About the neighbourhood
Cross Hands is a great base to explore South Wales, just at the end of the M4 motorway you have easy access to Llanelli, Swansea (and on to Cardiff) and Carmarthen right through to west Wales's beautiful coastline. A short drive away (you could walk it as it is 1-2 miles with pavement) is the Co-Op supermarket, Leekes department store, Home bargains, Farm Foods, McDonalds, KFC, Local Pizza shop, Fish & Chip shop, hair dressers, florist, pub, pharmacy etc. 24hr Tesco can be found in Carmarthen - a 15 min drive away for any emergencies. The road which the property is on was was closed off a fair few years ago therefore it is now a dead end road and very quiet, a mile away from the busier area but close enough to have everything you need
