Wales Carmarthenshire

Llandeilo and the Tywi Valley

The pretty market town of Llandeilo, with its narrow streets, painted Georgian houses and selection of boutiques, coffee shops and galleries is where farming feet meets country chic And for a relatively compact area, the surrounding Tywi Valley packs in a number of heritage and cultural attractions, set in some of the most breath-taking scenery in Wales. Perched on a 90-metre limestone crag, Carreg Cennen dominates the skyline for miles. Dryslwyn Castle sits on another rocky hill, forever associated with the princes of Deheubarth. The Elizabethan gardens of Aberglasney are a world away from the vast gardens of The National Botanic Garden, but just minutes apart. Plus, there are several National Trust properties in the area, like the Neo-Gothic Paxton’s Tower and Newton House, in the heart of the Dinefwr Estate.
