Carmarthenshire region

is a semi-detached property set in the heart of the village with the local pub, shop and a restaurant nearby. Llansteffan is allegedly the village which Dylan Thomas based 'Under Milk Wood' upon and it is also famous for its Castle and Estuary beach. There are also many other beaches close by including Scott Bay that seems to be a firm favourite with families. Traditionally the village relied on farming and fishing and it is situated on the estuaries of the famous salmon river The Tywi and The Taf. Within the village a restaurant called 'Ty Bwyta' is worth a visit and The Sticks, and The Castle are 2 great local pubs in which you can enjoy a friendly atmosphere. Fish and chips are also available from 'Florries' down at the beach.

The market town of Carmarthen and the nearest supermarket is only 7 miles away and whilst supermarket deliveries are also available, we would thoroughly recommend you try the local produce available in the local shop and from surrounding farm shops. Some of the attractions in the area include The National Botanic Gardens, Ffos Las Racecourse, Folly Farm, Oakwood and the Blue Lagoon Water Park meaning there is plenty to see and do whatever the weather. Tenby is around 30 mins by car.

If you are following the Dylan Thomas Trail then as well as soaking up the history within the house and around the village, a trip to Laugharne and the Boat House is a must.
