Beautiful views


This detached, stone farmhouse, dating back to the 18th century, was previously situated on a working farm. Its predecessors included the great great grandparents of the famous poet Dylan Thomas, who are recorded as farming here in the late 18th to the early 19th century. Situated in 15 acres of land and accessed via a private lane, Fferm Y Graig offers peace and tranquillity in this secluded rural retreat, perfect for a relaxing getaway, with countryside views and an abundance of wildlife. The farmhouse has retained lots of its original character including open beams and an inglenook fireplace, where a traditional woodburner has been added for those cosy nights in. Outside is a raised patio area for guests to relax, with stunning views overlooking the surrounding farmland. Conveniently located close to the historical market town of Carmarthen, it is a great location for exploring in any direction. Nearby is Llansteffan Castle, with its stunning views and unspoilt beach.
The historic town of Laugharne is also close by, with its imposing castle and links to the famous Welsh poet Dylan Thomas. Within easy access are Tenby, Saundersfoot, Pendine and Amroth. There are numerous beaches and historical places of interest to visit within easy driving distance. Oakwood, Folly Farm, The National Botanical Gardens of Wales, Pembrey Country Park, Aberglasney Gardens and Anna’s Welsh Zoo provide fun days out for families looking for adventure. Horse riding, walking, cycling and golfing are all available locally. Fferm y Graig offers a perfect retreat for those who want to getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, but equally it offers a perfect base for those wanting to explore the hidden treasures of west Wales.

    There are a few good points about FFERM Y GRAIG but only a few: The cottage was exceptionally clean and there are most items needed for a self-catering stay. It is very quiet if you want complete isolation. It has a pleasant spacious garden. Sadly this is where the good points end. There are derelict barns immediately next to the property (not depicted in any of the photos seen prior to booking) andnot mentioned in cottage description. There is no washing line to hang clothes No replacement lightbulbs at all The cottage layout is a major issue although the description says the bathrom is on the ground floor it is impossible to use it in the night without waking everyone up due to all the creaking doors and general position of it. Both the double mattresses are tired and jn need of replacing none of the people who stayed in the double room slept well on any night. There are no fields or tracks to walk the dog as its all overgrown and jungle-like. A drive to Llansteffan or Green Castle woods is necessary. The driveway is so overgrown it suceeded in scratching both vehicles used on our trip. No attentiveness from caretaker one visit and although contacted by phone did not return to the propety until the day before we left. No phonesignal at all not even in case of emergency. A Dvd player provided but nothimg to watch and very few games to play. There were books but mainly about horses , nothing for younger people and no variety. My daughter has a horse so it's not lack of interest but no thought given to different ages or tastes. There is no clothing storage in the very small child's room. There really is nothing that resembles a view just a field and overgrown undergrowth. The main thing is thd price we paid. This is not value for money and we do not think this is a 4 star property. The following week we stayed at another property which was less money but the same grade. That property was amazing and deserved a hugher grade. We were thoroughly disappointed and will not recommend nor return to Fferm Y Graig. This property nas so little for children to enjoy on a rainy day we were fortunate that we had the olympics to watch.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We are saddened to hear that you did not enjoy what we strive to accomplish. That is, a secluded, peaceful haven for our guests, from which to explore west Wales. On occasions dogs are left on their own in the property. As discussed, we try to discourage guests from leaving dogs unattended. We hope that this does not cause offence. There is mobile phone reception at the property, however, due to the thick stone walls, for some service providers the signal is weaker in the older part of the house. The bathroom is located at the bottom of the staircase which leads to the upstairs bedrooms. The property is accessed via a private hard-core lane which is maintained regularly and the hedges cut on an annual basis. During August the hedges are in full bloom. Due to the Wildlife and Countryside Act, we are prohibited from cutting the hedges until the end of August. Even when the hedges are in full bloom there is plenty of space for vehicles to pass without any risk of damage. We always meet guests on the day of arrival to check that everything is in order and to answer any queries. We encourage guests to contact us immediately if they have any problems, so that they can be swiftly resolved and do not compromise the enjoyment of their stay. We spoke several times prior to your arrival and were happy to answer all your queries. We met on the day of arrival and again on the Tuesday to sort the rubbish bins and to check all was well. You confirmed you were happy and you did not contact us further with any issues. There are barns located opposite the farmhouse, as detailed in the description, this was a working farm. The barns are currently used for storage, are maintained on a regular basis and are not derelict. From the yard, there is a hard-core lane leading to a private field, which we allow dog walkers to use. In order to keep this field available to dog walkers, it is left as a hayfield and therefore the grass maybe a little longer during the summer months, so you may need your wellies. Some of the land is managed under the Set-Aside Scheme for the conservation of wildlife and wild plants. Dog walkers can also enjoy the private access road and numerous country lanes. Mattresses are a matter of individual preference. Ours are good quality and well within the recommended replacement timescale. We do appreciate constructive criticism and will be installing a washing line. The grading of the property is awarded by Cottages.com who visit on annual basis. The pricing of the property is also set by Cottages.com.
