    Oil central heating (underfloor on ground floor), electricity, bed linen, towels and Wi-Fi included. Initial fuel for wood burner included. Travel cot and highchair available on request. Welcome pack. External utility room with freezer and washing machine. Decking with garden furniture. Lawned garden. Bike store. Private parking for 3 cars. No smoking. Please note: This property is access via a rural lane and there are 3 steps in the garden. There are slopes, drops and stream in the grounds.

    The owners of Gelli Barn (meaning grove) are justifiably proud of this lovely two storey holiday home. They have painstakingly restored and refurbished the barn, creating a stylish and very comfortable base for exploring this beautiful part of Wales. Originally a threshing barn where the grain was separated, the open plan living space with its cosy wood burner, is where the wagon would have entered and the original narrow slit window is a feature of the room, although now thankfully glazed.
    There are attractive views over the valley and two walks from the barn so you may walk to Trapp or all the way into Llandeilo if you are feeling adventurous. When the bluebells are in flower the woods have a carpet of blue to admire. One mile from Trapp, on the western fringe of the Brecon Beacons National Park, Carreg Cennen is one of the few remaining privately owned castles in Wales. It was once voted Wales’ most romantic ruin and is open year round with tea rooms and a craft shop. The colourful and picturesque market town of Llandeilo is just a short drive and is scattered with a varied array of independent shops and a wide selection of places to eat, from a quick snack to à la carte meals. It has gained a reputation for being a paradise for foodies and shoppers alike.
    One of the oldest Welsh counties, Carmarthenshire has a spectacular rural landscape and is known as the ’Garden of Wales’. It is rich in myths and folklore, being the stronghold of one of the ancient kingdoms of Wales, and stories of Merlin, King Arthur and his knights, healing maidens from deep mountain lakes, dragons, and saintly miracles abound. There is so much to explore; why not visit the National Trust’s fascinating Dinefwr Park and Castle and Newton House, or the National Botanic Garden of Wales, with its huge glass dome, the largest single span glasshouse in the world. Poised on the landscape like a giant raindrop, it protects and conserves some of the most endangered plants on the planet. The county has six of the finest bucket and spade beaches in Europe and one of the longest in Wales at ’Cefn Sidan’, Pembrey, easily reached in 45 minutes by car.
    When you return to Gelli Barn after a day out exploring, you will have all the modern comforts to come home to and a private decked terrace overlooking the natural garden and woods and from where you can relax and enjoy a drink. Here, you can sit and soak up the peaceful atmosphere and you may be lucky enough to see the wild deer that are sometimes seen on the land. Shop and restaurant 2½ miles pub 2 miles.

    Fab holidays in a cosy, modern and well-equipped cottage. Friendly and helpful owners. Very quiet and near lots of places of interest such as gardens, castles, coastal paths and the marvellous Brecon Beacons. Highly recommended :))

    This is our second stay and it just gets better. Lovely countryside retreat. Owners Nick and Jo are great hosts and very,very welcoming. Gelli Barn has really changed since our last visit. They have more animals and an additional 2 pods which are very well equipped. This is a place you never want to leave, peaceful and tranquil. Nice if you just want to chill out, but also close to Carmarthen, Tenby for great days shopping or sight seeing. Looking forward too our next visit, just can’t wait to visit again.

    Like we already wrote in the guestbook: a clean cottage, good bedlinen, no smelly place, sympathic host and hostess, we could ask anything, they would help us all the time. Hard place to find but....... once you've found it (with a little help from the host) it's HEAVEN !!

    Wonderful cottage and great hosts. Great for anyone who is looking for complete peace and quiet to unwind. Lovely location if a bit difficult to get to given its rural location. Would definitely recommend.

    We had a super holiday while staying at Gelli Barn and were given a very warm welcome. We visited many local attractions and it was always nice to come 'home' in the evening.

    We really enjoyed our stay at Gelli Barn. The cottage is very warm and comfortable,clean and nicely furnished. It is also well equipped and in a lovely location. The only slight downside is the track leading to the cottages which is unmade and pretty bumpy but tackled with care it's fine.

    We had a lovely short break at Gelli barn, the cottage was perfect and very comfortable, the owners were around if you needed them, and they also left a lovely welcome pack on arrival,There wasnt any pubs or restaurants you could walk to but that didn’t bother us,Lovely to have alpacas, horses and chickens in the fields near by, would recommend and would also love to return.

    I cannot express how happy we are to have found Gelli barn! From the moment we drove down the track that leads to the barn we were amazed at how it felt like we were in a fairy tale. We had the warmest welcome from the owners and the attention to detail and little extras made for a very relaxing and comfortable stay. There is everything you need and all the home comforts at Gelli barn, as well as so much to around the local area making it the perfect get away. Thank you for the best week away! We cannot recommend this little gem highly enough and we're all looking forward to booking our next stay!

    A wonderful peaceful retreat with castles, parks, food shops and amazing scenery within 30 minutes drive. The sheltered, sunny deck is a great place for meals and relaxing.
