Grove Barn, this converted stone barn was once the dairy, dating back to the 1700s. It has been beautifully renovated, retaining all its original character, 1 of 3 holiday homes set in almost 2 acres of terraced and landscaped grounds up a sweeping driveway above the tranquil seaside town of Llansteffan, largely unchanged by time yet only 8 miles outside the County town of Carmarthen with its excellent facilities. Steps lead up to a walkway leading into the spacious first floor open plan living space. Furnished in a contemporary style yet retaining its original character, the A frame beams and wooden floors are complimented by the modern fitted kitchen area and large comfy sofas to relax on. Stairs lead down to the delightful ground floor bedrooms.
Spend your days wandering the wonderful landscaped and terraced grounds or lazing by the elevated heated outdoor pool while you marvel at the breathtaking view over the beach and Towy estuary.
A perfect holiday base for a couple or family whatever the time of year to explore this wonderful part of Carmarthenshire.
Care needed as uneven steps and some unfenced drops.
Shares the same location as 43214 Grove House & 43215 Grove Cottage.
The Grove is a group of 3 holiday cottages, dating back to the 1700’s, set at the end of a sweeping drive in the midst of almost 2 acres of beautifully maintained, terraced grounds above the unspoilt seaside town of Llansteffan, on the shores of the Towy estuary. Breathtaking sweeping views can be enjoyed over the tranquil town to the beautiful sandy beach and sea. Steps and paths lead up through the shared terraced grounds with a large sloping lawn. The elevated outdoor heated pool available from May to the end of September will give hours of entertainment to both children and adults alike with its enclosed paved pool side being a wonderful sunny spot to relax and soak up the amazing views. Each property has its own patio area where you can enjoy an alfresco meal on a summer’s evening.
Llansteffan has a thriving local community with 2 pubs, a post office, well stocked village shop and cafe which holds themed food evenings all within walking distance, while the golden beach is less than a 5 minute walk away, explore the ruins of the 12th Century Castle overlooking the beach, or walk the coastline with its hidden coves and rock pools. For those looking for more, the excellent facilities of the County town of Carmarthen is only 8 miles away, while there is plenty to do in the area with the National Botanical Gardens nearby, Ffos Las racecourse holds monthly fixtures and Laugharne, the home of Dylan Thomas, lies a short drive to the west.
The Grove is ideal for individuals or the perfect holiday base for larger gatherings of friends and families looking for a group of cottages in a wonderful location.
