The oldest University in Wales was founded by Bishop Burgess of St. David's in 1822. The University offers a mix of traditional and modern courses, and is pioneering Internet teaching. The extensive grounds are open to the public, while the Old Building houses the unique Founder's Library and the Chapel, a "must see" for visitors. The University adds a unique cosmopolitan atmosphere to the town.
Dylan Thomas lived in Plas Gelli, Talsarn, during the war, where he was inspired to write haunting poems such as "A Winter's Tale". He often stayed in the Castle Hotel, and spent hours walking the College grounds and singing with the rugby team. He was involved in a sensational trial in Lampeter Courtroom in March 1945.
Lampeter hosts many annual events, including Lampeter Shears, Lampeter Food Festival (both in July), Lampeter Stallion Show, Carnival, Lampeter in Bloom, Agricultural Show, Women in Tune Music Festival, Eisteddfod (all in August), Firework Display (November), Town and Gown Christmas fair, and Christmas Celebrations (both in December).

"This cottage was very small and isolated."
We loved many aspects of this cottage but it was tiny and a car was required for getting out to eat or shop. Beautiful views and we were lucky with the weather. … More
Thank you for the review. We are disappointed with your comments as the vast majority of our guests love the character of the property. The cottage is suitable for 2 people, having one bedroom, and this is made clear in the description, as is the location of the cottage and that a 'car is advisable'. But being under 2 miles to the nearest town, a wide range of amenities are accessible also on foot. That said, we are pleased you would recommend the cottage to a best friend and loved many aspects.
