About Blaencwm

Blaencwm is an attractive stone farmhouse sleeping up to six guests in three bedrooms. Offering a taste of country life with dogs if you wish, Blaencwm has a family feel – it is not just a letting property - but also used at times by the owner who lives in the adjoining garden house. Nestling amongst 64 acres of land - 49 acres of farmland and 15 acres of recently replanted woodland, it offers peace and tranquillity in abundance. A place where guests can escape away from it all with not another house in sight for miles, enjoying everything the property and surrounding land has to offer, giving children freedom to explore and adventure forth or relax inside with a roaring log burner and play indoor games like table tennis, darts and Monopoly. The Wifi and 4G is good enough to try rural WFH (the owner finds it a lovely peaceful place to WFH!).

Blaencwm, which means Head of the Valley, is approached by its own farm lane and this welcoming retreat affords uninterrupted views that span for some 15 miles over the River Towy below. The setting is simply stunning with no light pollution to affect the dark starry skies and only the sound of bird song and sheep to interrupt the peace and tranquility. Welsh black mountain and Jacobs sheep graze the surrounding pasture land whilst buzzards and kites soar up above and woodpeckers nest in the woodland.

For a meal out, you have the choice of two pubs within three miles of the farm, as well as Llandeilo and Carmarthen with a good range of shops and eateries. South Wales also has more than its fair share of glorious sandy beaches peppering the Gower, Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and Carmarthen Bay. The Brecon Beacons is also within easy reach offering plenty of opportunity for outdoor adventure. Lace up your walking boots and explore the lovely walks on the doorstep of Blaencwm or enjoy a day walking the coastal footpath or National Park. Cycling also provides another great way to explore the area with its long sweeping (and at times hilly!) routes, and tracks and trails of Brecha Forest for those who prefer to be off-road.

There are plenty of local attractions to keep all ages occupied including Dinefwr, Dryslwyn and Carreg Cennen Castles and Talley Abbey and Lakes. For those with green fingers, the National Botanic Gardens of Wales and Aberglasney Gardens are both within a half hour drive of the farmhouse, whilst Folly Farm is sure to be a hit with the younger ones. The dolphins and seals of Cardigan Bay are also not to be missed.

Location (Carmarthenshire)

A comfortable centrally heated farmhouse with family feel sleeping up to six guests

Blaencwm sleeps up to six guests with accommodation split across two floors. Beautifully combining traditional charm with modern conveniences, accommodation comprises:

Ground Floor:

  • Entrance porch which takes you into...
  • Tiled hallway which leads into the living room and the ground floor double bedroom.
  • Large family/living room with big stone fireplace housing a log burning stove - the perfect place to relax after a long day exploring the area with lovely views over to the Towy Valley. A comfy reclining sofa and armchairs provides plenty of space for everyone and there is a Smart TV (including Sky TV and Sports).
  • Like the living room, the kitchen is also very spacious and has lovely views and a table with chairs for dining. Well equipped for self-catering, it has a gas range (with seven burners), dishwasher, microwave and a good range of cupboards stocked with everything you will need for rustling up suppers for eight hungry guests.
  • Utility room which the owner also has access to with a washing machine and tumble dryer.
  • Double bedroom with plenty of clothes storage in the built-in wardrobe - this room is perfect for those who prefer to not climb stairs.
  • Family bathroom with a shower over the bath, wash basin, WC and heated towel rail.

First Floor:

  • Ensuite master bedroom has a king-size bed, wooden floor and lovely views over to the Towy Valley. The ensuite shower room has a WC and wash basin.
  • Like the master bedroom, the twin bedroom has the same lovely views and has tables with reading lights beside both single beds. There is a built in wardrobe for clothes storage.

Outside: There is plenty of space to relax outside on reclining chairs and enjoy the wrap-around patio area, the large garden lawn and grounds to kick a ball and paddock in front for the children to let off steam and explore. The farmhouse is surrounded by its own pasture land, woodland area with pond leading to stream below with great walks for dogs on the land, with access to a further 75 acres of woodland being replanted. When the sun shines the house is bathed in sunshine all day and two picnic benches on the front and back allow you to follow the sun round the house. There are two BBQ areas - a stone built BBQ (please bring charcoal) by the house and also a rustic log seating area and BBQ which burns logs (ideal for roasting marshmallows!) in the paddock. There is a 'Farm Shed' where children (and adults!) can play darts and table tennis and store bikes. For those bringing dogs, you are welcome to use a timber stable which has been converted into a kennel.

Additional Information: Prices include central heating oil, electricity, gas, water and all utilities, bed linen duvets (and also blankets), towels (please bring beach towels if required), WiFi, Sky TV inc Sky Sports and two large initial baskets of hardwood logs for the log burner or rustic BBQ plus all kindling wood for your stay and use of the owner’s beach gear. Up to two well behaved dogs are most welcome by prior arrangement with the owner (dogs are to be kept out of fields where sheep are grazing and sorry but no cats or horses). Children must be supervised at all times when in the Farm Shed (a number of large plastic outdoor type toys available for under fives), when around the pond, stream or mountain biking in the woods or on the farm lane.
