Pontyclerc Farm House Bed and Breakfast is a boutique, family-run bed and breakfast in stunning West Wales within walking distance from Ammanford, yet surrounded by nature at its finest.
Pontyclerc Farm was originally part of the Dynefwr Estate, 200 acres of mixed farming. The original farmhouse is a 12th century longhouse which was then converted to a barn when Pontyclerc Farm House was built in the early 1800s. The barn is now an office and book store for our companies Sigma Press UK which publishes books on UK walking, cycling and local history and Stobart Davies, a specialist bookseller and publisher of woodworking books.
Pontyclerc was also home to Pontyclerc Brickworks and the Pontyclerc Colliery which changed eventually to Pantyffynnon Colliery, the farm supplying fresh milk to all the miners. The Farm has been in the family for over six generations and we were delighted to fully refurbish the property into a high quality accommodation establishment in 2018 and offer guests luxury, comfort and relaxation in our elegant Farm House and surrounding grounds.
The Farm House currently comprises a first floor twin room and two double or family rooms, all with ensuites. By November, 2018 a ground floor disabled-access double room and wetroom will be completed. The bed and breakfast has its own driveway and car park. Common rooms include a beautiful, comfortable lounge which boasts ample seating, a small library of books and a collection of board and card games. Breakfast is served in the dining room and we will be delighted to offer a sun room opening onto the garden in late 2018. In the warm summer months, guests are very welcome to relax in the secluded garden, overlooking the beautiful mountain view.
Pontyclerc is home to two beautiful donkeys, Rosie and Jasmine;a busy hive of honey bees and a beautiful farm cat. We also do all we can for the environment by heating our buildings with our biomass boiler, using energy efficient lightbulbs and other energy saving measures, recycling, re-using newspapers for lighting the boiler and stuffing wet muddy boots! We are avid supporters of shopping locally and keen to be as environmentally friendly where possible to reduce food mileage and waste - this also helps our small, independent businesses and local economy to thrive.
