TAKE A HIKE: Step out on to the All Wales Coast Path, a bit much for a morning walk at 870 miles long, however there are beautiful stretches directly from the cottage door.
BRING A BIKE: Pretty trails along the lanes, through Carmathenshire and neighbouring Pembrokeshire, the Celtic Trail is 143 miles in total and there are pretty sections that make a great day cycle ride, taking in some of the best of local pubs en-route. Bike hire is also available locally.
HEAD TO THE BEACH: The nearest beach of Llansteffan is fabulous for walking though soft sand, with ice cream in hand and taking a tour of the castle perched just above the beach. Carmarthenshire has six of the best sandy beaches in Europe and one of the longest in Wales, so bucket & spades at the ready!
TOUR THE TOWNS: Laugharne is just 15 minutes away and famed for being Dylan Thomas's home, worth a trip to visit the Boat House, have a peek at the Castle and pop into collectors haven, The Tin Shed, there's also a beach well worth the visit too. Tenby is another favourite, a very pretty walled seaside town with a great beach, reached within 20 minutes from the cottage
