Our hosts, Steve and Paul, were a great source of information. Very obliging and offered us leaflets on our planned destination whenever possible. Our room was spotless and well equipped. Breakfasts were delicious with generous portions. This B & B was beautifully situated on a river with beautiful gardens. A great place to just chill out and forget the stress... More

A lovely B&B - clean, comfortable and so peaceful. The garden with the river at the end is very special. We could not have been made more welcome. The food was delicious and cooked exactly as we wanted. I would recommend this B&B and would definitely return if going back to the area.

You are both very kind and your comments are very welcoming. Unlike some small accommodation providers we do not fuss over whether you stay for one day, two days or three weeks, everyone is welcome and you don't have to have an evening meal if you don't want to, we are pretty relaxed and have learned over the last 10...

Lovely stay at Ty Castell. Paul and Steve were very welcoming. Food was lovely and plenty of it. Room was comfortable and very clean. The location is fabulous, the garden is beautiful and access to the river bank footpath just made it. Thank you :-)

We really enjoyed our couple of nights spent at Ty Castell. We enjoyed the excellent evening meal and Paul was the perfect host and Steve the perfect chef. Our room overlooked the stunning gardens and the river where we were lucky enough to see an otter. We would certainly return there and recommend the guest house to other people

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ty Castell Bed and Brekfast sits on the door step of the National Botanic Gardens of Wales in the heart of the Carmarthenshire countryside, in the small hamlet village of Nantgaredig just 4 miles from Carmarthen Town. Ideally situated with good road links for cross county explorations of Carmarthenshire, Pembrokeshire and beyond. Once a farmhouse on the banks of the River Towy, Ty Castell- now a four star bed and breakfast - opens its doors to weekenders, rural explorers, nature and garden admirers. A warm welcome awaits all our guests. Ty Castell offers its visitors quality home made evening meals with comfort and facilities of a very high standard, with a genuinely friendly, informal and personal touch. The Breakfast/Dining Room is housed in a delightful conservatory that allows you to look out across the river Towy and beautiful gardens. Spend some time in the solitude and peace of this green, remote region - where dairy herds graze on some of the best grassland in the British Isles; where the peregrine, red kite and buzzard live; where campion thrives at the side of winding lanes; and where steam trains run on rails that thread through ancient Celtic woodland. What better base for your Welsh peregrinations than Ty Castell - the quiet bed and breakfast where you will truly find a welcome in the valley. The Towy and Cothi Valleys are best known as areas of outstanding beauty, brimming with lakes and legends. They offer a diversity of interests and activities to the visitor. ... more   less
