2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Brechfa, Carmarthenshire, Wales
Dating from the 18th century, Bryn Marlais cottage is now a delightful self contained annexe of the owners' home set in 9 acres of grounds, which visitors to the cottage are welcome to use. The secluded garden has a variety of mature shrubs with several seating areas and a bird feeding station which is popular with all the usual garden birds and the rarer woodpecker, nuthatches and goldfinches which delight us with their visits. Buzzards and red kites can be seen soaring high in the valley and around the cottage. You may even catch a glimpse of a goshawk, arch enemy of the local chickens!
The cottage is set on the edge of Brechfa Forest and is perfect for outdoor pursuits including walking, cycling, riding, bird-watching, and fishing. Bryn Marlais provides a peaceful rural retreat for couples and families.

This was a lovely well equipped cottage with really welcoming hosts. It was in a beautiful location very close to bike trails and great walks. We will definitely come again.

About the neighbourhood
Our own little corner of Wales is delightful. Set at the southern reaches of the Cambrian Mountains, Brechfa Forest is perfect for outdoor pursuits including walking, cycling, riding, bird-watching, fishing, and sight-seeing. It is one of the largest areas of Forestry Commission land in Wales and includes extensive access tracks for visitors to enjoy on foot or bike, the closest being within half a mile of Bryn Marlais. So, lots to explore and plenty of room - it is a real get-away-from-it-all location.

The Community Stores in Brechfa village is an Aladdin's cave selling a wide range of items of use to the holiday maker. Apart from a good range of groceries they stock batteries, plasters, maps, superglue and even wellingtons! Drop in and have a chat with one of the volunteers servin...
