Cottage | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
A quality Visit Wales 4* four bedroom self catering holiday cottage, bursting with character, that will comfortably accommodate up to seven people (nine with folding single bed and cot). Dating back to circa 1900, the Farmhouse stands proudly in an elevated position amongst rolling hills with stunning mountain views from all aspects. It is surrounded by gardens with two decking areas and a balcony, from which to take in and enjoy the spectacular countryside, or from which to watch the many and varied birds in the area. It was originally at the centre of a large working farm complex that has been split up over the years. It still retains the original stone barns that sit alongside the house as well as 7 acres of land. Situated on a quiet country lane, the Farmhouse is located on the outskirts of the village of Llannon with easy access to the main road heading west to the historic market town of Carmarthen and the magical county of Pembrokeshire and south east to the Gower peninsular, an area of outstanding natural beauty. Come and enjoy the perfect location for you, your family and friends to explore the Garden of Wales in Carmarthenshire, with so many places of interest to discover and things to do within just a 30 minute drive - or just simply relax and chill out.

The West Wales/Pembrokeshire region
By following the M4 all the way to the end, you will reach Carmarthenshire, the historic county in West Wales, where you will discover medieval ruins, one of Britain's finest botanical gardens, a leading nature reserve, a Roman gold mine and a famous poet's waterside retreat....and much, much more, all within a 30 minute drive of the Farmhouse. Our nearest village of Llannon has deep historical links with the Rebecca Riots and there is even rumoured to be a "secret passage" under the main road running through the village. It is said that the passage was used by Oliver Cromwell and possibly the Rebecca Rioters as an escape route. It runs from the Red Lion public house (which serves meals) to the parish church.
Carmarthenshire is full of history, but it also has a 21st century masterpiece - The National Botanical Gardens of Wales. It's centrepiece is the world's largest single-span glasshouse and inside the spectacular dome is where staff conserve some of the planet's most endangered plants. The area's attractions range from the Roman-era Dolaucothi gold mines in Llanwrda to the Museum of Speed at Pendine Sands where in 1924 Malcolm Campbell set a new world land-speed record. Poet Dylan Thomas's the Boathouse in Laugharne has been restored to look much as it would have during his time and it contains an exhibition of his life and work. Carreg Cennen castle on the western flank of the Brecon Beacons National Park offers breathtaking views, high on a 325ft crag. The Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust reserve in Llanelli is one of the most remarkable reserves that speckle the British coastline with a series of lakes, pools and lagoons at Burry Inlet. Llandeilo is a pretty little town on a steep hill boasting a castle and Dinefwr Park and Castle, a National Trust site. So much to explore and so many things to do within a 30 minute drive.....
