If you are looking for a break to relax and recharge your batteries or participate in various outdoor activities such as cycling walking/hiking, or just exploring, then look no further than Gelli Hir Farm. The converted Barn, located in the Carmarthen countryside, and just a short distance away from the Pembrey and Gower coast is superb. A family friendly barn conversion, spacious, very well equipped and furnished and above all so peaceful and relaxing. Catherine and her family were so welcoming, they really made my wife and I feel at home. Don’t be afraid to pop across the yard and visit the stables, you will be made very welcome there by the stable staff and of course the resident horses. Will visit again!
We were a little trepidatious beforehand because the property is attached to the owner's home. However, we needn't have worried, Catherine and her family are amazingly welcoming and we felt at home immediately. The barn is really spacious, clean and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. We have two children, 2 and 9, and it was ideal for them. They played outside and went to see the horses whenever we were at home. There was so much to do in the area we didn't have time to do everything we had planned. The washing machine and tumble dryer were a godsend. We cooked with ease in the kitchen, and the sofa's are super comfy. We all loved our stay here and would not hesitate to book again.
We stayed for 3 nights at Gelli Hir Barn. The greeting we received from Catherine the owner was lovely, very friendly, but gave us privacy to unpack and find our feet. Catherine had also left us a bottle of Prosecco which we thought was a kind touch. The cottage was beautiful in stunning surroundings, very peaceful. It was extremely clean and well equipped. Everything we needed was thought of. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and want to go back again next year. Thank you Catherine for making our stay such a lovely one and hopefully see you soon. Mark and Rebecca.
We stayed in the 3 bedroom cottage at Gelli Hir for our summer holidays with 4 adults and a toddler. We were very impressed from arrival with the excellent standard in the cottage - not only was there a lot of space, but the decoration was fresh, it was clean and there were lots of extra touches (sky on TV, some books and a couple of games, a bottle of prosecco in the fridge). The location of the cottage is on a lovely farm with horses, and lots of grounds to explore. There are also 2 very friendly dogs which my daughter and friend loved playing with in the garden! Being a farm, it is a little drive anywhere, but only 15 minutes into Llanelli and 20 to the country park.
The farmer was around on the farm and was friendly, and his mother was also available if we had any issues (the farmers wife is the one who organises the bookings but we knew in advance that she wouldn't be around). They checked we were the day after we arrived and when we had one slight problem one evening they were quick to sort it.
Overall, we would definitely stay again, and found this to be excellent value and a great base for a wonderful holiday.
First of all the house was spacious and comfortable and had all the amenities. It was even better than the pictures show. Catherine made us feel at home and gave us information about the surrounding places to visit. We were lucky enough to have brilliant sunshine throughout our stay so we spent most of it at various beaches which were nearby at Pembrey and Burry Port and then the 2nd day we drove down to Tenby for the day. We were a family of 3 generations and we all enjoyed ourselves immensely.
