Cwm Ban Fawr Country House B & B 5 Star
Welcome to our family owned and lovingly restored 18th Century former shooting lodge. We are situated within a 300-acre hill farm, in a stunning area of West Wales. We look out on spectacular country views to the Brecon Beacons National Park. The house with its high ceilings and plasterwork details is elegantly furnished to a high standard. We have recently been awarded 5 star grading by Visit Wales (Welsh Tourist Board)
The bedroom is newly decorated (as is the rest of the house) with a king size bed and en suite shower room. Tea/coffee making facilities are in the room and a hair dryer is provided. Your bedroom window looks out onto rolling hills and farmland, and you may be fortunate to see Red Kites soaring a few feet away from the house.
A private sitting room is available for your use, equipped with a TV, DVD player, music centre and wireless Internet connection.
A traditional cooked Welsh Breakfast is served in the dining room around our Victorian dining table.
Relax in peace, quality and cleanliness.
The market town of Llandelio, which is about 5 miles away, is the reputed 'slow food' capital of Wales, a traditional pretty market town with narrow streets and historic buildings, a good selection of individually owned boutiques eateries, crafts and antique shops.
Carmarthen which is about 10 miles away is thought to be the oldest town in Wales and the birthplace of Merlin of Arthurian legend, has a large market specializing in selling fresh local produce and the usual supermarkets. Many of its smaller shops specialize in quality goods. The town has excellent sports facilities and two golf clubs.
There are a host of nearby pubs and restaurants serving good locally produced food. Carmarthen and Llandeilo also have antique centres and nearby Narbeth is an antique hunters dream
Walking, golfing, mountain biking, horse riding, quad biking, sea and river fishing bird and wildlife watching to name but a few, and not to forget - relaxing.
We are close the Gardens of Aberglasney and The National Botanic Gardens.
There are numerous castles to visit within a short distance including Carreg Cennon, Dryslwyn, Dinefwr Park and castle and Newton House (National Trust), Llanstephan and Talley Abbey.
We are located within easy driving distance of the spectacular heritage coastline and beaches of Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire, which even in summer are little populated.
The mountains can be seen from the house and offer spectacular walking and scenic drives. About 45 minutes away is the Lynn Brianne Dam, with its pine forests and lakes. The Brecon Beacons are about an hour away where you will also find the magnificent Welsh Show Caves.
There are three award winning caves including the magnificent Cathedral Cave with its lake and two cascading waterfalls. Within the complex you can enjoy one of the world's largest dinosaur parks and an Iron Age Farm, which also houses shire horses among its other animals.
There is also a mountain railway, driven by steam locomotives, which weaves its way across the mountains and valleys. Other railway journeys are also on offer and all give the opportunity to enjoy the dramatic scenery.
The Roman Goldmines - These are owned by the National Trust and are well worth a visit. Here you can try your hand at gold panning, enjoy a guided tour of the mines or treat yourself to a piece of beautiful Welsh Gold jewellery. Distance from the house is approximately 15 miles.
If you are looking for tranquil surroundings off the beaten track with a warm welcome and hearty breakfast, this is the place for you.
