THE OLD FORGE PUMPHOUSE ANNEXE

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.

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.,

A dream that lasted a full week

  • 5 of 5
AS we came from a hot country (Israel) to have each morning our breakfast next to a waterfront, soraunded by a natural garden, was outstanding.The Tansley family are wonderfull hosts and looked after us in every aspect. The annex where we stayed was very clean and had all required facilities.
The Old Forge Pumphause is the right place to get lost in the full positive manner
Very much recommended
