This holiday property, named after the majestic birds that can often be seen in the skies in this area, is a detached barn conversion located on a smallholding in beautiful rural Carmarthenshire, yet only a few minutes drive from Wales’ oldest town, Carmarthen, where the legendary wizard Merlin is believed to have originated from. Carmarthen, sitting on the River Towy, boasts a castle and museums as well as a wonderful array of shops, cafés, restaurants, cinemas and theatre. With wide open spaces, gardens, ancient castles, wildlife and lots of sand, Carmarthenshire is the largest county in South Wales, stretching from Carmarthen Bay in the south to the mountainous landscapes of the Western Brecon Beacons and Cambrian Mountains in the north. It also has 80 miles of long sandy beaches, wondrous gardens, awe-inspiring castles and market towns brimming with local produce and chic shopping - all this just 70 minutes from the Severn Bridge along the M4 motorway. Day trips include going to the National Botanical Garden of Wales with the world’s largest single span glasshouse; Pembrey Country Park and its 8-mile award-winning beach; Laugharne and the boat house where Dylan Thomas wrote; Dinefwr Park and Castle with a 1,000-year-old breed of white park cattle; the National Wetland Centre where you can feed flamingos; and Pendine, a remarkable straight, flat and hard beach where you can find a museum overlooking the beach which records the days when it was famous for attracting world land speed record-breaking drivers. It is still possible to drive and park on the beach today. After glorious days out exploring everything that Carmarthenshire has to offer, Red Kite Holiday Barn will offer all the space and comfort you need and families can enjoy the opportunity to relax here and visit the owners’ shetland ponies, goats, miniature pigs, ducks and hens that live on this smallholding.
