We’ve pulled together some of our favourite walks within driving distance which we know you’ll thoroughly enjoy.
Carreg Cennen Castle
Length 1.1 km - Elevation gain 48 m - Route type: Out & Back
Carreg Cennen Castle near Llandeilo Wales. Spectacular setting with fantastic views across the west side of the Brecon Beacons with the Beacon Way passing next to this stunning castle. There is an entrance fee to enter the castle and it is closed after dark, or you may wish to admire it from the outside and take it in its natural setting and how incredible a fear of architecture it must have been to construct such a building.
Carreg Cennen Castle Circular
Length 7.7 km - Elevation gain 317 m - Route type: Circular
An excellent walk! Very easy to follow and to be trekking through great for dogs if you don’t mind keeping them on the lead as there are sheep everywhere! Very up and down so reasonably challenging. Maybe not one for a wet day as the tracks may become a bit slippery. The views of the exceptional castle and the Brecon Beacons are truly magnificent.
Enjoy reconnecting with nature!
Dinefwr Castle Circular
Length 3.9 km - Elevation gain 96 m - Route type: Circular
There are multiple trail options here. The trail starts at Newton house where you can experience a piece of history. As you walk around the woodland you will see an old ice house and wooden sculptures and carvings hidden in the woods. As you leave the forest you will walk across the pond of reflections and across the bog boardwalk. You can cross a bluebell meadow in the castle woods and climb up to Dinefwr castle to see fantastic views.
This is a local gem.
