The space

A wonderful retreat all year round, Crychan Forest is a canvas of colour from the native oak, ash, beech and hazel of this ancient forest, which blends wonderfully with the winter whites of snowdrops, the yellow hues of daffodils, the spectacular blue haze from a blanket of bluebells and the golden amber of autumn foliage. Nestling between the Brecon Beacons and Cambrian Mountains the area is a haven for those wishing to experience the pleasures of the great outdoors or simply relaxing in the peace and tranquillity of this stunning region of Carmarthenshire. Walking, cycling, horse riding, bird watching, fishing and many other outdoor pursuits can be enjoyed in the immediate area surrounding Cwmclyd.

I can't recommend Julie and Tony's place enough. After following some excellent directions to their very remote location, we arrived to a roasting hot wood burner and a plate of Welsh cakes on the table. For a reunion with some school friends, the hen house was incredibly comfortable, Julie and Tony very hospitable with some great walking tips, and there were even some entertaining farm animals passing our door. Wouldn't hesitate to visit again

A very special place in the middle of forest. Nicely decorated cottage with a warm fire and friendly hosts waiting for us. Great welcome instructions and useful local hiking tips. Hot water, 24h electricity thanks to combination of solar+generator, so the remoteness does really affect the comfort. Great place for the kids: 2 friendly dogs, 5 cats and lots of space to explore. Beautiful.
