Lovely B&B in stunning location on the banks of the river Towy. We had a lovely room overlooking the garden and the river. The room was spotless and well equiped. Breakfast was a full english (if required) and was excellent quality. The owner was most helpful and helped us find two nice restaurent during our stay. We cannot recommend this... More

Lovely B&B a few miles from the centre of Carmarthen. We had a warm and friendly welcome and introduction to the B&B and our room. The room was lovely, quiet and very clean. Next morning, we enjoyed a lovely breakfast that was cooked to perfection. It was delicious! We had a nice chat with Paul and Steve after each breakfast... More

Haven't visited Ty Castell for a couple of years but it is still a fantastic B&B. The owners, Paul and Steve, are so welcoming and really keep the place spotless. I stayed in the twin room and it was extremely comfortable. The garden is beautiful and a lovely place to relax in and enjoy the peace and quiet. Paul and... More

Visited Ty Castell for the 4th or 5th time in the past few years and it is still the best B&B we've stayed in. The hosts are as welcoming as ever and whilst they no longer do evening meals they recommended restaurants in Carmarthen which lived up to their advice. The B& B itself remains a very comfortable and peaceful... More

Just had a fantastic couple of nights at this great B&B! Hosts Steve and Paul are the best ever. Made to feel very welcome. Food, service and accommodation fab. Found time to sit in the lovely garden and spotted a kingfisher by the river. Would love to visit again in the future.

Great welcome...... Lovely room with comfy bed and pillows.... Fantastic view...plenty of space in the room. Good nights sleep...... Peaceful and cosy. Beautiful gardens and lots of seating available outside. Breakfast was excellent... With plenty of choice...including "specials".... I tried the delicious helping of scrambled eggs with smoked salmon!

A good web site is a must for me to consider booking accommodation which, in this case, was for business. We stayed for two nights and would stay for longer if visiting for leisure. The location is quiet, rural, and remote, yet very easily within reach of Nantgaredig, which is only 3 miles from the historic town of Carmarthen (good... More

We were welcomed very warmly and made to feel at home straight away. Everything was exceptionally well presented. Steve and Paul are the very best of hosts combining informality with just the right amount of concern. The kingfishers put on a really great show on Sunday evening - (Paul said he had them "on strings" but we didn't believe him!)... More

It was great to learn that you had the opportunity to see the Kingfishers, they are there but you have to be very alert to see them.
