Carmarthenshire

Carmarthenshire has natural scenic beauty, glorious long beaches, a fascinating history and is also home to the National Botanic Gardens of Wales, which could state its claim to be the ‘Garden of Wales’. In fact this region has a blend of both great coastal and countryside locations that makes it the ideal place for a self-catering cottage holiday in wales.

The National Botanic Gardens of Wales has the largest single-span glasshouse in the world with an unrivalled collection of plants from across the world. If you’re into gardening a trip to Aberglasney should also be on your agenda, here you can see perfectly restored 15th century gardens.

History plays a large part in the story of the region, so it almost goes without saying that ancient attractions are some of the biggest draws, for instance Carreg Cennen Castle which can be traced back to the 13th century. This romantic ruin offers a lovely walk up to its hillside location and amazing views. For more historical interest you could get along to the National Trust property at Dinefwr Castle and Park with its beautiful 12th century castle situated amongst a tranquil 800-acre park with wild deer and stunning flora and fauna.

For some gentle exercise visit the Millennium Coast Path, its 12 mile cycle way is perfect for family days out on the bike, with Pembrey Country Park at one end and the National Wetlands Centre at the other. Great views of the Burry estuary!

For more strenuous activity try walking Llyn Y Fan Fac, in the Black Mountains on the western edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park.

A great way to see the region is to hop onto the Heart of Wales Railway, which travels a route between Swansea and Shrewsbury. These steam locomotives travel through some of the most stunning scenery in Britain.

The Dylan Thomas Boathouse in Laugharne; the author’s very own holiday cottage in Carmarthenshire offers incredible views over the Tâf Estuary, so it’s not hard to see how Thomas could find so much inspiration from the area.

    With uninterrupted, stunning views and direct access to wonderful walks, Gwar Nant Cottage, renovated by the owners, is a very stylish holiday home lying in an enviable position within Rhandirmwyn, the small Carmarthenshire village with a big reputation. The garden and terrace of the cottage is a great place to relax and watch the varied visiting birds, and for cosy nights, the lounge with wood burning stove is the perfect place to be. The village, which is located in the Upper Tywi Valley boasts an award winning real ale pub with a reputation for great food, so good the Duchess of Cornwall has popped in for a drink as HRH Prince Charles has a country residence nearby.
    The local area is steeped in history and tales, one such being the legend of highwayman Twm Siôn Cati, who hid out in caves near the village. The county of Carmarthenshire, known as ’The Garden of Wales’ has become a big draw for walkers, cyclists, anglers and lovers of the outdoors and is the largest county in southern Wales, stretching from Carmarthen Bay in the south to the western Brecon Beacons and Cambrian Mountains in the north. It offers rich landscapes, gardens, ancient 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. Other places of interest nearby include National Trust Dolaucothi Goldmines (tours available) and the lakes of Llyn Brianne and Llyn-y-Fan Fach, the lake that gave rise to the Arthurian legend of the Lady of the Lake. Shop, pub and restaurant 100 yards.
