1 Grab your purse Llan­deilo has many fash­ion and food shops. Stop for a Coal­town cof­fee and crois­sant in Gin­haus Deli or, for lo­cally made ice cream, pop into Heav­enly.

2 Raise a glass… To writer Dy­lan Thomas at The Brown’s B&B, Laugh­arne. The au­thor of Un­der Milk

Wood lived in the town for the last four years of his life and was a fix­ture in the bar here. You can also visit his Writ­ing Shed and Boathouse home.

3 Smell the flow­ers See the Na­tional Botanic Gar­den of Wales, near Lla­narth­ney. Home to over 8,000 dif­fer­ent plants in 560 acres, don’t miss the trop­i­cal But­ter­fly House – can you tell a tree nymph from a glass­wing?

4 Gasp in won­der There are amaz­ing views from 12th-cen­tury Car­reg Cen­nen Cas­tle. Perched on a cliff near the vil­lage of Trap, brave the spooky pas­sage­way and haunted un­der­ground cave!

Wrights Food Em­po­rium in Lla­narth­ney serves the Pork Belly Cubano, £8 – prob­a­bly the best sand­wich ever. 6 Walk off the calo­ries Go on the Llanst­ef­fan Coastal Walk, fea­tur­ing fab­u­lous beaches, a kids’ play­ground, a cas­tle and St An­thony’s Well with wa­ters that al­legedly cure ill­ness.
