Forest View Cottages, Llanllawddog, Nr Carmarthen Glangwili, once part of a large estate and farm, nestles in the base of an almost alpine like wooded valley near the village of Llanllawddog on the edge of the extensive Brechfa Forest in the rolling countryside of Carmarthenshire, yet only a 10 minute drive outside the bustling town of Carmarthen with its extensive facilities.

This group of self catering holiday cottages are surrounded by 35 acres of grounds including a 3 acre horseshoe shaped lake. It is the perfect spot to enjoy a relaxing picnic as it is a haven for bird and wildlife with kites and buzzards soaring overhead, while swans and geese regularly nest on the lake. 

Each cottage is individually designed with retained beams, feature windows, open plan living spaces and modern fitted kitchens, while outside there is your own paved patio and landscaped communal area where you can enjoy an evening barbecue. Spend your holiday simply relaxing in the grounds or why not explore the Brechfa Forest with its extensive footpaths and famous mountain bike trails - suitable for all levels of experience. Then refuel at the popular Holly Brook at Bronwydd, famous for its lunches and local ale.

A day on the beach is a must as Llansteffan beach is only approximately 17 miles away or a little further, but well worth it is the large, sandy beach of Pembrey - approximately 35 miles/40 minutes and Pendine with its 25 miles of golden sand to wander. Pembrey Country Park is one of Carmarthenshire's most popular attractions being a unique blend of coast and countryside with 202 hectares of glorious park land and the beautiful Cefn Sidan beach set against a backdrop of the Gower Peninsula and Carmarthen Bay.Alternatively why not visit the National Botanical Garden of Wales and Aberglasney Gardens - approximately 26 miles/40 minutes and approximately 28 miles/40 minutes. This is a wonderful escape to the countryside and a chance to explore the real 'garden of Wales' largely undiscovered by visitors.

The owner is a qualified therapist in non surgical facial toning via the award winning CACI micro current and laser system. For further information please contact the owner direct. Contact details supplied on booking.

We enjoyed the lake walk several times and spent afternoons snuggled up on the sofa with cosy blankets, We will be back in March (we cant wait) Although we didnt go this visit if you have a young family we recommend Annas Welsh Zoo -Manor Park for half a day or Folly Farm for a full day,There are kennels nearby who take our collie overnight/for the day when we visit these places Yes it did rain a lot but dont let that spoil your fun-wrap up warm , pull on your wellies and go splash in the puddles!! Folly farm has a massive indoor play area/fair and parts of the farm are undercover
