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.

Ty Bach Ref: CC632025
Nestled in the beautiful Carmarthenshire countryside; within easy reach of its stunning coastline and just 7 miles from Carmarthen itself, lies Ty Bach a three bedroomed, detached stone built retreat, brimming with comfort, character and style. This luxurious cottage has recently been extensively and meticulously refurbished by its caring owners to provide high quality holiday accommodation with immaculate interiors, generously proportioned soft furnishings and a captivating countryside view. The melody of birdsong and cascading water from the nearby stream, dance through the French doors into the living room and into the master bedroom, creating a wonderful connedtion between these stylish interiors and the surrounding tranquillity of nature. Whether dining alfresco on Ty Bach’s spacious patio, admiring the landscape garden or enjoying the comfort of the recliner leather sofas, the owner’s attention to detail in creating this countryside gem is apparent to all.Blissful, welcoming comfort awaits those returning from days of coastal adventure, exploring Brechfa Forest or just ambling home from the village pub. Set within the 120 acres of Graigwen farm, its caring owners are happy to explain the workings of this extensive sheep and cattle farm, provide kennelling and exercise ground for dogs and lockable storage for mountain bikes, fishing gear etc. While the masses foolishly by pass Carmarthenshire on route to Pembrokeshire, this area remains the unspoilt secret of the discerning traveller and has only recently gained a fraction of the recognition it deserves. Wide open landscapes remain relatively undiscovered and thankfully, totally undeveloped. The 5800 hectares of Brechfa Forest on the doorstep, offer expeditions a plenty: Way marked routes take walkers from thick conifer plantations, over gushing streams to vast open vistas and the residues of ancient woodland. The mountain bike trails offer adventure for all abilities: The Derwen Trail provides a great introduction to the sport for families and novices, while the black graded, Raven Trail will put even the most experienced to the test. Whether horse riding, fishing, cycling or walking you can’t fail to appreciate the incredible natural beauty of the area and the abundance of outdoor adventure to be had. The family, friendly Plough Inn, is renowned locally for its great food and being just 100 yards from Ty Bach, provides the ideal location to reflect on the joys of the day.
