I had a relaxing 5 days at Trebentir, thank you Sarah. It is easy to find-you park your car in the free castle carpark and just by the bus stop is the entrance gate to a small courtyard and the door to the lean to.
I was given a key which meant I could come and go at all times. I stayed in the room overlooking the cafe opposite which opens at 10am. I had a delicious Halloumi and avocado salad supper there one evening. You could have a cooked breakfast here perhaps if you needed to but cereal and bread was enough for me.
Laugharne is a bit quirky and sometimes shops werent always open or opened late.
Trebentir ( known to the villagers I met as Sarah's place!) is an ideal base as it is in walking distance to the whole village- even Keepers Cottage at the top of the hill where I had a cream tea in the conservatory.
The villagers are friendly especiallly the owner of Choices and had all the ameneties I needed for a short stay- Spar supermarket, Post Office ( free cash withdrawals) Gift Shops, Church etc
A visit to the Dylan Thomas Boathouse down steps in the cliffside is really interesting with breathtaking views of the estuary and delicious food in the cafe- especially the Welsh Cawl soup. You can walk along the coast path by the castle if you can scramble a bit over rocks or you can use the easier route from the main road.
Its also a good base for further trips like Pendine Sands ( 10 mins away) and Tenby, Pembroke and Carmarthen all about half an hour away.
The B & B itself is clean , bright and contemporary. with a great view from the Velux window. I am 5ft 4 so the sloping eaves were no problem.
Breakfast is in a low cupboard with fresh bread, individual cereal boxes, and mini jam pots. There is a kettle to make tea and coffee and a toaster and butter and milk in a fridge. When I needed more supplies Sarah would give me them and did my washing up.
The only reason why I didnt give it an excellent overall rating was because I would have preferred a larger shelf to store the kettle, toaster and breakfast trays on- because I was using the table for my laptop.
