The Glynhir Estate

Ammanford, Carmarthenshire
Bed & Breakfast

Fringing Brecon Beacons walks, a relaxed rambling house with gardens to roam, log fire, home-grown hearty dinners – and no pretensions


4 rooms


Rooms sleep 2 – 3


This 1600s country house stands on the edge of the Black Mountain. Outside: a two-acre kitchen garden, space to wander and brigade of patrolling chickens, ducks and peacocks. Inside, the house has spurned the urge to take itself too seriously and remains decidedly lived in. Find William Morris wallpaper in the dining room, lemon trees in the conservatory, old cabinets stuffed with interesting things in the sitting room and a medley of market finds surprising you at every corner. Bedrooms are big and comfy, bathrooms excellent. Katy’s cooking is good too: home-grown, tasty. Head out for fantastic walks, fishing, Aberglasney Garden.

Glynhir Estate is a wonderful place, secluded in the gorgeous Welsh countryside. The house is beautiful, as the garden! Our room was very comfy and big, photos don't do it justice. Breakfast was delicious and Katy was a lovely host. Can definitely recommend!

Vanessa, Bristol

This is a wonderful experience. Anyone who wants to stay in a beautiful house amid lovely grounds with peacocks ,hens and, geese in the garden except Marta who is quite at home indoors occasionally! with a warm and welcoming host and hostess couldn't find anywhere better! We loved it and will be back Thank you Rupert and Katy for making our stay memorable and cooking such delicious breakfasts .

Anne, Oxford

I've been thinking of the Glynhir since the day I left. Part of a 40th birthday treat, my trip to Europe was compete visiting this beautiful estate. Majestic, homely. Full of fancy, unpretentious. Exciting history and modern journeys, relaxing atmosphere spanning ages. Thank you Katy and crew - you made my stay forever memorable. I'll be back with my family to say hello again soon!

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Katy Jenkins

  • Glynhir Waterfall - A short walk down through waterfall woods takes you to this picturesque waterfall and cascades. Spring time is a must for the sea of bluebells
  • Aberglasney Gardens - Spectacularly set in the beautiful Tywi valley of Carmarthenshire, Aberglasney House features one of the finest gardens in Wales. Aberglasney Gardens have been an inspiration to poets since 1477
  • The National Botanic Gardens of Wales - Set in the beautiful Carmarthenshire countryside, the Garden is a fascinating blend of the modern and historic.Here you’ll find an inspiring range of themed gardens & the world’s largest single-span glasshouse
  • Dinefwr Castle - This Castle not only occupies a place of great affection in the minds and traditions of the Welsh people but also majestic hilltop locations above the Tywi valley. The site is forever associated with the princes of Deheubarth
  • Llyn-y-Fan Fach - A remote Carmarthenshire lake shrouded in Welsh legend 12km southeast of Llandovery in the Brecon Beacons. It is a relatively easy and very beautiful trek for people of all ages and experience
  • Llandeilo - There can be fewer towns in Wales more attractive than Llandeilo in Carmarthenshire, sitting proudly on a hill above the river Tywi. And there are fewer valleys lovelier than the Tywi, the longest river which flows entirely through Wales
