Welcome to the Cennen Cottages website
Cennen Cottages test are situated in Carmarthenshire, at the south west corner of the Brecon Beacons National Park. The 8 luxurious cottages are set within 10 miles of each other and have been carefully selected and planned to maximise the spectacular views towards the surrounding mountains and valleys. All of the cottages are 19th century barn conversions that have been expertly designed, to the highest standards, by local architect and artist Donald Jones. They each enjoy a secluded location, have immediate access to good walking and are fortunate to have red kites and buzzards flying overhead.
Each cottage can be booked individually but they have been utilised to host large groups (up to a maximum of 49) due to their close proximity and the large communal areas available in Ysgubor Fawr and Y Stabl.
Cennen Cottages at Blaenllynant is made up of Ysgubor Fawr (sleeps 8), Ty Nant (sleeps 4) and Y Bwthyn (sleeps 2). The three cottages can be hired individually or as a group, making them ideal for holding family or other reunion gatherings or parties. The cottages are situated within a courtyard on the historic Blaenllynant Farm, the former home of Sir John Williams who was physician to Queen Victoria and founder of the National Library of Wales. Each property is well separated from the others and has its own terrace and lawned grounds with outstanding views of the Black Mountain.
