About Steven

Brynamman is a village which I am proud to call home; now living in the hustle and bustle of Brighton, I love my trips back to my homeland and am always taken aback by how beautiful the backdrop of the Black mountains are over the village. With my family still living there, I enjoy going home to speak my native language Welsh. My work gets me traveling the country and the world regularly and with 14 years of staying in hotels weekly, I have an eye for product, quality, service and comfort. I hope you book with us and enjoy the village, the area, and the cottage as much as I do.

Cozy and blissfully quiet cottage in a beautiful part of Wales. A real treat!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to Steve and Jean for making our stay at Nant Melyn so comfortable. We have rarely come across such a well thought through and comfortable property with little touches to help make our stay successful. A basket of Welsh Cakes and Wine on arrival and excellent aromatherapy sleep spray for your pillow - what more can you ask for!

Comfy beds, a good shower and a well stocked kitchen if you want to eat in, but good home cooking in the many Carmarthenshire pubs if you don't.

All the local people we met were extremely helpful and friendly and went out of their way to ensure we enjoyed our trip to Wales.

We were blessed with a whole week of sunshine, so no need of the wood burner, but we imagined how that would have only added to the snug factor.

Toby our Border Collie loved the terraced garden and the walks up the lane and over the stunning mountains nearby.

Highly recommended - the trip over the mountains via Trapp (beautiful sunsets from the top!), to Llandeilo and Dinefwr Castle. The National Botanical Gardens of Wales ( Note: if you have a dog then Monday is the only day they can join you walking round ).

Would love to return and continue our exploration of such a stunning country with warm and welcoming people.

Avoid Airport Hell - visit Wales for a wonderful holiday instead !

Excellent cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cottage - it was beautifully decorated, well equipped and spotlessly clean. There were lots of great touches such as some complimentary Welsh cakes and even dog biscuits to make us feel really welcome!
