Key Info
  • Nearest beach 27 km
  • Great for children of all ages
  • Car advised
  • Pets welcome
  • Private garden

Built in the early 19th Century BaysHill is a large and spacious Georgian house with considerable character throughout.

It is ideal for a family gathering or for friends wishing to share a large and charming property. A beautiful, enclosed garden with a lawn and woodland adjoin the house. You will find snowdrops and bluebells in the spring, rhododendrons later in the year and magnificent trees in the woodland.

The garden is a childrens paradise and has given generations fun and enjoyment. Its unique situation; raised to the first floor and surrounded by a turreted wall, overlooking the Towy valley gives it a magical and secret feel. The garden is an acre in size and is in fact the original site of Talley Abbey which was located in the garden under the Yew tree.

There is nothing more enjoyable on a fine evening than having a BBQ with the family on the lawn. The surrounding woodlands provide hours of fun for children while offering privacy and tranquillity for others to enjoy. There is even a friendly owl that can be heard and often spotted in the evenings!

"A lovely family home with oodles of character and Welsh charm"

What a great house. It's set in the most beautiful location with stunning rural views and yet a minutes walk to shops and cafes. The house itself is full of shabby chic charm with a cosy and welcoming atmosphere. I would really recommend this house and will certainly be returning there myself. The nearest beach is absolutely beautiful with a super pub for lunch set just behind it. The sun was shining when we were there and we truly couldn't have asked for more.

"What a lovely house!"

We had a really great stay at Bayshill House. The children particularly loved the garden and the layout meant we all had our own space but it worked very well. We would definitely like to go back!

"Amazing garden, spacious house, wonderful views and all a short walk from the town."

Another lovely long weekend in the sunshine in Wales with some of our family and close friends. The garden keeps the children amused for hours and some people camped in the garden too! A great day on Oxwich Bay although we didn't get round to doing any of the fantastic local walks this time.

"Great house & fantastic garden."

A superb house and location for friends and family to get together. Great garden and woodland for the kids - we practically didn't see ours for three days! House was very comfortable - we had some good meals around the kitchen table. Town has everything you need. Beautiful walks to nearby castle and county estate. Will be revisiting!

"Very comfortable, character house - ideal Christmas House"

Wonderful place for a family holiday over Christmas with guests ranging from 6 months to mid seventies. Wonderful plasterwork in the drawing room. The rooms are spacious, comfortably furnished and enough of them for several different activities to take place in the evenings - catering for all interests. Weather not good enough to make extensive use of the garden but even so the youngsters in the party were out there every day. Good walking in the area - no need to use the car.
Recommend the Angel and the Cawdor for both food and drink within the town. Y polyn ( restaurant ) a short drive away.

"Interesting house in interesting area"

Bayshill House is interesting in its own right with period features and an unusual layout with a raised garden area. Llandeilo provides plenty of local amenities and the surrounding area provides much to occupy a party spanning three generations. The somewhat heavy handed parking restrictions imposed recently, seemingly over a wide area, would be off-putting if it were not for the existence of a parking permit and the off-road parking facilities in the old stables. Without the later large groups would struggle.
