Standing detached, Ty Hugh (Hugh’s House) is a traditional 18th-century Welsh farmhouse, situated in the unspoilt Towy Valley. The cottage, including the incorporation of the old dairy, has been lovingly restored to provide every modern comfort, but retains much of its period character, with exposed stone walls, beams, antique furniture and elegant finishing touches. Lovers of nature will appreciate the fact that the property is bordered by a river where herons and otters are often seen. There are also 6 acres of natural grounds to enjoy, and from here you have a view of Paxton’s Tower; a neo-gothic folly erected in honour of Lord Nelson. The cottage offers easy access to the A40 and all the fascinating places of interest nearby, such as The National Botanic Gardens of Wales, Aberglasney House and Gardens, Dinefwr Castle, Dolaucothi Gold Mines and Dryslwyn Castle to name but a few. The nearby picturesque market town of Llandeilo, adjacent to the westernmost point of the Brecon Beacons, is considered the ‘jewel in the crown’ of the Towy Valley, and offers an array of individual shops and restaurants. Wales’ oldest town, Carmarthen, is 15 minutes away by car. Here you can visit the regular farmers’ market and wander around the narrow streets. Just a few miles from Carmarthen you can take a ride on the Gwili Steam Railway. Carmarthenshire has some of the most unspoilt golden sandy beaches in Europe, including Cefn Sidan and Laugharne, which was one of Dylan Thomas’s places of inspiration, and where his writing shed is open to the public. Carmarthenshire has it all, castles, gardens, beaches, unique towns, varied landscapes and an overwhelming choice of activities. After a busy day exploring you can come home and relax in comfort. Shop ½ mile, pub 2 miles.
