    “This was our second visit to Otters Holt because we liked it so much the first time.”

    The location is beautiful, and the cottage is cosy. It was great to find some of the items in the kitchen items had been upgraded, and loads of new games. Unfortunately, there isn’t enough cutlery for all 5 of us - eg only 3 spoons, and a few more mugs wouldn’t go amiss.

The property

Llandeilo 7.4 miles, Bannau Brycheiniog National Park 8.5 miles; Carmarthen 22 miles.

Otter’s Holt is a charming, stone-built, terraced cottage nestled in the heart of village of Talley in the Cothi valley, near Llandeilo.

Located beside a historic abbey, and within easy driving distance of the Bannau Brycheiniog National Park, this delightful home is ideal for a family or friends looking to explore the pristine countryside of Carmarthenshire.

Park off-road and make yourself at home in a lovely, open-plan living space, settling into the sitting area with a coffee and basking in the glow of the woodburning stove as you plan the day's adventures.

When mealtimes call, head over to the kitchen space, where there are plenty of amenities to cater to your culinary needs, as well as a comfortable dining area for the family to gather.

Ascend the stairs, passing a selection of books, to find three characterful bedrooms, including a double with blue sky wallpaper and abbey views, a twin with pretty décor and a tastefully furnished single, all serviced by a bathroom which offers a soak amongst the bubbles or a warm shower.

Outside, make the most of the charming outdoor space and its views over the abbey or enjoy the communal garden or perhaps take an after-dinner stroll through the meadow down to the shores of the lake.

Otter’s Holt is an ideal base for a family or group of friends looking to explore this magnificent corner of Wales.

Abbey Cottages

Abbey Cottages comprises four beautiful, stone-built, terraced properties, set in the shadow of a ruined 12th century abbey. Nestled among 23 acres of meadow and hedgerows, beside the shore of Upper Talley Lake, Abbey Cottages offers a tranquil base for friends or families to enjoy the beautiful Welsh countryside, with nearby access to the Bannau Brycheiniog National Park and the lively market town of Llandeilo. Outside, each cottage benefits from off-road parking and use of the enclosed communal garden. Barbecues are also available. Guests are free to roam the land surrounding the cottages, where you will find the intriguing ruins of Talley Abbey as well as access to the nature reserve lying between Upper and Lower Talley Lake; ideal for fishing, birdwatching or simply relaxing. For the more active-minded, a range of fantastic walking routes through Talley Woodlands lie on the doorstep and the award-winning cycling routes of the Black Mountains are close at hand. Built from the stones of the ruined abbey, after it was destroyed during the time of Henry VIII, the cottages themselves are equipped with an ample range of amenities, including children’s facilities such as highchairs, travel cots and stairgates, as well as a selection of games, providing characterful and homely accommodation for groups of all sizes. In the local area, Talley village offers a shop, The Old Smithy - Yr Hen Efail, within a short walk while the National Trust owned community run Cwmdu Inn is 2 miles away in the picturesque hamlet of Cwmdu. For more amenities, the thriving market town of Llandeilo (recently voted The Best Place to Live in Wales by the Sunday Times) is just 7 miles away, where there is a great selection of shops, pubs, and eateries, as well as Llandyfeisant Church and Dinefwr Castle. Beyond this, the historic county of Carmarthen offers a wide range of attractions, such as Aberglasny Gardens, Fan Gyhirych, Pen y Fan, Cefn Llechid, Castell Carreg Cennen and Garn Goch Y Gaer Fawr. Abbey Cottages is an idyllic group of properties ideal for immersing yourself in the incredible scenery of Carmarthenshire.
