Carmarthenshire - a Surprise Around Every Corner...

Visit Carmarthenshire, in the heart of South West Wales, and discover a beautiful county of great contrasts. At every turn, you’ll be surprised to encounter such different landscapes, from breath-taking mountains to vast golden beaches, peaceful green valleys as well as bustling market towns.

The scenery may change as you travel around Carmarthenshire, but what will stay the same wherever you go is the ‘croeso cynnes’ (warm welcome) that we pride ourselves in giving those who visit.

Explore Carmarthenshire

Our stunning landscapes and scenery offer the perfect backdrop for discovering all there is to see and do here in our corner of Wales. From the idyllic coastline of Carmarthen Bay in the west, the beautiful Brechfa Forest at our centre, to the majestic mountains of Brecon Beacons National Park in the east - and all of the wonderful places you’ll find in between.

Follow in the footsteps of Welsh Princes at our ancient castles; discover our historic towns – including Laugharne, the coastal town which inspired much of the work of Dylan Thomas, the world renowned poet; and explore our glorious gardens – the reason that we’re often referred to as ‘The Garden of Wales’.

And if you’re after something more energetic, then we have plenty of options for you to try. Pull on your boots to go hiking on the Black Mountain or grab your bike to go mountain biking in the Crychan Forest. Gallop along Pendine Sands on horse back or canoe through the white water of the River Teifi. Whichever activity you choose, you’ll enjoy it whilst surrounded by our stunning scenery.

We’re nestled between Pembrokeshire and the Gower Peninsula, making Carmarthenshire the perfect base to explore the whole of South West Wales. You’ll reach us within just an hour’s drive along the M4 from Cardiff, Wales’ capital city and only three hours from London. It’s ever so easy for you to get here…
