  • "This cottage was wonderful, the fire was amazing and the beds really comfortable."

    Kitchen had everything you need (and we are real foodies) The location is picture perfect with amazing walks right on your doorstep but in easy reach of Llandeilo for everything you might need. We will be back!

  • "Absolutely beautiful setting and a lovely cottage!"

    It was clean and comfortable, with everything we needed for the week. Bara brith, Prosecco and tea and coffee were a nice touch, and there was plenty of space for 6 of us! Our favourite feature was the open fire, which made the house feel super cosy on dark, rainy nights. This house is a hidden gem and we will absolutely be back again!

Llandeilo 7.4 miles, Bannau Brycheiniog National Park 8.5 miles; Carmarthen 22 miles.

A charming stone-built country cottage overlooking the ruins of a medieval abbey set among gorgeous countryside, Heron House is a haven of peace and beauty.

It is an ideal hideaway for family and friends looking for a tranquil getaway in the Carmarthenshire countryside.

Park off road and upon entering the property, you will be met with a well-equipped flag-stoned country kitchen the perfect space to whip up a hearty meal after a day exploring the beautiful local area.

At the end of a day spent exploring the nearby nature reserve or enjoying one the many beautiful walks, repair to the spacious dining room seating up to 10 people to enjoy your meal.

As the evening wears on, settle down into a characterful wooden-beamed sitting room with a corner sofa ranged around an open fireplace.

When sleep calls, enjoy a relaxing shower in the ground-floor shower room or soak in the freestanding bath or walk-in shower upstairs, before choosing between four beautifully furnished bedrooms where care has been taken to maintain the charm of this lovely old building.

Choose between a king-size room with views of the abbey, a tastefully furnished double, a twin with sofa and a ground-floor twin.

With amazing views of the abbey, make the most of the outdoor space by dining alfresco or enjoying the communal garden or perhaps take an after-dinner stroll through the meadow down to the shores of the lake.

Heron House is simply an idyllic base for your next adventures to Carmarthenshire.

Abbey Cottages

Abbey Cottages comprises four beautiful, stone-built, terraced properties, set in the shadow of a ruined 12th century abbey. Nestled among 23 acres of meadow and hedgerows, beside the shore of Upper Talley Lake, Abbey Cottages offers a tranquil base for friends or families to enjoy the beautiful Welsh countryside, with nearby access to the Bannau Brycheiniog National Park and the lively market town of Llandeilo. Outside, each cottage benefits from off-road parking and use of the enclosed communal garden. Barbecues are also available. Guests are free to roam the land surrounding the cottages, where you will find the intriguing ruins of Talley Abbey as well as access to the nature reserve lying between Upper and Lower Talley Lake; ideal for fishing, birdwatching or simply relaxing. For the more active-minded, a range of fantastic walking routes through Talley Woodlands lie on the doorstep and the award-winning cycling routes of the Black Mountains are close at hand. Built from the stones of the ruined abbey, after it was destroyed during the time of Henry VIII, the cottages themselves are equipped with an ample range of amenities, including children’s facilities such as highchairs, travel cots and stairgates, as well as a selection of games, providing characterful and homely accommodation for groups of all sizes. In the local area, Talley village offers a shop, The Old Smithy - Yr Hen Efail, within a short walk while the National Trust owned community run Cwmdu Inn is 2 miles away in the picturesque hamlet of Cwmdu. For more amenities, the thriving market town of Llandeilo (recently voted The Best Place to Live in Wales by the Sunday Times) is just 7 miles away, where there is a great selection of shops, pubs, and eateries, as well as Llandyfeisant Church and Dinefwr Castle. Beyond this, the historic county of Carmarthen offers a wide range of attractions, such as Aberglasny Gardens, Fan Gyhirych, Pen y Fan, Cefn Llechid, Castell Carreg Cennen and Garn Goch Y Gaer Fawr. Abbey Cottages is an idyllic group of properties ideal for immersing yourself in the incredible scenery of Carmarthenshire.
