  • Spacious farmhouse in the scenic Carmarthenshire countryside
  • Equipped with a shared hot tub and ideal for family or group reunions
  • Perfectly located for hiking, mountain biking and a wealth of outdoor pursuits
Property code: BN208

A detached traditional former Carmarthenshire farmhouse set in an idyllic 80-acre estate, for impressive landscape views and a range of trails into the forests from your doorstep.

This fabulous property, situated 5 miles from Llandovery, is perfect for family or friends’ reunions – not leaving the pups behind, of course! Sleeping eight across four tranquil bedrooms and with plenty of space for up to two dogs to stretch out, it won’t be long before you’re off exploring the stunning countryside around you. If you’ve got little legs (both human and canine) with you, take the 2-mile circular walk from the impressive Cynghordy Viaduct (0.5 miles), or if you’re up for a challenge try the 7-mile Heart of Wales Line Trail that also starts there.

The property, which can be booked with other holiday homes on site to sleep a maximum of 29, is spacious and comfortable. The open-plan living area is fresh and bright with the kitchen feeling like the hub of the home; trendy spotlighting and glossy worktops make it a pleasure to cook in. Everyone can eat at the large breakfast island or enjoy a more formal meal at the long wooden dining table. Retire to the sofas and watch TV in the evening while the pups lounge by your feet, or take advantage of the shared indoor hot tub to soak away those aches from hiking.

Straight from the front door you can take a 3-mile walk up the valley to Cynnant hill for wonderful views. There are plenty of forests to wander through that the pups will love sniffing around in. The Dolaucothi Gold Mines (16.5 miles) are perfect for a family day out, where you can see remnants of the Romans’ gold mining techniques but also take in beautiful views of the Cothi Valley. The National Showcaves Centre for Wales (26 miles) is also not to be missed with ten attractions within three different caves offering a unique underground experience.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The cottage is well equipped and comfortable but the Welsh covid restrictions do make any stay more awkward because even cooker instructions are not allowed. The hot tub is great but check that you can live with the opening hours and the sharing aspects of the tub. There is an issue with cluster flies which, although harmless, did cause some of ourRead more party to become compulsive swatters. None of the above would stop us staying again and the scenery around the cottage is stunning. Hide

We had a lovely time at Ketrel cottage, six adults and two children. The cottage was clean, the hot tub was available but was a bit too hot for the children. We were disappointed in the such late check in and early check out which cut our long weekend at the cottage short.

The most wonderful cottage, spotlessly clean, well equipped and set in the most jaw dropping country side. Our host Mrs Lloyd was delightful. We have the most amazing holiday memories, would throughly recommend Kestral cottage.

See above. We did wonder if normally (in non COVID times) there are a few books or other literature on shelves for reading (eg on the local area and attractions). That said, we did not really need them ourselves.

Wonderful stay. Owners especially Lucy were very friendly, who welcomed us to this beautiful working sheep farm and were very helpful in quickly addressing any needs we had. Kestrel Farmhouse is large, spacious, clean, fresh, warm and fully equipped with everything required to keep us more than happy. Having an en suite with every bedroom is great Read morefor our busy family of 2 adults and 4 children. The weather was great, the scenery beautiful, the environment relaxing, we couldn't ask for more. Hide
