The West Wales/Pembrokeshire region
Carmarthenshire is a county full of plenty to do and see with its beautiful beaches, stunning countryside and history galore. There is something for all the family from theme parks (Oakwood) to zoo parks (eg.Folly Farm) to castles (eg.Kidwelly) to amazing beaches (eg Cefn Sidan) to historical houses (eg. National Trust's Dinefwr) to gardens (eg.National Botanic Gardens of Wales). The nearby Gower penisula has Wales' best collection of unspoilt beaches ideal for walking or surfing and is definitely worth a visit. Swansea is 20 minutes away with all the facilities the city has to offer including the National Maritime Museum, LC2 swimming pool and 8km prom.
Llanelli is a seaside town enjoying regeneration. The creation of the Millenium Coastal Park has given the area a beautiful place to walk, cycle and enjoy the beach. The town itself has a vibrant indoor market, a new cinema complex, an industrial heritage and many good places to eat including the award winning 'Sosban' which is within 5 mins walk of the apartment (voted The Good Food Guide Welsh Restaurant of the Year 2013 + awarded the AA Welsh Restaurant of the Year 2012/13). The Trostre shopping park is 10 minutes drive away housing all the best high street names plus eateries. There are many golf courses nearby including the Jack Nicklaus designed Machynys which is within 2 miles of the apartment. Horse racing is at nearby Ffos Las and rugby at Parc y Scarlets. The Wetlands is fun for all ages and is only 5 minutes drive away. There are lots of birds to see and feed or, for the more serious bird watcher, hides to sit in and view the migratory birds in their natural surroundings. Kite surfing is popular on Llanelli beach with lessons available from the experts. There are many cafes and pubs in the locality including many within walking distance.

"Superb sea/sunset view 5* apartment with all mod cons"
I'm very picky when it comes to vacation rentals, and can happily say Sandbanks is a 5* apartment in every way.
Fully equipped with everything you can think of (unlike the 5* apartment we're currently staying at in Tenby), plus amazing sea/sunset views.
Also great value, probably as a result of Llanelli not being a typical holiday destination.
Having said that, places like Sosbans restaurant, which is a short walk away, made Llanelli an unexpected pleasure too.
Also got a great M&S at nearby Parc Trostre, if you're a supermarket snob like me ;-)

"Fantastic break by the sea"
A beautiful and luxurious apartment, fully equipped with everything that we could possibly need. A trip to Sosban was enjoyable too. The area was a good base from which to travel to other places of interest. We had great communication with Alison throughout and would highly recommend this holiday rental.

We booked this appartment for an extended weekend break with our family. It served the pupose beauitifully, three large double rooms for 6 adults and an upstairs lounge and kitchen area to socialise. You only have to look out at the breathtaking view , or sit on the veranda and you are on holiday! Would definately recommend and we all hope to visit again soon.

"For a truly relaxing holiday you need to book this apartment!"
Amazing apartment overlooking the beach which is perfect if you want a lovely relaxing break. The apartment is so clean and has everything you need. Great for walks along the coastal path/beach. Really peaceful stay. Can't fault anything about this apartment at all. If you're thinking about booking it- do it!

What a beautiful apartment to spend Christmas in!! I stayed here for a few days over Christmas with my family and took everything i thought i would need, however was no need for a lot of this as the apartment is excellently equipped and even had Christmas decorations put up for us! The accomodation was immaculate and everything was beautifully done, it was an absolute pleasure to be there. The views are out of this world and made all the more impressive by the changeable weather we had, watching the hail, rain and glorious sunshine from the living room balcony windows was pretty good. Thank you so much!

"Wish you were here"
You know when you find a place that's special - well this is one of them. We had the best long weekend staying at this beautiful, spacious and very comfortable penthouse apartment where the stunning view out over the estuary constantly changed.......we found we couldn't take our eyes off it. When we ventured out from the warmth of the apartment each morning we got down to some semi serious walking along the millennium path, chatting with the friendly locals along the way. We visited Laugharne (Dylan Thomas country, a 40 minute drive away) for a delicious lunch and another walk, taking in the history of the place. A wonderful few days was had by all, the views from the apartment made it.

"Fabulous views, first class apartment and excellent holiday location."
We spent the first week in June at Sandbanks apartment and it exceeded all of our expectations. The apartment really is first class with all of the key ammenities and is very spacious. The views from the apartment are stunning, looking over the sand flats and watching the tide come in or out from either the master bedroom or the lounge is a real joy. The apartment was also spottlesly clean and the fridge was stocked with a welcoming bottle of wine, welshcakes and milk for teas and coffee. This really was a nice touch!
There was much more to do in the locality than we had first expected. We used the coastal path to walk to burryport, watching a little cricket at the pavillion on the way and then an ice cream in the harbour. There are 2 bikes available to use and in all honesty you could spend alot of time cycling or walking locally but being so close to the gower peninsula we ventured out that direction most days.
The gower peninsula is only 20 minutes away and we spent a lovely day at three cliffs bay. This really is one you must visit as it is a real natural beauty. Another day we ventured further round the gower to llanmadoc to start our walk to see the lighthouse which you can see from the apartment. We timed it just right and managed to walk all the way out to the lighthouse from the deserted white sandy beach. A gloriously sunny day and stunning views.
The train runs from llanelli town all the way down the coast and we had a really nice day trip to Tenby viewing the coast all the way. Highly recommended as a day trip particularly with kids.
Within an hour you can also access the pembrokeshire coastline and we spent a lovely day in the market town of Narbeth with afternoon at slebech park hotel sitting in the sunshine. This was once again a real treat just sitting in the sun with a cold drink, welshcakes and cream scones.
Our last day we went to the local restaurant Sosban. This is within 5 minutes walk of the apartement and offers a very good menu. We went for the lunchtime menu and they offered a 3 course meal for £17. The food was really superb and service and facilities really impressive. We highly recommend going here if you have got time. We finished off the day with a trip to Llansteffan and this is a real hidden treasure with a gorgeous castle on a hill and views all around.
So in summary, a fabulous week, a gorgeous location, stunning apartment and we will definitely be back. We dont have children at the moment but are expecting soon and noticed that the apartment is suitable for a child aswell. There is a high chair, a baby gate that could be fitted, a cot, safe balconies. We cannot wait to come back after the baby is born.
