  • "This is a lovely barn conversion which was done 8 years ago ."

    Three good sized bedrooms with two bathrooms . Large kitchen diner and lounge. Huge tv in the dining room and smaller one in the lounge . Beds nice and comfortable. Washing machine and tumble drier in the kitchen . Door on front door not safe as there is a piece missing in the wood above door . Tap at kitchen sink loose as is tap on en-suite sink. Lounge settees need a good vacuum as there is a lot of debris between cushions. Hot tub on site empty on arrival and the owner said I needed to pay a further £150 to use it for the week. Despite phoning Sykes cottages twice I’m still waiting for a phone call to resolve this issue . I paid the owner as I wanted the use of the hot tub but feel very unhappy that I was put in this position . The owner states that he had asked Sykes cottages to refer any clients to him regarding the hot tub. There is nothing on the website to say thère is an extra charge . The young man I spoke to said there was no hot tub mentioned on the website but this is not true . The cottage makes a lovely base but apart from the hot tub there is nothing else available on the property.

  • "Earlier, the website said that there was a dishwasher in the property but going by previous guests’ comments and our visit, there is certainly no dishwasher."

    Also there is no shared communal garden, just a big driveway and a fence separating the neighbours’ garden and the barn. The hot tub is not included in the price quoted for the property and needs to be paid extra. There were a few broken things such as the kitchen tap and the hot water tap in one of the bathrooms. The electric shower in the other bathroom wasn’t very good and it’s temperature control was bad. There are no windows in the property which makes ventilation in the property a bit difficult. Now, the good stuff- plenty of space. Beds are very comfortable. Very well equipped house with lots of pots and pans, tea, coffee, spices etc., towels, bedding. The host, Lee, was very welcoming and relaxed. Location wise quite close to the big retail park with Morrison’s and national botanic garden. Had a wonderful stay there in spite of the minor irritants.

  • "First thing first Lee the host was fantastic and really friendly, perfect area and animals on site didn’t really make to much noise but was great to see them."

    The home itself is wonderful and plenty of space the thing it lacked was upkeep lots of broken facilities that was temporarily fixed e.g sink tap. Shower in jack and Jill we could not get to a temperature you could shower in. There is a private hot tub on site but this is a paid extra which should be included in the price for this listing in my opinion as very expensive for what you get. No dishwasher as advertised though no big issue. Not really A shared garden as this is on owners property. Would be perfect if had a play area for children as you are abit out on the sticks. If the upkeep of the property was kept which I understood financial situations have been tough due to covid but these seem more historical and an actual garden and play area this house would be perfect for any family. Thank you for a well needed break from reality!

  • "Great place to stay, facilities good quality, quiet rural location and the hot tub was a real bonus as it was not in the details when we booked."

    Lee the owner is very welcoming and helpful. If you want a peaceful and relaxing environment but yet be located within easy reach of Carmarthen, Pembroke and Ceredigion then the Coach House is ideal.

  • "Just for driving directions, off the A48 onto Heol Llangynwyr , you take the first Street on the right and it's right at the end of the lane after all the houses, called Penylan farm (big black iron gates) you need to drive right to end of the lane until it pretty much runs out."

    Owner Lee is a lovely chap, we hope to come back.

    We did have a problem with one of the beds but we reported this to the owner and they fixed it very quickly. Lots of space and in a lovely quiet and private spot.

    No dishwasher!! Beds were NOT very comfortable, but that may be a personal choice. Lee the owner, was very nice and very helpful in helping us where to go for food and cab companies etc.

    The owner is very friendly and helpful. Great cottage would highly recommend for exploring the Carmarthen and Pembrokeshire. All the little things like tea, coffee and milk were provided that really helped. Tons of fluffy towels. Great holiday.

The property

Carmarthen 3.7 miles.

The Coach House is a converted barn offering bags of character, tucked away down a private driveway, enveloped by Carmarthenshire countryside.

It is well-suited to families and friends looking to discover the sweeping coast and partake in a wide range of activities in the immediate area, such as walking, cycling and birdwatching.

Having been built into a hill, there are multiple levels throughout the property and a lovely sense of charm and traditional style.

Entrance is gained through the double doors and up a step to the farmhouse kitchen, which has all you need to whip up a tasty meal to be had around the dining table.

Head through to the spacious sitting room, which has overhead Velux windows streaming in the natural light and plenty of seating for you to spread out and relax after one of your many adventures.

Throw open the French doors to the patio and let a cool breeze through one sunny afternoon.

You have three bedrooms offering flexible sleeping arrangements, each with access to either a Jack-and-Jill bathroom or shower room.

Being close to the south coast of wales, you have some wonderful beaches and rocky coves to explore, while other attractions include Brechfa Forest, the National Botanic Gardens of Wales, Pembrey Country Park, home to an array of wildlife and Dylan Thomas' Writing Shed.

Further afield is the stunning Pembrokeshire Coast National Park offering hundreds of miles of footpaths, an array of watersports activities and tantalising landscape scenery, plenty to do for the family.

The Cambrian Mountains are also worth a visit for you outdoors enthusiasts and closer to home is the Brecon Beacons National Park.

A delightful home-from-home experience can be had here at The Coach House.
