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 and cycling 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. Shop 4 miles, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

    A well situated property taking advantage of the local countryside, located in a tranquil setting. The owners of the accommodation are to be commended for creating such a homely environment. The property is well equipped and maintained to a high standard and is spotlessly clean. Close to nearby places of interest, stunning scenery and tourist attractions.

    Lovely farmhouse, very clean and well equipped, the reason I only gave an 8 for comfort was the 3 piece suite was not terribly comfortable, it is only personal preference, as I like to sink into a sofa but this was just did not allow this as it was quite upright and the seating very firm. The garden was very large and although it was windy we were able to sit out near the hedging which was an excellent windbreak (could have done with a few cushions for the garden chairs). Would suggest maybe the addition of a BBQ. I would like to say a big thank you to Caroline and Clive for the visitors book with all the details therein, as this was needed when our poor little Chihuahua came in contact with jelly fish on the beach, she collapsed and had a seizure very early on Monday morning but as the information re the vet was quickly found we were able to contact them immediately. She made a good recovery. I would love to return but the rules regarding pets is not for us. I agree that pets should not be allowed on furniture but I did not like the rule about pets not being allowed upstairs. Our dog has always slept in her own bed in our bedroom and going to a strange place and leaving her downstairs is not an option. I would like to see this rule mentioned in the "Additional Information" . I did break this rule and I apologise to Caroline and Clive for this, however, Poppy never came into contact with any furniture or the carpet in the bedroom, as we always take her "Holiday Crate" with us when we go on holiday and this is where she sleeps in her little bed with the crate door closed.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We are so glad that Poppy made a full recovery, thank you for you comments. The house rules regarding pets, are set by cottages.com and are part of the original online terms and conditions when booking pet friendly accommodation. Thank you for your honesty, we would be more than happy to see you again.

    A great place to get away from it all. Quiet location, but easy access to coast and countryside.

    Lovely characterful cottage in very peaceful surroundings. Fantastic views over farmland. Well equipped kitchen/diner leading to cosy living room. Very useful boot room. The owners were welcoming and friendly. Great location, only 15 minutes from Llansteffan beach, 1/2 hour from Pembrey Country Park and Cefn Sidan beach (well worth a visit). Perfect cottage for families with dogs.

    Nice and quiet and secluded, only problem was getting ourselves orientated when returning from a day out which we eventually got the hang of. Very well equipped, would have liked some cereal bowls rather than large soup bowls for breakfast.

    Great cottage and location, however the beds were really uncomfortable, if everything wasn't so good, we would probably have left early.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments, we welcome feedback, please note that the beds are now fitted with mattress toppers, to increase comfort.

    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.
