Cilwen Fach description

Carmarthen is a busy and thriving Norman market town, situated close to the Brecon Beacons National Park. The town is renowned for its busy market where you will find stalls selling produce from Swansea to Cardigan Bay, cheeses from Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire, local organic foods, farmhouse salt-bacon, sausages, delicious cockles from the beaches of South Wales and the renowned laver bread. Carmarthen is Wales' oldest town with a history extending back over 2,000 years. Romans inhabited the area and there is evidence of a Celtic church dedicated to St. Teulyddog. The Roman town's layout is preserved in the modern street pattern to the east of St Peter's Church, whereas the evidence of the Norman occupation, the Castle, is situated on a rocky knoll overlooking the River Tywi. Today, the town has a great selection of pubs, restaurants and shops and there are many attractions in the vicinity, such as Dylan Thomas's Boathouse and the National Botanical gardens of Wales.

Famous for its choirs, stunning mountain ranges and beautiful valleys, this wonderful country has something for everyone. From Snowdonia in North Wales to the Brecon Beacons and the Pembrokeshire Coast in the South.

The place was a converted barn and it was located in a quiet, private part of a large garden so it was a very nice place to relax. The owners were very helpful and friendly.

Cilwen Fach is a lovely cottage in a rural location perfect for exploring this part of Wales. Upon arrival we were greeted by Adrian - the owner and shown to the immaculate cottage where a freshly baked cake and eggs from "the girls" awaited us. Everything we needed was provided and made our stay a comfortable experience. Although separate from the main house, we were made to feel welcome to use the free wifi there and when requested, extra bedding was delivered to our door (in the pouring rain) so we could use the sofa bed. It was lovely to wake up to the cows and sheep grazing in the field and the birds singing their morning chorus, and after breakfast a visit from the girls seeing what scraps we had for them. Thank you Adrian and Jeff for your lovely cottage and for making our stay an enjoyable one. We look forward to returning again in the future.
