Overview

Kidwelly Cottage Rental Photos and Description

A comfortable 1 bed annexe set in a wooded valley next to the Gwendraeth river

The holiday accommodation adjoins the owners property and sits in a 2 acre garden. The surrounding area is wooded with the river Gwendraeth Fach fronting the land. The property was originally a pump house and has been completely renovated in a contemporary modern style. The historic town of Kidwelly is close by and visitors can enjoy exploring the Norman castle and Industrial Museum.

Kidwelly area: The Kidwelly area offers many attractions. Kidwelly itself has a medieval castle and old priory church in the centre of the town, whilst the industrial museum is just outside at Mynddygarreg. The yearly carnival is held in July, whilst the castle offers medieval attractions throughout the summer. For the walkers there are a number of walks around Kidwelly, plus the Millenium coastal path.

Not far from Kidwelly is Pembrey Country Park and Ffos Las Racecourse all offering a variety of activities throughout the year.

The Royal Botanical Gardens and Aberglasney house and gardens are both short drives away.

Other attractions within an hours drive include Dylan Thomas' boathouse at Laugharne; National Wetlands Centre at Llanelli; Narberth and Carmarthen towns are also worth a visit.

Carmarthenshire: Carmarthenshire is known as 'the garden of Wales'. It has lush rural landscapes, beautiful coastlines and interesting towns. The area is steeped in history and mythology. It has so many places to visit and things to do you will want to come back for more.

From the Pumphouse: We have seen Buzzards, Dippers and Kingfishers on a regular basis from the Pumphouse grounds, plus the occasional Red Kite.

We own around 150 yards of river frontage and fishermen can therefore enjoy the fishing rights (subject to individual license) that comes with the property. Sea fishing is also good locally.

Otters have been seen in the river.

Peaceful and Beautiful Setting with Lovely Owners

  • 5 of 5
This review is well overdue, for which I can apologise! My husband and I stayed here last year for our honeymoon. It was perfect for what we wanted - a peaceful, secluded and beautiful getaway with plenty of places to wander. The annexe itself was lovely - very clean and had everything we needed. One thing we both picked up on was how everything we needed was there for when we first arrived and just wanted to chill for a bit - including milk, eggs, tea, coffee.... all the important stuff. And some Welsh cakes!
Both Cathy and Paul were extremely welcoming and very friendly and approachable. At the same time, it also felt like we were completely on our own , which was nice.
The grounds around the house and annexe are beautiful (which Cathy and Paul should be proud of) and full of both 2 and 4 legged friends to visit on a spare afternoon!
The river can be seen from the patio area and is so calming to listen to whilst sat outside with a glass of wine and the fire burning away.
The location is also very good. There are walking routes outside the door and everywhere we wanted to visit was a short drive away.
Overall, we were both extremely pleased with our stay here. We would definitely recommend and definitely revisit.

The best place to rest and relax

  • 5 of 5
We were so greatly welcomed by our 2 hosts Paul and Cathy: that's what remains mostly in my memory. Their place is a relaxing place to rest, away from the rest of the world, definitely for nature lovers like Cathy and Paul. Our stay there was perfect.

Relaxing or what!

  • 5 of 5
Be prepared to chill out so much that you dont know what the time is. Such a wonderful quiet place with only the river to disturb your thoughts. The Annexe was clean and tidy and lots of little touches made it really comfortable. There was a load of things to do very near and if walking is your pastime then beaches and hills close by.

I will be back it is cosy and has a lovely atmosphere which is down to Cathy and Paul. Thanks.,
