About Merlin Cottages

Merlin Cottages are located in a peaceful rural position in the heart of Carmarthenshire – the Garden of Wales. Great scenery stretches across Carmarthenshire from it’s beaches in the West, to the Black Mountain range in the Brecon Beacon National Park in the East. The cottages are located next to a working livestock farm at the Western edge of the Brecon Beacon National Park and have gained the Visit Wales Walkers Award.

Garden Building: The cottages have a large shared garden building with a common room, laundry room and utility room:

  • The common room has a slate bed snooker/pool table which has a cover for table tennis or larger group gatherings. There is conservatory furniture to help enjoy the most breathtaking views of the National Park.
  • The laundry room has a washing machine, tumble dryer and WC.
  • The utility room has a large freezer, ironing facilities and is a good place to store walking gear.

On the Doorstep: The Crychan Forest has miles of tranquil cycling and walking trails. It is a haven for wildlife with a rich diversity of mammals, birds and insects including red kites, sparrowhawks, goshawks, buzzards, nightjar, peregrine falcon, gold crest, willow warblers and siskin to name just a few.

Under an Hour: The ancient market town of Llandovery is four miles and has a post office, taxi service, railway station, supermarket, take-aways, restaurants, pubs and indoor swimming pool. There are the National Botanic Gardens; Aberglasney Gardens; Llyn Brianne with a stunning lake and walks; Dinefwr Park and Carreg Cennen Castle. Family attractions include the National Showcaves, Red Kite Feeding Station and National Trust Dolaucothi Gold Mines.

Central Location: One of the great advantages is the open roads giving access to most of South and West Wales in just over the hour with great beaches and theme parks.
