The property

Resting in the heart of Carmarthen is this characterful single-storey cottage, Llys-Yr-Onnen, offering three guests a perfect base for a break to South Wales.

Within strolling distance of the town centre and the train station, Llys-Yr-Onnen boasts charming interiors and a patio area, with plenty of space in the lobby for bike storage, ideal for a couple or small family.

Spend time relaxing in the homely sitting room where a Smart TV can entertain you into the evening after a busy day of exploring.

Perch at the breakfast bar while the chef of the group gets acquainted with the kitchen, fitted with all the essential appliances for a self-catered stay.

A dining room offers somewhere to sit and plan your itinerary as well as tuck into delicious feasts.

Freshen up in the shower room featuring a walk-in shower enclosure before settling down in either of the two delightful bedrooms, with the choice of a double bedroom and a single bedroom.

The cottage lies just inside the old town walls and is just a short walk from the nearest shops and pubs, with St Catherine's Walk and Merlin's Walk being favourite shopping hotspots.

Carmarthen's links to Arthurian legends can be further explored in the Carmarthenshire County Museum, home to the last piece of Merlin's Oak, among other local history exhibits.

Explore the heritage of Wales' oldest town by visiting the Roman Amphitheatre before finding the 12th century castle ruins on Notts Square, once tasked with protecting Carmarthen Bay.

Carmarthen is home to a number of delightful parks and green areas, whilst the River Towy running through the town provides lovely waterside scenery for strolls.

Make a trip over to National Botanic Garden of Wales for a lovely outing exploring the formal gardens, huge tropical glasshouse, enchanting woodlands and serene lakes.

Take a trip back in time on the nostalgic antique trains at Gwili Steam Railway, offering a wonderful way to soak up the scenery without moving a muscle.

Enjoy a wonderful break to South Wales from Llys-Yr-Onnen.
