About Sarah Ganczarski

Hi, I'm Sarah and together with my husband Clive and two teenage sons we bought this dream holiday home in 2017 and have now completely refurbished it. We live in Cheshire, near Manchester, where I grew up. Clive & I both used to live and work in London. I used to be a literary agent, Clive is an engineer turned manager / safety consultant. Our sons are 17 and 14. We love to travel and also own a motorhome. Skiing, cycling, walking are activities we enjoy, as well as music, good movies and sitting on the balcony watching the sun set over the sea in Llansteffan.

Why Sarah Ganczarski chose Llansteffan

We stayed here at Innisfree House for two weeks in 2013 with my parents and had the most wonderful time so when the chance came to buy this property we jumped at it. This place is quiet, quirky and charming. There is always something interesting to watch from the living room as the sea is constantly changing with the tides. We enjoyed visiting the National Botanic Gardens and also Laugharne Castle and Dylan Thomas's boathouse. Everyone here is very friendly and relaxed and welcoming. The pool in summer is great fun for the kids and first thing in the morning when the covers are rolled back is the perfect time for a quiet swim for the grown-ups.

What makes this house unique

At Innisfree House we can relax and unwind and enjoy a slower pace of life. A short walk up to the local shop for essentials; a ramble up the hill to explore the castle; an ice-cream from the tea shop; queuing for the delightful fish and chips when we don't feel like cooking; eating at one of the pubs up in the village, a short stroll up the hill. We also like to walk round the coastal path for the views, maybe watch a heron fishing in the shallows or make some beach art with pebbles and shells.

Excellence redefined

  • 5 of 5

We spent just four days in this property with our son and his young family in mid-June.

The first impression of Innisfree House was "What a stunning property and location!"

The view from the front of the property is of the miles of sand of the Towy estuary, and as the house comprised first and second floors, the views were always unobstructed at any time of the day or night!

The house was superbly appointed throughout - two bathrooms and two additional toilets - and included a study room containing many boxes of children's toys and space in which they could safely play.

The communal swimming pool was a great hit with the Small People,(and their parents) and as the weather was extremely kind to us, much use was made of the facility.

The nice touches included kitchen cuoboards stocked with many staple items left by previous guests, all manner of kitchen equipment in excellent condition,and plenty of toilet paper!

All the things that make a holiday great are there at Llansteffan - shop, tearoom, cafe, restaurant, pubs, beach-side fish & chips (and other snacks) and ice creams. Carmarthen is but a 15 minute drive for a greater choice of amenities.

A wonderful place to holiday and relax in superb surroundings. We would certainly love to return for a longer stay!

There is a very useful village shop / deli / cafe just a few minutes walk up the hill, and on Friday and Saturdays they are open for dinner as a licensed restaurant. Two good pubs: The Inn at the Sticks and The Castle (next door to each other) are even closer. The coastal path can be accessed about 100m away. Carmarthen has a multi-screen cinema and many good shops (Debenhams, M&S, Next) and an indoor swimming pool for wet weather days. The National Botanic Gardens of Wales are stunning and only about 25 minutes drive miles). There are many activities on offer in the area for kids of all ages. The Castle in Llansteffan is free to enter and has stunning views. Dylan Thomas's home of Laugharne is 25 mins drive.
