Carmarthen holiday cottages
Holiday cottages and self-catering accommodation in Carmarthen
Carmarthen is a county town on the River Towy, thought to be the oldest town in Wales. Its Roman fort is believed to date from the first century and nearby is one of two remaining Roman amphitheatres in Wales. When staying in one of our Carmarthen cottages, a visit to the castle is not to be missed – it’s free to visit. Carmarthenshire County Museum is just out of the town at Abergwili, in an old house which has been in continuous use since about 1290, surrounded by lawns, gardens and trees and bordered by a lake. Founded as a college, it became the Bishop's Palace for the diocese of St David's. As for amenities, there are an array of supermarkets, pubs, eateries and shops, perfect for picking up treats when you’re staying in one of our self-catering cottages in Carmarthen.
