A cosy stone built country cottage nestling in the peaceful, unspoilt countryside of the Towy Valley and overlooked by the twelfth century Dinefwr Castle. In an idyllic rural setting, two miles from the historic and quirky town of Llandeilo, it is an ideal base for visiting Wales. It is within easy reach of the breath-taking scenery of the Brecon Beacons National Park, the beaches of West Wales and the splendid gardens of the Towy valley.

The National Botanic Gardens of Wales, with its great glasshouse, and Aberglasney Gardens are just minutes away. The bustling town of Carmarthen and the city of Swansea are both easily reached by car. Carreg Cennen cottage is named after the spectacular Carreg Cennen castle in the Brecon Beacons that is only 5 miles away.

The cottage is one of three cottages, that have been converted from the original stone outbuildings of a 19th century farm, and are set around a courtyard next to an orchard where our guests can barbeque in the summer, pick fruit in the autumn or simply watch the deer grazing at dusk. The orchard, which is a haven for wildlife, has apple, pear, plum and cherry trees and is surrounded by ancient oak trees. Guests can enjoy themselves fishing for sewin (sea trout) on the renowned Towy river, bird watching (the red kite can often be seen hovering over Dinefwr Castle) and walking.

There is a games room with table tennis, snooker, books and toys for small children. Behind the games room is an large enclosed lawned area with picnic tables for guests use. It is a wonderful place for bird watchers to sit and watch the many different birds that nest in the orchard.
