The space
The Coach House is a peaceful cosy retreat. It has been lovingly converted from a former outbuilding and has much charm and character. Consisting of one beautiful open plan space with cosy living area with large antique wood burner (that can be opened to give the experience of an open fire), there is oil fired central heating but we would advise bringing slippers if booking in the winter months, Wi-Fi (nb. signal can be intermittent especially in bad weather!), TV (freeview over 100 channels), DVD player & CD/radio (with Bluetooth connection for playing music from any of your own devices). There is a beautiful bedroom on the mezzanine level as well as a fully equiped kitchen and bathroom.

The private covered outside area is perfect for enjoying the peace of the countryside with a drink and a bbq. The dark skies at night are perfect for stargazing. There is a beautiful view from the owner's garden which you can enjoy from the bench (pictured) just below the Coach House and also from the stunning circular feature window in the bedroom.

The Coach House is perfectly suited as a romantic retreat for couples but can also be enjoyed by families due to the sofa bed in the living area. A cot and high chair can be provided on request; although care should be taken with small children due to the cottage layout with 2 sets of stairs and the sitting area is not enclosed. Initial supply of logs included and additional wood can be provided for a small charge.

Guest access
The Coach House is situated a mile from a quiet village accessed along a rough track winding through beautiful woodland and farmland. You are welcome to wander in our fields and woodland. The Coach House is completely self contained with your own private entrance and outdoor covered sitting area to enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside whatever the weather. Part of the garden is shared with the owner.

Other things to note
The Coach House is perfect for those seeking peace, quiet, dark skies & abundant wildlife. We have found badger setts in our woods and there are always red kites circling above. Wild garlic and strawberries are abundant depending on the time of year, which you are welcome to forage.

Claire, Shaun and our daughter Carys (plus menagerie of animal friends) moved to our small holding in Talley in March 2018 from the Brecon Beacons, having being attracted to Carmarthenshire’s peaceful rolling countryside during many holiday retreats to West Wales.  We wish our guests the most wonderful stay and hope you truly relax and enjoy the escape from the hustle and bustle of modern day life!
