CUSTOMER REVIEWS
  • Ty Unnos is a project beautifully undertaken. We admired the skill and dedication displayed in every detail in this authentic reconstruction. My wife, whose family come from Narberth, recognised many of the pieces of furniture from her childhood. We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay and experience of a simpler life. Richard N, 7 July 2015
  • The cottage was beautiful. Haven't seen another like it. The feeling of it was very cosy, thanks to the thick walls and thatched roof but it didn't feel cramped due to the high ceiling and spacious bathroom. Dorian was very helpful and the small details of the decor made the cottage feel like a home, as did Mrs Jones the cat who came to say hello most days. Jed H, 30 June 2015
  • This cottage is rural and rustic and so quaint. Such a peaceful place the only sounds being the birds. We loved it and the owner was kind and friendly. The dogs loved it and we enjoyed everything about our stay. Gillian B, 27 May 2015
  • The cottage when we found it as it was really secluded! Wow amazing place if your looking for total peace! We had a wonderful time and made a new friend- Mrs Jones- Dorians cat! So cute! We would definitely come back x Pamjit P, 26 May 2015
  • All brilliant. 5 year old daughter loved the box bed, pictures, interesting ornaments etc, fields to run around in and, most of all, the cat. Great experience to be able to stay in such a unique property and in a fab location too :-) P.S.- Dorian was very helpful with our last minute booking and even more so when we locked ourselves out. Thanks very much! Katie F, 20 March 2015
  • The cottage was amazing and I felt very privileged to be able to stay in such a beautiful place with the museum piece furnishings. It was Mrs Jones the cat that was the final and very fitting addition to the whole picture; loved a cwtch and happy to curl up on the settle in front of the fire. No TV or Internet, just R4 or the sound of nature outside for company which was such a great stress reliever. I do some work for the National Trust and have dressed a room so I know how important it is to get it right and to see like the occupants have just left the room for a moment - to be atmospheric and feel in that time. Thank you Dorian. Stacey Stacey E, 2 February 2015
  • 'Oh my! We have had an absolutely wonderful stay at Ty Unnos. This is such especial place and really unique experience for our family. The cottage is superb and we loved all the gorgeous antiques that furnish it . Our two year old son absolutely loved sleeping in the box bed and being able to cuddle 'Mrs Jones’ (the cat) He’s had a ball !! We feel that we have experienced something pretty spectacular and have some lovely memories to take away. We’ll definitely be back.' Jeff, Lara & Fynn, from the Gower 21 November 2014
  • ‘We came here on a whim having seen the cottage in 'World of Interiors'. We could not have been more delighted, the sun shone, Ty Unnos was charming and Carmarthenshire spectacular, looking forward to returning, as is our dog Hector’ Simon & Alexa Tuffin from Dorset 21 November 2014
  • ‘Wow, what an amazing adventure we’ve been on this week! The cottage exceeded our expectations (which were high) it’s a fantastic space to relax and take in the surroundings. Highlights include the walks from Cenarth Falls to Newcastle Emlyn and the Welsh Coastal Path from Marros Sands to Laugharne to name just two. We can’t wait to come back again.' Hayley & Mark, Deptford, London 21 November 2014
 
INFORMATION

See extra photos of this perfect Welsh cottage

Ty Unnos is a romantic, traditional Welsh thatched cottage in the beautiful Carmarthenshire hills, unlike anything you'll find through your average holiday cottage agency. Peep inside. This is exactly what 'under the thatch' is all about - simple, rustic, authentic - in fact this is possibly the most authentic Welsh cottage interior in Wales. Built from local materials in the old-fashioned way, in just one night as per tradition, Ty Unnos is a typical croglofft cottage – an open-plan living space with a sleeping loft over. See how it was built in these photos and in this description. It really is like stepping back in time, into a museum-quality interior.

Staying here you can walk the local fields, visit charming small towns and restaurants, or there's easy access to the coast at Laugharne, and beaches.You can cook in the cast-iron stove or just sit by the fire.

This romantic Welsh cottage is beautifully furnished with traditional antiques. With a sitting area around the hearth, a small kitchen with basic amenities and a Cwpwrdd deuddarn (storage cupboard) downstairs, the sleeping loft is up some fairly steep stairs. There is also a small alcove on the ground floor under the loft with a traditional single Welsh box bed (you need to be reasonably agile to climb in). The stylish, contemporary bathroom is the only 21st Century touch.

See the cottage in the autumn, or how we dressed the cottage for Halloween and Christmas.

The cottage has underfloor heating throughout and a woodburning cooking stove.

Downstairs:

  • Living/Dining room - With traditional Welsh antique furniture. Table, chairs and settle set against lime-washed walls. Impressive inglenook fireplace with woven hazel hood including modern woodburning cooking stove/fire. There is a two-seater sofa.
  • Kitchen - Beneath mezzanine, with basic electrical appliances, oven, hob, kettle etc. and a beautiful slate sink
  • Single 'box' bed (sleeps one adult) hidden privately out of the way behind the living area
  • Bathroom - spectacular semi-sunken contemporary bath, with views to the countryside, sink and loo.

Upstairs/ Crog Lofft

  • Master double on open plan mezzanine

Outside:

  • Front door opens onto a lovely garden and far reaching views to the countryside and beyond
