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.

What a beautiful apartment. This really is a luxury apartment; they have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable and the fixtures and fittings are all high spec. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare a meal, and there are plenty of dvds, games and toys provided to entertain everyone. We loved waking up to the sight of the sea, and the children could go down to the beach as we prepared breakfast, and we could still see them from the apartment.
We loved walking along the coastal path and the children enjoyed using the scooters provided.
I would definitely recommend this apartment for a family holiday.

"Amazing views from comfortable apartment"
This is the best apartment we have stayed in! The views are absolutely amazing - even the pictures don't prepare you for how stunning they are. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Alison re… More

We just loved the apartment! The views were excellent, and the apartment had everything that we could possibly want for a self-catering holiday. All appliances were full sized, and the kitchen was stocked with everything that one needed in order to rustle up decent meals, including a handy starter pack of food and staples. I would also like to add as someone who has herniated disks and often struggles with beds away from home, the bed that we slept on was extremely comfortable, no back issues at all! It was also super-clean and modern, another bonus! Access to the key for the apartment upon arrival was easy, parking was convenient, and even though it was a 2-storey apartment, we didn't once hear any noise from any neighbours. We got lucky and had a warm, sunny week, so spent many relaxed hours on the balcony gazing at the ever-changing sea or strolling along the beach. Definitely 5 stars and well worth a visit!

"Didn't want to leave"
On our last morning we didn't want to leave. We thoroughly enjoyed relaxing for a week watching the ebb and flow of the tide and the birds from the balcony. We were very lucky with the weather … More

"Perfect views with all the comforts of home and more!"
This penthouse apartment was perfect for my family including my one year old grandson. Alison and Paul made sure we had a cot , high chair, stair gates, plug covers and little cups, bowls and baby spoons.
We just walked a few meters outdoors in order to enjoy the ( almost deserted ) sandy, safe beach. No cars to contend with. The air quality is superb and the coastal path beautiful and gently undulating. We had use of the bikes too.
The best day was spent on a deserted beach just over three miles along the path.
Everything at Sandbanks was very comfortable and clean. We had a wonderful time and will return one day!!

"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.
