  • "Our family (wife, two boys and dog) had a fantastic five-day stay at The Lodge."

    It's a peaceful location and the owners Sonia and David couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful. The accommodation is of a high standard and includes a lovely hot tub and the grounds are extensive and provide plenty of space for dogs to enjoy. Lots to do within a few miles; highlights for us included the Swiss Valley Reservoir circular walk, Llannelli beach and Pembury Country Park. Also many friendly pubs nearby. All in all, a great holiday!

  • "Lovely location running stream, and country views."

    David and Sonia went out of their way to make us feel welcome and accomodated. Comfortable and clean accomodation, and wood fired hot tub to boot, perfect for star gazing on a clear night. Their two very friendly springer spaniels who endured the neurotic yappings of our dysfunctional Jack Russel were also a bonus, when they occasionaly visited. We had a happy stay, thank you to you both.

  • "We stayed at the lodge from the 2nd to the 9th October 2021 On arrival we was greeted by Sonia and David the owners they were both extremely welcoming they showed us round and told us how things worked."

    Sonia had even sent us a txt earlier in the day to ask if we would like the hot tub fire lighting so it would be ready for when we arrived which was extremely kind of them. The lodge is set in beautiful surroundings and all you can see in every direction is stunning greenery. The lodge was clean and extremely well stocked with everything you need for your stay e.g tea towels,washing up liquid,toilet rolls etc. There is no wi fi and you also have to light a fire using wood to heat the hot tub but we knew this and didn’t mind as it was part of the adventure of our holiday It does take around 3 hours for the hot tub to heat up depending on the temperature of the water but we just got a drink and enjoyed the scenery while we was waiting for it to heat up. There are some beautiful walks around this area and lots of things to see and do within a short drive. If your looking for a relaxing stress free, forget about your troubles holiday book the lodge you will be very well looked after by Sonia and David and be surrounded by nature. Thank you so much Sonia and David for letting us stay in your caravan with such beautiful surroundings looking after us and making us feel so welcome Hopefully we will get the opportunity to visit you both again in the future. Kind regards Colin & Karen.

  • "Excellent friendly hosts, very attentive, anything we needed they were at our door with it."

    Very clean caravan and comfortable seating. spacious living room and main bedroom, dressing room a great addition. Good location and local amenities, only a short drive to the beach. Only one slight disappointment was the hot tub, we like the luxury of lights and bubbles! A good suggestion is to take flip flops with you to walk across back to the lodge when you get out. A lovely few days escape, just wish we could have stayed longer.

  • "Stayed there a week in September 2021."

    Absolutely lovely couple, really loved the place Sonia and David thought of everything in the lodge. It had everything in there without bringing anything and more. Lovely views, clean lodge and location remote but easily accessible to places. If I had a negative point at all (and it’s only a slight negative)it would be that the hot tub wasn’t changed and got very slimy after a few days however it is powered by a wood burner and David came and set it up and lit it every day for us which was nice. Thank you would go again definitely. Jayne and Frank

  • "The accommodation was spotless."

    Well equipped but more importantly our hosts were so welcoming (nothing was a problem). A perfect spot away from everything but only a short drive to the beach. We would especially like to thank David and Sonia for the loan of their perfect dog 'Lolita

  • "Thé lodge, in a very peaceful location, is very clean and extremely comfortable with lovely sofa and armchair."

    It is very well equipped and has everything you could possibly need. There is plenty of storage space both in the kitchen and main bedroom.....even a walk in wardrobe with plenty of hangers. The beds were comfortable with good bed linen but the twins were rather narrow. The owners, David and Sonia, were very helpful providing us with information about possible visits. We were the first guests and a couple of teething problems were sorted out very quickly to everyone’s satisfaction. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit . Thank you.

The property

Pontyates 2.6 miles.

Nestled in the charming hamlet of Five Roads near Pontyates, home to two traditional pubs, is this delightful Lodge set on a 40 acre farm.

Boasting remarkable views of the rolling countryside, as well-as a luxurious hot tub for a soak under the stars, this welcoming abode is the idyllic location for a group of four friends looking to get away from it all or a family holiday.

Be greeted by ample off-road parking, leave your vehicle to take in the quaint surroundings with refreshing, earthy air.

For those wanting a more energetic time the Carmarthenshire footpath network runs through the farm and the renowned Swiss Valley Cycle Path is just 900 metres away.

Take a few steps up to the lodge to discover the lovely open-plan living space; here you can unwind in the sitting area on the sumptuous sofa as you catch up on some well-earned television.

Step over to the compact kitchen area to prepare a heart-warming meal; cook up a storm in the electric oven or take advantage of the microwave for an easy meal.

When dinner is served, settle down at the wooden dining table, break open a bottle of wine and toast to your rural retreat. For an alternative dining arrangement, gather around the outdoor table and BBQ to enjoy a tasty dish, al fresco-style, before taking a leisurely dip in the hot tub. As the evening draws to a close, head back inside to the warmth, and rinse off in the shower room to prepare for a night's embrace.

Choose between two pretty bedrooms, a king-size with a handy en-suite WC and a twin.

Wake-up with a steaming cup of coffee in the garden to begin your day with handsome views of luscious greenery.

Lodge is an excellent base for exploring, visit the cascading Trimsaran waterfall, stroll around the loop of Swiss Valley (lower) Reservoir, or be amazed by the medieval remains of Kidwelly Castle/Castell Cydweli, which dates back to the 12th century.

Take a short drive into the wonderful Country Park and Beach at Pembrey or head off to Ffos Las Racecoure.

Travel a little further afield to the market town of Llanelli or to The National Botanic Garden of Wales, for an engrossing walk around the gardens, which is also home to a tropical butterfly house, as well as cycling along the South coast at The Millennium Coastal Path, offering amazing sights of the sea.

You can also spend time at The Wetlands then enjoy a sumptuous afternoon tea at Lanelly House.

Settled near the River Towy, is the county town of Carmarthen, home to a 12th century castle, Gwili Steam Railway for a scenic ride through Wales and Oriel Myrddin Gallery to view contemporary art and culture.

For a relaxing escape with your friends or family stay at The Lodge.
