About Coal House

Coal House is spacious and welcoming with an impressive central fireplace, solid wood floors, a hot tub and accommodation over two levels. It has two bedrooms that sleep up to four people, with a comfortable sofabed in the living room that can sleep two further adults if required. Couples, families and friends all love this charming cottage which is on family-run Tanylan Farm close to Kidwelly and just 500 metres from Carmarthen Bay.

Despite its beauty, this part of the Welsh coast is remarkably quiet. Visitors tend to go to the beaches of the Gower or Pembrokeshire, bypassing this gorgeous stretch of coastline with its blend of sandy beaches and rocky bays. There is a beach for all seasons whether you spread your towel on the seven-mile stretch of Pendine Sands or prefer finding a sheltered cove for a spot of private sunbathing. There are beaches for swimming and surfing, and lots of opportunities to kayak and paddle-board either on the river or in Carmarthen Bay.

Walking around Carmarthenshire is one of the greatest pleasures of staying here. There are footpaths to suit everyone whether you want to stroll to St Ishmael beach and the village pub, about a mile from Tanylan Farm via the South West Coast Path, along the Kidwelly Canal and the Gwendraeth Fawr river, around the lake at Llyn Llech Owain, or along the Millenium Coastal Path in Llanelli. Mountain bikers also have a great choice of routes that include purpose-built trails in Brechfa Forest. The western edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park is less than an hour's drive from the cottage, opening up a further array of places to walk and cycle, including the hilltop fortress and the limestone caves below Carreg Cennen Castle.

There are six golf courses within half an hour's drive of Coal House, and Carmarthen Bay is renowned for the quality of its beach fishing. Swansea is within easy reach for a day of shopping and sightseeing, or stroll around the Mumbles' upmarket boutiques before enjoying lunch in a stylish cafe. Narbeth and Tenby are both under an hour away. The former is renowned for its farmers' market and quirky shops, while the latter is a popular resort with three beaches, colourful terraced houses and a wealth of cafes.

Coal House is one of six gorgeous self-catering properties at Tanylan Farm, the biggest of which sleeps up to 16 guests. It's a fantastic place to stay if you want a holiday with extended family or friends as the cottages can, depending on availability, be booked together. Please see the owner's website for information.

Accommodation Comprises:

Coal House is a former agricultural building that has been transformed into a stylish and comfortable holiday cottage with accommodation over two levels.


  • Glass French doors opening onto the private patio and a statement stone fireplace with a wood burner make the living room a place where you'll, happily sit and relax. It's light and airy in summer, yet snug and cosy in winter, making Coal House a fantastic holiday cottage in every season. One of the sofas opens into a double bed.
  • Solid wood floors throughout the open-plan downstairs link the living room, dining area and kitchen. A dining table is on the other side of the fireplace to the living room, with a hardwood table and seating for six people. Dual aspect windows add to the sense of space and let in lots of natural light.
  • Fitted cupboards and modern appliances make excellent use of the space in the kitchen, where you'll find all of the equipment and utensils you'll need to cook for up to six hungry people.
  • Master bedroom with a king-sized (5ft-wide) bed, and an ensuite with a shower over the bath, WC and a handbasin.


  • Twin bedroom with rural views and two single beds. The bedroom has been built under the eaves but there is ample headspace. An ensuite has a shower, WC and a handbasin.

Outside: An enclosed garden has a patio with a barbecue, fire pit and garden furniture. Guests have the luxury of a private outdoor hot tub and ample parking. Pizza oven available upon request. You will also have use of the swim pond and sauna.

Additional Information: All utilities, WiFi, sheets and towels are included, as is an initial basket of fuel for the woodburner. Well behaved dogs are welcome through prior arrangement. Short breaks are possible at certain times of the year, depending on availability. Smoking is not permitted.
