We chose Shakeshafts for a 2 night stopover on our way to West Pembrokeshire so that we could visit the National Gardens of Wales and Aberglasny Gardens.

Found this delightful bed and breakfast while looking through trip advisor, great reviews and I can see why. Comfortable and well equipped rooms, very quite due to rural location. Plenty of parking and great garden. Nice home cooked breakfast, but it is served at 08.30. If you're in the Carmarthen then this would be a good place to stay.

Superb B&B. Nicely decorated, great shower, excellent breakfast every morning. Perfectly located for local attractions including the National Botanic Gardens of Wales and several castles. Check the map before you leave home as the sat-nav will let you down.
