Carmarthen

Carmarthen offers a blend of the old and the new. According to Arthurian legend, the ‘Once and Future King’ was born in a cave just outside of the town, whilst Carmarthen today might not be home to the sword in the stone, it is most definitely provides a suitable base for your cottage holiday in south west Wales.

Widely proclaimed to be the oldest town in Wales and with a Roman fort dated from around AD75, Carmarthen provides a mix of both the old and the new. The Old Town is a place for you to slow down the pace as you wander around the myriad of cobbled streets for a walk through history, the medieval lanes crossing to Norman architecture, Art Deco details contrasted with Roman relics.

The town centre houses small independent shops as well as many high street names for you to browse and explore, but there’s more to shopping here; Carmarthen Castle, built by Henry I in the 12th Century, sits atop the banks of the River Towy. The art deco ‘Moderne’ Lyric Theatre provides a beautiful cultural hotspot. More art and culture is housed in the Oriel Myrddin Gallery.

St. Mary’s Street in Old Carmarthen is not only home to one of the smallest public houses in Britain, ‘The Plume of Feathers’, but is also said to be where Oliver Cromwell stood to watch the castle burn. The historic guildhall sits proudly at the centre of the New Town amidst another busy retail centre.

This luxurious cottage has recently been extensively and meticulously refurbished by its caring owners to provide high quality holiday accommodation with immaculate interiors, generously proportioned soft furnishings and a captivating countryside view. The melody of birdsong and cascading water from the nearby stream, dance through the French doors into the living room and into the master bedroom, creating a wonderful connedtion between these stylish interiors and the surrounding tranquillity of nature. Whether dining alfresco on Ty Bach’s spacious patio, admiring the landscape garden or enjoying the comfort of the recliner leather sofas, the owner’s attention to detail in creating this countryside gem is apparent to all.Blissful, welcoming comfort awaits those returning from days of coastal adventure, exploring Brechfa Forest or just ambling home from the village pub. Set within the 120 acres of Graigwen farm, its caring owners are happy to explain the workings of this extensive sheep and cattle farm, provide kennelling and exercise ground for dogs and lockable storage for mountain bikes, fishing gear etc. While the masses foolishly by pass Carmarthenshire on route to Pembrokeshire, this area remains the unspoilt secret of the discerning traveller and has only recently gained a fraction of the recognition it deserves.

The mountain bike trails offer adventure for all abilities: The Derwen Trail provides a great introduction to the sport for families and novices, while the black graded, Raven Trail will put even the most experienced to the test. Whether horse riding, fishing, cycling or walking you can’t fail to appreciate the incredible natural beauty of the area and the abundance of outdoor adventure to be had.

    Paxton View Barn is an attractive and airy detached barn conversion situated within the grounds of the owner’s smallholding, where they have pygmy goats, a horse and donkey, geese and chickens. The barn has been carefully renovated to provide quality accommodation with contemporary comforts.

    To the front and side of the barn, there is a spacious stone patio leading to a lawned area, the perfect spot for enjoying an al-fresco meal with a drink. The interiors feature exposed stone, brickwork and oak lintels which add much character, and the combination of underfloor heating and a wood burner provide all the warmth and cosiness you will need. The full-length feature window and patio doors allow natural light to flood the rooms, and the open-plan living space boasts comfortable seating and a bespoke kitchen with an induction hob and a built-in oven. Also on the ground floor, there is a twin bedroom and a separate toilet. On the first floor, you will find the family bathroom and two bedrooms, both with kingsize beds, one of which also has an en-suite shower room and a delightful balcony with table and chairs, to take full advantage of the view of Paxton‘s Tower, after which the barn was named.

    The tower is a neo-Gothic folly built by Sir William Paxton in honour of Lord Nelson. Well worth a visit, it is situated on a hilltop near Llanarthney, and its location provides fabulous views over the National Botanic Gardens of Wales and the Towy Valley. These famous botanic gardens, just two miles away, are a fascinating blend of the contemporary with the historic. You will find an inspiring range of themed gardens, the world’s largest single-span domed glasshouse, play areas and a national nature reserve, all set in a Regency landscape, which provides the stage for a packed programme of events and courses throughout the year, whatever the weather.

    Carmarthenshire has some of the most spectacular and diverse landscapes in south-west Wales. You can travel over breathtaking mountains, through lush, green landscapes, discover secluded castles and ancient forests, as well as vast expanses of golden sandy beaches such as the Pembrey (one of the longest in Wales), Laugharne, Pendine and Lansteffan. Also within easy reach are a wealth of attractions found along the Pembrokeshire Coastline and the Gower Peninsula.

    Just a 10-minute drive away is Carmarthen; the oldest town in Wales and the birthplace of Merlin according to Arthurian legends. The town offers an array of shopping, entertainment and dining options, and equally worthy a visit is the old jail house, which dates back to the 1530s. Today, it serves as a museum nestling within the outer walls of the imposing County Hall. Just outside the town, you can take a ride aboard the Gwilil Steam Railway, which puffs its way through the Carmarthenshire countryside, and special adult and family events take place throughout the year.

    Why not come and stay at Paxton View Barn and find out for yourself how much there is to discover in this wonderful region? When you have enjoyed a busy day’s exploring, you will find a “Croesco Cynnes” or a warm Welsh welcome just half a mile away in one of the two traditional pubs, complete with oak beams, roaring log fires and locally sourced produce. One of them, a 14th century thatched pub, has its own brewery crafting real ales and cider. The owners live in the adjacent building, so help is always at hand. Beach 20 miles.
