About the property

Central Location, close to foreshore, parking. Flexible changeover day.

Little Avalon is 2 bedroom cottage situated in a very convenient location, just off the central square in Laugharne. It is close to the shops, restaurants and public houses, yet offers a good degree of privacy, being at the end of a private lane and has an enclosed garden. A great advantage of the location is that you can enjoy an evening out in Laugharne without needing to take the car.

Now with free high speed BT Infinity WiFi.

The house is immaculately presented with quality furnishings. The well equipped kitchen diner includes a ceramic hob, oven, microwave, washing machine, fridge freezer plus all the usual kitchen accessories and a CD/radio. The dining table comfortably seats six people. The spacious lounge has, a leather suite, LCD TV with DVD (DVDs, games and books provided), french doors open on to the patio.There are two bedrooms, each having a double bed; an extra bed and cot can be placed in bedroom 1 on request, allowing flexibility to suit two couples or a family with children. The bathroom has a bath, with electric shower over, a washbasin, and toilet. Little Avalon benefits from central heating, at no extra cost, making it cosy all year round.

The enclosed garden has table and chairs for relaxed outdoor dining on the patio, with views over the river towards the park on one side and glimpses of the castle on the other.There is private allocated parking.

Laugharne is a unique and enchanting little town on the River Taf estuary; famed as being the place which inspired the poet Dylan Thomas. In addition to its restaurants, shops and public houses, it has many of its own tourist attractions including a fine Norman castle, boat house, 1940's museum and riding stables. It has many public walks and the estuary provides varied bird watching opportunities, fishing and boating. The property is just yards from the foreshore and walks along the estuary.

Laugharne is an ideal base from which to explore West Wales. Pendine Sands is only a 10 minute drive away, the resorts of Tenby, Saundersfoot, the beaches and theme parks of Pembrokeshire and the National Botanic Garden are all within easy reach.

About Andrew

We bought this cottage in Laugharne in 2014 as our own holiday home. Having rented villas and cottages for our family holidays we decided to use our experiences to provide our cottage for holiday makers to enjoy too.

It is our aim to make our guests feel welcome and have an enjoyable and relaxing stay at Little Avalon.

Why Andrew chose Carmarthenshire

When we first saw this property we were taken by its unique position; tucked away and peaceful yet right in the centre of the town with all its amenities on the doorstep.

What makes this cottage unique

Little Avalon is located in a quiet location allowing guests to relax, yet is just yards from the very centre of Laugharne.

The parking space is a bonus as you will not need to search for street parking.

Guestbook comments from the owner

(As posted on Tripadvisor)

“Perfect central location for stay in Laugharne. Comfortable and spacious. We loved it!”

5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed by Carl W from Newport - April 2015

We stayed here over the Easter weekend with our two boys, aged 7 and 5. The owners had clearly thought cleverly about everything a young family would need. We were made to feel welcome by thoughtful gifts left for us. The owners were available and helpful when we needed them (before and during our stay) and discreetly out of the picture when we did not. The lounge area was big and comfortable and the kitchen was a light and spacious area well equipped with everything we needed. The bedrooms were really nicely finished and there was a spacious outside area. The property was tucked away so there was a sense of privacy about our stay.



The location is perfect for a stay in Laugharne! The castle is a minute's walk away, and the seafront is on the doorstep. There are restaurants, cafes and a convenience store in the square round the corner and a child's play area at the back of the property. It suited all of us down to the ground. We are planning a return visit for sure.

A warm and functional base in small town setting.

  • 4 of 5

Everything worked, spacious rooms, beds comfortable, owner went out of their way to be helpful. I have stayed in town before but I found this house and it's patio to be quite overlooked. Easy level walk to centre of town though, allocated parking and no traffic noise was a definite bonus.

Owner's Response: Little Avalon is not in a secluded location, it is conveniently situated in the town centre yet offers a degree of privacy. Little Avalon is overlooked by just one house and this is at the rear, behind a six foot wooden fence.

Absolutely Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

We are regular visitors to Laugharne and have stayed in many cottages. Little Avalon is a fabulous cottage, which is clean and well maintained and is right in the heart of the village. The cottage is situated in a quiet location with no passing traffic.

fabulous cottage

  • 5 of 5

Little Avalon was the perfect place for a few days break. The cottage is very comfortable and superbly furnished and provided with everything we could need. The Welsh tea provided by Andrew and Angela was a delicious treat. The cottage is in a great location in Laugharne and we enjoyed walks along the estuary and visited the Boat House. It is also a good base for visiting further afield. I will certainly recommend it to friends.

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

Our first time using a holiday rental. Simple and easy to understand directions and instructions. House spotlessly clean and well equipped (very child friendly). Complimentary, good quality, bottle of wine and cake left for us upon arrival. Private location, even though only stones throw from centre. Beautiful area to explore. Breakfast at Arthur's Restaurant was superb. Portreves Restaurant for evening meal very good. Will return to house.

superb cottage, ideal for families. wonderfully equiped and furnished

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful cottage, comfortable and beautifully furnished. A home from home. Could not think of any negative points. It was fabulously equipped and even had a bbq. We stayed with our 3 children and the owners even went to the trouble of getting an extra highchair and cot for our stay. Lovely garden, secure and safe for a family. Great location. Close to lovely beaches and all the attractions are close by. We will definitely return. We cant imagine we could find anywhere nicer to stay on our annual trip to west wales
