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. A day on the beach is a must as Llansteffan beach is only approximately 17 miles away. This group of self-catering holiday cottages are surrounded by 35 acres of grounds which you are free to wander 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. There is the spacious bungalow, *Nantglas, set in its own large enclosed lawned garden, and a terrace of *3 beautiful high quality cottages converted from the original stone dairy and barn which are adjacent to the owners’ house, once the rather stately stable block to the neighbouring Manor House. Each cottage is individually designed with retained beams, feature windows, open plan living spaces and modern fitted kitchens, while outside there is your own enclosed 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 Black Lion Pub in Abergorlech, where the trails begin, famous for its lunches and local ale. Alternatively why not visit the National Botanical Gardens and Aberglasney and take advantage of our exclusive ticket offers. This is a wonderful escape to the countryside and a chance to explore the real garden of Wales largely undiscovered by visitors.
