St Clears is a charming town with a good choice of coffee shops, a handful of pubs and restaurants.

It is a small town perfectly located to explore Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire. It is 4 miles to Laugharne and 9 miles to Carmarthen.

Laugharne is a small town sitting on the estuary of the Taf River and offers stunning estuary walks, including the infamous Dylan Thomas Birthday Walk. There are also plenty of woodland walks and the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path starts nearby and there is easy access to the Brecon Beacons.

Carmarthen, Wales oldest town, is a market town with a large variety of independent shops and plenty of lovely eateries. One of Carmarthen’s most famous early residents was Merlin the Magician. The Welsh name for the town, “Caerfyrddin”, means Merlin’s Fort and many believe the town was named after King Arthurs wizard.

the perfect half term holiday break for me, my wife, our 13 year old and dog. Matt, the host, couldn't have been more responsive, or helpful. The property itself was idyllic, matched only by the breathtaking countryside. Scenic beach walks less than half an hour's drive away. A swimming pool and sauna less than half a minute's stroll away. We are now back in London and already want to return....

Large, clean and private indoor heated pool plus sauna. Very tranquil location overseeing the lake. There are not other guests as there is only one property for holiday makers so it is very private feeling just like a second home. There are everything needed in the house.
Occasional flies in the house and farm smell outside 😄 but no smell in the house.

We loved our stay at the Boathouse, which was set in a quiet and beautiful location and within easy reach of most major attractions that we wanted to see (less than 30-45 mins away for pretty much everything). We had the pool to ourselves every time we used it, and it was great to be able to access it basically any time we wanted to. We had one minor issue with the water pressure one day but the hosts were great and fixed it in short order, so no complaints from us. We would definitely stay again next time we go to South Wales - rare find indeed.

Really enjoyed staying at tranquil house by the lake. Very cosy and well maintained, it was a great place to unwind for few days. didn't use the pool but having the sauna available during the winter was nice. Communication from Jess was great and spoke to the owner on site who was very friendly also. The Boathouse would be even better in the summer to be able to sit out and watch ducks swim around.

Danni Stayed in Penuwch Boathouse 07.04.2023

I cannot praise this Boathouse enough! It was our first holiday with our 5 month old doggy, and our 11 year old. And it was exactly what we needed! Safe, secure, cosy and the cleanist place we've stayed at.

We didn't arrive until 11pm but no problem the house was waiting with keys inside and nice and warm with the heating on. I would say the sat nav took us up the road with a small sign to the farm with a long country off track road until we got there which threw us off a little.

The pre-arrival activity guide gave us everything we need and more! About the house and things to do around South/West Wales.

The swimming pool we used almost every day and was bigger than the pictures. Got some good lengths in and relaxed in the lovely sauna after. There was even a few toys to play with as a family. And it was all to ourselves!

We loved it so much we asked to stay an extra night. Which was easy to arrange. They communicated via text almost instantly and sorted it all out for us.

Great place to stay and would very highly recommend it - lots of little touches to make you feel at home and welcome you in. Very very quiet and peaceful. Lovely to take time out and a great place to explore Carmarthenshire. Remember this is a working farm so cattle wandering down the track behind the cottage is a lovely sight to see, maybe not so nice on the nose occasionally but it really didnt bother us.
