About Penmorfa

This stunning and spacious family-friendly property is situated in the heart of West Wales, along the border with coastal Pembrokeshire and the rolling countryside of Carmarthenshire. The perfect property for a large family, this light and airy property has all the amenities you need for a holiday away from home while offering ample space and ample opportunities to explore the best this ancient area of Wales has to offer!

With its accessible setting, Penmorfa has a large outdoor space for ease of access and safety for children who want to play outside. The semi-detached house sits alongside Penmorfa Fach, a 2-bedroom bungalow which is also available to rent on our portfolio, and could be suitable for older members of your party that prefer the extra level of privacy.

Penmorfa sleeps 8 people within 4 generously sized bedrooms, all on the 1st floor with views across the bucolic countryside. With 2  double bedrooms with king-size beds and master bedroom with a super-king-size bed, the twin room and with 2 shower rooms, with views across the bucolic countryside.

The owners have decorated this property immaculately, and the lounge is both spacious and cosy, with accents of mustard drawing in warmth in the evening, and large windows providing plenty of sunlight during daylight hours. With more than enough comfortable seating, you can choose to watch a movie on the large TV, or focus on the flickering flames lighting up the feature wall behind the wood-burning stove.

The kitchen is a modern twist on the traditional farmhouse room; the grey tiles give the room a clean and contemporary feel whilst the warm wooden cabinetry makes this an inviting space to cook, have a glass of wine, and plan the next day's adventures.

The bold colours of the dining room make it an enjoyable space, and somewhere to share meals over tales of the day's unique experiences.

      St Clears & Food Shopping

      Just 1 mile down the road takes you into the village of St Clears, once a thriving port on the River Taf, where there is a lovely riverside walk to enjoy. Local food shops include Neil's, an excellent fish and chip take away and two prize-winning butchers, Philip Hughes (Pie Makers of Distinction) and Eynons (Britain's Best Butchers & Food Hall 2007).

      There are four pubs in and around St Clears, all easily accessible from this cottage, including the Savoy Country Inn next door, The White Lion, Corvus Inn, and Santa Clara Inn.

      There are a few great choices for eating out too including The Food Tree, Mols Bistro, Bombay Spice, and two fish and chip shops.

      Laugharne and Eating Out

      Browns Hotel - famous as Dylan Thomas's preferred drinking establishment, open for lunch or supper.

      Cors Restaurant - awarded Good Food Guide & AA Restaurant Guide double Rosette. A romantic restaurant and garden with unpretentious, well-executed cooking.

      The Corran Resort & Spa - pampering spa treatments and a restaurant offering well-prepared, thoughtfully cooked cuisine with a hint of Welsh character.

      Dylan Thomas Boathouse and Writing Shed

      The Boathouse has a long history associated with the water trade of the estuary but became famous as the home of Dylan Thomas from 1949 to 1953 - the last four years of his life. He worked in the boatshed, writing some of his most famous works there looking out over the water, and the influence of this 'heron priested shore' is evident in his work.

      The Boathouse is now open as a museum - check the opening times on the website

      Laugharne Castle

      Laugharne Castle is a ruin that dominates the town's riverside. First built in the 11th C as an earth and timber structure, it was built in stone in the 13th & 14th centuries, turned into a Tudor mansion in the 16th and now for over 20 years has undergone painstaking archaeological investigation and restoration.

      The magnificent Georgian and Victorian gardens overlooking the river Taf were an inspiration to the two great modern writers, Richard Hughes and Dylan Thomas - in fact, there is a turret room in the castle grounds which overlooks the estuary, laid out as Dylan Thomas used it.

      Go Wild Adventures, St Clears

      Experience a thrilling day out of canoeing, kayaking, archery, initiative games, coasteering, orienteering, or horse riding. There are so many adventures to choose from. Booking is essential.

      West Wales Centre for Arts & Crafts

      The West Wales Centre for Arts and Crafts is also in St Clears where in addition, there are several pubs known for good food including The Black Lion, Santa Clara Inn, and The Butchers Arms, often frequented by Dylan Thomas and his wife Caitlin.

      Ffos Las Racecourse

      Ffos Las, the first turf racecourse to open in the UK in more than 80 years, is a 25-minute drive away.

      Carmarthen County & Market Town

      Visit the ancient market and county town of Carmarthen (13 miles away), which with its Roman foundations is said to be the oldest town in Wales. Bustling with individual shops, there is a good range of local amenities including supermarkets, filling stations, chemist, doctor, vet, bank, post office, and chain stores.

      There is also an indoor market where you can buy delicious local produce, browse second-hand books, antiques, and more. Carmarthen's new shopping centre claims the West End has come to West Wales.

      Pendine Sands, Ginst Point, and beach riding

      Pendine Sands is a 7-mile stretch of beach running from Gilman Point to Laugharne Sands, occasionally used for motor racing and land speed record events.

      However, a great variety of birds can be seen on a sandpit at Ginst Point; the extensive scrub attracts finches and other passerines and the inland areas, large flocks of golden plover, and lapwings. (Ginst Point is used for weapons testing and so access is limited but usually available at weekends - phone ahead to avoid disappointment 01944 452310).

      A favourite pastime on Pendine is beach horse riding - try the award-winning Marros Riding Centre.

      Caldey Island Boats, Tenby

      Just over 20 miles to the west is Tenby - a picturesque harbour town with Norman town walls surrounding cobbled streets, a bustling centre, and wonderful beaches to the north, west, and south of the town.

      Take a trip from here to Caldey Island, home to Cistercian monks, and enjoy the island beaches, countryside & produce.

      The National Botanic Garden of Wales and Aberglasney

      Heading inland, just over 20 miles away is the beautiful National Botanic Garden of Wales near Llanarthne. This is a 568-acre parkland containing, both historic and futuristic buildings, horticultural displays, flower meadows, lakes and walks, shops, and cafes.

      Just a little further away near Llandeilo is the medieval house and gardens at Aberglasney. This beautiful site has a rich history that has been preserved for the public by the Aberglasney Restoration Trust and, featured on several television programmes, has been open to the public since 1999.
