Make holiday rental home or property to rent in Carmarthenshire your home away from home

Carmarthenshire is a truly beautiful region of south Wales, which has been kept secret from the tourist crowds until now. The sharp hills and undulating plains of Carmarthenshire are wonderfully scenic, but it is the wild mountains, glorious beaches and timeless lifestyles that really endear visitors to the countryside, people and rental homes in Carmarthenshire. Known as the ‘Garden of Wales’, Carmarthenshire’s many miles of countryside encompass many terrains, including Wales’ longest beach, Cefn Sidan Sands.

Things to do in Carmarthenshire

Properties to rent in Carmarthenshire are an adventure activity base of the highest quality. There are far to many footpaths, cycle ways and bridle paths than you could possibly explore from a single trip to a Carmarthenshire rental car. If you are looking to rent Carmarthenshire accommodation for a walking, mountain biking or horse riding holiday a Carmarthenshire holiday rental anywhere along the coastline or in the Brecon Beacons will be ideal. There are riding stables and mountain biking centres throughout the county, as well as activity centres offering everything from quad biking to paint balling, land yachting to caving, so if you are looking for any form of adventure activity, you cannot go far wrong with a Carmarthenshire holiday home. Carmarthenshire is also known for its fantastic golf courses and fishing rivers. The Towy, Taf and Teifi are considered to be some of the finest sea trout fishing rivers in the whole of Europe.

Carmarthenshire, the ‘garden of Wales’, is home to the National Botanic Gardens of Wales, created in 2001. The gardens are absolutely beautiful, protecting local species and rare species from regions reaching all the way down to the Mediterranean. The Aberglasney National Botanic Garden is also well worth visiting from any rental home in Carmarthenshire, designed in the 16th century and stunningly beautiful, the gardens have been marked as the UK’s most exciting restoration project.

Places to visit on holiday to Carmarthenshire

There are simply too many charming villages and town in which to rent Carmarthenshire accommodation to mention in an entire holiday guide to Carmarthenshire, but the town of Llanelli stands out as among the most interesting places to visit.

There is a huge shopping centre in Llanelli, as well as a couple of excellent stretches of the Carmarthenshire Coastal Path.

Just a few kilometres along the coast is Carmarthen, the administrative town of Carmarthenshire. There is a huge wealth of history, culture and art to be discovered in Carmarthen, from the famous castle to the Bishop’s Palace, Felingwm Potters to Greyfriars Mall.

On first entering Nant Melyn to our departure the following week we enjoyed everything about this lovely cottage. The vase of flowers, bottle of wine, welsh cakes, bottles of water and treats for the dog was a lovely touch. We visited The Black Mountain Centre which is a five minute walk from the cottage and was greeted by two very pleasant members of staff who were very helpful with suggestions of where we should walk. Llanelli Discovery walk, Rhossili beach, Craig y nos country park, Water falls at Coelbren and The black mountains plus a couple of walks from the cottage were all enjoyable and dog friendly. One of our nights we paid a visit to Brynamman cinema, definitely worth a visit. We also had a meal at Tregib arms. Every other evening we were very happy to stay in enjoying a glass of wine next to the log fire. The bathroom was lovely, it has a bath with a separate shower cubicle. After a day out walking a bath was very welcome. Also another lovely touch was the toiletries that was there if needed. We also booked Michelle for a massage each, which was a great way to relax and de 'stress. Nant Melyn is very clean and equipped with all that you need. Can not find any faults.. Just perfect. Luxurious even.
