House | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Brook House is situated in the picturesque hamlet of Brook, at the head of Cwm Curyll (The Valley of the Hawks), a mile from Laugharne to the east and Pendine to the west. There are 3 holiday lets which were converted from farm buildings and an original forge many years ago, and which have recently undergone complete refurbishment. There is also a small, self-contained campsite on the other side of the property which caters for both touring caravans and tents. The whole complex benefits from a truly rural position with neighbouring dairy farms and fantastic views over the sand dunes to the Gower Peninsular in the distance.
Home Mead is a light and airy cottage; ideal for a family getaway. The cottage is accessed by a number of steps so would not be suitable for those with severe mobility restrictions. Home Mead has a comfortable double bedroom and two twin rooms. It has a spacious sitting/dining room, well-equipped kitchen area as well as a compact but functional bathroom with an "L" shaped shower bath.. The property benefits from gas central heating and instant hot water. There is an electric oven with ceramic hob, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble drier, microwave, freezer and fridge. In the sitting room there is an inglenook fireplace with a multifuel stove, logs and coal are in a store outside. The Freeview flat screen TV also has an integral DVD player and a good selection of DVDs can be borrowed from the main house. There are gardens surrounding the property with plenty of places to sit and enjoy the peaceful location. There is a gas BBQ available for alfresco dining. We do allow up to 2 well-behaved, fully housetrained pets for a small extra charge. Please note pets must be kept off all soft furnishings and may not be left alone in the property at any time. Please ensure that you clear up after pets in the gardens.
There are many places to visit and things to do in this unspoilt part of Wales. The ancient Township of Laugharne is best known as the home of Dylan Thomas and visits to the Boat House where he lived and wrote and Browns Hotel where he drank and mused are not to be missed. The ruined Norman Castle is also well worth a visit with its fantastic views over the Taf Estuary. A mile or so west of Brook is the village of Pendine with its tremendous 7 mile beach famous for numerous land speed records and now home to the Museum of Speed. A little further afield are the seaside resorts of Saundersfoot and Tenby and the attractions at Bluewater, Oakwood and Heatherton. The Millennium Coastpath passes the property, just across the road. For mountain bike enthusiasts the Brechfa Forest is just a car journey away and we have secure storage for bikes.

"A brilliant place to stay"
House is newly refurbished and stocked with everything you could possibly need. It feels spacious and at the same time cosy. It's really comfortable. We loved sitting by the fantastic efficient woodburner in the evenings. The owners live next door and are excellent - friendly and really helpful but not intrusive. They have clearly put a lot of thought and care into this property. Location is great especially as a base for exploring the south coast.

"Idyllic setting, every creature comfort you could possibly wish for"
The new owners Rosie and Justin have just completely refurbished the property and unlike every other cottage we've ever stayed in we didn't need any of the 'extras' we always carry for the kitchen because they had included everything. This is a cottage with many bests, including the best shower, very good temperature control; feels relatively cool on a hot day, but has gas central heating for cooler periods and a huge multi-fuel stove should the weather turn really inclement. Having the owners close at hand was a real boon from our point of view as they were able to give good advice about local amenities, were very friendly without being intrusive and exceedingly tolerant of our young family. There is plenty of off street parking, a small attached garden and extensive grounds which we were able to use, but may be in use at busy periods as they also have a small adjacent camping/ caravan site.
The view from the front bedroom window is glorious, to your left is The Gower and just the other side of the road you can see the cattle from the farm next door and beyond the fields you can see the dunes, with the promise of the sea beyond. Roughly halfway between Laugharne and Pendine this is an ideal location to explore this part of Wales.
Whilst not suitable for anyone in a wheelchair because there are steps which would be difficult to negotiate and the path across the rear of the property to the door is rather narrow, I'd be comfortable taking my parents who are both elderly and infirm.
