About The Tides

Nestled above Llansteffan village, The Tides is in a lovely location surrounded by nature. A great getaway holiday home ideal for families and groups of all ages.

  • Nature is truly in its element here, a birdwatcher's paradise, yet only a stroll from the village centre.

About The Area

Llansteffan

  • A ten minute stroll and you will arrive at the sands at Llansteffan, fantastic for sandcastles and beach combing.
  • Just down the hill to the village you will find the 'Inn at The Sticks', the local gastro pub, great food and a beer garden to enjoy too!
  • The Old Post Office close by serves great coffee and meals as well as playing host to a Welsh delicatessen.
Llansteffan Castle
  • Standing on a wooded and grassy headland overlooking the Tywi Estuary and cockle strewn sandy shore the substantial ruins of Llansteffan Castle make a great venue for picnics and fantasy play if you have any would be knights and princesses in your party.
Scotts Bay
  • 'Far from the madding crowd'. Walk half a mile south along the coast path from Llansteffan to the secret secluded sandy cove of Scotts Bay backed by low sea cliffs. A perfect sun trap but take care swimming is not advised during low tides. Dogs are welcome. Picnic tables are available above the beach.
St Anthony's Well
  • 90 yards behind the beach at Scotts Bay tucked away behind a door in a small courtyard is St Anthony's Well, a place of pilgrimage for hundreds of years because of the healing properties of its water.
