    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
    Blaencwm Lodge is a magical, detached single-storey property originating in the 17th century, sitting in its private, south-facing garden bordered by a stream. Its cosy sitting room, and one bedroom are original, exposed-beamed and traditional. Free logs for the woodburner are available all year round. The airy dining and kitchen room is recently-built and attractive, and its double-glazed, oak-framed windows offer big skies and extensive scenic views, especially to the west and its sunsets. The night skies - for star watching - are acknowledged authoritatively as world-class

    Blaencwm is also something of a wildlife paradise. This one-time only toehold of the red kite also has a variety of other rarer bird sightings, including goshawks, pied flycatchers, crossbills and others. The gu...

    How to get there
    Railway: Llangadog: 5.0 km
    Blaencwm Lodge is 2.6 miles from Llangadog, which is situated off the A40 between Llandeilo and Llandovery.
    Myddfai is a similar distance in the opposite direction. There is a train station at Llangadog, and a taxi service based in the village.

    Myddfai is the centre of the 'Physicians of Myddfai' story and, up the mountain from it is Llyn-y-Fan Fach - the lonely lake of the 'Lady of the Lake' legend

    The location is roughly equidistant from both Gower and Cardiganshire coasts. The b route route to Newquay, on the Cardiganshire coast is a delight, as is the b road route to charming Llansteffan on the very nearest (Carmarthenshire) coast.

We spent the most fantastic, peaceful week in this delightful cottage. There was a lovely welcome note, and milk, coffee, tea and biscuits waiting for us on our arrival. The accommodation was superb - the bed was so comfy it was a shame to get up in the morning! We had superb weather so were able to enjoy all the... more

Blaencwm Lodge is perfect for couples wanting to get away from it all but within a few minutes drive of a small village with a pubs/restaurants. The cottage has a comfy bed, cosy lounge with wood fire, large bathroom and a great kitchen/dining room with all the necessities. But for us the best feature was the garden with several seating... more

Management response:

Peaceful location with great views. Very well equipped. Good shops and pubs nearby in Llangadog and Llandovery. Ideal countryside for walking and cycling (if you don't mind the odd hill or two). The Heart of Wales railway is a great way to arrive. more

Management response:

It is wonderful that guests are making use of the local railway which wends its way dreamily from Shrewsbury to Swansea, stopping conveniently at Llangadog station, only 3 miles from the cottage. more
