Castell Y Waun
A large traditional Welsh farmhouse with far reaching countryside views has plenty of features that include a hot tub seating all 8 guests and a wood burner. The perfect base to gather with friends and family to relax and unwind.
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 en suite 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.
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 Y 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.

We stayed with friends at Castell Y Waun for a week during the Easter holidays - 8 of us altogether. The property itself was fantastic for our 2 families; spacious but cosy, and really clean. The bedrooms were all decorated beautifully and the beds so comfortable and the hot tub fabulous! We arrived to be met by the owners who were very friendly and we found a lovely hamper with welcome goodies - a lovely touch!
The location of the property was super - so close to many beautiful castles, wonderful countryside and stunning beaches.
The large garden was something that attracted us to the property, for the children and dogs to run around in, however whilst the garden had new fencing it was not strictly enclosed as the dogs could escape via the gates backing onto the fields - so just a warning to those with dogs that are mischievous! Aside from that, our week there was perfect and we’d highly recommend it; we had a brilliant holiday!
It was a good place, we had a good time and the owner was very communicative and very helpful.
We had issues with wifi not working during our stay, looks like it was an BT issue (BT were called and attended but couldn't rectify the issue). Which did rob us off some quality time in the evenings.
If not everything was really good.
I would recommend this place.
Firstly this place is just so amazing, stunning inside, very clean, really good communication, planty of space for our dog, and much more good things I definitely recommend this place and planning already to come back soon.
A really wonderful property, which was immaculate and very homely! Laura is a lovely host, and is so approachable - she really goes out of her way to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Would definitely want to come back again, and highly recommend!
Highly recommend this property and booking company. The property is a great size for multigenerational holiday, 2 separate living rooms as well as a kitchen-breakfast room and separate dining room and 4 good size bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. It has mobility adaptations including walk in shower room and stairlift should you need it. It’s in a great location for exploring Carmarthen town centre and amenities and numerous beaches in the county and across the boarder into Pembrokeshire. The property itself was in great condition clearly renovated and modernised sympathetically with everything you could need including a hot tub. The owner was on hand and friendly but not intrusive and keen to resolve any issues. Wouldn’t hesitate to rebook.
The property’s owner Laura and her family have an extremely beautiful home. Laura as a host was polite and respectful and friendly. We used almost all the facilities and everything worked flawlessly.
We had a lovely stay, we were a group of 8 including a senior citizen & an infant.
All of us were comfortable.
We cooked dined, enjoyed & had a wonderful time, made some great memories and if at all we plan to stay in South Wales again, we know this is the place to stay.
Highlights - Hot tub, a Snooker pool table, darts, outdoor seating with squeaky clean interiors. Kitchen, Bathrooms and utility systems were all very convenient and we felt right at home.
Some decent local food options and close to the main road as well, lovely beautiful location and easy access to nearby towns and beaches.
I did spill some coffee on one of their carpets, did make sure to clean it & promptly left a note to her; she left us a note to say thank you and not to worry about the same.
We had a fantastic stay as a family of 7 + 1 dog. The house was absolutely spotless and everything was so well thought out to make our stay relaxing and comfortable. Laura was a brilliant host always on hand if we needed anything but never intrusive. The hot tub was a lovely addition and having a roof over it meant we could use it whatever the weather. We will definitely be visiting again.
