  • Spacious farmhouse in the scenic Carmarthenshire countryside
  • Equipped with a shared hot tub and ideal for family or group reunions
  • Perfectly located for hiking, mountain biking and a wealth of outdoor pursuits
Property code: BN208

A detached traditional former Carmarthenshire farmhouse set in an idyllic 80-acre estate, for impressive landscape views and a range of trails into the forests from your doorstep.

Its brilliant location in the Carmarthenshire countryside makes this the perfect abode for those with a passion for exploring on foot and two wheels. Surrounded by tracks and trails and only an 8-mile trip to the RSPB Gwenffrwd-dinas Nature Reserve, there is always an adventure to be had. Sleeping eight guests across four bedrooms and with a large, open-plan hub of the house, this farmhouse is a wonderful place to call home whilst holidaying with family and friends. An extra treat to welcome you home from outside is the bubbling hot tub (shared with other properties on-site), the perfect remedy for aching muscles. With two of your dogs also welcome, be sure to pack the treat jar and get ready to embark on stick hunts.

 

With your bags full of provisions to fill the cupboards, make your way into the fantastic kitchen where there is plenty of space to store goodies. Its sleek worktops and storage make catering for all of your party as easy as can be, and the island is great for piling high with breakfast bowls and gathering around with a mug of coffee. For formal meals and sociable drinks, make use of the dining table which comfortably seats eight and is also a great place to play games. When it’s been a long day in the great outdoors and you want to snuggle up and get cosy for the night, make your way to the lounge and put your feet up on one of two sofas before heading off to bed to drift into sleep. Of four bedrooms, one sits on the ground floor and has its own en-suite shower room with WC. If you’re climbing stairs to the first floor, you are also treated to an en-suite shower room and must take care of sloping ceilings. There is ample off-road parking.

We stayed in the Kestrel cottage which I booked for my husbands 60th birthday and it was lovely. The only issue we had was the sofas which either needs to be replace or reupholstered to make them very comfortable. The owner, Lucy, was very attentive and welcoming. The location was superb with some amazing scenery local to the cottage

The cottage is well equipped and comfortable but the Welsh covid restrictions do make any stay more awkward because even cooker instructions are not allowed. The hot tub is great but check that you can live with the opening hours and the sharing aspects of the tub. There is an issue with cluster flies which, although harmless, did cause some of ourRead more party to become compulsive swatters. None of the above would stop us staying again and the scenery around the cottage is stunning. Hide

We had a lovely time at Ketrel cottage, six adults and two children. The cottage was clean, the hot tub was available but was a bit too hot for the children. We were disappointed in the such late check in and early check out which cut our long weekend at the cottage short.

The most wonderful cottage, spotlessly clean, well equipped and set in the most jaw dropping country side. Our host Mrs Lloyd was delightful. We have the most amazing holiday memories, would throughly recommend Kestral cottage.

See above. We did wonder if normally (in non COVID times) there are a few books or other literature on shelves for reading (eg on the local area and attractions). That said, we did not really need them ourselves.

Wonderful stay. Owners especially Lucy were very friendly, who welcomed us to this beautiful working sheep farm and were very helpful in quickly addressing any needs we had.
