Llandovery

Llandovery is an ancient market town in a beautiful rural location, its name translates as ‘the church amidst the waters’, because of its location in a valley where the rivers Bran, Gwydderig, Towy and Bawddwr meet. It lies on the edge of The Brecon Beacons National Park and is perfect for enjoying an outdoor activity holiday straight from your very own cottage in Carmarthenshire!

The ruined Norman castle dominates the town, and you can learn all about its chequered history and that of the local area, at the Heritage Centre next door. The Llandovery Theatre stages an eclectic programme of event all year round including most suitably the annual sheep festival.

Many visitors stay in the area and use it as a convenient base to explore all the gorgeous Carmarthenshire countryside that encircles the town. The extremely scenic Brecon Beacons National Park is just to the east and is home to a wide variety of flora and fauna, and some truly superb walking routes. The Carmarthenshire coast and historical towns lies to the south for lovely, relaxing days out.

The whole area resonates with echoes from the past. A short distance away lays Llyn y Fan Fach, setting for the famous Arthurian legend of The Lady of the Lake. Also well worth a visit is the beautiful reservoir at Llyn Brianne, where the deep valley was once dominated by the lead mining industry.

    Ref: UKC335

    Opposite the majestic village church, this Grade II listed building is thought to have been constructed in the mid to late 19th century. It is part of a virtually intact and coherent group of houses at the centre of the pretty and tranquil village of Myddfai. It was originally the village post office and shop, as the name suggests, and has been in the owner’s family since 1921.

    The owner’s grandfather (who was the postmaster) and great grandfather were also the village blacksmiths, and the Old Smithy can still be seen in the village, identified by a horseshoe over the door.
    The Old Post Office shop front and doorway are still there today and inside the house, some of the shop shelving is still in use on the wall as a bookcase. The shop door has beautiful stained glass panels that create patterns on the walls when the evening sunlight passes through it. Outside, the small post box is still in use and is set within the wall of the house. The post office was finally closed in 1988, when the owner’s grandmother was no longer well enough to run it, but it has remained a cherished and charming family house and is now available for holidaymakers to enjoy and appreciate. Inside this cosy cottage there is a wood burner in the living room for homely nights, or the study offers the perfect place to sit and read or families may enjoy using the games console. The attractive sun room is the place to enjoy a morning coffee or evening glass of wine. Sitting here you can take in the spectacular views of the rolling countryside beyond the large enclosed lawned garden and patio. The property complies with the Visit Wales Cyclists and Walkers Schemes. These two awards are given to properties which go that extra mile to provide excellent facilities for guests. This means The Old Post Office has somewhere you can dry outdoor clothing, lock up your bikes, access a water point outside to clean your muddy boots and bikes and, essential for any adventure, a first aid kit.

    The village of Myddfai lies in the stunning Brecon Beacons National Park, and in the foothills of the Black Mountain. The Brecon Beacons National Park offers uncrowded roads to visit the historic towns and villages, and of course, the most spectacular scenery and opportunities for outdoor pursuits. It is also the first International Dark-Sky reserve in Wales. On a clear night in the Brecon Beacons, you can see the Milky Way, major constellations, bright nebulas and even meteor showers; enough to make anyone starry eyed. During the 13th century, Myddfai was frequented by physicians and medicinal remedies were created. Over the years, the stories of the Physicians of Myddfai have become bound up with the legend of Llyn y Fan Fach – the Lady of the Lake. You can learn all about this at the Myddfai Visitor Centre, which is situated just a few yards from The Old Post Office. Here you will also find a fascinating craft shop and a lovely café; the perfect place to relax whilst you learn about the legends.

    Just 3 miles away you will discover the ancient Carmarthenshire market town of Llandovery, with a wider selection of shops, cafés, pubs and restaurants, as well as the Heritage Centre giving an insight into the lives of the drovers who passed through the town. Visit the ruins of the 13th century Carreg Cennen Castle or the Red Kite Feeding Station at Llanddeusant, where daily feeding of these amazing birds takes place in the summer. The market town of Llandeilo is not too far away and here you will discover lots of independent boutique shops and eateries; the town is fast gaining a reputation as a foodies paradise. Also within easy reach are the National Trust Dolaucothi Gold Mines (tours available), Aberglasney Gardens and the National Botanic Garden of Wales with its great glass dome, perfect for a visit at any ti...

    The delightful village of Cilycwm is nestled in the beautiful Carmarthenshire countryside, a short drive from Llandovery. Cwm House, dating back to the 1700’s, sits in the village opposite the church and popular village pub. Records show that the house was once an inn on the drover’s route, where livestock including cattle, sheep, pigs and even geese were herded miles from their farms to markets as far away as London and the home counties. The original drovers gutters are still visible in the village today. The house was rebuilt in 1835 by a local carpenter and records show it was a dwelling and shop. It was sold to the Neuadd Fawr Estate in 1863 and its name was changed to Cwm House in the 20th Century. The listed property is a fine example of a 19th Century village house in the Georgian tradition with sash windows, stucco plinth and beams, but it has every modern comfort having been lovingly renovated. The owners who live very nearby, run a farm and they are pleased to offer stabling and grazing if required. There is a bridleway and a public footpath directly from the land at the rear of Cwm House as well as a large enclosed garden to enjoy.

    Carmarthenshire, the largest county in southern Wales, stretches from Carmarthen Bay in the south to the mountainous landscapes of the western Brecon Beacons and Cambrian Mountains in the north. It offers wide open spaces, wondrous gardens, ancient awe inspiring castles, wildlife and sandy beaches as well as market towns brimming with local produce, chic shopping and eateries. Llandeilo is one such town, less than 30 minutes drive away and the market town of Llandovery is just 10 minutes drive. HRH Prince Charles has a country residence nearby to Llandovery and it’s no wonder he chose this area, as the county is known as ’The Garden of Wales’ and is a haven for visitors looking to explore the traditions, culture and stories, discover the landscape which has become such a draw for walkers, cyclists, anglers (licence available locally) and lovers of the outdoors.
