We stayed in the bayliffs cottage and I would not recommended. The house was damp and therefore smelly. The furnishings are very old. The only bathroom with a shower is ensuite in one of the rooms so is not great if you are staying with friends. When I opened my bag at home after the stay all my clothes smelled... More

Enjoyed my stay here. All as one would expect for a quiet country b&b. There was only one disappointment in the somewhat saggy bed. Breakfast was good. Owners polite and pleasant. Wonderfully quiet. Free WiFi which is good for is tech geeks with not so wonderful cell coverage.

Stayed in the B & B, the room was spacious, the bathroom immense and the country setting was really relaxing. There's a waterfall on their site! They do an excellent breakfast and they make their own jams (they sell them too - if you can't get enough of them). My only regret was only staying one night. I could have... More

Very attractive house in lovely grounds. Large bedroom with small shower room. Room rather sparsely furnished without any tea or coffee making facilities in the room. Lots of lovely soft towels and a big bed with crisp linen. Downstairs there was tea and coffee in the sitting room but needed replenishing. Breakfast was very well cooked and generous. Home made...

A group of 18 of us, mainly artists, stayed at Glynhir for a week. It was a lovely week which we all enjoyed. Glynhir and and the surrounding countryside are lovely. Glynir has a lovely charm and it is nice to stay at a homely and cared for place, bearing in mind they are old buildings. The food was delicious... More

The Baliffs House is of low standard and isn't really suitable to share with friends. The inside is very poorly finished, it's damp, there is only one shower as an en suite of one room, it was actually cold as the boiler wasn't able to heat the space, the fire provided little warmth as all the wood we were advised...

Stayed in the stables, was an amazing little barn conversion, with wood burner, plenty of space and very comfy beds. Stunning scenery. Lovely guild book written by the owners with valid advice! Only down side was that there were no cuterly in the... More

Superb locations, freedom to play And experiment with a variety of materials and ideas. All inspired by the rather fantastic Margaret Merritt (West Dean / Great Missinden). Pigs, chickens, sheep, geese, peacocks and a wonky house stuffed with intersting artefacts provide boundless inspirational opportunities. The week is fully catered. fresh, home made,often home grown. Delicious and plentiful. Luxuries are limited... More

Stayed here whilst on business and loved the location - out in the countryside and very peaceful, the night sky is amazing for any stargazers! Was lovely to arrive to see a row of ducks walking through the yard. Rooms were spacious and light. This is a place where families/friends can stay as there is ample grounds where the children...

Glynhir is made ip of several cottages, flats and the mansion b&b. We stayed in the stable flat which is a very old building with wonky floors which add to the charm. Bathroom is modern and clean. Kitchen had all you need. There are lovely walks around the estate including one to a beautiful waterfall. There are free roaming peacocks,... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Time slips by just as it always has done at Glynhir. For decades, the estate has welcomed guests of all kinds – families, artist groups, tourists – who return again and again to a place where the days seem to pass that bit slower. Guests can while away hours on end by simply sitting out with a mug of coffee in the tree filled garden with its ornamental canal, setting an easel up to capture the views of the rugged Black Mountains, or curling up with a book in front of the open fire in the 17th century mansion. A short stroll takes you around the cobbled farmyard among free roaming peacocks, chickens, geese and ducks, or down to the River Loughor with its 30ft waterfall for the exclusive enjoyment of guests. This is all before you’ve ventured beyond Glynhir’s 220 acres into the Brecon Beacons National Park, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with enough valleys and vistas to satisfy the keenest walkers.AboutGlynhir is located two miles from the village of Llandybie, between the towns of Ammanford and Llandeilo, and just ten miles from the end of the M4. Its name ‘glyn hir’ means ‘long valley’ and describes the way the mansion was built on a plateau above a seven mile long wooded gorge at the foot of the Black Mountains.Glynhir offers both B&B in the 17th century mansion and self catering accommodation in six historic cottages. ... more   less
