After a busy day exploring, head back to the cottage and relax in the cosy lounge/diner, which has a real country feel. Put your feet up in front of the wood burner effect electric fire - the perfect spot to curl up with a book, enjoy a glass of wine, or watch the TV or a DVD. The kitchen is well-equipped, with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher, plus a washer/dryer should you need it during your stay. The wooden staircase opens to the king-size bedroom with its en-suite bathroom which has a shower over the bath, WC and bidet. The bedroom has a TV and enjoys castle top views.

Outside there is a shared enclosed garden which is also used by the holiday cottage attached. Here you’ll find a patio area with garden furniture and a BBQ - great for dining alfresco on a warm summer’s eve. From here you also have direct access to the public footpath. A lockable outdoor storage unit is available for you to store any bikes and/or fishing equipment you bring with you, and the property has ample parking.

A perfect retreat to get away. Cottage was clean and very well equipped. Little extras like milk, tea, coffee and cake made arrival feel special. The dogs were safe and secure outside. Great advice given from owners for local walks, days out, restaurants etc.

A lovely stay in this comfy, well equipped cottage. It had everything we needed. Parking was off the road and there was a table and chairs in the bike store so we could sit outside when the weather allowed. The only down side was the location. Kidwelly isn't the most picturesque of villages, with only the Co-op for shopping. The castle looked lovelRead morey and worth a visit but unfortunately was closed. Pemberey Country Park is a must to visit, the beaches are amazing. Hide

This delightful cottage is a great base for a holiday in this part of Wales. Everything had been thought of, including a 'Welcome Pack' of milk, tea, coffee, cake & own hens eggs. The cleanliness was outstanding, bed comfy and a gate at the bottom of the stairs a bonus to stop my dog coming up to join me, even if it was his holiday!! Kidwelly thougRead moreh is a little quiet.

We really enjoyed staying in Kidwelly Cottage. It was clean, comfortable and well equipped. The location was good as it was not far from the beach or Brecon Beacons. The village itself had nice walks and the bonus of it's own local castle plus shops, pubs and restaurants within walking distance. Very enjoyable holiday.
