The river Gwendraeth Fach fronts the property for some 100m, giving private fishing rights - sea trout and trout are being caught during the season. Dippers and Kingfishers are also regular visitors to the river.We have a beautiful, quiet garden with plenty of seating areas, plus a summer house that fronts the river.The grounds are divided into two, with formal gardens on one side and a smallholding on the other. In the smallholding we grow our own fruit and vegetables, have chickens and goats, and keep bees (well away from the formal garden) - we encourage our guests to enjoy the grounds, and to enjoy the peace and quiet. We are in a hamlet of just 4 houses and we are the last one - we get no passing traffic and so enjoy complete privacy. The outlook is deciduous woodland which houses a multitude of wildlife.

Location description from owner

The Wales region

Carmarthenshire is known as "the garden of Wales". It has lush rural landscapes, beautiful coastlines and interesting towns. The area is steeped in history and mythology. It has so many places to visit and things to do you will want to come back for more.

Bird watchers can enjoy seeing a wide variety of unusual birds from the property (including Buzzard, Kingfisher, Dippers and Red Kites), while there are many other bird habits nearby. Fisherman can enjoy fishing rights that comes with the accommodation (subject to individual licence) and sea fishing locally.

Kidwelly

Kidwelly offers many attractions. The medieval castle and old priory church are in the centre of town, whilst the industrial museum is just outside at Mynddygarreg. The yearly carnival is held in July, whilst the castle offers medieval attractions during July and August. For the walkers there is the Millenium coastal path and plenty of footpaths in the area.

Other local attractions include the recently opened Ffos Las Racecourse which is around 8km away; the Royal Botanical Gardens are a 25 minute drive away; Dylan Thomas’ boathouse at Laugharne is around 30 minutes drive; Aberglasney house and gardens is just outside Llandeilo: The National Wetlands Centre is a few miles east of Llanelli; The Millennium Coastal Path can be accessed at Pembrey, providing a traffic free, hard surfaced track for cyclists and walkers; Pembrokeshire lies to the west with its fabulous beaches and beautiful countryside.

“Perfect place for nice break!”

Reviewed 23 Apr 2013

Very beautiful and peaceful place..perfect for couples..cottage is surrounded by lot of scenic beauty with a small waterfall..perfect way to start your day! Away from the city but easily reachable. The owners are very nice and kind..my wife left her watch in the apartment, Cathy (owner) was kind enough to send it back to us. Will definitely want to visit this place again!

“Thoroughly recommend”

Reviewed 5 Oct 2012

This was a 4 day break in an area we did not particularly know. From Kidwelly we had easy access to Pembrokeshire (walked Marloes to Dale), The Gower (scaled Worms Head) and the Millenium Coastal Path (hired bikes at Burry Port). Each were fantastic and memorable. So a great area to locate. With regard the accommodation - everything we hoped for and more. Paul & Cathy are very friendly and put a lot of effort in to make you feel welcomed. The setting is quiet and lovely and the facilities clean and new and comfortable. Without hesitation we would recommend.

Thank you for your lovely review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and had lots of fun exploring this area of Wales. Kind regards Cathy

“Warm and Welcoming”

Reviewed 15 Feb 2012

What a surprise to read the above review. I was at The Old Forge Pump House in December and the owners couldn't have been more friendly and helpful if they had tried. So much so I felt like I was an old friend. This is the reason why I am looking to come to The Old Forge Pump House again in April. They had provided ample provisions in the fridge even though I knew that it wasn't on the facilities list. So very generous. The eggs (dated a couple of days before) were nothing like the supermarket bland eggs one gets and so very fresh. Supermarkets take note?! As for the facilities in general they were fine and I had no problems what so ever with bedding or the bathroom. I would recommend The Old Forge Pump House to anyone wishing to have a quiet peaceful break. The owners are there for you but allow you to do your own thing.

“Snowdrop Heaven”

Reviewed 13 Feb 2012

Not sure if I want to write this review as I'd quite like to keep this gem to myself! We are return guests, visiting a couple of times a year, and always find the let as warm and welcoming as our hosts Cathy and Paul. The setting is wonderful - a small holding nestled in trees with a river meandering through - and at this time of year there are banks of wild snowdrops which are stunning. The let itself is warm, clean and tidy, and well equipped. Cathy provides a super welcome pack which includes freshly laid eggs from her well loved rescue chickens. We'll be back!

“Felt right at home”

Reviewed 14 Aug 2011

We really enjoyed our stay and would love to come back. Friendly owners and great facilities as well as beautiful scenery and easy access to many of Carmarthenshire's attractions. We will be back.
