This group of self catering holiday cottages are surrounded by 35 acres of grounds including a 3 acre horseshoe shaped lake. It is the perfect spot to enjoy a relaxing picnic as it is a haven for bird and wildlife with kites and buzzards soaring overhead, while swans and geese regularly nest on the lake.

Each cottage is individually designed with retained beams, feature windows, open plan living spaces and modern fitted kitchens, while outside there is your own paved patio and landscaped communal area where you can enjoy an evening barbecue.

Pembrey Country Park is one of Carmarthenshire's most popular attractions being a unique blend of coast and countryside with 202 hectares of glorious park land and the beautiful Cefn Sidan beach set against a backdrop of the Gower Peninsula and Carmarthen Bay.

Beaches near Ty Ysgubor

Llansteffan
Llansteffan (sometimes spelt Llanstephan) is a long sandy beach against the River Towy, situated just across the water from Ferryside. Car Parking is currently free, but there are talks of implementing parking charges. Dogs are welcome onto the beach during the winter months providing they are kept on leads, however restrictions are then put in place from 1st May to the 30th September forbidding dogs on this beach. Technically, this is a tidal estuary rather than a beach, and so it is recommended to supervise children bathing at all times due to the strong currents in the water.
Tresaith
Tresaith is a delightful little sandy beach, very popular with families during the summer offering safe swimming and rock pools. There is a waterfall at the northern end of the beach which is a result of glacial activity when a glacier blocked and diverted the route of the river Saith, causing it to cascade in a waterfall directly onto the beach. Dolphins can be spotted almost daily throughout the Summer.
Cwmtydu
Primarily a pebble beach, Cwmtydu Beach is a small cove with plenty of rockpools. A popular place for spotting dolphins as seals, mean that this cove is often known locally as Seals Bay, due to the frequent views of seals lounging on the rocks. Cwmtydu Beach is dog friendly all year round.
New Quay's Blue Flag Award-winning, harbour beach is popular with many visitors. It's pale sand and clear water makes a picture perfect setting for a relaxing day in the sun. Its fabulous cafe serves hot and cold drinks, light snacks and sells many of the usual beach accessories. Toilets with disabled access and a shower are available at the top of the footpath that leads down to the main beach. Ample car parking is available around the village, all are ticket machined. There is additional disabled parking available above the main beach, but get there early as it is limited. Dogs are banned between 1st May and 30th September, and dog bins are situated along the beach.
