The West Wales/Pembrokeshire region
Set in the heart of an idyllic rural setting of the Towy valley, Parc y Brenin is an ideal place to holiday whatever your interests. The market town of Llandeilo, which is about 5 miles away, is the reputed 'slow food' capital of Wales, a traditional pretty market town with narrow streets and historic buildings, a good selection of individually owned boutiques eateries, crafts and antique shops. 'Y Polyn' is the AA restaurant of the year for Wales 2009-2010, and has two AA Rosettes and an Egon Ronay Star, and only a 15 min drive away.
Carmarthen which is about 10 miles away is thought to be the oldest town in Wales and the birthplace of Merlin of Arthurian legend, has a large market specializing in selling fresh local produce and the usual supermarkets. Many of its smaller shops specialize in quality goods.
Go to Carmarthen or Llandeilo on market day and hear Welsh spoken in the streets and shops. Visit Aberglasney Gardens (the garden lost in time) and the National Botanic Garden of Wales with its Great Glasshouse or just marvel at the beauty of the scenery. The Towy valley has castles, gardens, wildlife, small towns and beautiful scenery but is also within easy reach of the breath-taking scenery of the Brecon Beacons National Park, the beaches of Pembrokeshire and the Gower Peninsula.
Walking, mountain biking, horse riding, golfing, quad biking, sea and river fishing bird and wildlife watching to name but a few, and not to forget - relaxing.
We are close the Gardens of Aberglasney and The National Botanic Gardens.
There are numerous castles to visit within a short distance including Carreg Cennon, Dryslwyn, Dinefwr Park and castle and Newton House (National Trust), Llanstephan and Talley Abbey.
We are located within easy driving distance of the spectacular heritage coastline and beaches of Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire, which even in summer are little populated.
The mountains can be seen from around the house and offer spectacular walking and scenic drives. About 45 minutes away is the Lynn Brianne Dam, with its pine forests and lakes. The Brecon Beacons are about an hour away where you will also find the magnificent Welsh Show Caves.
There are three award winning caves including the magnificent Cathedral Cave with its lake and two cascading waterfalls. Within the complex you can enjoy one of the world's largest dinosaur parks and an Iron Age Farm, which also houses shire horses among its other animals. There is also a mountain railway, driven by steam locomotives, which weaves its way across the mountains and valleys. Other railway journeys are also on offer and all give the opportunity to enjoy the dramatic scenery.
The Roman Goldmines - These are owned by the National Trust and are well worth a visit. Here you can try your hand at gold panning, enjoy a guided tour of the mines or treat yourself to a piece of beautiful Welsh Gold jewellery. Distance from the house is approximately 15 miles.
