The downstairs bathroom with a separate toilet, has a bathroom with shower over.
Leave the kitchen and wander through the pretty split level garden with a small pond. The gardens are a terraced delight with many shrubs and plants and wonderful views of the valley from the top of the garden, the previous owner was a gold winner at the chelsea flower show 2011 with a garden titled ' postcard from south wales'. Some areas of the garden have steep steps leading to the very top level.

The Local Area
St Clears is the nearest town, with a good choice of coffee shops, a handful of pubs and restaurants. It is perfectly located to explore Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire.
Laugharne is a 10 minute drive, and is perhaps best known for its associations with Wales' most famous poet, Dylan Thomas. Laugharne is a small town sitting on the estuary of the Taf River and offers stunning estuary walks, including the famous Dylan Thomas Birthday Walk. The Boathouse, where Dylan and Caitlin lived with their children, is now a heritage centre. Overlooking the estuary are the dramatic ruins of a Norman Castle, a popular visitor attraction. Laugharne has a good choice of cafes and restaurants. There are also plenty of woodland walks and the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path starts nearby.
There are also a good choice of outdoor activities available in the area, ranging from horse riding, coasteering, to a variety of water sports, abseiling, orienteering, caving and gorge walking.
There are many beautiful rugged beaches in Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire, along with the more popular coastal resorts of Pendine, Saundersfoot and Tenby.
There is an abundance of interesting attractions locally, including Castles, historic houses and National Botanical Gardens to name a few.
If you are a "foodie" then there is a fantastic choice of restaurants within a 20 - 30 minute's drive ranging from Coast in Coppet Hall, Jabajak Vineyard which is 20 minutes drive, or Y Polyn, just 5 minutes from Carmarthen.
It’s the perfect place to get away from it all…
