After a busy day sightseeing, retire to the hot tub, relax with a glass of wine and enjoy the sunset, views and the ever-changing River Towy.

Bronyn Cottage has been finished to a very good standard, and enjoys unobstructed estuary views from the private, elevated terrace. French doors lead onto the terrace from the living room, complete with a focal wood burner for cosy nights in. Enjoy amazing estuary views and a babbling brook which meanders past the cottage - what more could you need? Both bedrooms offer sea views and the master has been lovingly furnished, complete with a sleigh bed, vaulted ceilings, beams and an en-suite bathroom.

A 20-minute stroll and you are in the square of the seaside village of Ferryside, which was originally a ferry crossing on the Pilgrim’s Road to Llansteffan. Ferryside was once the heart of the Welsh cockling industry and still has a good number of locals harvesting these tasty shellfish. The village boasts a pub with local ales and live music, a renowned fish and chip restaurant specialising in locally sourced, home cooked food, a small general store, Post Office, railway station and a fantastic beach to explore with your family, build sandcastles, explore rock pools or relax and take in the views.

A couple of miles over the hill, the ancient town of Kidwelly is really worth a visit. Here you will find the historic Kidwelly Castle, teaming with history and one of the finest preserved Norman castles in Wales. Travelling east along the coastline, Pembrey Country Park boasts 500 acres to discover and ramble, with its extensive woodland, dry ski slope, toboggan run and miles of golden sandy beach, ideal for all ages.
