'Faraway', Carmarthen Bay - Peaceful, Countryside Views, 3 mins from Sea



Updated: 28-Nov-2016
1 Double Bedroom With Ensuite. Lounge/Galley Kitchen Area With Reclining Sofa

Set in the rolling hills of Carmarthenshire and only 5 mins drive from the sea at Ferryside, 'Faraway' is a unique, self catering apartment for 1 or 2 persons with dedicated off road parking for 1 vehicle immediately outside. Faraway has ground floor access.

Kick off your shoes and chill out on the reclining sofa and take in the wonderful surrounding countryside views or relax on your balcony which is ideal for sunbathing or al fresco dining.

The bedroom has a very comfortable 4'6" double bed and all bedding is supplied. Ensuite facilities provide an electric shower, WC & wash hand basin and electric towel radiator - towels are supplied.

The lounge/galley kitchen area is well equipped and comfortable. The lounge area has a reclining 2 seater sofa and additional single sofa-bed chair with bed linen available (should your partner take to snoring!). The dining table and chairs can be moved onto the balcony should you wish. The TV has a separate Blu-ray DVD player and there is a CD/Radio and iPod speaker dock in addition to a selection of DVDs, CDs, books and board games.

The kitchen area includes an under-unit fridge with freezer compartment, microwave, 4 pan hob top and over/grill, 4 slice toaster, Tefal Optigrill and a good range of utensils, pots, crockery etc. Tea towels are supplied.

Pub food is available in Llansaint (15mins walk) and Ferryside and surrounding area. Kidwelly has Indian, Chinese and Kebab take-aways plus Fish & Chips, various cafes, Spar and well stocked Co-operative store.

Shared facilities: washing machine and tumble drier; extra freezer space if required; bike storage area; garden and patio with seating.

We believe that Faraway is an ideal, 'get-away-from-it-all' holiday apartment, and we are on hand to answer any queries you may have. Our minimum stay is 2 nights.

We regret that we are unable to accommodate wheelchair users who are not able to walk approximately 10 paces. Faraway is No Smoking. Sorry, No Dogs and No Pets please.

About the Owner

During your holiday we are on hand to answer any queries you may have. We have wonderful countryside views and receive many comments as to how peaceful it is! For those lovely beach walks you don't have to travel too far either as our closest beach is only 5 minutes away and our favourite, Pembrey and the Milennium Coastal Park, is only 10 minutes drive. We also love to visit WWT Llanelli to feed the ducks. As National Trust members we make full use of our membership to visit Dinefwr and Colby Gardens in particular. The National Botanic Gardens of Wales are also only 20 minutes drive and we often go walking there.

Peaceful with great views

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic little cottage, very thoughtfully and well equipped with everything you need to make a great short break. Loved the panoramic views across the countryside.

Excellent to have somewhere safe to store our bikes.

We felt very welcomed by the owners and would definitely recommend the cottage to others looking to explore this part of Wales.

The property was very clean, modern and immaculately maintained. The location ,surrounded by fields but only 5 minutes drive from the lovely beach at Ferryside, was so quiet peaceful and relaxing. The owners , who live in the adjacent property, were friendly and welcoming and I would recommend to anyone who wants to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We intend to return next year

The owners were lovely, the flat was lovely and so was the cute pub we went for dinner in round the corner.

Faraway, a beautifully presented holiday let

  • 5 of 5

Faraway was a pleasure to walk into, really bright & airy & very well cared for. When not out & about it was comfortable & well equipped for all our needs. We found such a lot to do in the area, including castles, beaches, weland centre at Llanelli & lots of lovely gardens. The appartment is ideal for cyclists with challenging hills, primrose-decked lanes & secure storage for bikes.

From the Owner

'Faraway' is a modern apartment - well insulated and easily heated - with floor to ceiling windows allowing you to sit back and enjoy the view. We love this area which is mid-way between Carmarthen and Llanelli. You can easily reach lots of lovely places for walks and picnics or sample the local pubs and cuisine. Even Tenby is only 35 minutes drive away - or hop on the train from Carmarthen!

Hi!

Peace and quiet and very close to the sea for those lovely shore walks - but you can be in a town in 15 minutes and a city in 35 minutes.
