This is a hidden gem, the perfect boutique retreat!

 Glangwili Mansion is a stunning, award winning boutique Bed and Breakfast as well as offering self catering options, and is idyllically located on the edge of Brechfa Forest in the beautiful Gwili valley, just a few miles north of the busy market town of Carmarthen in South West Wales.  It's not at all surprising that this hidden gem has recently been awarded the Gold Award from Visit Wales for the 2nd year running and is proud to be high up in the top 4% of the best luxury accommodation in Wales.

With just three luxurious suites, you really are a VIP and the attentive owners Linda and George greet you with coffee and Welsh cakes on arrival and will ensure that your stay is a most enjoyable one.  This is a perfect country escape, whether it's for romantic walks in the valley and the forest, picnics on the beaches only 25 minutes away, or just a relaxing in your home from home, away from it all.  You are sure to be able to completely unwind and leave the hustle and bustle of everyday life behind you.  This is a true escape, as children under 12 aren't allowed to stay here on the BB basis so you can rest assured there will be no little ones disturbing your special grown up getaway.

This is a five star hide away and is remarkably good value. The three suites all have fabulous king size or super king size beds, sumptuous furnishings, a spacious seating area and high tech flat screen TVs, DVDs & Ipod station. You will have fluffy robes and slippers for extra comfort.  Each one has a stunning view of the landscaped gardens, Brechfa forest and the surrounding  Camarthenshire countryside. Summer afternoons can be spent on the terrace with a glass of wine or you can enjoy a game of boules or croquet on the lawn.

Breakfast is served in the delightful Gwili room, and includes a full Welsh breakfast using the best of local and regional produce. Vegetarian options are also available.

Linda and George have paid great attention to detail at Glangwili Mansion and as an added bonus, they also display unique artworks by accomplished Welsh artist Prudence Walters. These complement the contemporary decor and add to the unique ambience throughout.

 There are plenty of very good pubs and restaurants close by for your evening meal and as there is no licence to sell alcohol here, you are welcome to bring your own wine or Champagne to help get your weekend off to a sparkling start!

For those who wish to share Glangwili Mansion's  secret with friends then you can hire the house as an exclusive self catering booking for 6 ( in the 3 suites), or if you prefer, self catering for 2 in the ground floor studio apartment.

Whatever occasion you are celebrating, at Glangwili Mansion you are sure to have a relaxing and fabulous time, and will no doubt return back to the land of reality,  completely refreshed and ready to take on the world again. There are some great prices available as well as Dinner deals with local restaurants, so please check out the website for further information. Don't forget to mention Away without the Kids when booking!
