  • The Old Post Office, CarmarthenshireInstant Book Overlay Image
    Opposite the majestic village church, this Grade II listed building is thought to have been constructed in the mid to late 19th century. It is part of a virtually intact and coherent group of houses at the centre of the pretty and tranquil village of Myddfai. It was originally the village post office and shop, as the name suggests, and has been in the owner’s family since 1921. The owner’s grandfather (who was the postmaster) and great grandfather were also the village blacksmiths, and the Old Smithy can still be seen in the village, identified by a horseshoe over the door.
    The Old Post Office shop front and doorway are still there today and inside the house, some of the shop shelving is still in use on the wall as a bookcase. The shop door has beautiful stained glass panels that create patterns on the walls when the evening sunlight passes through it. Outside, the small post box is still in use and is set within the wall of the house. The post office was finally closed in 1988, when the owner’s grandmother was no longer well enough to run it, but it has remained a cherished and charming family house and is now available for holidaymakers to enjoy and appreciate. Inside this cosy cottage there is an electric wood burner effect fire in the living room for homely nights, or the study offers the perfect place to sit and read or families may enjoy using the games console. The attractive sun room is the place to enjoy a morning coffee or evening glass of wine. Sitting here you can take in the spectacular views of the rolling countryside beyond the large enclosed lawned garden and patio. The property complies with the Visit Wales Cyclists and Walkers Schemes. These two awards are given to properties which go that extra mile to provide excellent facilities for guests. This means The Old Post Office has somewhere you can dry outdoor clothing, store your bikes, access a water point outside to clean your muddy boots and bikes and, essential for any adventure, a first aid kit.
    The village of Myddfai lies in the stunning Brecon Beacons National Park, and in the foothills of the Black Mountain. The Brecon Beacons National Park offers uncrowded roads to visit the historic towns and villages, and of course, the most spectacular scenery and opportunities for outdoor pursuits, including golf. It is also the first International Dark-Sky reserve in Wales. On a clear night in the Brecon Beacons, you can see the Milky Way, major constellations, bright nebulas and even meteor showers; enough to make anyone starry eyed. During the 13th century, Myddfai was frequented by physicians and medicinal remedies were created. Over the years, the stories of the Physicians of Myddfai have become bound up with the legend of Llyn y Fan Fach – the Lady of the Lake. You can learn all about this at the Myddfai Visitor Centre, which is situated just a few yards from The Old Post Office. Here you will also find a fascinating craft shop and a lovely café; the perfect place to relax whilst you learn about the legends.
    Just 3 miles away you will discover the ancient Carmarthenshire market town of Llandovery, with a wider selection of shops, cafés, pubs and restaurants, as well as the Heritage Centre giving an insight into the lives of the drovers who passed through the town. Visit the ruins of the 13th century Carreg Cennen Castle or the Red Kite Feeding Station at Llanddeusant, where daily feeding of these amazing birds takes place in the summer. The market town of Llandeilo is not too far away and here you will discover lots of independent boutique shops and eateries; the town is fast gaining a reputation as a foodies paradise. Also within easy reach are the National Trust Dolaucothi Gold Mines (tours available), Aberglasney Gardens and the National Botanic Garden of Wales with its great glass dome, perfect for a visit at any time of year. If you fancy a day without the car, the Heart of Wales train runs from Llandovery and will take you through the rugged beauty, tranquil villages and picturesque Victorian spa towns that are dotted along one of the most scenic lines in the United Kingdom. Come and immerse yourself in this wonderful area and let the stresses of everyday life fade away as you enjoy your stay in The Old Post Office. Shop 20 yards, pub and restaurant 3 miles.
