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.

Reviewed here, read how cottage rescued from ruin. Stay here for peaceful days in the countryside or head to a choice of beaches and fantastic coastal walks, and attractive small market towns.

Disgrifiad Cymraeg / Welsh Description

Wedi ei leoli mewn 12 erw o borfeydd gwelltog, lawr lon breifat, dyma le 'gwbl ddi-ar-ffordd' i ddianc, yng nghalon bryniau Sir Gaerfyrddin , ond o fewn cyrraedd rhwydd i'r M4 yng Nghaerfyrddin. Mae tu fewn y bwthyn wedi ei addurno'n draddodiadol Gymraeg (adeiladwyd yn 1755) ac wedi'i ddodrefnu drwyddo a dodrefn hynafol. Cliciwch i weld cipluniau'r gwesteion sydd wedi aros yma. Allan o gannoedd o fythynnod traddodiadol Cymraeg mae gan hwn rhai o'r ystafelloedd mewnol mwyaf hanesyddol yng Nghymru, ac mae wedi cael ei bortreadu ar nifer o raglennu teledu ac mewn cylchgronnau.

In Detail

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.

Customer Comments

"When we asked whether this beautiful home would be suitable for a honeymoon we were assured that it was, but we never expected anything as fabulous as this. The effort made in the renovation was really worth it - the cottage is a permanent reminder of the past days, without losing any of the luxury of modern times. The bedrooms are cosy and we both enjoyed the longest lie-ins for over a year!  This has simply been one of the best holidays ever !" ~ Rebecca & Brian who honeymooned .

"I adore Welsh Vernacular buildings and furniture, so this cottage has been a wonderful place to stay for a week. My wife summed it up when she told people back home 'its like living in one of those buildings in St Fagan's museum of rural life'! A lovely quiet and remote cottage which has been brought back to life, well done ! " ~ Andrew & Diane Gadd

"Thank you for a warm and cosy winter break- fantastic. The sunshine even paid a visit and we saw loads of Buzzards & red kites over the cottage. A holiday we wont forget !" ~ Claire & Simon from Shropshire

Booking Notes

Note that the second bedroom is off the first, and that the antique beds are slightly narrower than standard. Due to the traditional nature of this cottage it can be cooler than others in the winter - please come prepared. Cot and highchair available - request from owner after booking.
