Situated in an uplifting landscape with panoramic views over the Tywi Valley and beyond to the dramatic Black Mountain. Relax in our Georgian stone walled farmhouse over a sumptuous breakfast (featured three years running in Eat Well in Wales). Best Farmhouse Breakfast Award and AA Breakfast Award that relies on home baking and local traditional products. Restore your spirits in the mature and tranquil gardens that are carpeted by snowdrops, wild daffodils and bluebells in the spring.Your hosts, Colin and Jacquie Rouse, have lived at Allt y Golau since 1976 and they are active members of the local community. They both have a love and deep knowledge of the heritage and folklore of the Tywi valley which they enjoy sharing with their guests."Jacquie's breakfasts are like a Welsh morning meze. Cereals, neatly labelled preserves, home-made bread and freshly squeezed fruit juices occupy one end of a splendid elm dining table. Tea and coffee appear as often as required. The perfectly poached or rich yellow scrambled eggs, local sausages, bacon, Welsh potato cakes and toast, croissants, rolls, marbles of butter and yet more preserves. It could be very easy to sit here all day, perusing the papers, setting the world to rights and ignoring the world outside." (Eat Well in Wales 2001)A keen gardener, Jacquie has created a mature garden that blends into the hillside and provides many vistas of a stunning landscape.Restore your spirits, stroll around and enjoy the mature and tranquil garden with its views of Grongar Hill (associated with the poet John Dyer and Aberglasney Gardens) and Llyn y Fan Fach (famous for the legend of the Lady of the Lake and the Physicians of Myddfai).In spring the orchards are carpeted in snowdrops (Eirlys), daffodils (Lent Lily or Blodyn mis Mawrth), the Tenby daffodil (Narcissus obvallaris) and bluebells (Cychau'r Glas). Enjoy the company of our Brecon Buff geese, Welsh Harlequin ducks, free-range hens and (during the autumn and winter) our free range Norfolk Bronze turkeys.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I enjoyed an utterly delightful four-night stay at this comfortable and gracious B&B in west Wales. Clean and well-appointed room, a very nice bathroom, and an incredibly peaceful and relaxing location — just what I needed! Breakfasts were delicious and meticulously prepared every morning, with lots of home-made elements to make it extra-special. Colin and Jacquie were gracious and engaging hosts — smart and interesting conversationalists with whom it was a joy to be around. Highly recommended! Thanks Jacquie and Colin — I'll be back next year! -Pawlie.

When we think about the best place we stayed in Wales, we come back to Allt. We loved it! Jacquie and Colin were wonderful hosts for the four days we were there. They were helpful with suggestions for eating dinner nearby. They were so fun to talk to about various things. The farmhouse is large and very interesting. The process of its renovation is in a notebook in the upstairs lounge. The lounge was a great space, especially on the rainy day we had and in the evening. Lots of books and resources on the area. Our room was comfortable and quiet. The grounds are interesting with the geese, ducks, chickens and turkeys. The gardens were turning into fall, but lovely. Breakfast was a delight, so many choices. The soda bread was the best. Wonderful!

Having stayed here two years ago (2016) we were anxious to return to this absolutely lovely and well run B&B. Colin and Jacquie are wonderful hosts. It is so nice to get away from the hustle and bustle and to relax in such wonderful atmosphere. Just love sitting on one of the outside benches, soaking up the gorgeous valley views. Rooms are very clean, comfortable and quiet. There is also a lovely and spacious upstairs lounge. Breakfast, prepared to order by Jacquie, and served by Colin, is gourmet. 5 stars to Colin, Jacquie and Allt y Golau Farmhouse.

Finding Allt Y Golau was like finding treasure. Colin and Jacquie are welcoming hosts who immediately made us feel very comfortable. The old farmhouse is beautiful and has been renovated designed and furnished really carefully. Our two rooms were attractive and looked after. Comfortable beds, exceptionally comfortable pillows, fresh-looking bedrooms and bathrooms. The bathrooms are more spacious than some 4-star places I've stayed at, and definitely more thoughtfully planned (see some of my other posts on the subject of hooks and mirrors). Allt Y Golau had towel rails within reach of the shower cubicle and lots of space for putting my own stuff. My mother loved that each bathroom had a chair. I loved the little bowl on the dressing table to keep rings etc. safe, and my sister loved the one with the cotton-wool. The fact that next to the tea-and-coffee-and-kettle etc. was a little scissors to open the sachets with tells you how much thought has gone into making guests comfortable. Breakfast around the big old table was like eating at home, but with hotel choice. Jacquie's own homemade bread and jams and marmalade, and eggs from their own hens were special. The Wi-Fi was not good, but in the evening we were able to keep up with the football on TV in the comfortable guest sitting room. When I booked Jacquie offered to make a dinner reservation at the Plough Inn in the village, which was essential as on a Saturday night they were full. Good meal and huge, but that's a different review. The area is very beautiful, lots of rolling hills and beautiful views from the terrace on the guesthouse, and driving to and from it. We were able to drive to the Pembrokeshire coast (both south and west) within less than an hour, and the Brecon Beacons National Park is even closer.

We stayed here for two nights, occupying the two ground floor rooms (Poppy and Cornflower). The rooms are well equipped and cosy, and the upstairs lounge is a lovely place to while away the evening. Jacquie and Colin are consummate hosts, helpfully available but not intrusive. Jacquie prepares (and Colin serves) a great cooked breakfast with eggs from their own free range hens, but there are lots of other temptations (baked? peaches, lovely local honey and breads). The B&B is an old farmhouse with lots of character and we enjoyed the company of the hens, turkeys and geese wandering around the garden. It is beautifully quiet, on the edge of a small village yet only a few miles away from the A40. Lots to see and do locally (including many impressive castles) and a good choice of places to eat out. Recommended - it's certainly on our return list.

This is a excellent B&B, with lots of charm, located in a quiet rural village just a short drive outside of Carmarthen, Wales. An ideal location for exploring Western Wales. The hosts, Jacqui and Colin, are very friendly and accommodating. They have lovingly restored this old farmhouse, while maintaining it's original character. The farmhouse is set back from the road and offers off street parking. The local pub, with friendly staff and good food and drink, is just a 2 minute drive, or 10 minute walk, down the road. Breakfast is not just hearty, it's gourmet ! We stayed 3 nights and are already considering a return visit next year.

From reading the Allt y Golau Farmhouse website you surmise that a lot of thought and effort goes into making guests feel welcome; you will not be disappointed. Colin and Jacquie deserve their many hospitality awards. Their legendary breakfasts are based on local produce, there is masses of local information in the guests' lounge, and the three bedrooms comfortable and well equipped.

This farmhouse is second to none. The minute you walk though the door you are made to feel at home.Colin and Jacquie are the perfect hosts, nothing is too much trouble but they do not hover. The rooms you would not find better is. 1st class hotel. Every thing has been thought of, down to needle thread etc. The breakfasts have to be seen to be believed. Home made bread,rolls,preserves and fresh fruit beautifully sliced ready to eat, not to mention the cooked breakfast if you can eat it. Excellent

We enjoyed our stay at the Allty Golau B&B when we were in Wales recently for a short golfing holiday. Very pleasant bedrooms plus a lounge for the use of the guests, and an excellent fresh breakfast to start the day - fresh poached eggs from the free range hens on the farm are definitely recommended! A little bit off the main routes, but in a quiet, country area and worth the slight detour. There is a good pub not too far away, and a very enjoyable restaurant at Y Polyn about 3 miles away make it overall a great B&B to stay in if you are in or around the Carmarthen area. I agree with the previous comment that access to the drive entrance is a bit tricky, and it's best to go along the road a few meters, turn around and approach from the North - see the B&B's website for directions. We found the WiFi was a bit hit and miss but this didn't bother us too much as we were only staying for 3 nights.
