Description

Uncover the delights of this stunning Grade II listed property, teeming with history and character, and the discrete owner living next door. The Coach House at Stable Cottage is a delightful, 16th-century former coach house, and was formerly part of the Derwydd Mansion, where it was a vital part of the day to day life at the mansion. The mansion was first appearing in history books as far back as 1485, and was owned by Tudor Knight, Sir Rhys ap Thomas, and Derwydd was said to have sheltered Henry Tudor on his way to Bosworth. This semi-detached property is a short walk to the hamlet of Derwydd and less than a 10-minute drive to the lovely market town of Llandeilo, set in the rolling countryside of Carmarthenshire.
The Coach House at Stable Cottage has been meticulously crafted back to its former glory with exposed stone work and beams. This spacious cottage really does offer a brilliant standard throughout and has been very well furnished, with a sympathetic décor that keeps with the original building. In an evening, you can cook that special meal in the kitchen and enjoy formal dining in the open plan living/dining room. In a morning, guests can watch the sunrise from the private patio and enjoy a fresh coffee.
A plethora of local walks are available, and are perfect for exploring the countryside from the doorstep. Locally, a trip to one of the many National Trust sites is a must; Dinefwr is a National Nature Reserve, with an historic house along with an 18th-century landscape park, which encloses a medieval deer park and is really worth exploring. For a trip back in time, try Dinefwr Castle, which embraces picture-postcard views over the Tywi Valley, and here you can learn about the links to Princes of Deheubarth. For a morning out, try the many craft, antique and boutique shops of Llandeilo, or a short drive away enjoy the Brecon Beacons. Beach 23 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.
