Named after nearby Dinefwr castle this stone cottage is one of three cottages converted from former farm buildings. An old stone threshing barn has also been converted into a games room with tabletennis, snooker, book shelves and toys and an old cart house now has washing machines and tumble dryer.
The cottage has its own patio area and also has use of the large lawned garden and guests can wander in the recently replanted orchard which is surrounded by ancient oak trees. It's an exciting place for children to explore. To encourage wild flowers the grass is only mown a few times a year but there are always clear pathways through the orchard. It's a wonderful place to play hide and seek.
Guests can enjoy themselves fishing on the renowned Towy river, bird watching (the red kite can often be seen hovering over Dinefwr Castle) and walking.
