Carmarthenshire

Carmarthenshire has natural scenic beauty, glorious long beaches, a fascinating history and is also home to the National Botanic Gardens of Wales, which could state its claim to be the ‘Garden of Wales’. In fact this region has a blend of both great coastal and countryside locations that makes it the ideal place for a self-catering cottage holiday in wales.

The National Botanic Gardens of Wales has the largest single-span glasshouse in the world with an unrivalled collection of plants from across the world. If you’re into gardening a trip to Aberglasney should also be on your agenda, here you can see perfectly restored 15th century gardens.

History plays a large part in the story of the region, so it almost goes without saying that ancient attractions are some of the biggest draws, for instance Carreg Cennen Castle which can be traced back to the 13th century. This romantic ruin offers a lovely walk up to its hillside location and amazing views. For more historical interest you could get along to the National Trust property at Dinefwr Castle and Park with its beautiful 12th century castle situated amongst a tranquil 800-acre park with wild deer and stunning flora and fauna.

For some gentle exercise visit the Millennium Coast Path, its 12 mile cycle way is perfect for family days out on the bike, with Pembrey Country Park at one end and the National Wetlands Centre at the other. Great views of the Burry estuary!

For more strenuous activity try walking Llyn Y Fan Fac, in the Black Mountains on the western edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park.

A great way to see the region is to hop onto the Heart of Wales Railway, which travels a route between Swansea and Shrewsbury. These steam locomotives travel through some of the most stunning scenery in Britain.

The Dylan Thomas Boathouse in Laugharne; the author’s very own holiday cottage in Carmarthenshire offers incredible views over the Tâf Estuary, so it’s not hard to see how Thomas could find so much inspiration from the area.

    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. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.
