Gwalia is a detached converted stone barn with outstanding coastal and estuary views directly across to the historic castle at Laugharne and Dylan Thomas's boathouse. It is one of two barns at Pentowyn, in a beautiful rural setting on the Taf estuary in Carmarthenshire.

Originally a priory farm, Pentowyn now consists of the owner’s farmhouse, the holiday barns and 5 acres of grazing land. The Wales Coastal Path passes behind the farm and there are many walks from the doorstep – including one to the saltmarsh with its abundance of wildlife.

The long sandy beach at Llansteffan is only a 5-minute drive. The village of Llansteffan has a shop/post office, a beach café and two family-friendly pubs both serving tasty meals. Along with two tennis courts, there are also two play areas for children. The nearby bustling town of Carmarthen offers the usual range of facilities including a leisure centre and multi-screen cinema.

Gwalia is the perfect base for various activities including walking, tennis, bird watching, sea fishing, cycling and golf. The National Botanical Garden of Wales, Aberglasney Gardens and several castles are a short drive away.
