  • "A lovely farm cottage."

    Very friendly and helpful owner. Clean. Well equipped kitchen. Comfortable beds. Good sized gardens and plenty of parking space. Ideal for pet owners, as two of the bedrooms have separate outside access. Only downsides were poor internet speed and mobile signals - almost inevitable deep in the Welsh countryside!

    Thank you for your comments about the cottage we are glad you had a pleasant stay. We are sorry about the WI-FI there was an external issue with our provider and this has now been rectified. Please stay safe and we hope to see you again in the near future. Property Owner

  • "Fantastic farmhouse once found down the long lane to it!"

    !. The house had everything you would need to self cater & too spend many hours in. Big enough areas for the family to split themselves up if needed. 3 x bedrooms 1 x double ensuite, 2 x twin bedded rooms 1 x bathroom within the farmhouse & an annex room just outside the front door which also had an ensuite bathroom. 1 x huge living room, 1 x snug room leading to a big kitchen area with another back door leading out on to the rear lawn area. The farmhouse is in such a peaceful & tranquil area that you could hear nothing but the wildlife, the dogs enjoyed the grounds around the house going mad at all the different animal scents. Took the in-laws away for a week to cheer them up, although the farmhouse had many steps inside they both managed them well which was a relief. Within easy reach of 2 x supermarkets Tesco`s & Morrisons being the closest it was easy to get the food in for the week. Good location for many of the lovely towns & beaches to visit, many within 45mins to 1 hour. Lovely owners who we met a couple of times to make sure everything was ok.

  • "Track from the main road to the cottage very difficult to use especially in wet weather."

    Steps outside property are fairly steep. Apart from that the cottage is amazing, well equipped, comfortable and homely.

    had lots of fun bat spotting in the evening and star watching, even saw a few shooting stars, we'll definately come back again.

  • "Accommodation was ideal for our party of four adults and four children (aged 10 to 14 years)."

    The converted barn was spacious, well appointed and had a lovely homely feeling. The location was great allowing visits to many lovely beaches within a 30 to 45 minute drive and also provided seclusion in a very quiet countryside location. Would have no hesitation in returning.

The property

Set in deep Carmarthen countryside, this stone-built cottage boasts uninterrupted views over luscious greenery, near the small villages of Porthyrhyd and Llanddarog.

This delightful accommodation is approached via a country road and is ideal for families and friends looking to explore the beautiful south coast, where you have Pembrey Country Park, Carmarthen town, Brecon Beacons, the many castles and beaches of Carmarthenshire and the stunning Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.

With a bright and spacious interior, a mix of modern and traditional furnishings and tasteful décor throughout, what more could you ask for in a holiday to Wales?

Spend your relaxation time in the lounge on the ground floor, with a Smart TV.

A second TV is on an axle between the kitchen/dining and the seating area where you can watch your favourite progammes from the dining table and seating area.

This interior space is laid out with a few steps down to the kitchen, perfect for enjoying hearty feasts, competitive board games and late night chats before bed.

Climb to the living room on the first floor and spend an evening in front of the woodburning stove, which will be much-appreciated on return from a long walk or cycle ride during the cooler seasons.

Enjoy a game of pool with your loved ones and throw open the French door to reveal a flourishing garden in summertime.

A further set of stairs lead to the first of the bedrooms, including a double with its very own en-suite shower room and a twin.

A few more steps up will take you to the mezzanine landing overlooking the pool table, through to the second twin room, which is ideal for those travelling with children.

An annexe on the ground floor which has a separate entrance, has a king size bed and an en-suite bathroom.

This is ideal for a couple who like the peace and quiet away from the main house and yet only 5 steps away, same level, from the main entrance.

Find a range of amenities close by, including shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as Carmarthen's Norman castle and site of a Roman amphitheatre, as well as many opportunities for walking, birdwatching, cycling and golf.

Explore the finest gardens in Wales at the National Botanic Gardens and Aberglasney Gardens which is set in the stunning Tywi Valley.

Spend a day at the beach or on the dry ski slopes at Pembrey Country Park and discover a selection of unusual shops at Llandeilo.

This is a fantastic retreat for your next holiday to Wales.
