The region has several castles that are open to the public:
The spectacular Carreg Cennen sits high on a rocky crag with magnificent views of the Black Mountain and Towy Valley. The dark cave beneath the castle is worth exploring too.
Dinefwr Castle, a 20 minute drive, dates from the 9th century and is considered one of the most important castles in Wales. The castle is in the grounds of Dinefwr Park, also home to Newton House. The Park is a beautiful place for an afternoon stroll. Watch out for the many deer. There are events held within the park from March to November.
The ancient gardens of Aberglasney are delightful. In a few hours you can discover its pools, cloister walk and ancient Yew tunnel as well as many rare plants.
The National Botanic Gardens of Wales boast numerous attractions including the world's largest single span greenhouse, a Mediterranean garden, and the Wallace garden honouring famous Welsh botanist Alfred Russell Wallace.
Dinefwr Park is an 18th century landscaped park with nature reserve, bog wood and deer park surrounding the carefully restored Newton House. Home to the ancient herd of Dinefwr White Park cattle.
Although it might feel like you're in the middle of nowhere, there are beautiful beaches 1 hour away, both to the West and South.
The Upper Towy Valley, surrounded by the Cambrian mountains and only 40 mins drive from the Brecon Beacons has many opportunities for walkers, mountain bikers and those of an outdoors disposition.
It all starts as soon as you step outside. There are stunning walks in every direction - or drive to the Llyn Brianne reservoir and start from there. You can even canoe or kayak on the river at the end of the drive.
There is a mountain bike trail at Cwm Rhaeadr. Also an all ability (pushchair and wheelchair friendly) walk It's possible to go horse riding along the many bridle paths that are nearby.
The Dinas Nature Reserve has a lovely circular walk among the waterfalls of the upper Towy valley. Run by the RSPB it's a fantastic place for bird watchers and it seems also Welsh fugitives. Legend has it that Twm Sion Cati, the Welsh outlaw, hid in the caves here. There's also a Red Kite feeding station nearby.
In the surrounding area there are many old lead and gold mines, drovers trails and ancient shelters waiting to be discovered on long walks.
