Comfortable Big Cottage, near Llandovery (HENLLBR)

Henllys is one our most Eco-friendly and "Green" houses sleeping eight visitors in 4 lovely bedrooms with three bathrooms - two en-suite. With Table Football and an enormous choice of Board Games. This inspired rebuild of the 17th century Henllys Lodge has an interesting swooping curve at the back of the building which makes for soft sweeping rounded lines in the kitchen and bedrooms above.

This pretty town is surrounded by rivers running along the valley, the heritage centre is worth a visit and the Old Printing Office is ideal for picking up local gifts. Just a short walk from the town centre are the ruins of the Llandovery Castle, easily accessible and with views overlooking the River Towy.

On the Dolaucothi estate there are marked trails through the woods and parkland, for those brave enough you can also explore the gold mines and take an underground tour of the Roman tunnels. The ruins are Talley Abbey are an interesting visit, and close by there is a lake and choice of several walks through the forest. Crychan Forest also welcomes walkers, cyclists and horse riding, throughout the year there are various organised events such as motor rallies and mountain biking.

In the heart of mid Wales is the Gwenffrwd-Dinas nature reserve, set in a valley the nature trail is a lovely way to spend a few hours spotting the local wildlife and rare birds. Cwm-Rhaeadr forest is also a great spot for walks. On site is a picnic area and mountain biking trails.

Carmarthenshire

The county of Carmarthenshire is known to many as the Garden of Wales. Stretching from Amroth to Llanelli the county enjoys over 50 miles of coastline, and reaches inland through the beautiful Welsh countryside to include the western area of the Brecon Beacons. Carmarthenshire is home to many attractions for the whole family to enjoy. The expansive countryside lends itself to walking and cyclists with so much to explore, and golf is also a popular pastime in this neck of the woods.  

The 568 acre National Botanic Gardens of Wales are in Carmarthen, showcasing varieties from around the world; its piece de resistance being the fantastic Great Glasshouse. The Dolaucothi Gold Mines in Llandeilo offer guided tours of the mines that date back to the Romans, and you can also try your hand at panning for gold! Wales was home to the great anglo-welsh writer Dylan Thomas, and the Boathouse Heritage Centre in Laugharne was where he spent the last few years of his life.   The country town of Carmarthen, located in the river Towy is one of the oldest welsh town, and some claim it to be the birthplace of the wizard Merlin! The mining town of Lanelli is actually the largest settlement however, situated on the Loughor Estuary, near the vast and beautiful Pembray Country Park and Forest. 

West Wales

This region includes Swansea which is the second largest city in Wales, also in the bay are Mumbles and Gower, both with pretty waterfronts ideal for a seaside holiday. Cefn Sidan is the longest beach in Wales with stunning views out across North Gower, and just inland is Pembrey Country Park. The Carmarthenshire region has such a fantastic selection of beaches and gardens; it is often referred to as the Garden of Wales and is home to the National Botanic Gardens and just borders the Brecon Beacons National Park. The long stretches of beach are particularly popular with visitors seeking a surfing or sailing holiday.

Pembrokeshire is the only coastal national park in Britain, with dramatic seaside paths and hidden coves to discover. There are also plenty of unspoilt ports and market towns along the way. The park also just touches on the Preseli Mountains, this wild heath and moorland is just perfect for walking opportunities and those who prefer an inland trek away from the coast.

Being surrounded on three sides by sea, this is a foodie haven with numerous festivals taking place all year round and fresh produce markets such as the Beer & Cider festival at Haverfordwest Castle and the quirky Really Wild Food festival.
