Pen-y-bont description

Nestled in the quaint hamlet of Llanddowror near the historic resort of Laugharne, this beautiful 18th century Welsh farmhouse has been sympathetically restored throughout to provide guests with an unforgettable holiday experience. Carmarthenshire, home to unspoilt rolling countryside, majestic sites and charming market towns provides the perfect destination to unwind and relax or explore until your hearts content. The picturesque Towy Valley countryside provides the perfect playground to discover majestic sites including the 12th century castles of Dinefwr and Carreg Cennen, Aberglasney House and The National Botanic Gardens of Wales. The farmhouse itself is adjacent to the owners’ home, and has been lovingly renovated into a modern conversion with tasteful décor and furnishings throughout. Lying beneath the cosy living room beamed ceiling, the wood-burning stove, thick stone walls and a host of comfortable furnishings provide the perfect ingredients for a cosy evening in after a busy day’s adventure. The quirky master bedroom on the first floor sits below a vaulted beamed ceiling and boasting a super king size bed and a private balcony overlooking its beautiful gardens. Outside, guests are invited to stroll the 1 acre of mature grounds which features a private decking area, perfect for alfresco dining on a sunny day, which sits alongside the glistening River Hydfron. Conveniently located in a fantastic touring spot and close to the Pembrokeshire border, guests can take advantage of exploring the neighbouring Preseli Hills, perfect for rambling and biking, or visit the coast and discover the golden beaches of Amroth, Saundersfoot and Tenby, then head to the award-winning leisure attractions of Oakwood, Folly Farm and Anna’s Welsh Zoo. A visit to west Wales would not be complete without a trip to the historic town of Laugharne, famous as the birthplace of late Welsh poet Dylan Thomas and features his iconic boat house. Also worth a visit, is the 13th century Laugharne Castle. Beach 8 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile. Beamed living room with vaulted ceiling, wood-burning stove and wooden floor.
