Sea and sand: Burry Port is a transformed harbour town within the Millennium Coastal Park - modern marina with landscaped seafront has bought new life to an historic port. Visitors can expect to enjoy the beautiful sands, a relaxing stroll around the harbour and lighthouse or simply sit and watch the magnificent sailing boats go by.
Nearby Pembrey is full of interest - popular, attraction-packed Pembrey Country Park with award winning beach providing the main attraction for visitors but with an added 500 acres of glorious parkland, the park also includes dry ski slope, toboggan run, pitch & putt, adventure playground, crazy golf and visitor centre with cafe, Cefn Sidan sands and motor sports centre.
King of the castles: Carmarthenshire has the cream of the crop of Welsh castles with drama of Carreg Cennen castle or the impressive beauty of Kidwelly castle which is only 5.5 miles away from the cottage with a fascinating Industrial Museum on the outskirts of Kidwelly.
There are many castles to visit including Laugharne made famous by Dylan Thomas, Llandovery Castle ruins with their impressive statue of Llywelyn ap Gruffydd Fychan or Llanstephan Castle in the village of Llansteffan ('the church of Stephen') a small but an ideal spot for a picnic nestled between the sandy shores of the Tywi estuary ideal.
Slice of the action: What shall we do today? whatever the weather? You could try a spot of Kite surfing at the Millennium Coastal Park. Take a nostalgic trip on the Gwili Railway, an enchanting steam-powered line that puffs its way up a wooded valley or go a bit further and follow the River Twyi through the Heart of Wales Line. You could indulge yourselves and delve into the wonderful world of Chocolate at Pemberton's Welsh Chocolate Farm. On a dry or damp day pack a hamper full of goodies then choose one of the three country parks including Pembrey, Gelli Aur or Llyn Llech Owain.
For those on the Town Trails we have the friendly town of Llanelli famous for its Rugby with good shopping facilities including market and out of town development of Parc Trostre and Pemberton.
