Mid Wales is a beautiful unexplored area of mountains, valleys, rivers cascading through deep gorges and quaint market towns steeped in ancient myths and legends. In contrast the green rolling countryside of Carmarthenshire (The garden of Wales) gives way to two vast, golden beaches at the mouth of the river Towy, Pembrey and Pendine.
Visit the many castles and follies, find out about Merlin, King Arthur, and our local legend Twm Sion Catti ( the Welsh Robin Hood). Or be active and enjoy fly fishing for sewin, (sea trout) and salmon, go pony trekking, mountain biking, kayaking, walking, and bird watching.
The Garden of Wales is the home to the National Botanical Garden of Wales, Aberglasney, Dinefwr Park and Castle, and Pembery Country Park.
The Boat House at Laugharne which is now a museum celebrates the life and work of our very own Dylan Thomas famous 20th century poet and writer of 'Under Milk Wood' and 'Do Not Go Gentle Into That Goodnight.'
The Brecon Beacons, The Cambrian Mountains, the blue flag beaches of Pendine and Pembery and famous poets and legends, what more could you ask for? Come and see for yourself.
Why not try;
Mountain biking and Cycling (local hire company)
Dinefwr Park and Castle and Newton House
Dolaucothi Gold Mines
Dan-Yr-Ogof National Showcaves
Pembrey Country Park and Beach
Numerous Golf Courses
Beautiful beaches of Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion
Cambrian Mountains and Elan Valley
Lovely country pubs with good beer and fantastic food
Farmers Markets and Llandovery Sheep Festival
Go Ape at Pembrey Country Park
Dry ski slope and and toboggan run.
There are too many attractions to list them all. Come and explore Secret Wales, you will not be dissapointed.
We are situated in the Upper Towy valley an area called 'Little Switerzerland,' by the locals. It is a gateway into the undiscovered Cambrian Mountains, where red kites glide on unseen thermals and vast open moorland and moutains drop down into tumbling mountain streams and gorges.
Explore the forests, valleys and shores of Llyn Brianne reservoir in utter solitude, no crowds, no queues, just clean mountain air, beautiful scenery and a feeling of peace and tranquillity.
Rhandirmwyn means valley of the minerals where lead used to be mined in the last century, the Dolaucothi Gold Mines are close by and you can take a fascinating underground tour or try your luck at panning for gold. Search for Twm Sion Catti's cave at the Dinas Bird Reserve, there is a walk round the reserve that follows the River Towy as it cascades over huge glacial boulders, it's spetacular and Twm's cave is hidden in the hillside.
If you crave excitement and an adrenalin rush then hurtling down the new mountain bike trail at Cwm Rhayder should suffice but for those who want to take in the beautiful scenery at a more leisurely pace then walks up the the waterfall have been described by some of our guests as a hidden fairy glen.
Llandovery market town is seven miles away and has a collection of pubs, shops and a heritage centre, this truly is a land of myths and legends and here you can learn about 'The Lady of the Lake' and the 'Physicians of Myddfai.'
Rhandirmwyn has a village shop and a local pub that serves good food and a selection of real ales, Cilycwm village, which lies in the opposite direction has a lovely country pub that serves delicious home cooked food and further along the valley towards the mountains is the small village of Ffarmers where the Drovers Arms serves excellent local welsh cuisine.
Come to Penrhyn to unwind, relax by the river, try your hand at fly fishing, trek across the mountains, speed down forestry trails on a mountain bike, or seek out ancient legends and explore castles and Celtic market towns.

"Lovely Barn, Beautiful area"
The barn was warm and homely with fabulous surrounding views of the countryside and river. The barn is very well equiped with everything you'd need for a self catering holiday and the owners are very helpful. The mostly open layout of the barn allows good social interaction when preparing meals and eating etc, plus the extra bathrooms and toilets come in handy for large groups.
The surronding countryside and stunning walks just a short drive away were magnificent and the river gorge following the river to the left of the barn was very impressive.
I would recommend this barn and area to anyone and would definitely visit again.
