Upstairs, this property boasts 4 beautifully laid-out bedrooms, including a master double with en-suite bathroom and walk-through wardrobe, a spacious double bedroom, a twin room with woodland views, and a small bedroom with crib and blackout blinds for the baby or toddler in your group. The guests enjoying the master double have their own en-suite shower room with WC, wash hand basin and heated towel rail. The family bathroom also has a large bath with central mixer taps, ready for your bubble bath with a glass of bubbles. Downstairs, the two relaxing spaces could not be more different; the main lounge area is spacious and airy, with sunlight entering from windows on opposite sides of the property. The seats and sofa are bold in colour as well as being super comfortable, and the room feels like a vibrant space to plan adventures as well as a cosy space in the evening to wind down in front of the TV. The snug area to the left of the large downstairs hallway, however, is a cosy, light-filled space with a front-facing window, perfect for peace to read a book, meditate on the large floor cushion, or just hide from the kids! The sleek kitchen and dining space has cool tones of grey and turquoise throughout and is a calm, clean, communal space in which to cook on the large hob area or double wall oven and eat together on the sturdy oak dining table with seats and bench. A small utility space to the side of the property comes in handy. This property has delightful outside spaces; at the rear of the property, a long lawned area sits neatly behind the patio, with a patio set table and six chairs nestled beneath the large navy blue parasol. There’s a standalone brazier for cool evenings, and space runs around to the front of the property with a front lawn and seating area. There’s parking alongside the property for up to three vehicles.
A five-minute walk from Cockleshell and you arrive at Llansteffan beach. This is a wonderful, unspoiled sandy shore on the Tywi estuary, ideal for sandcastles and birdwatching. Llansteffan is a quiet village located on a wide estuary, ideal for a relaxing waterside break. The local gastro-pub is a 5-minute walk away, serving great food, it has a beer garden to enjoy too! Check to see if there’s live music - perfect for a pint and a singalong!The Old Post Office Village Store and Deli in the village is for great coffee and homemade ready meals for you to enjoy. You can order the ingredients for a full Welsh Sunday lunch to cook at your home from home in that gorgeous kitchen.
