Region: Famous for its choirs, stunning mountain ranges and beautiful valleys, this wonderful country has something for everyone. From Snowdonia in North Wales to the Brecon Beacons and the Pembrokeshire Coast in the South.
Town: With beautiful rolling hills, a superb coastline, unique flowers and gardens, gold mines, some of Britain's best fishing, Carmarthen is a fantastic location to get away from it all. Locally, you can explore the beautiful Cambrian Mounts in the north of the county, to the majestic Black Mountain, and the national park at Brecon Beacons, and picturesque Tywi Valley in the east. For garden lovers, east of Llanarthne is situated the Welsh National Botanic Garden, which boasts the world's largest single-span glass house and Britain's most lengthy herbaceous border. The unusual Hywel Dda Gardens and Interpretive Centre located in the west of the county has six gardens, each representing a section of the legal world. For those interested in the history of welsh gold, the Dolaucothi Gold Mines on the hillside of the beautiful Cothi Valley conducts tours which describe the history and skills needed to pan gold, lectures about underground mining, and you can view gold on exhibition. Fresh water fishing abounds in the River Teifi with some of the world's best salmon, sea and brown trout fishing. Speed-freaks will enjoy Pendine Sands, where Malcolm Campbell broke three land speed records, and the nearby Pendine Museum of Speed has the vehicles he used on display.

I can honestly say this cottage gave me nothing to complain
about at all. It is very well equipped extremely clean and furnished
To a very high standard.
The owners are very helpful and we had a lovely little
Welcome pack on arrival.
I would definitely stay here again without any doubt.

Very peaceful location with a good old fashioned pub only a mile away. From the cottage all you could see was views - no roads, not traffic noise. Cottage was home from home and very tastefully equipped. Our first breakfast was boiled eggs with soldiers using eggs from the chickens on the farm left as part of the welcome. Debbie was brilliant. So helpful and full of extremely useful information, always on hand but never intrusive. Can't wait for an excuse to go to this part of the country again and return to Barn Owl Cottage.
"An unforgettable, awesome experience with fabulous people."

A scenic, beautiful and peaceful setting combined with a luxuriously equipped cottage and thoughtful, charming hosts.
As close to perfection you will ever find.
The hosts of this gem truly make you feel at home and are very accommodating yet never intrusive. There is a splendid pub just down the country lane and Carmarthen is a short drive away.
"It wasa marvellous holiday'also thanks to the beautiful cottage!"

When we came it was a warm welcome: the cottage was nicely clean and warm and we got a nice basket with eegs, coockies, coffee ect.
Also Debbie came in to welcome us.
One or two times we asked for something and Ian came immediatly to give us explanation about the DVD recorder, though it was in the evening. We felt we were really welcome.
