Two lakes, one of which can be fished by arrangement, add to the beauty of this lovely corner of Wales. Each cottage is beamed throughout and all retain a host of original features. Wood burning stoves, open fireplaces and some antique furnishings are complimented by modern day facilities, all combining perfectly to provide spacious, well equipped and comfortable accommodation. Abbey Cottages are ideally situated for exploring the many delights of the area - the Dolaucothi goldmines, Dan-Yr-Ogof caves, the National Botanic Gardens of Wales, and Gwili Steam Railway Park are all within easy reach.
