About Manordaf Holiday Cottage

Manordaf is a welcoming holiday cottage in St Clears, close to fantastic beaches, historic sites, shops and pubs like the friendly Corvus Inn. It's in a wonderful location beside River Taf within the grounds of the owner's house, where they also run a very successful B&B. They're on hand to greet guests and answer any questions about where to go and what to do to make the most of your stay. Manordaf holiday cottage sleeps four people in two bedrooms and is ideal for couples and families who want to explore Carmarthen's coast, castles, and beyond.

St Clear's is the perfect choice for discovering the best of Carmarthenshire. It has great road links, so you won't find yourself navigating twisty country lanes to find it, and it is also serviced by National Express Coaches. You will find all the amenities you need for a self-catering holiday, including a small supermarket, two award-winning butchers, three pubs serving good food, cafes and takeaways. Pay attention when walking over the bridge as the panels depict a boar known as Twrch Trwyth being pursued by King Arthur. Also worth mentioning is The Gate (Y Gat), which is a lovely stone mill store transformed into an art gallery, library, and exhibition centre.

Although calm and relaxed today, the atmosphere around here hasn't always been so peaceful. The Norman motte and bailey castle, which stood firm against the efforts of Owain Glyndwr in 1401 before falling to his 1405 campaign, is no more, although visitors can walk to the top of the 30ft high motte and enjoy views of the surrounding farmland. Just a few miles away you can visit the impressive Laugharne Castle (the film location for the BBC drama Keeping Faith), or Carmarthen, Llansteffan, Dryslwyn, Carreg Cennen and Kidwelly castles are nearby too.

This region boasts some of the most beautiful beaches in Wales. St Clears is only a few miles from Pendine Sands and Telpyn and within easy reach of Saundersfoot and Tenby. If the wind is blowing in the wrong direction for a day on a south-facing beach, then jump on the A40, and you'll soon find yourself at Broad Haven and Little Haven. Walking and cycling are both extremely popular pastimes for locals and visitors. The Wales Coast Path and Cycle Route 4 pass next to Manordaf. The cottage has secure storage for bicycles. Manordaf has 100 yards of tidal fishing.

Manordaf is available for bookings all year round. There's plenty to do when it's sunny but, just as important, lots to see and do when it's not. Local attractions include Folly Farm, Dylan Thomas' Boathouse, the National Botanic Gardens of Wales, Picton Castle and Woodland Gardens, Oakwood Theme Park and the Museum of Speed at Pendine Sands where Malcolm Campbell made the first world land speed record reaching a mighty speed of 146.16 mph in Blue Bird. The Festival of Speed marks the occasion each year.
