After a busy day exploring, head back to the cottage and relax in the cosy lounge/diner, which has a real country feel. Put your feet up in front of the wood burner effect electric fire - the perfect spot to curl up with a book, enjoy a glass of wine, or watch the TV or a DVD. The kitchen is well-equipped, with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher, plus a washer/dryer should you need it during your stay. The wooden staircase opens to the king-size bedroom with its en-suite bathroom which has a shower over the bath, WC and bidet. The bedroom has a TV and enjoys castle top views.

Outside there is a shared enclosed garden which is also used by the holiday cottage attached. Here you’ll find a patio area with garden furniture and a BBQ - great for dining alfresco on a warm summer’s eve. From here you also have direct access to the public footpath. A lockable outdoor storage unit is available for you to store any bikes and/or fishing equipment you bring with you, and the property has ample parking.

Fabulous cottage - it's very pretty and was spotlessly clean and had everything which we needed for a weekend away with our dog. Kidwelly is pretty centrally located but we liked the fact that it was quieter than the more commercial resorts and the surrounding walks were great.

Such a lovely little cottage and perfectly equipped for a few days away! We had everything we needed and the tea & coffee etc. left for us was most welcomed. We were a little chilly (were definitely heading to winter so no surprise!) so recommend taking a blanket for curling up on the sofa. Recommend a visit to Kidwelly Castle!

This cottage is amazing. Everything you need is there and it is so comfy and clean. The finish in the bathroom and kitchen is spectacular. Its a 5 min walk to Kidwelly castle which is fab. We dont have dogs and I note this cottage is dog friendly, but you couldnt tell that a dog was there the week before. No dog smell, hairs, nothing. Its just fab.Read more The information that the owners provided before we came as well was so handy. Thank you. We had a blast. Rained for 2 days, but rest of week Hide

A lovely stay in this comfy, well equipped cottage. It had everything we needed. Parking was off the road and there was a table and chairs in the bike store so we could sit outside when the weather allowed. The only down side was the location.

Location

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Eastbourne is a bustling seaside resort on the south coast of England. It has been a popular British holiday destination since Victorian times. The town’s attractive pier and promenade is still a major draw for visitors in search of a traditional seaside experience – you can enjoy a long, level stroll along the sea front whilst enjoying an ice cream or some fish and chips. The pebble beach is a good place to park a deckchair and take in the sun, or paddle in the sea. Great for family breaks and as a romantic getaway, the town has much to offer all visitors. The South Downs Way starts in town and extends 100 miles eastwards to Winchester – one of the first stops on the National Trail are the imposing chalk cliffs of the iconic Beachy Head, a few miles to the east of town. Eastbourne is a big hit with train enthusiasts as it’s home to the Spa Valley Railway and the Miniature Steam Railway. Historians may like Redoubt Fort and The Observatory Science Museum (in nearby Herstmonceux). For all-weather attractions for children why not investigate Fort Fun or the indoor Motcombe Swimming Pool? Further afield, and within a one-hour drive to the west is Brighton, with its own pier, wonderful array of shops and eateries. To the west is Bexhill-on-Sea with its impressive art gallery, the De La Warr Pavillion, and long seafront. Just beyond is the old fishing town of Hastings with its new award-winning designer pier, ancient castle and fishing shanty town.
