Property Description

Y Bwthyn (Little Cottage) is one of three Cennen Cottages properties situated in a courtyard setting within one of the most beautiful and secluded areas in the Brecon Beacons National Park. The properties are architect-designed conversions of C19 stone barns and are finished to a very high standard. They form part of historic Blaenllynnant Farm, the home of Sir John Williams who was physician to Queen Victoria and the founder of the National Library of Wales. Each property is well separated from the others and has its own lawned grounds and outstanding views of the Black Mountain. Red kites and buzzards abound.
This is excellent walking country, not only on Blaenllynnant Farm itself, but also to nearby Carreg Cennen Castle (named Wales’ most spectacular castle) and the Black Mountain. Garn Goch, the site of an Iron Age fort with superb views of the upper Towy Valley, is only 3 miles away. There are good restaurants and pubs in Llandeilo (6 miles), Llangadog (8 miles) and the village of Trap (4 miles). Within easy driving distance are the Gower, Pembrokeshire and Cardiganshire coasts. Nearby attractions include the National Botanical Garden of Wales, Aberglasney Garden and, in Llandeilo, Dinefwr Castle and Park. Shops 6 miles.
The properties are easily accessible, being only 12 miles from the end of the M4 and 8 miles from the A40.

Single-storey holiday cottage. Open-plan living/dining room with wood-burning stove, plate glass gable end with door to terrace, ceiling to roof apex, slate floor and fully fitted kitchen. Double bedroom with wooden floor and fully tiled en-suite bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. A lovely cottage in a quiet remote setting. If the weather had been better it would have been nice to sit out in the evening with the only sounds being the birds and the sheep. June 2012.
  2. The building was very clean, comfortable and well presented. The site was very tidy and had some great views. All the accommodation looked very well designed and constructed. I would certainly visit again. June 2012.
  3. The South facing lounge wall is all glass, with a view across the valley and a few sheep. Quiet and secluded although there are two other cottages to let to the rear, all modernised to a very high standard. A particularly good location for walkers and cyclists, it is also convenient for accessing many locations of interest. April 2011.
