Lovely escape

  • 5 of 5

Me, my husband and 2 cairn terriers enjoyed a short break here for our anniversary. The location is great- plenty to do for all ages.

The cottage is small so probably not suitable for large dogs. It's very basic but you will be out and about and it suits the job perfectly as a clean comfortable base whilst you enjoy the local attractions.

Although we don't fish, easy to imagine it's a perfect break for keen fishers as the fishery is on the door step.

John is very helpful and thank you to Joe who was there to welcome us.

Beautiful dog-friendly location

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is very quaint and set in dog-friendly grounds which is completely fenced around the lake. It is a beautiful and tranquil location and very relaxing. We were met by John who was very helpful and friendly and explained about the area. There is a walk off to the right of the lake through the woods and up the fields to reach the Carreg Cennen castle which was a lovely scenic route.(there is a charge to access the castle grounds itself) There are two walks around the castle the yellow route is approx 2.5 km and the red route 7.5km both which take you through the stunning woodland.

The cottage is serviced by solar-power which was a little temperamental when we were there. Clean bed linen and clean towels weren't provided (however we had brought 'back up' so it wasn't too much of a problem). Overall a lovely stay and great if you love your countryside walks right from the door.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review and I note the temperamental solar supply and will have it checked by the engineer. I am more than pleased that you found it a great cottage in a fantastic location and dog friendly. However it does clearly state in the booking literature that guests would need to provide their own linen! It is one of the strategies we use to keep the costs down, for our guests. I hope to see you both next year and thank you again.

Peaceful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I chose this for a relaxing time and were not disappointed. It was a cosy cottage. It's a new well presented cottage clean and tidy. The lake has fish, and John and Owen offered fishing rods to us. They were both very helpful. We both thoroughly enjoyed our holiday.

Fisherman's dream coarse fishing wild fishing game fishing sea fishing disabled facilities

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : cardiff at 50 Miles Nearest Barpub : Cennen Arms, Trapp at 0.5 Miles Nearest Ferry : Fishguard at 75 Miles Nearest Golf : Glyn Hir Gold Club at 2 Miles Nearest Train : Llandeilo at 3 Miles Nearest Motorway : M4 at 8 Miles Nearest Restaurant : The Cawdor Arms, llandeilo at 3 Miles Nearest Beach : Mumbles on the Gower Peninsula at 19 Miles Car: necessary

The Cottage is situated on the edge of the coarse fishing lake and backs onto the River Cennen. It is fully equipped and has disabled access, passageways and shower room. It has views towards the 13th Century Carreg Cennen Castle and the Black Mountain. Situated on the outskirts of Trapp, Llandeilo; the location is very favourable for hill walking; bird watching and of archaeological interest. There are numerous ancient ruins; including one of the largest iron age forts in the Country, along with many other castles and abbeys. These are: Carreg Cennen Castle - 5 minutes; Dinefwr Castle- 10 minutes; Dryslwyn Castle - 20 minutes; Kidwelly Castle 40 minutes; Talley Abbey - 25 minutes.

Carreg Cennen Castle was originally considered to be the Royal Seat at Dynevor, near Llandeilo. Probably the Lord Rhys (1197), the last significant prince of Deheubarth had a castle here. In 1340 Edward III granted it to the house of Lancaster and so it became crown property when Henry of Lancaster became king Henry IV. Owain Glyndwr attacked the castle and damaged it badly in 1403, but it was repaired for the Lancastrians at the beginning of the Wars of the Roses, and was for a short period governed by Sir Rhys ap Thomas. Later, Carreg Cennen ws granted to the Vaughan Family if Golden Grove and then to the Earl of Cawdor, who finally placed it into government care.

Llandeilo is the nearest town to the National Botanical Gardens and the world famous, Aberglassney gardens.

Only 25 minutes from the oldest town in Wales, Carmarthen, with it's famous market and beautiful shops. It sits serenely above the River Towy and provides the gateway to Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire.

For fisherman, besides the Coarse fishing lake, there are the rivers Towy and Cothi, famous for their Salmon and Sea Trout.

There are two free permits to fish the lake for residents only but permits can be arranged for any of those rives mentioned; provided at least a weeks notice is given to the owner.
