About this location
Carmarthenshire is known as the 'Garden of Wales' and it boasts truly diverse landscapes. From spectacular mountains, rolling landscapes, secluded ancient forests to the vast expanses of golden sandy beaches it has everything.
Lose yourself in the solitude of the vast green countryside, follow the course of picturesque rivers and visit the stunning locations of our castles. The river Towy is famous for its salmon and sea-trout fishing. There is a wealth of wildlife in the area, including the occasional red-kite.
People visit Pembrey Country Park for many different reasons, some to enjoy the freedom to wander around 202 hectares of glorious parkland and some to take advantage of one of the cleanest and nicest beaches in Wales. Included in the park are a dry ski slope, toboggan run, pitch and put golf course, crazy golf, cycle track (and bike hire), nature trail, minature railway and a new Go Ape (a climbing / adventure park).
After 3 years and a £76 million investment Carmarthen town has been re-developed to a stunning new blend of old eclectic traditional and new convenience contemporary shops including Europe's first Sony 3d digital cinema. The castle remains are a focal point and facilities have been improved for visitors. Merlin is said to have lived nearby as did King Arthur of the legend. Steeped in history and myth, Carmarthenshire is an ideal central location to explore the history and countryside of South West Wales.
This property is located in beautiful, open, rolling country at the southern edge of the Cambrian Mountain range on the outskirts of the village of Ffarmers, nestled in-between the market towns of Llandeilo, Llandovery and Lampeter in West Wales.
This renovated cottage is situated on a working farm with cattle, sheep and horses. The area is ideal for bird watching (with the Red Kite a major attraction); walking and trekking.
