See extra photos of this perfect Welsh cottage
Tŷ 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, Tŷ 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.
The cottage has underfloor heating throughout and a woodburning cooking stove.
