Find cottages in CarmarthenshireVisit Carmarthenshire

Carmarthenshire has natural scenic beauty, glorious long beaches, a fascinating history and is also home to the National Botanic Gardens of Wales, which could state its claim to be the 'Garden of Wales'. In fact this region has a blend of both great coastal and countryside locations that makes it the ideal place for a self-catering cottage holiday in wales.

The National Botanic Gardens of Wales has the largest single-span glasshouse in the world with an unrivalled collection of plants from across the world. If you're into gardening a trip to Aberglasney should also be on your agenda, here you can see perfectly restored 15th century gardens.

History plays a large part in the story of the region, so it almost goes without saying that ancient attractions are some of the biggest draws, for instance Carreg Cennen Castle which can be traced back to the 13th century. This romantic ruin offers a lovely walk up to its hillside location and amazing views. For more historical interest you could get along to the National Trust property at Dinefwr Castle and Park with its beautiful 12th century castle situated amongst a tranquil 800-acre park with wild deer and stunning flora and fauna.

For some gentle exercise visit the Millennium Coast Path, its 12 mile cycle way is perfect for family days out on the bike, with Pembrey Country Park at one end and the National Wetlands Centre at the other. Great views of the Burry estuary!

For more strenuous activity try walking Llyn Y Fan Fac, in the Black Mountains on the western edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park.

A great way to see the region is to hop onto the Heart of Wales Railway, which travels a route between Swansea and Shrewsbury. These steam locomotives travel through some of the most stunning scenery in Britain.

The Dylan Thomas Boathouse in Laugharne; the author's very own holiday cottage in Carmarthenshire offers incredible views over the Tâf Estuary, so it's not hard to see how Thomas could find so much inspiration from the area.

If we've whetted your appetite take a look at our selection of holiday cottages in Carmarthenshire.

Upton Hall Ref: CC632030
Upton Hall is situated in the peaceful Cothi Valley "A Designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty" and as you approach the main gates you will see the Cothi River, in all its splendour, as it flows through the gorge. Built in the 1920s by the retailer synonymous with quality; John Lewis’ Upton Hall offers all you’d expect and far, far more besides. Affectionately known as ‘The Wonderland’ of Upton Hall, the ½ mile of tree-lined driveway leads guests from the ornate, wrought iron gates through some of the 22 acres of grounds, to the impressive 9 bedroomed manor house, complete with indoor heated swimming pool. Whether multi-generational holidaying, enjoying a reunion with friends or simply wishing to luxuriate in these extravagant surroundings, The Wonderland offers so much for everyone: For those in search of relaxation; lounging in the sauna, on the terrace in the sunshine or in front of one of the many open fires or log burners is a must: While honing musical talent on the Baby Grand in the Music room and revelling in a good read in the library could be on the cards for some, the sumptuous bedrooms will make recovery from any such activity, utterly blissful. For the energetic and adventurous the 22 acres of open pasture, woodland and 6 miles of river offer the opportunity to explore: Fill the larder and then wind down with a few lengths of the swimming pool. Those with a discerning eye will revel in the subtle co-existence of original features alongside the mass of 21st century comfort and convenience and undoubtedly appreciate the influence of The Arts and Crafts movement in the design and detail of this architectural gem. For children, Upton Hall provides the potential to make the second floor an ‘adult free zone’, while inside and out, this private estate offers incredible freedom and the best ever game of hide and seek. The lavish formal dining room and the conservatory/terrace area offer superb venues for anyone with something to celebrate, while the large and exceptionally well-equipped kitchen areas provide all that’s required by the passionate cook or plenty of space for catering companies. ......Where else could just staying in ever offer so much?
