About a 10 minute drive from the sandy beach at Llansteffan in Carmarthenshire, Cynnog Ark is one of two set in an 8 acre traditional hay meadow with panoramic countryside views. The peacefulness of the location has captured many hearts.

The farm has been in our family for many generations and we run it under an environmental scheme which encourages the preservation of wildlife habitats. As part of this we have two ponds that provide a haven for wild mallard, moorhen, dragonflies and butterflies.

It is a wonderful base for bird watching (you may spot Red Kite, pheasants, wild ducks and geese from the Ark) as well as for countryside and coastal walks. The Wales Coast Path passes within 1.5 miles of the Ark as it winds its way along the edges of the Towy and Taf Estuaries.

It is 4 miles to the seaside village of Llansteffan, where a walk up to the castle will be well-rewarded with a stunning view of the Towy Estuary and Carmarthen Bay.

Although hidden away in beautiful countryside, Cynnog Ark is very conveniently located: it is less than an hour and a half from Cardiff. From the Ark, it is just a 10 minute drive to Carmarthen, with its traditional market, wide range of shops and supermarkets. The National Botanic Garden of Wales is a 20 minute drive away.

The main route to Pembrokeshire is close by, bringing famous attractions such as Oakwood Theme Park, Folly Farm and Heatherton World of Activities within a 30-40 minute drive.


Cynnog Ark sleeps 5 with 1 double bed and 3 single futons.

The Ark consists of just one room which serves as bedroom/living/dining room. It has a small dining table, 2 chairs and a sideboard. The laminated floor is covered by mats and rugs and a log burner heats the Ark. It is decorated by wall-hangings and framed photographs of animals on the farm. Lighting is provided by tea-lights (candles supplied), there is no electricity to this part of the accommodation.

There are kitchen and bathroom facilities in separate cabins nearby. The kitchen cabin has a fully equipped kitchen with 4 ring electric cooker with oven and grill, electric kettle, microwave, toaster and each Ark has the use of its own fridge/freezer. There is also a mini-kitchen with kitchen units, sink and camping stove. The other cabin has 2 toilets and an electric shower.


Cynnog Ark is built on wooden decking with a pleasant, spacious seating area complete with bench, picnic table, firepit and built-in BBQ. The kids are free to run wild in the 8 acre meadow. It is situated next to Steffan Ark.
