Bryn Eglur is simply one of the best rustic cottage interiors in the UK.
See it in spring photographs, in summer photographs, in autumn colours, and in winter here, or in real guest photos. With access to a dozen acres of green pasture, in a peaceful location, this is a real 'step back in time' escape in the heart of the hills of Carmarthenshire, West Wales, yet easily accessed from the M4 at Carmarthen, and only 11 miles (16 minute drive) from the coast at Laugharne. See photos from easily accessible coastal walks. The detached cottage has one of the best surviving traditional Welsh cottage interiors (built 1755) and is furnished with Welsh country antiques.
Kitchen with new Rayburn stove (solid fuel) that runs hot water and underfloor heating to ground floor. Neff stainless steel appliances. fridge-freezer and stainless steel hob and electric oven. Doors to both gardens.
Dining room in former parlour with antique Welsh oak dresser, longcase clock etc. Some nice Georgian pieces. A nice, peaceful room to write in.
Cegin Fawr is the main room of the house (literally the 'Great Kitchen'). Working inglenook with genuine Victorian cast-iron range. Welsh stick chairs, settles etc.
Bathroom (ground floor) in former dairy with contemporary roll-top bath and modern designer fittings, heated towel rail.
Main bedroom with antique cast iron double bed and other country antiques, lovely views. Electric radiator. The antique bed is 6" narrower than a modern double.
Second bedroom with double Welsh box-bed (sleeps 2). One of the best beds we have on our books, but note it is slightly shorter and narrower than a modern bed and therefore not suitable for, say, two tall adults. This room is entered from the main bedroom.
Gardens front and rear and fields on all four sides are yours to explore.
This is our most authentic interior and has fewer modern conveniences (no sofa, no TV, no shower). That's why we love it, but it won't suit everyone.
If you enjoy a sense of rural seclusion, genuine country interiors restored to a high specification then you will LOVE Trelech Hill. There really is nowhere else like it to rent in Wales.
