Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Clynnog is a beautiful old farmhouse built in the1900's set on a working farm in peaceful countryside. An ideal family location surrounded by rolling hills and fields. Often described as remote but not too remote.
This traditional, detached, Welsh farmhouse has been sympathetically restored retaining its original features with the added benefit of modern conveniences. It is ideally located for a rural getaway and for touring Carmarthenshire/Pembrokeshire. Only a car ride from the main attractions, Laugharne famous for Dylan Thomas's boathouse and Browns Hotel, also has a Norman castle, whilst at Pendine holidaymakers can visit 'Babs', the famous car that broke the land speed record on the 7 miles of golden sand.
The property is particularly advanced in its green credentials offering natural private water, rainwater harvesting, an organic vegetable garden, wildlife garden and recycling facilities. As much as possible has been done to ensure an environment free from toxins by the use of quality natural paints and materials both inside and outside the property.
The cottage remains snug all year round, courtesy of a Rayburn cooker, which provides central heating and plenty of hot water. There is also a wood burner in the sitting room for extra warmth. The kitchen houses the Rayburn which provides all heating and hot water and is ideal for slow cooking (recipes and instructions provided), additional electric cooker, dishwasher, microwave, fridge/freezer.

Carmarthenshire, is known locally as the Garden of Wales.
With Aberglasney Gardens and the National Botanical Garden of Wales, Carmarthenshire is a horticulturists delight. Both attractions are within a short drive of each other and situated close to the Towy Valley, an outstanding natural feature in itself, has played an important role in the history of Carmarthenshire, with stories of Merlin the Wizard having been a frequent visitor, the Romans and their Gold Mine at Dolaucothi and the still visible grand houses which belonged to the rich merchants of the County. There are also the remains of several ruined castles along the valley floor, built on rocky outcrops that rise suddenly from the ground.
To the north of the Towy Valley you will find Brechfa Mountain and the famous Brechfa Forests. Now a favorite haunt for many mountain bikers - some of the best forest runs in Wales can be found in the woodlands around Brechfa and if biking is not your thing, the scenery is pretty spectacular also.
At Pendine you will find a huge seven miles of flat sand - this is the beach that Malcolm Campbell and J.G. Parry-Thomas broke the world land speed record many times during the 1920's. BBC's Top Gear have also been known to pay Pendine a few visits over the years. You never know, you might just bump in to Jeremy Clarkson whilst buying an ice cream here.
East of Pendine and over the Towy River you will find the Millennium Coastal Park. The Park offers a traffic-free cycling track/footpath, a links golf course, Burry Port and Pembre harbor, the National Wetlands Centre for Wales plus the Millennium Quay and the Discovery Centre.
St Clears (Welsh Sancler) Market town on the river Taf in Carmarthenshire 2001 UK cesus has a population of 2,820 most of whom are Welsh-speaking.
Facilities to include GP, Dentist, Pharmacy,Vet, Post Office, Supermarket, 2 prize winning traditional Butchers, Fish and Chips takeaway, Cantonese takeaway, Bakers. 2 craft centres.
The surrounding countryside is mainly rolling grassland consisting of moderate sized fields with well kept hedges. The main agricultural enterprise is dairying, but sheep and beef are very important as well. The soils are deep and productive and will grow good crops of potatoes and cereals, and the climate allows fruit growing as well. Although most of the land is farmed commercially the area is a haven for wildlife.
The highlight of the farming year is the St Clears YFC annual show which is held in May each year
Local swimming pool and spa
Within an hour's drive are two National Parks (Brecon Beacons and Pembrokeshire Coast), the Gower Peninsula AONB and also the main Irish ferry ports (Fishguard and Pembroke Dock).
Trains travel through St Clears, but have not stopped at the town since the 1960s. A local campaign group is attempting to persuade the Welsh Assembly and Network Rail to reopen the station. Trains do stop a further few miles on at Whitland.
