Gorgeous and peaceful

Loved it here, great place to get away and appreciate the beauty of Wales.

My dog loved it and I will be back again with my son next time to explore the castles.

Well worth it and good value for a lovely break.

Totally brilliant place.

A little bit of heaven in wales

  • 5 of 5

A lovely little cottage in a wonderful location , ideal for sight seeing or walking holiday , but also for relaxing at the cottage watching the birds kingfishers etc or even the fish jumping in the lake. If you like fishing you will not be disappointed my husband was out there every day and caught many net busting carp etc . John the owner was there to greet us at the start of our holiday and was very helpful .we would recommend the property to anyone and we will definitely go back

Idyllic Setting.

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was 28th June - 5th July 2017.

On arrival and settling in my wife and I said in unison 'I could live here' We have two Jack Russell's who thought their birthday's and Christmas had all come at once. The cottage has everything you need, and the only sound's you hear are fish jumping in the lake or birds singing. We had King Fishers visiting during the day and at night sitting on the porch with a glass of wine watching the Bats swooping around the lake was amazing. From traveling around the Welsh countryside to visiting local towns and beeches was brilliant. The only issues we had during our stay was that the solar panels decided to give us power outage which had us resorting to candle light, although this was a nuisance it was quite romantic, it was fixed by the use of a generator which got the solar panels back up and running. Although John (the owner was away) Owen, who managed the property, was always on the end of the phone or visiting to make sure all was well.

In conclusion:- The cottage is ideal, in an idyllic setting, is a good base for visiting the surrounding Welsh Countryside/Beeches and if your a fisherman, I'm not, you couldn't be in a better place. A great away from it all break.

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.

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.
