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. It is a beautiful looking town, home to the famous Llanelli Scarlets Rugby Union team. 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.

A holiday home in Carmarthenshire lets you enjoy all that is finest about the county, although the weather is not always completely reliable. The summer months are usually blissfully warm, without ever getting too hot, allowing to either relax on the beach or enjoy the enormous wealth of activities available from a holiday house to rent in Carmarthenshire.

On arrival and settling in my wife and I said in unison 'I could live here' We have two Jack Russell's who thought their birthday's and Christmas had all come at once. The cottage has everything you need, and the only sound's you hear are fish jumping in the lake or birds singing. We had King Fishers visiting during the day and at night sitting on the porch with a glass of wine watching the Bats swooping around the lake was amazing. From traveling around the Welsh countryside to visiting local towns and beeches was brilliant. The only issues we had during our stay was that the solar panels decided to give us power outage which had us resorting to candle light, although this was a nuisance it was quite romantic, it was fixed by the use of a generator which got the solar panels back up and running. Although John (the owner was away) Owen, who managed the property, was always on the end of the phone or visiting to make sure all was well. In conclusion:- The cottage is ideal, in an idyllic setting, is a good base for visiting the surrounding Welsh Countryside/Beeches and if your a fisherman, I'm not, you couldn't be in a better place. A great away from it all break.
