Carmarthenshire region

Merlin Cottages are located in the Heart of Wales just 4 miles from the ancient town of Llandovery. The town is famous for having one of the first banks in the UK for the drovers who took vast herds of livestock from Wales to London. It is the gateway to the Western Brecon Beacons National Park with great motoring, cycling and walking on its peaceful and tranquil roads. The scenery in all directions is stunning with wonderful unpolluted night skies. The area is surrounded by quaint towns steeped in history including Brecon, Llandeilo, Carmarthen and Lampeter.


Merlin Cottages has the Crychan Forest on its doorstep with miles of great trails for walkers and cyclists alike.
