About Hawton

Hawton is one of six beautifully refurbished cottages at Tanylan Farm. The property boasts a hot tub, three bedrooms with space for up to six guests, an impressive central staircase and the sort of character that you only find in period properties. It was built in the 16th-Century in the traditional style of longhouses that are characteristic to this part of Pembrokeshire in South West Wales and is a wonderfully comfortable base for families and friends to explore Carmarthen Bay, Pembrokeshire and the Gower Peninsula.

You don't need to go far to have a fantastic adventure when you stay at Hawton. Cardigan Bay is less than 500 metres from Tanylan Farm, giving guests a choice of beaches that are perfect for lazing in the sunshine. St Ishmael beach is about a 15-minute walk from the cottage. It is a mix of sand and shingle, and only accessible via the West Coast Path. Other beaches nearby include Llansteffan, Ferryside, Pembrey Beach in Llanelli, and Pendine Sands. Rhossili Bay, which is managed by the National Trust and renowned for its beautiful displays of sunflowers in late summer, is also close, being about nine miles away.

As relaxing as the farm and surrounding countryside is, it's easy to stay active when you're at Hawton. Walking, mountain biking, cycling and horse riding are just a few of many ways to explore. You can go kayaking or paddleboarding on Carmarthen Bay, surf at one of the Gower's beautiful beaches or go kiteboarding at Pendine Sands. Local activity companies offer experiences such as gorge walking and abseiling, or try your luck beach fishing for sea bass, or attempting a hole-in-one on one of six golf courses within a 30-minute radius.

Oaklands Theme Park is always a hit with the kids, as is Folly Farm. Mix energetic adventures with relaxing days at places like the Llanelli Wetland Centre, the National Botanic Garden of Wales, and the 180-acre Llyn Llech Owain park. Three miles from Hawton, Kidwelly has a good choice of shops and places to eat and drink. Don't miss Kidwelly Castle, rumoured to be haunted by Princess Gwenllian, who died while storming the castle in 1136. Swansea is less than an hour's drive with shops, restaurants, a rich history and an exciting nightlife. Alternatively, head an hour west to the charming seaside town of Tenby which has three beaches an excellent array of cafes, and some of the best ice-cream in the south-west of Wales.

Hawton is one of six lovely self-catering properties at Tanylan Farm. It can be booked on its own, or together with one or more of the other properties if you are on holiday with your friends or extended family. Please see the owner's website for information.

Accommodation Comprises:

The farm's 17th Century longhouse has been transformed into three terraced cottages, including Hawton. Accommodation is over two levels and features original stone walls and oak beams.


  • You'll feel right at home in the comfortable living room which has a log burning stove in the stone fireplace for extra cosiness in cold weather. There is ample seating on leather sofas and armchairs, and a flatscreen TV.
  • Dress the dining table up for special meals and linger over lazy brunch with the curtains open to a gorgeous rural view. The dining table is big enough for six guests with room for serving platters and bowls - ideal if you're having a Sunday lunch or Christmas dinner.
  • There's a charmingly rustic feel to the kitchen diner, with it's tiled floor and Shaker-style cupboards. These contrast with the modern appliances that include a dishwasher.
  • Handy cloakroom with a WC and handbasin.


  • Master bedroom with a double bed, feature stone wall and original oak beams. The ensuite has a shower over the bath, WC and a handbasin.
  • Two twin-bedrooms, each with two full-sized single beds and proper storage.
  • Family bathroom with a shower over the bath, a heated towel rail, WC and a handbasin.

Outside: Make the most of good weather with a barbecue on the patio, and relax in the private hot tub. There is a level area of lawn and off-street parking. Pizza oven available upon request. You will also have use of our swim pond and sauna. 

Additional Information: Utilities, WiFi, sheets and towels are all provided, as is a basket of logs for the wood burner. The cottage is pet-friendly with up to two well-behaved dogs welcome through prior arrangement. Smoking is not permitted.
