    We were visiting family in a nearby town so mainly used the property as a place to sleep. We did find the house to be very comfortable though having everything we needed. The bedrooms were a good size with very comfortable beds. Both the garden, the bath and the baby grand were very much appreciated. The beach and castle in Llansteffan is lovely - we've been once before and that is why we chose to stay in Llansteffan this time round. This time we also enjoyed Pendine beach and Laugharne with the castle and Dylan Thomas' boathouse as well as the towns of Emlyn and Kidwelly.

    Lovely spacious property. The baby grand piano was one of the reasons we chose the house. Very well equipped. Lovely comfy beds.
    Tips: Local towns such as Tenby gets very busy in the summer months and parking close to the town centre can be a problem. Folly Farm is a great day out, even with teenagers (because of the vintage fun fair and zoo) but again it gets very busy so go as early in the day as possible.

    Great property, very spacious and full of character. Every thing you needed, very nice garden. Our son made great use of the baby grand piano. Loads of local walks. The coastal paths. The Castle pub in Llansteffen was very friendly, had a good atmosphere and served good food.

    We all felt at home....very comfortable...loved the piano (a reason we booked the property), great garden.
    Tips: Get a map of local walks.....stock up on food in Carmarthan because there are no other shops.

    It was a family holiday in February, to my home region which I live far away from. I wanted my young grandsons to meet their relatives and to experience Welsh village life by the sea and a castle. The local fish and chips and café are very good. and go for lots of walks
