Went back to stay with Elaine and Keith for the second time; always a welcome. Room was clean,good bed linen,and so was the en-suite bathroom. Breakfast was really good with plenty of choice. Can't beat Shakeshaft's for a good all round B/B

We chose Shakeshafts for a 2 night stopover on our way to West Pembrokeshire so that we could visit the National Gardens of Wales and Aberglasny Gardens. It was excellent in all respects - good parking, nice room and dining room and a very good breakfast with eggs from their own hens. The garden is very pretty with a look-out... More

Found this delightful bed and breakfast while looking through trip advisor, great reviews and I can see why. Comfortable and well equipped rooms, very quite due to rural location. Plenty of parking and great garden. Nice home cooked breakfast, but it is served at 08.30. If you're in the Carmarthen then this would be a good place to stay.

Wonderful views from the house and gardens. Gardens well laid out and well kept. Just a short drive from the Botanical Gardens

Superb B&B. Nicely decorated, great shower, excellent breakfast every morning. Perfectly located for local attractions including the National Botanic Gardens of Wales and several castles. Check the map before you leave home as the sat-nav will let you down.

Second visit to the B&B. It is in a beautiful rural location. The property is well cared for and loved. The room is spotlessly clean with nice views of the countryside. Breakfast is very good. Used it as a base to explore the local area by bike. Owners stored my bike. They are very friendly and hospitable. A very pleasant... More

We visited the National Botanic Gardens of Wales and needed an overnight stay before spending the next day back at the Gardens. Shakeshafts is the perfect place. Just a few minutes drive away, spotlessly clean, excellent shower, really good cooked breakfast and friendly hosts with their own wonderful gardens. If you walk up the rather steep back field of the... More
