Discover Carmarthen from the vantage point of this charming 19th-century property that sleeps two on the cusp of Kidwelly. Spend your days navigating the surrounding landscape, venturing through ancient woodland, along the coast and follow the winding banks of the River Gwendraeth. The area is popular for walking, cycling and fishing, but you’ll also find plenty to tempt foodies and retail therapy enthusiasts too.
Compact yet cosy, the cottage has been thoughtfully styled with comfort in mind. Rustle up a feast for two in the kitchen and dine together in the lounge/diner, rounding off with a nightcap in front of the wood burner-effect electric fire. Upstairs, the bedroom is a sanctuary with wooden flooring underfoot, a crisply dressed king-size bed and an en-suite bathroom. The shared courtyard garden provides a tranquil place to sip a glass of wine, and there is a BBQ for al fresco suppers.
Kidwelly itself boasts an impressive castle, numerous shops and eateries and the beautiful Glan Yr Afon Nature Reserve that was once used as the quay. You can learn more about this historic destination at the local museum, but the best way to appreciate everything Kidwelly has to offer is to don your walking boots and explore. Follow a scenic trail and trace the former canal that once stretched all the way to Llanelly, spotting wildlife as you go. Pembrey Country Park is 6.5 miles away and has a pleasant beach, but no visit is complete without a trip to Burry Port to marvel at the harbour and lighthouse, also 6.5 miles away.
