During the day, visit some of the local attractions - Carreg Cennen castle, Aberglasney Gardens, the National Botanic Gardens of Wales, Dinefwr Park - or take advantage of local walking and cycling paths. Alternatively, walk to the ancient church at Llansadwrn or explore the farm and woodlands. On a wet day, swimming is accessible locally. Our excellent landlord Cliff at the Sexton Arms will provide you with evening entertainment in the form of pool, darts, occasional quizzes, as well as dinner and fine Welsh ale.
Our local shopping centers are Llandeilo (8 miles) and Llandovery (6 miles) which offer a range of arts and crafts shops, cafés, restaurants and a rich history. Meanwhile, Carmarthen (20 miles), the famed birth town of Merlin, provides a market, cinema, and a selection of big-brand shops. It is close to the beach and local attractions such as Dylan Thomas' boathouse in Laugharne. Within reach for a day trip, Swansea Bay, Mumbles and the Gower, made fashionable by Lloyd George, offers a chance to discover the UK's first designated area of outstanding natural beauty.
