Virtual Viewing Bantwen is a delightful Grade II listed cottage set in just of half an acre of land on the fringe of a popular rural village. The garden boasts wonderful views over rolling farmland towards the hillsides of the Towy Valley and beyond. The cottage has been the subject of much refurbishment to preserve and enhance the many original features including the impressive under thatch, exposed beams, and stonework.

The accommodation downstairs provides reception hall, sitting room with log burner, kitchen, dining room with second log burner, ground floor bedroom, and bathroom. Quarry tiles and wooden floors run throughout.

Upstairs are two double bedrooms approached by independent staircases, one being the original crog loft . This room features original wooden beams and the exposed thatch has recently been lined and insulated with wool and clay. Externally are a garage and a stone outbuilding, which houses the boiler and has plumbing points for a washing machine. A private lane leads to the spacious parking area alongside the garden where there are raised vegetable beds and a meadow area planted with native trees.

The property stands on the outskirts of Carmel village which is highly convenient to the M4 extension at Cross Hands, together with Llandeilo to the North in the Towy Valley. Facilities are therefore within a short drive. Carmel itself has a nature reserve and is a starting point for many lovely walks.

Planning permission has been granted to renovate and extend the property. In line with this, work has begun to restore the stonework on the exterior and interior. Planning No: E/36471. Further details via
