About the property

Set In A Small Quiet Village Near Our Cosy Pub with Woodland walks

A detached, restored cottage. Set in a village of about 30 houses. You can hear the river from the front door. Great outside space to the back, overlooking the hills behind, where the Hot Tub and Changing Shed are located. You can sit in the Tub and enjoy the open countryside around you.

From the front door you can walk to the signposted forest trails, mountain bike routes in the Brechfa Forest, go fishing ( I can sort out local permits), or just enjoy the peace in the garden.

We own the Pub in the village, which is a friendly place to meet the locals.

Home made food, cooked by my wife, and a riverside Beer Garden which is an idyllic place to relax in the Summer.

Within 40 minutes you can get to some superb beaches, or go inland and walk up some fabulous mountains. There are plenty of activities for the kids to do as well. Carmarthen and Llandeilo are only 25 minutes away with shopping, cinema and eateries.

If you want to get away from it all, this is complete peace and tranquility. Great walks in the Brecha Forest from your door step. The convenience of a small friendly village and our Pub. Even though its remote, it doesnt take long to get to local attractions and the bigger Towns for Shopping, Cinema, Bowling and Restaurants.

Cosy Cottage 50 Paces From Our Pub Set In The Brechfa Forest With Hot Tub
average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews

fantastic trip.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful cottage set in a lovely village. Very easy to book (even for me, that struggles to navigate my way around on the computer) George the owner answered my queries and told me my prefered date was available and gave me a price which I thought was very reasonable, especially as it was during the Easter break. Hot tub in the garden as well. 3 bedrooms and two reception rooms and a fully fitted kitchen plus bathroom and a downstairs toilet. 3 minutes walk from the Black Lion which is fantastic for food. Lovely walking area and a lovely time had by all. Thanks to George for a fantastic break.
