West Wales Cottages

Welcome to Parc y Llong, just a few minutes drive along the country lanes from Britain’s fabulous new racecourse, Ffos Las. Parc y Llong Cottages are delightful 17th Century former canal worker’s cottages that nestle in idyllic rolling countryside with many natural meadows and woodland, home to wildlife and many wild flowers. The charming grounds are bordered by the River Gwendraeth.

Kidwelly is a coastal town full of legend and myth set on the estuary with its craggy coves and picturesque scenery. At its heart a Medieval Castle built in 1106 sits on the River Gwendraeth. There are local shops, garages and good pubs serving tasty food. We are on the doorstep to Pembrey Country Park with its vast ‘Cefn Sidan’ beach sweeping round to 500 acres of beautiful parkland enclosing family attractions and visitor centre. Follow the tide in on the beach and collect delicious cockles for supper…….mmmmm

Pembrey is also home to the National Motorsport Centre of Wales. One may join the Millennium Coastal Walk from here which has a 22km traffic-free coastal/cycleway and overlooks the spectacular Gower Peninsula and passes through the transformed harbour of Burry Port. Then on to Llanelli, one of the most famous rugby towns is home to the passionately-supported team The Scarlets.

So although of a rural location, the cottages are within easy reach of the excellent beaches on the Carmarthenshire coastline and the town of Kidwelly is ideally situated for touring the Pembrokeshire National Park, the Gower Peninsula & the Brecon Beacons.

The cottages boast many original features having oak beamed ceilings, Georgian style windows and inglenook fireplaces with wood burning stoves.

Jay Cottage has three bedrooms and will sleep up to six. Little Owl Cottage and Wren Cottage each have two bedrooms and sleeps 4/5. We have a Jacuzzi hottub available for guest use (£20 for short breaks, £25 per week up to 4 persons).

Well behaved dogs with responsible owners are welcome, see our terms.

The cottages can be booked together to sleep up to 14-16 people. GCH, log fire starter baskets, bed linen and bath towels and kitchen essentials are all included within the price.

Indulge with a massage in our jacuzzi hottub. Stroll through the lovely gardens ……or have a kick around in the adjoining paddocks. Kids have a safe play area with swings, slide, sea-saw and toys and they can have fun feeding the chickens!
