Description

Dating from the 18th century, Bryn Marlais cottage is now a delightful self contained annexe of the owners' home set in 9 acres of grounds, which visitors to the cottage are welcome to use. The secluded garden has a variety of mature shrubs with several seating areas and a bird feeding station which is popular with all the usual garden birds and the rarer woodpecker, nuthatches and goldfinches which delight us with their visits. Buzzards and red kites can be seen soaring high in the valley and around the cottage. You may even catch a glimpse of a goshawk, arch enemy of the local chickens!

The cottage is set on the edge of Brechfa Forest and is perfect for outdoor pursuits including walking, cycling, riding, bird-watching, and fishing. Bryn Marlais provides a peaceful rural retreat for couples and families.

The comfortable accommodation comprises a lounge/diner, kitchen and bathroom on the ground floor and one double bedroom, one twin bedroom and a cloakroom on the first

Location description from owner

Carmarthenshire region

Carmarthenshire is rich in myths and folklore, part of the weft and weave of its spectacular rural landscape. It is one of the oldest counties in Wales and was once the cradle of kings and stronghold of one of the ancient kingdoms, Deheubarth. Carmarthenshire is one of the strongholds of the Welsh language. It resounds with words as soft as the hills, with vowels as broad as our river valleys, with consonants as rugged as our mountains. It's a place where the indigenous culture of Wales is part and parcel of everyday life. Come and explore this wonderful county - we promise you a warm welcome. There is so much to explore and experience: Carmarthenshire is known as the Garden of Wales and is home to the National Botanic Garden of Wales at Llanarthne and also Aberglasney at Llangathen one of the finest gardens in Wales. Both are a short drive from Bryn Marlais Cottage. Apart from the garden heritage, Carmarthenshire also has a wealth of historic attractions including Castles, Country Parks and Stately homes. Some of the most popular castles are Carreg Cennen and Dinefwr both situated in Llandeilo. The historic county town of Carmarthen is a 20 minute drive away and provides a range of interesting and varied attractions. Carmarthen is Wales' oldest town and has a unique history including its development as a major fishing town. The remains of Carmarthen Castle are a feature of the town centre and the Museum at Abergwili has many interesting local artefacts. The Millennium Costal Path runs the whole length of the Welsh coast and is only a short drive from the town.

Brechfa

Our own little corner of Wales is delightful. Set at the southern reaches of the Cambrian Mountains, Brechfa Forest is perfect for outdoor pursuits including walking, cycling, riding, bird-watching, fishing, and sight-seeing. It is one of the largest areas of Forestry Commission land in Wales and includes extensive access tracks for visitors to enjoy on foot or bike, the closest being within half a mile of Bryn Marlais. So, lots to explore and plenty of room - it is a real get-away-from-it-all location.

The Community Stores in Brechfa village is an Aladdin's cave selling a wide range of items of use to the holiday maker. Apart from a good range of groceries they stock batteries, plasters, maps, superglue and even wellingtons! Drop in and have a chat with one of the volunteers serving in the shop. In the heart of the village, Victoria Park is a delightful small, well kept playground with a river walk - very popular with our grandchildren when they come to stay! Local pubs serving food include the Black Lion at Abergorlech and the Plough at Felingwm Uchaf. If you want something a little more special then you could try the award winning restaurant Y Polyn at Capel Dewi. If you are looking for something locally made as a momento of your visit, then the Felingwm Pottery at Felingwm Uchaf is well worth a visit.
