Enter this traditional Welsh stone farmhouse through the front door; to the left you will find the informal living room with comfortable sofas and a warming wood burner, perfect for sitting and relaxing on those cold winter evenings. To your right, you will find the formal dining area, with a fireplace, and an array of serving dishes, and even a retro punch bowl, the perfect place to enjoy a celebratory home-cooked meal together. Leading off the same corridor you will find the first of two staircases, which benefits from a stairlift to support members of the family that cannot easily use the stairs to head to bed. There is also a ground floor wet room with WC, for people with restricted mobility. This wet room includes a shower seat and assistive support rails for the WC and shower area. Completing the left side of this marvellous property is the vast farmhouse kitchen which has a range style oven, a large and small fridge, dishwasher and a lovely dining area to have some breakfast overlooking the rear garden. As you continue to explore the ground floor, just off the kitchen, you will find the second living room with sofas and a Smart TV. Gather with all your family and play a game of charades after your evening meal. The formal living room is located at the front of the farmhouse, with countryside views, just off the second hallway where the main staircase is located. There is also a handy utility room for throwing down your beach clothes or muddy boots, and leads out to the hot tub area. The utility also hosts a washing machine for your convenience.

Heading upstairs, you will find four beautiful bedrooms which have been tastefully decorated, each with their own personality, and furnished to a high quality to ensure a restful night sleep. The first bedroom is a king size bedroom which has a solid oak bed and views over the huge rear lawn, the second bedroom is a spacious twin bedroom with full length fitted wardrobes. The third bedroom is a cosy double with views to the front of the property and surrounding countryside. The final bedroom has a super king zip-and-link bed which can be made up as a twin upon request, this bedroom also benefits from an ensuite shower room.

Externally, the property benefits from a small private patio area with undercover hot tub which can be enjoyed in all weathers, and towels are provided. There is a very large lawned garden for children to play, and pets to let off some steam. There is ample parking for up to 4 cars to the front of the property.

Local Area

Located in Bancyfelin, this property is the perfect place to explore Carmarthenshire and sits on the border of Pembrokeshire. Bancyfelin is a small village, there is an excellent pub serving home made food within a 10 minute walk, a post office and a local farm milk hut serving fresh farm milk and delicious milkshakes. Bancyfelin is also home to Derllys Golf Club. Or you can choose to drive 5 minutes to the small town of St Clears with various convenience stores and shops, 2 butchers, 3 pubs and restaurants and takeaways. Less than a 10 minute drive to the large market town of Carmarthen where there are lovely restaurants and cafes, independent shops, several large supermarkets, bowling and a cinema. Visit the town's farmers market and buy some local fresh produce. Beautiful Llansteffan, with its castle, sandy beach and amenities is just a short drive away. For those that love the outdoors and nature, the National Botanic Garden of Wales is close by alongside country parks and walking trails.

Pembrokeshire Coastline is a short drive, and the popular coastal town of Tenby is a 25 minute drive. For the younger generation Castell Waun is a 20 minutes drive away from the likes of Folly Farm, Oakwood, Manor House Wildlife Park, Heatherton World of Activities and Dinosaur Park to name a few.
