Holiday cottages in or near Whitland, Carmarthenshire
Whitland is a small town on the borders of both Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire in south-west Wales.
Lying on the River Tâf, Whitland is close to the Preseli Hills and takes its name from its medieval Cistercian abbey, parts of which can still be seen today. The monastery pre-dates Tintern but now is very much a ruin. The "white land" of the name (Latin: Albalanda) may refer to the famous White House (Welsh: Ty Gwyn) where Hywel's parliament met, to the monks' unstained woolen cloaks, or to the abbey's limestone. Whitland was dissolved during Henry VIII's conversion to a reformed church. Much of its limestone was taken and used for other buildings. The magnificent setting of the ruin and the Abbey's layout can still be viewed.
Home to some of our lovely holiday cottages, Whitland is a great base for a self catering family holiday.
