The West Wales/Pembrokeshire region
West Wales is a beautiful region which boasts lush rural landscapes, some of the largest stretches of golden sand in Wales and the rugged foothills of Brecon Beacons. Here you can enjoy award-winning beaches, spectacular walking, mountain biking routes, canoeing and much more.
Go dolphin spotting in New Quay, visit exotic animals at Borth Animalarium, bring your taste buds alive at the Chocolate Farm or give in to temptation at the Welsh Gold Centre. West Wales offers all the ingredients for a fun holiday, with activities such as go-carting, skiing, and tobogganing also adding to the mix.
Enjoy the region's rich heritage, Welsh culture and language (spoken by over 50% of the region's residents). From ancient castles to the town where Dylan Thomas "got off the bus and never got on again". From Aberystwyth Arts Centre to watching the Scarlets take on Europe's best rugby teams, to the National Botanic Garden and Ffos Las Racecourse. A holiday in West Wales will give you great experiences and amazing memories.
Hafan Myrddin is a detached house, set in its own impressive grounds. Situated approximately 2 miles from Llandovery, (a market town with all amenities including banks, post office, restaurants, and supermarkets) and approximately 2 miles from Cilycwm, (a smaller village with a local pub serving good food). Llandeilo is about 12 miles away and has more upmarket shops and restaurants. Brecon is 20 miles away.
The house is on the western edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Carmarthenshire has fantastic landscapes and lots to see and do and is known as 'the Garden of Wales'. There are gardens and nature parks, castles, houses, forests and hills to look at and explore, either on foot, by bike or car.
Llandovery is a traditional Welsh market town in the Upper Towy (Twyi) valley, bounded by three rivers. Its name means 'church amidst the waters'. It has a historical heritage dating back to Roman times, was an important drovers’ town and it has ruins of a Norman castle and also churches and some fine Georgian houses. Close by are Cilycwm, Rhandirmawn and Llyn Brianne Reservoir which are beautiful places to walk, cycle or drive.
Myddfai (approx 3 miles away) is now the Welsh residence of Prince Charles, Prince of Wales. The 'Physicians of Myddfai' from medieval times became renowned for herbal remedies and they are also associated with the local legend of the Lady of the Lake Llyn-y-Fan Fach. The house is at the western edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park, an area of special landscape, wildlife and cultural heritage, and Fforest Fawr Geopark, the area designated in 2005 by UNESCO because of its outstanding geological heritage. The 'Heart of Wales' Railway line offers the opportunity to see some spectacular scenery including the Cynghordy Viaduct.
There are also many castles - in Llandeilo there’s Dinefyr Castle - and our favourite - Carreg Cennen Castle - one of the most dramatic fortresses on top of a limestone crag and with fantastic views. Aberglasney Gardens and the National Botanic Gardens of Wales are essential visits for all those who love gardens. Dolaucothi Roman Gold Mines (National Trust), the only Roman goldmine in Wales, is another fascinating visit for all those interested in history.
