This simply stunning, detached residence, sits in a very secluded spot at the end of a quiet lane. Surrounded by mature shrubs, trees and fields beyond, this is the spot to get away from it all or enjoy a special family occasion. It is on the periphery of the hamlet of Capel Isaac, yet this has excellent access being only three miles from the A40. The delightful market town of Llandeilo is just four miles away, offering a host of independent shops and eateries. Walks galore and the nearby National Botanic Garden of Wales is well worth the visit if you can tear yourself away from this wonderful home. (Please check admittance for the various attractions).
The river Dulais runs alongside the property. It is a tributary of the River Towy, the longest river in Wales, which flows into the sea at Carmarthen Bay. During the summer months it can be reduced to a large stream and fun to paddle in. In the rainy winter months, it can turn into a torrent tumbling over the slate bed rock. In the Spring, the Mallards return to this stretch of the river for the breeding season, and you may see Mother Mallard with her ducklings streaming along in tight formation in her wake. A frequent visitor is a heron who stands near the weir patiently waiting for an unsuspecting fish. In the morning wild geese can be seen flying over Pistyll Bach from lake to lake and returning late afternoon.
