These purpose-built holiday cottages (refs 24574, 27255 and 27257) have been constructed or converted from the original farmhouse buildings and an old Welsh longhouse. Welsh craftsmanship at its best - only the finest local tradesmen and materials have been used for the conversion of these buildings. They are situated in an elevated position on the edge of Broadlay near Ferryside on the old pilgrim road to St David’s Cathedral a half mile from the Three Rivers Hotel and Spa. Guests are welcome to use all the facilities at the hotel such as the swimming pool. There is generous amenity space and a country adventure play area for small accompanied children. The complex is on the local bus route which connects to Carmarthen via the hotel and Ferryside railway station. In the opposite direction, Kidwelly and Swansea are en route. Ferryside is uncommercialised, peaceful and quiet; the ideal getaway for a perfect weekend (or longer) break. It is also, due to its proximity to Carmarthen, Llanelli and other centres, an ideal corporate meeting place. Kidwelly, with its Norman castle, industrial heritage museum, Pembrey Country Park and Motorsport Centre, within approximately 10 minutes’ travelling time. The National Botanical Gardens, Laugharne (famous for Dylan Thomas’ Boathouse) and many Pembrokeshire attractions are about half an hour’s drive. There are many places to visit including Dylan Thomas’ cottage, where he spent the last years of his life. The Millennium Coastal Cycle Path, part of the national cycle path network, meanders through approximately 20 miles of local coastline, passing through local areas of interest. Places to visit include Kidwelly Castle, the Penclawydd Wildfowl Centre, and the Loughor Estuary with views of the Mumbles Peninsula south of Swansea. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

    You will not find a better venue for a large gathering or party. The cottage is massive and the kitchen is excellent and very well equipped.

    Ty- Canol is a spacious , well equipped house and very warm. The accommodation was very comfortable, and there was plenty of room for all 14 of us and we appreciated the number of en suite bathrooms, the spacious kitchen and the large dinning room. The children loved the house and there was plenty of room for them to play inside, which was important as the weather was very wet and windy when we were there. This is a very attractive house to stay in for a large party, providing that you do not mind driving a lot when you are there as there is nothing of interest nearby. Some people will really like this sense of isolation and will find Ferryside attractive because of its rather bleak, wilderness feel. Also, some people will like the hotel, despite its 1970s aura and lack of modernisation. It will have a strange charm for some. Despite the weather we drove off to many lovely places and were glad to be able to return to a warm house. However,there were some significant problems for us when we stayed there and these related , mostly, to the service provided when problems were pointed out: We could not get the oven to work on the first night and the response to this issue at first was extra ordinary. The man who came up from the hotel, after repeated phone calls for help, seemed completely disinterested and told us he didn't know how it worked and there was nothing he could do about it. As we had 14 people all needing to be fed, including some very young children, this was incredible. Eventually, another woman came and took our food down to the hotel, at my suggestion, cooked it there and brought it back along with a woman who did know how the oven worked. Eventually everyone was fed by about 10pm. There should be instructions about how to work the oven and a notice saying the fan oven does not work as a means of cooking food. There were a number of things that didn't work such as lights, a hand shower in one of the bathrooms and the kitchen sink became blocked with dirty water. We asked for these things to be sorted but, though a man came to look at them, he went away and didn't return. We mended the sink ourselves because it was a health issue and managed without the lights. There was no wifi but a phone cable stretched from the sitting room widow out to the driveway and across to another cottage that, as a result, did have wifi. This presented a considerable trip hazard and, sure enough, one of the children tripped over it and fell heavily onto her stomach. We unplugged the cable and went out. When we got back it had been plugged in again. Someone had come into the house without our knowledge. My son went to the hotel to say that the cable was a trip hazard and had already caused one of the children to fall heavily. The receptionist said she had nothing to do with the cottage. As he insisted that the owners were informed, the cable was unplugged and the hazard removed. There was no fire blanket in the fire blanket case in the kitchen. We didn't bother to mention this as we knew nothing would be done. The hotel is half a mile away so to go swimming we had to put the kids in cars and drive there. The wording should say that the pool is some distance away. It is a good swimming pool but the shallow end is so deep that I could not stand up in it and I am an average sized woman There was no country adventure play area as referred to in the information. There is a very small, old and tired play area by the hotel - a mile away ! There is a field that the children can run about in but no play equipment for them to play on safely and within sight.

    If you're looking for relaxation with friends and family then this is the place! Not much to do unless you've got a car, but that's exactly what we wanted! The cottage is more of a luxury home than a 'cottage' but it's is beautifully decorated, spacious and comfortable. 6 bedrooms sleep 15 people, but it felt quite empty with the 10 of us occupying it. Plenty of parking and a small field for the kids to play in. Particularly liked the 2 bottles of wine and tray of Welsh Cakes that greeted us upon arrival. The hotel/pub is a 10 minute walk down the hill (and 15 back up it) where the food was delicious. The hotel is dated but full of charm. Service was outstanding. You can also use the pool, jacuzzi and sauna for free! Although the steam room didnt seem to be working, but that was no big deal. All-in-all a lovely break at a lovely location. We're looking to book again soon!

    Could not have asked for more, 15 of us away for New Year and it was perfect, total stay 5 nights. The hotel with pool/gym equipment could do with some updating, however this did not affect us and we made the best that was on offer. Caroline at the hotel is so accommodating and will help you with anything you need to know from the cottage, hotel to surrounding areas and a good takeaway. If you are looking for night life without driving then do not visit here. This was not what we were looking for, we all lead busy lives and just wanted to get away from it all and relax. There was also enough of us to keep each other company, we cooked apart from one night. Facilities in the cottage are great, washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher, 2 double fridge/freezers and 2 microwaves. Wifi and all rooms had their own ensuite so no panic when getting baths/showers. Pets are allowed so the dog came and think he had as much fun as us. If you just want to get away from the hustle and bustle of every day life then this is the place to go. Would without a doubt visit again and highly recommended.

    It was a very relaxing trip and we enjoyed a lot. The cottage was very good and clean. Our kids enjoyed well and I would recommend this cottage to any one who would love to enjoy the scenic beauty of wales to segregate themselves from the busy life
