One of Wales’ best kept secrets; the charming coastal village of Llansteffan is a tranquil oasis on the Carmarthenshire coast. Despite its rural setting, the village is home to a vibrant community that's distinctly Welsh and is a great choice for a relaxing cottage holiday in South Wales.
The village has a picturesque, colourful collection of neat cottages and beachside villas that look out over the Tywi Estuary. It’s interesting to note that in this youth Dylan Thomas used to visit Llansteffan for his holidays; obviously a man with good taste.
Exploring the Welsh countryside is often best done on foot; allowing you the time to take in the stunning surroundings or spot some local wildlife. And watching the sunset over Llansteffan's magnificent ruined castle is the perfect way to inject a little romance into your holiday!
Why not head for the wide and extensive sandy beach, where you can relax and enjoy a beach picnic. If you're still feeling hungry, you'll find plenty of choices when it comes to dining out in the village and surrounding area, from fine dining establishments to family-friendly gastropubs, and seaside tea rooms where you can warm your cockles with a pot of tea or cool down with some delicious ice cream.
