For a fail-safe introduction to Carmarthenshire’ history, heritage and wildlife, stay at Allt-y-Golau Uchaf.
Your hosts Colin and Jacquie Rouse take pride in sharing their exhaustive knowledge of this fascinating part of Wales with their guests.
There’s history literally on the doorstep. Their immaculate, low-beamed farmhouse dates from 1812. It has been renovated to an exceptionally high standard and preserves many original features, an abundance of antiques and old photographs adding to the air of authenticity. The warm, cosy atmosphere extends to the bedrooms, each named after a flower and appropriately colour co-ordinated.
Although there’s much to visit locally - the lovely Vale of Tywi, National Botanic Garden of Wales, castles, craft shops and market towns – you’ll want to linger over the sumptuous breakfast, a feast that even the best hotels would find difficulty in matching.
Option 1: If you are travelling west along the M4, continue westwards along the A48 after the end of the motorway at junction 49. Continue westwards across Cross Hands roundabout and turn left at the second slip road, which is sign posted for The National Botanic Garden of Wales, and follow the B4310 passed the Garden towards Nantgaredig. At the next T-junction turn right and then left after a short distance, dropping down to the old bridge across the River Tywi. Continue through Nantgaredig until you reach the crossroads with the A40. Continue north following the B4310 towards Brechfa.
Option 2: If you are travelling towards Carmarthen from the direction of Llandeilo, along the A40, look out for the village of Pontargothi. After a short distance you will see a crossroads with the B4310 at Nantgaredig - turn right following the sign for Brechfa.
After reaching Nantgaredig head north towards Brechfa along the B4310. After approximately four kilometres you will come to the village of Felingwm Uchaf with it's garage, school and Plough Inn. Continue northwards for about a kilometre and the building on your left is Felingwm Pottery. Our drive entrance is on that bend just before the pottery. You might find it easier to continue a short distance, turn around and approach our drive from the north. Drive straight up and park at the top of the drive where we will be waiting to greet you.
