A home from home in a delightful area

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was warm and cosy and was a great base for the local area. It had everything that you are likely to need including sharp knives!

We went walking at Carreg Cennen castle which is great if you fancy a more open walk, all in all - a great place to stay.

Escape from it all location by Brechfa Forest

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyable few days spent at the cottage which was dog friendly, very clean, well furnished and fully kitted out with all the home from home utensils etc. Good views of the forest and valley areas from the patio area waking up to 2 friendly horses in the field adjacent to the cottage!

Excellent walking & mountain bike treks within easy reach via car and a mile to the local village pub.

I would have rated 5 stars however on our last day (Sunday) we were woken up to workmen and tree cutting machinery outside our dining/bedroom windows who were early as they wanted to beat the rain!

Steve apologised but we felt pressured to leave early so a disappointing end to our stay.

would still recommend though.

Stunning cottage amongst a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

Me and my wife recently booked Gorlech cottage for a few nights over new year. Upon arrival we were greeted by Steve who was incredibly helpful showing us around the place. The cottage has been recently renovated and we were really taken back how lovely it all looked. There is plenty of space, while still keeping a cosy feel. There is a nice pub that is a pleasant 20 minute walk away, and another pub just 5 miles in the other direction (which serves particularly good food!)

The local area offers some amazing long walks and bike rides if you are feeling adventurous, but if you are also just looking for a relaxing getaway this place is ideal. Llandeilo is a short drive away and has some amazing little bespoke places to eat and drink.

Steve and Cara were really welcoming and also came to our rescue when we accidentally locked ourselves out one evening! Couldn't recommend this place enough.

Lovely property with great attention to detail

  • 5 of 5

Steve was really helpful and supplied good directions. The property was spotless and exactly as described. The touches of milk in the fridge, tea and coffee, welsh cakes etc being there was much appreciated as we arrived very late after a long journey. The house was warm, the beds and bedding were quality and comfortable and the towels fluffy.

It has everything you need and great little extras like an iPod, wellies, fully kitted out kitchen, dog towel and couldn't be better placed for Brechfa Forest for the bikers and walkers amongst us. Would highly recommend it and will certainly be visiting again. Thank you Steve for your hospitality.
