always on hand of needed. The great views from the property are a bonus.

    We had 9 people plus a baby, and the bedroom/bathroom layout meant that everyone was catered for, and the large lounge and kitchen were ideal for family time. Our host Huw was really helpful and it was a pleasure to watch him with the horses each day.

    House huge, even though we spent most of the time in the kitchen socialising. Bedrooms also huge and great to have the large number of bathrooms. Would def book again.

  • "We had a fantastic time, the house was absolutely amazing."

    There were 5 grown up couples in our group and there was loads of room for all of us, the house is huge. My absolute only criticism would be lack of kitchen equipment, could have done with a jug or similar for the microwave, a decent frying pan and some decent pans. (I know lots of people don't cook when they go away) I cooked a full english breakfast for 10 of us and it was a challenge. But, honestly, it would not stop us going again, in fact we probably will. It was wonderful.

  • "Huw was a brilliant host; he was very welcoming and made us feel at home."

    Nothing was too much trouble and he helped us when needed. The house was fantastic! Really spacious and comfortable for a large family group of 9. We consisted of a family of 5 plus both sets of grandparents so it was brilliant to have 2 huge en-suite rooms for the grandparents and then the third floor for the kids. The children loved the huge bath (6 year old could swim in it!) and the fact that all the bedrooms had tvs in them! They especially loved the fact that they had Netflix in every room too. We were extremely lucky with the weather and had great days out on the beaches of the Gower. We also visited Llyn Llech Owain country park, the mumbles, fed the red kites and went to Dinefwr castle. We also walked along the river in Ammanford. There were things that we would have liked to have done but they weren’t open in February and we have all said that we would definitely visit this area again. Would 100% recommend.

  • "The Grooms Quarters is a beautiful property, the photo's on here really don't do it justice."

    The facilities are superb, with very modern bathrooms with showers throughout and one bath. All rooms are airy and spacious, with comfortable beds, and cosy furniture. The dining room/kitchen is well fitted out with all modern conveniences, and the dining table is plenty big enough, and comfortable, for 10 people. The underfloor heating on the ground floor is amazing, and lovely to wake up to on a cold, wet winter morning. The owner greeted us on arrival and gave me a guided tour of the property, including the use of all the systems installed. There was ice in the freezer, two bottles of Prosecco in the fridge, and various other kitchen items had been supplied for our use. There was also a lovely Christmas tree set up and decorated with lights and decorations in the hallway. The property is situated on a working farm, but there is practically no noise or disturbance, and it is nice to watch the horses being exercised in the mornings. I would highly recommend this lovely property for a family/friends getaway, it is a great base from which to explore the surrounding area, and also a lovely, quiet, and peaceful place to relax, kick back, and forget the outside world. You will not be disappointed with this property, it is worth every penny of the price asked, and then some.

  • "This was a lovely house to stay in for a few days with our extended family."

    The only 2 things I would mention is that a lot of noise carries to the higher or lower floors which is not helpful when small children are getting to sleep or older people being woken up early in the morning when the little ones were playing downstairs. There were some kitchen aids missing like a measuring jug and some scales. Otherwise it was really well equipped and very spacious.

    Our group of 9 never felt cramped or fought over a bathroom and enjoyed it immensely. The setting was lovely, with beautiful horses, and there were really great circular walks for the dog from just down the road. The kids loved skateboarding down the drive. Only point to note was that the games room was occupied during our stay - but we didn’t need the space anyways.

The property

Resting between the majestic Bannau Brycheiniog National Park (Brecon Beacons National Park) and the Carmarthen Bay, on the outskirts of the bustling town of Ammanford is this superb property, Pant y Gaseg Cottage.

This spacious accommodation enjoys three floors of contemporary-styling and is set up perfectly for large groups of friends and families seeking to explore the beauty of this part of South Wales.

Step into the spacious kitchen, where the Range cooker takes centre stage before all of the other appliances that you will require to rustle up a tasty treat for you and your loved ones during your week-long stay.

If the weather is on your side, head outside and dine alfresco whilst catching the final glimpses of sunshine before you retire to the sitting room.

The sitting room comes with a plush seating arrangement, ideal for the adults to cosy up in front of the fire whilst the younger guests of the group head to the computer games room to while away a couple of hours.

As the evening draws to a close, venture up the staircase to catch your rest within one of the well-presented bedrooms, each boasting a refreshing ambiance and a TV, ensuring a perfect space to unwind in between your Carmarthenshire adventures.

On the first floor you will find two king-size bedrooms with en-suite showers, as well as an additional king-size bedroom, whilst upstairs there is a further king-size bedroom and a twin bedroom.

To the outside, a stable block is within striking distance of the property, and guests are welcome to bring their own horses along to discover the area’s superb bridle paths.

If you don’t feel like cooking one evening, or are looking to celebrate a special occasion head into the town of Llanelli where a number of pubs, bars and eateries await you.

For those feeling active, head to the Western Bannau Brycheiniog (Brecon Beacons) where you will find the Black Mountain Range offering opportunities for walking, mountain biking and horse riding, as well as catching glimpses of red kites in the Red Kite Feeding Centre, Llanddeusant.

Alternatively, head to the woodland of Allt Nant-y-Ci which is ideal for more leisurely strolls and off-road bike trails for those feeling more adventurous.
