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.

Beaches near Ty Dyffryn

Llansteffan
Llansteffan (sometimes spelt Llanstephan) is a long sandy beach against the River Towy, situated just across the water from Ferryside. Car Parking is currently free, but there are talks of implementing parking charges. Dogs are welcome onto the beach during the winter months providing they are kept on leads, however restrictions are then put in place from 1st May to the 30th September forbidding dogs on this beach. Technically, this is a tidal estuary rather than a beach, and so it is recommended to supervise children bathing at all times due to the strong currents in the water.
Tresaith
Tresaith is a delightful little sandy beach, very popular with families during the summer offering safe swimming and rock pools. There is a waterfall at the northern end of the beach which is a result of glacial activity when a glacier blocked and diverted the route of the river Saith, causing it to cascade in a waterfall directly onto the beach. Dolphins can be spotted almost daily throughout the Summer.
Cwmtydu
Primarily a pebble beach, Cwmtydu Beach is a small cove with plenty of rockpools. A popular place for spotting dolphins as seals, mean that this cove is often known locally as Seals Bay, due to the frequent views of seals lounging on the rocks. Cwmtydu Beach is dog friendly all year round.
Carmarthen

Pendine Sands is a 7-mile long, straight beach, smoothered in the most beautiful sand and edged by a belt of dunes. From the beach there are clear views across Carmarthen Bay to Gower and Tenby.
In the summer of 2000, Don Wales made history on this beach, by breaking the Uk electric land speed record in his vehicle, reaching a staggering 137mph.
Please note that it is always worth checking to see if the MOD are using the area for firing practice, around the time of your proposed visit. If they are, then red flags will be raised and part of the beach will be closed to the public (although the firing itself is a good distance away).

New Quay's Blue Flag Award-winning, harbour beach is popular with many visitors. It's pale sand and clear water makes a picture perfect setting for a relaxing day in the sun. Its fabulous cafe serves hot and cold drinks, light snacks and sells many of the usual beach accessories. Toilets with disabled access and a shower are available at the top of the footpath that leads down to the main beach. Ample car parking is available around the village, all are ticket machined. There is additional disabled parking available above the main beach, but get there early as it is limited. Dogs are banned between 1st May and 30th September, and dog bins are situated along the beach.

Kelly Carl Madison, Zara and Jenson

Our first forest view Christmas! and our firest stay in Ty Dyffryn, what a cosy cottage. As always a fabulous break and Gina and Jason provided plenty of seasonal extras including a beautiful tree! This was a relaxing break for all the family and the car never left the car park!! 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


Isobel, Rachel and Cam

Thank you for a really lovely stay, The Cottage was perfect you had thought of everything. The area is beautiful, we will definately be back


Scott Party

A real ''home from home'' atmosphere Very welcoming owners and nothing is too much trouble! Beautifully kept grounds, easy access parking and entering the cottage we were not disappointed! The first thing you see as you swing into the drive is the lake, sheep and horses and at the last turn the cottages below the amazing pine forest.


Karen and Pete McCarthy

Great Location, Superb Accomodation, Frienglyh Atmosphere. Welsh Cakes were a great hit. Would Recommend.


Hitchcroft Party

Well what a little piece of heaven. Wonderful scenery and fantastic accommodation in every detail. We have had a lovely holiday. Visiting places like Tenby, Amroth, Broad Haven to name a few and well worth the trip also our two dogs have had a great time. Congratulations Jason and Gina. We will certainly be back.


Anura, Ann and Aaran

Had a wonderful short break with our 10 week old son. Beautiful cottage and location Shame about the weather but had a lovely time regardless.


Patricia Rachel Emma and Gerard

Great base for holiday break. Fantastic accommodation. Central location ideal to visit Tenby. Gower, Cardiff etc. Highly recommend evening meals at Tafarn Pantydderwen, in Llangain, on the road to Llansteffan. Looking forward to re-visiting to discover more of South Wales.


Jim Lorraine and Steve

A great week in a wonderful house, enjoyed the great walks and surroundings in fantastic countryside, great beaches look forward to return for another wonderful break - Thank you!


Wallington Family

A delightful week in this wonderful house - every detail thought of. We also congratulate you on the stunning conversions, every need for the holiday maker but sympathetically in harmony with the surroundings. Mixed weather, but still enjoyed good mountain biking at Brechfa and the amazing beaches, Recommend Pembry country park - also dog friendly. We hope to be back soon!


Meredith Party

As the first guests to stay at Ty Dyffryn we would like to congratulate all involved in giving those splendid old buildings to new life. The restoration is of very high standard and very effort, to the smallest detail, has been made for convenience and comfort. Despite mixed weather Carmarthenshire and the valley are beautiful to visit and ideally placed. A Splendid holiday. Thank you.
