'This luxurious bolt hole, approached along a bumpy private track, has a minimalist, design-led approach. Traditional cottage meets glass and concrete- no wonder it has appeared in glossy interior mags.The environmental side has not been forgotten, with sheep-wool insulation in the roof and natural spring-water supply.' The Times (Top 10 Best Places in Britain to Escape the Crowds)
'High-end isn't the only way to high style. Under the Thatch has revolutionised our expectation of self-catering, yet weekends can cost less than £300 in a Carmarthenshire cottage, such as Bryncyn, whose concrete extension houses a wet room and kitchen/diner from which a terrace and outdoor hot tub are accessed. It is quite something to float in the warm depths as rain falls and a herd of cows passes on its way to milking.' The Observer ('Holiday Homes with Grand Designs', 2012)
As featured in World of Interiors magazine & Schoner Wohnen magazine. Read the Guardian's review here.
Bryncyn is a secluded traditional hillside cottage with a minimalist & modernist interior, extension & hot tub. This is a holiday home for people that love minimalism, good architecture and design. No fuss, no clutter, just clean lines and a wonderful sense of purity. Your eyes are constantly drawn out to the landscape and the views of the Preseli mountains.
Set in a good-sized garden up a private track, this is a minimalist, really 'hard-core' modernist escape. Set in the heart of the hills of Carmarthenshire, yet easily accessed from the M4. There are no near neighbours, and wide open country views. Click here to see photos, or some in the snow, or another independent review here.
Centrally heated to the ground floor & electric oil-filled radiators upstairs.

'Very peaceful place and the hot tub is great, loved the master bedroom, great layout and design. Really enjoyed ourselves and have yet another 'Under the Thatch ' cottage to recommend to our friends' ~ Suzanne & Neil Travers
" An absolute gem of a cottage in a superb location. The atmosphere created within the cottage, demands you to unwind and slow down to a more civilized pace ... watching the shooting stars from the hot tub"
'A delightful cottage, so peaceful at night it is a true escape from the rat race ! Dorian you have created something really special here.
"Stunning cottage - conversion strikes the perfect balance between the pleasing aesthetics of both the modern and traditional - it is the best of both worlds! Hot Tub is a real winner particularly at night watching shooting stars. Truly relaxing and meditative, views magnificent, snow magical. Thanks to a beautiful space and wonderful owner, a unique experience" ~ Rosie and Nathan
Note bumpy track OK for all but lowest of cars. Property not suitable for children under 8 years old (babes in arms OK). Ladder stairs to bedroom 2. We recommend this cottage for max. 4 adults. Note the cottage has a minimalist, concrete interior that won't suit everyone as it can feel 'austere' in Winter.Bring a jumper!
