Carmarthenshire is a truly beautiful region of south Wales, which has been kept secret from the tourist crowds until now.

We were there for a 5 day holiday and we had a lovely time. This house is perfectly suitable for a family and I would recommend this house to everyone. The only problem is that the sat nav does not show exactly where the house is so the house is a bit hard to find but other than that this house is very nice.

A warm welcome from the family, who are lovely, meant that we quickly felt at ease. The house is lovely with, upstairs, thick chestnut wooden floors (the wood had come from a chestnut tree that had previously stood in their garden and had to be felled), a modern, attractive bathroom with plenty of hot water, a comfy double bed in our room and a bunk bed in the other bedroom and, downstairs, a shaker style kitchen, leather armchairs and a wood burner (for the Winter). The family has worked hard to complete the renovation of both this cottage and the main cottage and have succeeded to the highest standards and there is also the added advantage of meeting the incredibly friendly goats (so cute!), chickens and pigs! The area is tranquil, especially first thing in the morning. Not having had a holiday in West Wales, I was unsure how much there would be to do but with Tenby, Caldy Island, Cardigan (the hidden pizza marque opposite the restored castle is a must whilst the two lads in SaltRock gave such good service and local advice, plus there is a seal/ dolphin boat trip run by two former Royal Marines), St. David's and Aberstwyth, there was plenty for everyone, of all ages. I'd heartily recommend this area as somewhere to visit and I'd defintely recommend this cottage and family as a place to stay.
