The Den description

Holiday home
The Den is a wonderful, romantic holiday home in the farming village of Llaynbri, near Carmarthen in South Wales. The cottage is beside a boutique B&B on the owner's smallholding, where you will find cattle, pigs, sheeps, ducks, chicken and geese. You can even look after your own duck or hen during your stay, and collect their eggs. The cottage is set solely on the ground floor, with a king-size double bedroom that can be converted into a twin and an en-suite WC, as well as a shower room. There is an open plan living space with a kitchen, a dining area and a sitting area with woodburner. Outside there is off road parking for one car, an enclosed patio to the front and rear with furniture, and a lawned garden at the back with estuary views. In a great base for exploring South Wales' coastline, The Den is the perfect getaway for friends or couples.

Llansteffan is a lovely seaside village with its own castle ruins, a post office, general store and two pubs specialising in serving local food. This tranquil setting is only a short journey from the county town of Camarthen, which offers visitors a wide range of facilities including numerous shops and boutiques, restaurants, pubs and a thriving daily market. This spectacular part of Wales has always drawn the crowds but there are enough isolated sandy coves and beaches to give everyone the chance to find some peace and quiet. If you're more of an adrenaline junky, the noise and excitement of Pembrey motor racing track is only a short drive away whilst culture-vultures can visit Dylan Thomas' Boat House at Laugharne or the plentiful castles, mills and craft centres in the region. Llansteffan offers a perfect base for a wide range of holidays and is a marvellous introduction to this glorious part 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.

We had a fantastic stay at The Den, the owners were so friendly and welcoming. The cottage was a superb standard and the wood fire was wonderful on the chilly April evenings. The location is beautiful, it is quiet with gorgeous views. We really didn't want to leave and we can't wait to go back!

The Den is finished to a very high standard, it was beautifully decorated and all the fixture and furnishings were of high quality and everything in the cottage worked perfectly. The patio area and the garden were large, clean tidy and were both excellent for our dog Ruby to run around in and play, they were very safe for her as well. The owners, were excellent hosts, they were very friendly and helpful and they were very welcoming to us and Ruby. The cottage was exactly as described and the location was perfect for days out.

The Den is a cosy cottage attached to the owners small holding. We had a most enjoyable peaceful week recharging batteries in this lovely cottages which is excellently appointed a real home from home with everything you need. The dog was in heaven with the spacious grassed garden and the bonus of other dogs to run with. The owners are a lovely and very hospitable couple who make guests most welcome. Beautiful views across to Laugharne and Dylan Thomas' Boathouse. The weather was kind to us which was a bonus. Llanybri is a small village with a good pub,The Farmers Arms, which serves interesting combination of Thai and British food both of which are good. Llansteffan has great beach and Billage Dhop which also serves great breakfast! We will most definitely return. Thank you to owners again hope to see you next year.

The perfect cottage for two people and a dog, Secluded garden with views over the estuary, farm animals galore. Our host welcomed us with cake and fresh farm eggs, It was spotlessly clean with very comfy beds. We had one chilly night so lit the cosy wood stove a curled up to watch the telly. Easy access to Lansteffan and Camarthen - lots to see and do in this area, especially castles and beaches !! I cannot recommend this place highly enough and hope one day to return.

We choose this cottage because we love the area and stopped in a Sykes property at Ferryside last year and were pleased with it. The Den was even better, fantastic views across the estuary to Laugharne, lovely clean cottage, smashing friendly couple who own it and half a secure field for our dog to run round in. Also secure front garden for her while we unloaded the car. The cottage itself is small but ideal for two, fully equipped and a welcoming slice of cake when we got there. An unexpected second toilet and small wash basin in the bedroom, very comfy bed and hidden wardrobe and television complete the bedroom. Kitchen diner, lounge fully equipped, all new equipment. Heating came on when temperature dropped which was welcome at night. Fresh eggs available from the hens and ducks on the small holding. There is also a campsite next door if anyone is interested in that. Owners were lovely and presented us with some eggs when we left.

We had a fantastic stay at this wonderful little cottage in llanybri. The Den is fitted to a superb standard, the wood burner made it wonderfully cosy & the location is beautiful. The owners were so friendly & welcoming and the chickens, ducks, pigs & friendly dogs on the small farm were a delight. The views across the estuary were outstanding and the Farmhouse Arms in the village served gorgeous authentic Thai food! We didn't want to leave & can't wait return there soon! Don't forget to buy some of their eggs before you leave, they are amazing!

Y Den is a fantastic little cottage with all the amenities you need to make your holiday special. Matt & Sian the owners along with their two beautiful dogs were so friendly & welcoming to us and our dog Ruby. The log burner in the cottage was a lovely way to end the day. It was great to walk around their small holding seeing the pigs, chickens, ducks and geese. The Farmers Arms in Llanybri was a great place to eat, the Sunday Carvery is a must and they welcome dogs. I would highly recommend this cottage to stay in and Sian is a very good baker. There is plenty to do in South Wales with all the walks and seaside resorts.

The property is modern with quality furnishings and attention to interior design was good. Lots of hot water and a great shower! It was great to be able to park right outside the front door. The entire break was a lovely experience. Words to describe the location, views and the 25 minute wander down the lane to Llansteffan beach - idyllic and tranquil!
