Stunning barn conversion adjacent to 40 acre private woodland near Laugharne in West Wales. It's absolute heaven for families with young children with the woods to explore, and the many beautiful beaches of Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire a short drive away. Peaceful, secluded and hidden in its own valley, it's a birdwatcher's paradise and a fabulous rural retreat.
Set in a wooded valley, the barn provides warm, spacious and comfortable holiday accommodation for 4-5 people. It’s particularly suitable for children and those who wish to explore the outdoor life. Bird watchers and those who like walking will find the location perfect. Tastefully furnished and with all mod cons, the barn is light and airy and is kept warm and cosy all year round with underfloor heating fuelled by logs from our sustainably managed woodlands. It has fast, reliable wifi and plenty of children’s books and games which are popular with visitors who also enjoy BBQs on the south facing patio or in the woods themselves. The quality of our customer service and sustainability have both been recognised through awards by the Carmarthenshire Tourist Association.
The local area is well known for its green pastures and wooded valleys as well as ancient castles and beautiful sandy beaches. The two main rivers in the county are the Teifi and the Tywi and coracles can still be seen on both. We are only 30 minutes from the Preseli mountains. This part of Wales is steeped in history and visitors may want to visit Laugharne, Carmarthen, Narberth or Haverfordwest as well as the many seaside towns. The beautiful coastline of Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire is easily accessible for day trips. Aberglasney and The Botanic Gardens are both only a short distance. Many of our visitors of all ages take a trip to Bronwydd to see the Gwili steam railway. Perhaps the best time to visit is during May when the spring birds are at their most vocal. Bluebells adorn our woods and walking locally is at its best. Without doubt what we enjoy most about the area is the sea including the Pembrokeshire coast, The Wales Coast Path, the island of Skomer with its puffins, the wonderful beaches, the coastal walks and the magnificent variety of birdlife. Cwmpalis woods has over 50 species of birds in the spring and summer.
