    Set along a private lane, this detached cottage dates back to the late 1800s and has enviable views over Llansteffan and out across Carmarthen Bay. Castle Hill Cottage offers spacious and characterful accommodation which has been lovingly furnished throughout to provide a very good standard of finish. Enjoy a glass of wine in front of the wood burner, which acts as a focal point during a cosy evening in, or utilise the spacious galley-style kitchen to prepare a special meal before serving up in the separate formal dining room, which retains the original fireplace. All bedrooms are spacious, and have been thoughtfully presented with a high level of comfort in mind.
    Next door you can step back in time and visit the ruined castle dating back to the early 12th century, along with the Iron Age earthworks still visible to this day, and which once controlled an important river crossing of the Towy. Enjoy an early morning walk to discover this castle and its epic views overlooking the sand flats and the mouth of th River Towy.
    Castle Hill Cottage is a 5-minute walk from Llansteffan where you can stroll on the golden sandy beach, build sandcastles with your children or search rock pools for crabs and limpets. Within the village is a plethora of shops, restaurants and cafés, where you can discover local produce, home cooked food and local ale all in walking distance. In the summer season you can take a boat trip from the beach over to the very quaint hamlet of Ferryside on the opposite coastline, which once was a fishing village.
    A highly recommended morning stroll is travelling north from the cottage along the track to Scotts Bay, a truly wonderful and sublime sandy beach with amazing views across the bay towards the Gower Peninsula. Due to its location, it is normally nice and quiet - the ideal place to escape to! Keep an eye out for St Anthony’s Well, which was a place of pilgrimage for hundreds of years, hidden away just off the beach. Locally there is sailing, water sports, golf, fishing and riding available which is sure to entertain the most active of families. Oakwood, Wales’ largest theme park, and Folly Farm Zoo are within a 45-minute drive. Beach 500 yards. Shop, pub and restaurant 500 yards.

    "Lovely well equipped cottage in good location for coastal exploration and relaxing walks. Furnished to high standard. Had a great week here and would recommend!"
    Rynn ‐ 20 Sep 2019
    "A lovely comfortable cottage in a great spot. Castle Hill Cottage was very well equipped for our party of three adults and two young children. With a stunning beach, and a fab castle to explore within a few minutes walk and loads of shops in nearby Carmarthen we couldn't have asked for more. If you are looking for a lovely quiet spot with local facilities within walking distance this is for you. The two children (aged 9 and 5) loved the beach with its seemingly endless sands, and with the attractions of Tenby, St Davids, Pembrey Country Park further afield Castle Hill Cottage is well situated to explore this beautiful area of Wales.John and Gabi were brilliant and Castle Hill Cottage is highly recommended."

    "Castle Hill Cottage is a beautiful, comfortable and well equipped holiday cottage. It is a very tasteful property, with lovely comfy beds and a high level of cleanliness. The beach is a few minutes walk away, it is next to the castle with beautiful views and also only a short drive from other beaches and pretty villages. We would definitely stay again!!"
