This property is part of our Welsh Country Cottages collection

An inspiring collection of properties chosen for their character, luxury and heritage, all graded 4 star and above..


Ideal for groups, this holiday property is equipped with a games room, which has a football table and pool table.

Situated in a picturesque, coastal position with spectacular views over Carmarthen Bay, this large, detached barn has been sympathetically converted to retain its original charm and character, making it an unforgettable experience for a family or groups looking to explore West Wales. This holiday property, adjacent to the owner’s home, is bursting with original character including original stone walls and beams, whilst lots of welcoming touches have been added for that homely feel throughout. For children and family entertainment, the barn boasts a spacious games room equipped with a pool and football table, a great distraction during inclement weather. Outside, guests can enjoy their large, lawned garden with a patio area, where they can sit, relax and unwind whilst watching the sun set over the idyllic bay. Carmarthenshire itself has lots on offer, including fantastic walks along the Millennium Coastal Path, which leads through scenic Pembrey Country Park, which is renowned for its dry ski slope, horse riding trails and 7 miles of beaches. For sports enthusiasts, visitors can enjoy a round of golf at the Jack Nicklaus course or watch live sport at the Llanelli Scartlets Rugby stadium and nearby Ffos Las racecourse. Away from the coast, the Carmarthenshire countryside is just as promising with its array of charming market towns and medieval castles including Kidwelly and Laugharne, or guests can visit the National Botanical Garden of Wales. Just a 60-minute drive away is the popular tourist resort of Tenby, with its cobbled streets, traditional Welsh pubs and thrilling leisure parks which are waiting to be explored. Beach ½ mile. Shop and pub 1 mile.

    We were a group of 12 work colleagues and friends celebrating a 50th birthday. The cottage was the perfect space, beautiful, clean and had all the utensils we needed, including a games area. Highly recommend the Kings Arms who were so welcoming, excellent food and even put up some birthday banners to make it extra special. Fantastic experience and happy memories were made here. Thank you, diolch yn fawr.

    Excellent large cottage for big groups. Well equipped and very clean. We were a group of 11 women (book club] and had a lovely long weekend. Everyone agreed that the rooms were lovely and the hot tub fantastic. My only suggestion would be to have rugs in the sitting areas to reduce the noise off all the hard surfaces.

    My friend and I chose the Cowshed to celebrate our birthdays with a group of friends. It was perfect for our needs but would also be great for large families too. It was well equipped and had everything that we needed to celebrate.There was plenty of space for everybody to not feel like you were on top of each other for relaxing whether it was in the lounge area catching up with friends, sitting around the impressive dining table with a glass of wine, playing pool upstairs or chilling out in the hot tub! It was a shame that we all had to leave, it was such a relaxing and beautiful house to stay in. If the opportunity came up we would love to return again.

    Very nice welcome from start to finish of the holiday - loads to do just in and around the accommodation alone - the grandchildren didn't want to go out the first few days they were just enjoying what was on hand indoors. Everything is provided for, from the welcome pack of the Welsh Cakes, tea, coffee milk, etc. to the cleaning products/tea-towels etc. Hot tub was in use every day. Would highly recommend.

    Absolutely amazing place to spend some family time together. I just hope they just make a swimming pool at the back of the shed , as that is the only thing missing. Great place to stay and enjoy the nature away from all the busy lifestyle. Highly recommended!

    Generally good but bed in upstairs room was very noisy. All knives need sharpening and large table sticky. A few cobwebs.
