Perched on the edge of the Gwendraeth Valley, with panoramic picture-postcard views of the valley below and peacefully nestled on the owner’s small holding, this beautiful, single-storey, detached holiday property is the perfect escape for guests looking to escape the stresses of everyday life. This really is the perfect location to unwind and get away from the hustle and bustle, with access to the large meadows and of course the Gwendraeth River, which meanders through the valley below. Bancffosfelen is near to the Pembrokeshire borders, making this an ideal location to explore both counties.
On a morning, you can wake up to the sound of the babbling stream and enjoy breakfast on the spacious covered decked area just off the kitchen. On an evening, you can sit around the fire pit and gaze at the stars above, with nothing but the sounds of rural life and a glass of wine to enjoy. Syddyn Fach, the former milking parlour, has been lovingly restored back to its former glory and offers a spacious open plan living space, with a focal wood burner and original beams.
A trip to Carmarthenshire is not complete without a visit to the Botanical Gardens of Wales, with the world’s largest single span glass house, and it has been voted the number 1 gardens to visit in all of Wales. A 20-minute drive away will take you to Pembrey Country Park, with its many footpaths, 8 miles of golden sandy beach, 550 acres of woodlands, a dri-ski slope and the longest toboggan run in Wales. Whilst travelling along this rugged and picturesque coastline, a visit to Kidwelly Castle is not to be missed and further along lies Laugharne, which was formerly home to the famous Welsh poet Dylan Thomas, where you can visit his writing shed and enjoy the sublime township of Laugharne. Beach 10 miles. Shop and restaurant 2 miles, pub 1½ miles.

    Location is to our likeness is great but some may not quite agree. Local amenities are sparse, but we like that. We would like to go again next year.

    Lovely cottage in a very peaceful and remote location. There are some lovely beaches a 20 minute drive away. Our dogs loved their time spent there.

    We really enjoyed our relaxed, rural, Welsh stay. The cottage was so peaceful and well placed for sightseeing the area of Carmarthenshire and the beautiful coastline. (all by car) A well equipped cosy cottage with two very friendly, happy dogs that welcomed us and our German shepherd :) would recommend it for a very good value, relaxing break.

    If you’re looking for an escape in the middle of nowhere this cottage if perfect, peaceful and comfortable. It’s cozy and has everything you need. Very much a home from home. The scenery is beautiful. I went to get away from the world and found it just what I wanted. The owners dogs are very friendly and the pony’s and horses are lovely. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay.
