About Tancastell

Tancastell, meaning under the castle, is a traditional Welsh smallholding set at the very end of a secluded lane in the village of Cross Inn. Packed into seven acres are a lake surrounded by woodland, an orchard, another wooded area and a babbling brook that runs right through the middle, all of which you are free to explore during your stay. There is also a large lawned area with a football goalpost and badminton net for your enjoyment.

Dogs are very welcome here, there is direct access onto a bridal/footpath for those who wish to wander a bit further. We do have ducks wandering around so please ensure your dogs are kept under control when exploring. Your cottage has its own fenced garden so you can relax knowing your dogs are safe and secure.

If you're looking for a beautiful and peaceful location for your next holiday or short break you can't go wrong in booking a stay at Tancastell.
