Please note that the minimum stay for this property is 3 nights
Sitting on the edge of the majestic Cambrian Mountains, with promises of wild romantic walks amongst the flora and fauna, this traditional stone cottage will be an inspiration to anyone looking to enjoy the great outdoors. The cottage promises a warm, cosy and stylish interior that you can return back to at the end of the day.
On arrival, guests will be enchanted by the cottage which sits at the top of stone steps that traverse an ancient stone wall. A raised area offers a bench to rest weary legs and take in the stunning views which have inspired artists and poets for centuries. An outdoor table and chairs suggest late suppers under the stars or morning coffee enjoying the fresh country air.
Once you step over the threshold you will instantly feel the warm, welcoming atmosphere. The decor is clean white walls and ceiling timbers with large traditional slate tiles covering the floor. To the left, as you enter, you're immediately in the cosy living room, where two sofas sit waiting for visitors to sink into with a drink and warm themselves beside the wood burner which is inset into a marvellous stone inglenook fireplace. During the day sun streams through the windows which, in turn, offer views of the lovely surroundings hills and forest.
To the right and guests find a lovely dining area with church pew seating, a marble-topped farmhouse table and a large chest of drawers. The dark wooden antique furniture is shown at its very best against the neutral paintwork. And for preparing meals, the cottage has a lovely kitchen with pretty duck egg blue cupboards. It has everything cooks could need to make memorable meals, it also offers more of the stunning views out over the back of the property.
The area is well-known for its wonderful walks, lakes and castles but when bedtime beckons guests will enjoy a truly restful sleep in total darkness and silence. There are two equally comfortable bedrooms. One has a king sized bed and the other has twin beds. Both rooms are dressed with soft organic fair-trade cottons and of course make the most of those wonderful vistas. A family bathroom boasts a large walk-in shower, pretty floor tiles and fluffy towels.
The area has so much to offer guests, from walking and bird spotting (red kites swirl above the property) to wild swims in lakes and rivers. Carmarthenshire is the cycling hub of Wales and has many quiet country roads, and exciting mountain bike trails perfect for both road and off-road cyclists to explore. History buffs will love exploring the many castles in the area. But, when it's time to quench thirst and satisfy hunger, head to nearby Rhandirmwyn, a small village with two good pubs, The Royal Oak Inn and the Towy Bridge Inn. Best of all, they are walking distance from the cottage.
