Carmarthenshirear hen hi
Fab beaches and loads to see and do – this part of Wales is the ideal spot for a perfect family holiday…
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!
5 Sandwich time! 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.
