Special Offers

Set high on the bank of the beautiful River Cothi, The Cottage is a detached former traditional stone cattle byre, sympathetically converted in 2002. The single storey dwelling exudes a wealth of character with its beams, cosy wood burning stove and tiled floors. From the French doors in the living room, you look across the enclosed gravelled garden, over the donkey’s paddock to the river beyond.

Situated on a smallholding with the owner’s farmhouse a short distance down the lane, The Cottage is surrounded by woods and fields. It is a haven for wildlife and an ideal base for bird watching, fishing, walking and mountain biking. There is private fishing on ¼ mile length of the Cothi where salmon, sewin and trout abound. Please see the Additional information for more details on the fishing.

Llandeilo and Carmarthen are just 20 minutes drive away, the latter with its many shops and restaurants. The nearest pubs are 4 miles and shop/garage 6½ miles.

Carmarthenshire is a beautiful county to explore with many castles, the National Botanic Garden at Llanarthne, the stunning gardens of Aberglasney, numerous sandy beaches and mountain biking trails in the Brechfa Forest.
