Why The Owner chose Llanfynydd

Woodbine is our family holiday home which we bought many years ago in this quiet village in the hills as it was close to fishing on the River Towy and River Cothi. There is a lovely footpath walk behind the cottage which goes to the top of the hill behind and from the top you get amazing panoramic views over miles and miles of beautiful unspoilt countryside. There is a beautiful village church with regular services, half in Welsh and half in English.And next door is the village pub, Penybont Inn.The cottage is a great escape from the hustle and bustle of city or town life - it is very peaceful, with only the sounds or sheep or cattle the other side of the valley.

What makes this cottage unique

The property has recently been renovated with a new kitchen and bedroom extension. We let it out on an ad hoc basis as friends and family often go there at short notice.

Fantastic home from home!

  • 5 of 5

The property is excellent, everything you need and more. Plenty of room for everybody and particularly enjoyed the large farmhouse style kitchen which was well equipped. I would definitely recommend staying here and would love to come back.

Beautiful cottage in great location

  • 5 of 5

Two families spent new year at this lovely property. The cottage is very well equipped, ensuring a very comfortable stay. The surrounding area has an abundance of things to do, our favourite being Dinefwr Castle. The owners kept us well informed and provided a fantastic welcome/handover to make sure we had everything we needed. Thank you for a wonderful festive break, I cannot recommend this property highly enough.

Owner's Response: Joanna V delayed response to your kind feedback. I am so pleased you had a good time there - i love it at Woodbine and sadly don't get enough free time to visit and enjoy all the activities there despite it being my family holiday home - but it gives me great pleasure hearing that my guests have had a good time. Do come again Giles

Beautiful Clean Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have just arrived back from spending 4 nights at Woodbine, I booked the cottage for my family of 6 for Christmas 2017 having read the good previous review from a family who had spent Christmas 2016 at Woodbine. This was the first time we have gone away from home at Christmas so I was a little anxious I was making the best choice, all of this anxiety was taken away as soon as we arrived on Christmas Eve at the cottage after along drive, we stepped into a really cosy warm and spotlessly clean abode. There was a little bonus too a Christmas tree was awaiting to be lit up in the lounge once we settled in and there was a lovely vase of fresh flowers on the kitchen table, such a nice touch! Everything I needed to make our traditional Christmas meal was available, all the cupboards were stocked with ample pots, pans and crockery. This cottage is really spacious and I loved the communal feel of the kitchen, which we all spent most of our time, the cottage is so peacefully located, just what we wanted. Giles the owner was fantastic at responding to any queries and sent me a very detailed itinerary of all walks, pubs, restaurants and places and castles to visit, we did take up a walk in the snow. We had a fantastic family time away , Thank you Giles for helping towards making this trip a home from home feel.

A very clean and well appointed cottage, in a beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

We chose this cottage because of its location, close to good rail links but also set in great walking country and also close to some beautiful beaches. Giles, the owner was very helpful, contacting us before our stay to check on our needs. He sent us a very well put together info sheet of what to do in the area which we referred to through out our stay. The only thing that was a bit of a let down was that we were under the impression, from the description , that there were 2 double bedrooms? However it turned out to be 2 twin rooms, one single and 1 double. This meant a bit of furniture shuffling to create another double. Apart from this very minor inconvenience I would throughly recommend this very competitively priced property.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your helpful feedback and I will have a look at the room description to clarify any ambiguity going forward but there are definitely 3 twin rooms and one double room (not 2 double rooms as you had understood). I hope you come again. Best wishes.

Charming and practical cottage in great location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage with lots of room and great furnishings and equipment. In a pretty village with a nice church and pub. Very helpful welcome email with excellent guides on places of interest. We had a great week of activities without any pre-planning. Great location close to Pembroke coast, Black mountains, and beaches and castles on the south coast. Looking forward to visiting again.
