About Silver Birch Cottage

Silver Birch Cottage is perfect for a rural Welsh escape. Close to the Brecon Beacons National Park, the cottage is in the historic market town of Llandovery, within walking distance of cafes, shops and friendly pubs. The entire house has recently been refurbished to a high standard to sleep up to four people in two lovely ensuite bedrooms and a layout that is perfect for couples or families.

Llandovery is wonderfully Welsh. The Carmarthenshire market town is built beside the River Tywi and has been a hub for the farming communities in the surrounding area for centuries. The market town is steeped in history with its castle ruins and statue of prince Llewellyn as well as being a hub for the old drovers. The town boasts a local butchers, bakery and organic grocers amongst other quaint shops. Llandovery has a great choice of places to eat and drink if you fancy lunch or dinner out, including excellent cafes and tea rooms.

The landscape around Llandovery deserves to be savoured. One of the best ways to enjoy its beauty is on foot. Local trails lead to beauty spots that include the Llyn Brienne Reservoir in the Doethie Valley, Llyn Y Fan Fach, Bannau Sir Gaer, and the waterfalls in Cwm Rhaeadr. The Black Mountains, Crychan Forest and Usk Reservoir are also nearby. With the Brecon Beacons and Brechfa Forest close by, mountain bikers also love this part of Wales.

Watch the magnificent red kites at the feeding station in Llanddeusant, which has been instrumental in increasing numbers of these birds in the wild and is only half an hour's drive from the cottage. Other nearby attractions include the castle at Carreg Cennen and Newton House and Deer Park. Visit the pretty village of Myddfai which was famous in medieval times for its skilled physicians, or climb aboard and take a train over the impressive Cynghordy Viaduct. Not only are the Dolaucothi Goldmines the only Roman goldmines in Britain, but they are just 20-minutes from Llandovery and make a great all-weather attraction.

Whatever time of the year you visit, you'll always find a warm welcome waiting at Silver Birch Cottage.

Accommodation Comprises:

Silver Birch Cottage is on a quiet road with a private garden. Accommodation is over two levels.


  • Settle back on the plump sofas in the living room, and enjoy the cosy atmosphere from the flame effect fire. Calm shades and soft textures add to the relaxing effect and there is a smart TV with Blu-ray player.
  • The separate dining room boasts a large solid wooden table, large enough to accommodate 6 people, so you can have friends join you for dinner during your stay. The elegant proportions of the room also holds a sideboard with dinning accessories and a music centre for your entertainment.
  • Relax with a coffee at the breakfast bar in the kitchen, or keep the cook company with a glass of wine. The owners have taken care to ensure that guests have all of the utensils and equipment they need to cook simple or elaborate meals.


  • Painted beams are a lovely feature of all upstairs rooms, the stairs and spacious landing separates the two en-suite bedrooms.
  • The first bedroom Cwtch (Welsh for hug) has a king-sized bed that can separate into two singles if preferred. There is a feeling of luxury in the high-quality bedlinen and soft furnishings. The modern en-suite houses a luxury double headed rain shower, WC and hand basin.
  • There is no need for compromise with the second bedroom Cariad (Welsh for love) with the same beautiful furnishings with a double bed and the en-suite boasts the same luxury double headed rain shower.

Outside: A private terrace at the rear of the cottage has teak garden furniture and a parasol so that guests can enjoy every minute of sunshine. There is also a lock up shed for bikes etc and a gas BBQ, along with off-street parking for two cars behind secure double gates.
