About Cryddion

Cryddion is the perfect coastal bolt-hole for two, sitting in the seaside village of Llansteffan - a well-kept secret on Carmarthenshire's beautiful south coast of Wales. Formerly the home of the local cobbler and later a wool shop, this delightful little cottage has been beautifully converted and offers the perfect marriage of original features and character, cleverly blended with stylish modern conveniences.

Encapsulated by lush rolling hills, Llansteffan sits in an enviable position on the sandy shores of the Tywi Estuary and whilst small (and exceptionally picturesque!), has two pubs for a meal out as well as a village shop for forgotten provisions and magnificent castle ruins that keep a watchful eye over the area.

Llansteffan is just perfect for those who want to tuck themselves away and enjoy walking, relaxing and sea air. The coastline and estuary setting is simply stunning and abundant with wildlife and opportunities for walking. Visit in the spring when the bluebells carpet the woods and the wild garlic gently floats in the air; or in the winter when you can blow the cob webs away then relax in front of the glow of the log burner.

Carmarthen's ancient town is within easy driving distance (less than ten miles) and offers a good array of eateries, shops and entertainment with a bowling alley, swimming pool in the leisure centre, cinema for taking in a movie, shops selling local arts and crafts and an indoor market.

Head further afield and within one hour's drive you can be discovering the beauty of the vast outdoor playground of the Brecon Beacons National Park; enjoying outdoor adventures on the Pembrokeshire Coast (the birthplace of coasteering with incredible water sports on offer); or relaxing on one of the stunning beaches of the Gower Peninsula.

Alternatively, just stay put and enjoy the little piece of Welsh paradise that is Llansteffan.
