Property

Updated: 30-Nov-2016
Traditional Welsh Cottage Set in a Beautiful Cottage Garden

Parc y Brenin is a charming and romantic traditional welsh stone cottage overlooking a beautiful cottage garden, lying in idyllic unspoilt countryside nestling in the Towy Valley.

The original inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove and exposed beams are just a few of its rich charms. Your first step into this cosy and charming cottage will make this the perfect place to get away from it all.

Parc y Brenin is one of only a few remaining real traditional welsh cottages remaining in Wales. You will be mesmerised by its charm upon entering the cottage. It has been renovated to a very high standard, but has not lost its quaintness.

The accommodation is on two floors. On entering the cottage you have a beamed hall way, with painted wood walls, giving you a sense of warmth, in your fist steps into the cottage. You will find a gallery kitchen and bathroom, stocked with electrical appliances and a fully equipped kitchen for all you culinary needs. This then leads you through to the Bathroom. The Dining room has an oak table and chairs with a bookshelf full of reading material. The lounge is very cosy and comfortably furnished. The main feature being an inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove, which lends itself to romantic evenings in with a chilled glass of wine and looking into a roaring fire. Upstairs you will find 2 A framed beamed bedrooms. One double bed in one room and 2 single beds in the second.

The cottage has its own enclosed beautiful garden full of cottage garden flowers. There is seating at the front of the cottage to enjoy the garden at you leisure.

About the Owner

I grew up in the area, and then moved away, having a full career travelling worldwide. I wanted to come back to the area, and in 2004 I brought Parc y Brenin. I am employed as a Business Manager working from home, which I love. I have 2 horses and 3 small doggies and love gardening.

Location

From the Owner

There are not many cottages that have been converted and kept their character like Parc y Brenin, and fell in love with this cottage on first sight, although had a lot of work clearing the large garden and bringing the cottage up to a high standard. I built a new cottage adjoining the old cottage where I work from, but both cottages are private and have their own gardens, and lends itself as a fantastic holiday cottage.

We are close the Gardens of Aberglasney and The National Botanic Gardens.

There are numerous castles to visit within a short distance including Carreg Cennon, Dryslwyn, Dinefwr Park and castle and Newton House (National Trust), Llanstephan and Talley Abbey.

We are located within easy driving distance of the spectacular heritage coastline and beaches of Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire, which even in summer are little populated.

The mountains can be seen from around the house and offer spectacular walking and scenic drives. About 45 minutes away is the Lynn Brianne Dam, with its pine forests and lakes. The Brecon Beacons are about an hour away where you will also find the magnificent Welsh Show Caves.

There are three award winning caves including the magnificent Cathedral Cave with its lake and two cascading waterfalls. Within the complex you can enjoy one of the world's largest dinosaur parks and an Iron Age Farm, which also houses shire horses among its other animals. There is also a mountain railway, driven by steam locomotives, which weaves its way across the mountains and valleys. Other railway journeys are also on offer and all give the opportunity to enjoy the dramatic scenery.

The Roman Goldmines - These are owned by the National Trust and are well worth a visit. Here you can try your hand at gold panning, enjoy a guided tour of the mines or treat yourself to a piece of beautiful Welsh Gold jewellery. Distance from the house is approximately 15 miles.

Facilities

From the Owner

Feels rural and quiet but only 5 mins from the A40 and 5 miles from the M4 motorway. It is accessible to mountains and castles or beaches and attractions a stone throw away. Set in the heart of an idyllic rural setting of the Towy valley, Parc y Brenin is an ideal place to holiday whatever your interests. The market town of Llandeilo, which is about 4-5 miles away, is the reputed 'slow food' capital of Wales, a traditional pretty market town with narrow streets and historic buildings, a good selection of individually owned boutiques eateries, crafts and antique shops. Carmarthen which is about 6-7 miles away is thought to be the oldest town in Wales and the birthplace of Merlin of Arthurian legend, has a large market specializing in selling fresh local produce and the usual supermarkets. Many of its smaller shops specialize in quality goods. Go to Carmarthen or Llandeilo on market day and hear Welsh spoken in the streets and shops. Visit Aberglasney Gardens (the garden lost in time) and the National Botanic Garden of Wales with its Great Glasshouse or just marvel at the beauty of the scenery. The Towy valley has castles, gardens, wildlife, small towns and beautiful scenery but is also within easy reach of the breath-taking scenery of the Brecon Beacons National Park, the beaches of Pembrokeshire and the Gower Peninsula.
