An elegantly refurbished family-friendly cottage in walking country.

Quay Cottage

Llandeilo SA19 6BL 01865 594 349

We say

This charming cottage is located in one of the oldest streets in fascinating Llandeilo, the perfect spot for a walking holiday. This is castle country, and a lovely walk from the cottage takes you to Dinefwr Castle, where the views from the hilltop are spectacular. If you fancy venturing a little further, Carreg Cennen is another beautiful castle in the village of Trap, 5 miles away; and Llandeilois the perfect base from which to discover the breathtaking rural and coastal scenery of Carmarthenshire: the Brecon Beacons National ParkThe Gower Peninsula and Mumbles are all not far away by car. 

As for the cottage, owner Lisa Valentine is a celebrated interior designer so you would expect the cottage to be superbly decorated. But it still retains its period charm and continues to preserve delightful features such as exposed stone, original beams and wooden floors. The cottage has two double bedrooms (one en-suite) and a bunk room for children, so it’s ideal for families, while outside an enclosed garden is perfect for al fresco dining with a large outdoor table and BBQ. 

Quay Cottage is just a short stroll from Llandeilo’s many shops, restaurants and a pubs. Foodies can sample fabulous concoctions at the Heavenly Chocolate Emporium, amazing fresh bread at Taylor’s Bakery and a great range of cheeses at the Ginhaus Deli, not to mention a very impressive selection of gins (I guess the name was a giveaway). All in all, a perfect place from which to explore this beautiful part of Wales. Don’t forget your walking shoes!
