About the property

House near Broad Oak, Carmarthen, Wales - Beautiful Peaceful And Isolated Location With Glorious Views Towards The Black Mounta

This period house has an outstanding country setting with views towards the Black Mountain, an outdoor heated swimming-pool, and a games barn all set in its own large secluded and secure garden. Its own private woodland extends to the south-east of the property and open fields extend on all sides. It is perfectly placed to explore the Gower and the South Pembrokeshire Coast. It is close to Aberglasney Gardens (2 miles), the National Botanic Gardens of Wales and beautiful Dinfwr Park. The surrounding area supports a wonderful variety of wildlife including Red Kites. There is fishing nearby on the River Towy. Golf, tennis and riding are all available nearby. The local town of Llandeilo (4 miles) offers good restaurants and interesting shops. The tourist attractions of Pembrokeshire are within easy driving distance.

About Robert Lankester

My wife and I are both teachers working in the independent sector. I am a Head Teacher, and my wife teaches drama and swimming. We have two children aged 22 and 28. We live in the countryside in Northamptonshire. We have a house in Wales and a villa in Turkey.

Robert Lankester purchased this house in 1949

Why Robert Lankester chose Carmarthenshire

We inherited this house in 1998. It had been in the family for many years previously. My wife is half Welsh and she was brought up on the neighbouring Hafodneddyn Estate. For many years her grandmother lived in the house. We live and work in a boarding school in England but use the house as our main residence when we can in the holidays. However, in the summer we tend to be abroad so the house is available for holiday lets. It is also often available during term time. It is a most wonderful house which is an oasis of calm and we love spending time there. You will be staying in a much loved family home, but please do not expect IKEA throughout or hermetically sealed windows and doors!

Fantastic cottage - would definitely stay again

  • 5 of 5

One of the best cottages I have ever stayed in. The house is very homely and the gardens and pool were great. The garden was especially good for the dogs and there was plenty of wood already chopped up for the fire for us to use. Its conveniently located to the local town and there are lots of things to do within a half an hour drive. I would definitely recommend to any one looking for a secluded cottage with a home away from home feel
