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.

Llystyn Barn Ref: CC632002
On an organic farm, with incredible countryside views, this attractive, three bed-roomed, stone built barn conversion provides character packed, yet spacious accommodation. It sits high in the Cothi Valley and commands spectacular views from many of its windows. The beam crossed living-room with its log burner and generously proportioned soft furnishings is the cosiest of places to relax and unwind after the many adventures to be had from the doorstep. Alternatively, barbequing and star gazing from the patio across the front of the property is enjoyed by many. While older children discover the old steps at the side of the barn lead to the perfect den; an airy loft with old sofas, table tennis and snooker.  Peace and tranquillity reign supreme at Llystyn Farm and its caring owners are on hand to meander with guests around the many acres of organic arable and pasture land, the flower rich meadow land and the woodland: A must for anyone with an interest in conservation and the growing of good food.  As you wander past sheep and cattle grazing on organic pasture land, learn of the woodland replanting and hear that water is from its own spring, it’s easy to appreciate why the farm has won a Conservation Award. Naturally, the area teems with wildlife: over 70 different species of birds have been identified on the farm; barn owls frequently punctuate the night time hours while rare red kites swoop majestically through the daytime skies.
