This pretty mid-terrace cottage is situated in the village of Llansaint which was developed in the 5th and 6th-century between Kidwelly and Ferryside and makes for a great base to explore the coast and countryside around Carmarthen Bay. Enjoy seaside walks and rock pooling along this rugged coastline or head to Pembrey Country Park for forest walks and cycle paths. Take the ferry from Ferryside (2 miles) to Llansteffan to witness some magnificent views from the castle on the hill. Book a ‘tee’ time at Glynabbey Golf Course (6.5 miles) or experience a day out at Fos Las Racecourse (6.5 miles).

Step through the vibrant pillar box red front door into this relaxing and cosy cottage with an open-plan lounge/diner. Curl up on the soft sofa in front of the wood burner after a busy day of adventures and unwind with a good book or your favourite show on the Smart TV. Stepping through the ground floor to the rear of the property is a charming kitchen area which has been lovingly handcrafted and provides everything you need. Leading from the kitchen is a bright conservatory room which is ideal for sipping your morning coffee with a newspaper. Heading up the wooden staircase you are greeted with a light and spacious king-size bedroom which provides a peaceful retreat for a good night’s sleep and a Smart TV for those lazy lie-ins. The cockle shells placed within the walls are a lovely reminder of the village’s history. Enjoy sea views from the en-suite bathroom. Step through the conservatory into a communal hallway (shared with a neighbouring holiday cottage) which provides access to the enclosed, shared garden at the rear with a patio area, garden furniture and charcoal BBQ, perfect for sipping a sundowner and enjoying some alfresco dining.
