  • "The cottage was excellent on every level."

    It was very clean, bed was comfortable, kitchen was well stocked with crockery, glasses, knives etc. Heating worked efficiently, I was nice and cosy. The shower pressure was excellent, with plenty of hot water. Location in town was superb, walking distance to various supermarkets, restaurants and of course pubs! Being on my own, I felt very safe and secure. Will definitely book again next year.

  • "The cottage was charming and in an excellent location, 2mins walk to the very centre of town, but tucked away in a quiet almost traffic-free road."

    When I had a query, the owner responded quickly. During my extended stay, I found the lady 'Maria' who maintained the property for the owner, to be a huge asset, friendly, positive, nothing too much trouble ...despite obviously being very busy. Sweet cottage, great location.

  • "The cottage was very well kept and was absolutely perfect for everything we needed."

    We were walking the Carmarthenshire section of the Wales Coast Path and transport accessibility could not have been better: just a couple of minutes walk from the bus station, and 5 minutes from the train station. Various supermarkets also within a 5 minute walk, including Lidl and Marks and Spencer. Also a very nice café with awesome cocktails, Cofio, just around the corner in the square! The kitchen was very well equipped for everything you need for cooking, and the bed was very comfortable and spacious bedroom. Very nice living room space with a comfortable sofa and massive tv screen. Very quiet location, although there is a pub half a minute up the road and the noise can be heard in the living room, you can't hear absolutely anything from the bedroom! Thank you so much for a perfect stay, and also the little touches which were very much appreciated- the milk, wine and cherry cake

  • "Very comfortable and well equipped and much more spacious than it looks from the outside."

    A good place for us to stay when visiting family in Carmarthen. Parking not a problem as the station car park is only a short walk away. You can pay the parking on your phone so you don't have to go back to the car to top up.

  • "We had a lovely stay."

    It is such a great location. The town centre is just a very short walk up the road. We had everything we needed. Even the knives in the kitchen were sharp, which is a genuine first for us. Thanks for everything.

  • "This small but perfectly formed cottage was great for our family of three."

    It was comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped with nice touches from the owners, like a welcome bottle of wine and milk in the fridge. Don’t be put off by lack of parking. You can park at the station, five minutes’ walk away over the bridge, for £16 a week.
