This cosy, semi-detached cottage is situated beside a boutique B&B on the owner's smallholding in Llanybri, South Wales, with one double bedroom.

The Den is a wonderful, romantic holiday home in the farming village of Llaynbri, near Carmarthen in South Wales. The cottage is beside a boutique B&B on the owner's smallholding, where you will find cattle, pigs, sheeps, ducks, chicken and geese. You can even look after your own duck or hen during your stay, and collect their eggs. The cottage is set solely on the ground floor, with a king-size double bedroom that can be converted into a twin and an en-suite WC, as well as a shower room. There is an open plan living space with a kitchen, a dining area and a sitting area with woodburner. Outside there is off road parking for one car, an enclosed patio to the front and rear with furniture, and a lawned garden at the back with estuary views. In a great base for exploring South Wales' coastline, The Den is the perfect getaway for friends or couples.


Amazing place!
This place is a little piece of heaven. Out in the sticks but only a few mikes from lovely village with spectacular beaches. The info on the internet is 100% accurate but somehow doesn't do it justice until you're there, so perfect. We have just spent a week there with our two dogs (they didn't want to come home either!) Matt and Sian have truly thought of everything to make sure you feel home from home and it's impossible not to switch off and chill. They are the most genuine hosts who are there if you need them. We loved the views, the huge garden, the fabulous log burner which sadly had to light in August, the ability to walk to top of the drive for fresh eggs every morning but most of all the cosy feel of the Den. Can't wait to return.

Excellent Cottage with Amazing views
This cottage is awesome... amazing hosts, Sian & Matt are so helpful & friendly. Amazing views over the Estuary. Excellent for walking & exploring... Laugharne is a must as well as Pendine Beach - 7 miles of fantastic beach. Absolutely dog friendly. Barry the big pig is great. Very romantic with the log burner. Can't rate this lovely cottage enough.. will defo be back. Sian has thought of everything you could possibly need. Such a high standard of accommodation. I would rate this 10/10 Excellent all round.

The Den is a cosy cottage attached to the owners small holding. We had a most enjoyable peaceful week recharging batteries in this lovely cottages which is excellently appointed a real home from home with everything you need. The dog was in heaven with the spacious grassed garden and the bonus of other dogs to run with. The owners are a lovely and very hospitable couple who make guests most welcome. Beautiful views across to Laugharne and Dylan Thomas' Boathouse. The weather was kind to us which was a bonus. Llanybri is a small village with a good pub,The Farmers Arms, which serves interesting combination of Thai and British food both of which are good. Llansteffan has great beach and Billage Dhop which also serves great breakfast! We will most definitely return. Thank you to owners again hope to see you next year.

Clean, Cosy and Delightful
The perfect cottage for two people and a dog, Secluded garden with views over the estuary, farm animals galore. Our host welcomed us with cake and fresh farm eggs, It was spotlessly clean with very comfy beds. We had one chilly night so lit the cosy wood stove a curled up to watch the telly. Easy access to Lansteffan and Camarthen - lots to see and do in this area, especially castles and beaches !! I cannot recommend this place highly enough and hope one day to return.

The property is modern with quality furnishings and attention to interior design was good. Lots of hot water and a great shower! It was great to be able to park right outside the front door. The entire break was a lovely experience. Words to describe the location, views and the 25 minute wander down the lane to Llansteffan beach - idyllic and tranquil!
