Renovated Farmhouse on the edge of the National Trust's Dolaucothi Estate. High on the hill, overlooking the beautiful Cothi Valley, the house is superbly located for exploring the Carmarthenshire and Ceredigion countryside and coast. The quirky, hip and bustling small town of Llandeilo is just a short drive away.

Le logement

Our traditional Welsh Farmhouse nestles on top of a hill overlooking the Cothi valley. The house is at the end of a long private lane, occasionally shared with a few sheep.
The house is situated in northern Carmarthenshire, a mile outside of the village Pumsaint (aka Pumpsaint) – or "Five Saints". Named after a quintet of holy pilgrims who once stopped here en route to St David's – the village is part of the National Trust's 2,500-acre Dolaucothi Estate.
As well as come amazing walks and wildlife (red kites, red squirrels, peregrine falcons, goshawks, buzzards (inc. rumour has it, the honey buzzard)) you can explore the Dolaucothi Gold Mine.
The mines are great for all ages - and especially good for rainy days. Our children love both the underground tours - but also experiencing the chance to pan for gold (and always finding some!)
There's superb hiking in the area, as we're situated at the base of the Cambrian Mountains and the Brecon Beacons National Park is just down the road.
If mountain biking is your thing then head for Brechfa Forest - about 2 miles from the house.
If you want to bring animals - then that's cool. We can provide stabling for your horse; or a kennel for the dog (although they're also welcome in the house (the dog not the horse).
There's also fishing for sea trout (sewin, in Welsh) in the nearby River Towy.
If you want to head to the coast we'd recommend Aberaeron - where you can enjoy some delicious food at the Harbour Master Hotel. Or if you're looking for a beach we'd recommend the beautiful National Trust beach at Penbryn (about 35 mins from Pumsaint).

The house comprises:
Living room (with wood burning stove)
3 Double bedrooms (1 with ensuite including shower)
1 Single bedroom
Family bathroom (bath + shower)
Study (with desk)
Kitchen (with aga)
Dining room
Utility room
Down stairs cloakroom

Accès des voyageurs

Our guests have free run of the place. There's a meadow adjoining the garden where children or dogs can run wild.
There is a trampoline in the meadow for the children - and they're welcome to explore surrounding countryside, where they'll probably find our children's dens.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

We don't live at the property - no-one will be there apart from you! But we're always available should you need us by phone. We live just over an hour away so can always get to you if needed.

Autres remarques

Ours is a long drive. In parts it's bumpy - but perfectly suitable for cars - just drive slowly and carefully. It is very important that you stay on the road - the verges on the side are soft and there's a shallow but concealed ditch to one side - which will require a tractor to pull you out of (which we're pretty well practised in).

Règlement intérieur
Non fumeur

Do not touch the settings on the Aga - we will set it for you. Please do NOT try to turn it up or down. We've left you an Aga cookbook, which explains the basics of Aga cooking as well as recipes.
We're happy to accept dogs. But Penarth Isaf is surrounded on all sides by sheep fields, so whilst you can let your dog run in our meadow, it's important that he/she doesn't chase the sheep in the neighbouring fields.
We would also ask that dogs are kept downstairs - not in any of the bedrooms - or on the sofas and chairs. And of course please pick up any dog mess.
If you smoke - please smoke outside.
We brought up our children here - and they spent many hours playing near the pond and in the stream that runs about 150m from the house. But please do be careful with young children around the pond and stream.
Also there are some old empty barns and a coach house that form part of the farmyard - again please be careful - they're very old buildings.

Simon has been a wonderful host. We spend a three week family holiday at his house and the only thing that was not perfect was the welsh weather. Would definitely recommend it.

Lovely country retreat, with loads of space outside and in. The house was really comfortable and perfect for cosying-up in. Loved the aga and huge kitchen which was perfect for enjoying big family meals. Thank you Simon.

We had a brilliant 4 day stay at Simon's wonderful house. The location was stunning with breathtaking views over the countryside. The house was great - well equipped and comfortable with a fantastic garden. It was so peaceful, I'm not sure I've ever been anywhere so quiet! Simon was a great host, easily contactable and really helpful. The local pub was fantastic - great food and beer and filled with friendly locals who couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. There is plenty to do in the local area - we could easily have stayed another couple of weeks and not been bored. Pen Bryn beach and the gold mines were fab and definitely worth the visit! We had a great time and really couldn't fault a thing. Thanks again Simon!

This place is a hidden gem! We went on a friends trip over easter and the scenery and farmhouse were lovely. Lots of lovely touches like welsh cakes, drinks, good sound system, cosy fireplace and nice sunroom. We explored the area surrounding and relaxed over the break. Thank you for helping us create some great memories

Just as all the other reviews say, the house is fantastic and in a beautiful, peaceful location. We settled in immediately and felt right at home. All communication with Simon has been great and super easy. The local pub is really lovely and the surrounding countryside is gorgeous, perfect for walks. Highly recommended :)
