A pretty period cottage perfectly located for exploring the near by countryside and for trips to the beach.

Located on the edge of Kidwelly, south of Carmarthen, this 19th century property offers the perfect mix of coast and country. It sits on a complex with one other cottage. The town boasts shops, cafes, a museum, the 12th century Kidwelly Castle, and Glan Yr Afon nature reserve . The local area is famed for its beauty,  so you’ll find a delightful mix of countryside, sea shores, estuaries and woodland, as well as fascinating market towns and villages. Visit Burry Port Harbour, Pembrey beach and Country Park, or the National Botanic Garden of Wales. Enjoy river and sea fishing, water sports, or walking the Kidwelly Canal path. (Please check admittance for the various attractions).

Put your feet up in the cottage lounge/diner. Here you can relax in front of the wood burner effect electric fire and watch a TV or DVD. In the kitchen, you’ll find everything you could need: electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer. Upstairs you’ll find the property’s only bedroom - a king-size, which also has a TV - and an en-suite bathroom, with a bath, overhead shower and WC and bidet.

Heading outside into the enclosed garden - which is shared with the holiday cottage next door - you’ll find a patio area with garden furniture and a BBQ, perfect for a post-beach al fresco dinner in the summertime. There’s also a secure, lockable outdoor storage unit for you to store your bikes and/or fishing equipment should you wish. From the garden you have direct access to a public footpath that takes advantage of the wonderful countryside setting - great for walking the dog or simply blowing away the cobwebs.

Within the close proximity (less than 2 miles) of 'Kidwelly Cottage' and 'Kidwelly Hillside Cottage' you will find another cottage belonging to the same owner, which is also available to book – ‘Cockle Shell Cottage’ is located in the heart of the village of Llansaint.
