Peaceful and unspoilt Carmarthenshire has some beautiful scenery, fantastic beaches and historic towns.
The region is packed with ancient castles, from the absolutely breathtaking ruins of Carreg Cennen perched on sheer cliffs, to the beautiful coastal fortresses of Llansteffan and Laugharne. There are attractive towns and villages with a wealth of historic houses and other attractions.
The Carmarthenshire countryside is often lovely and remote, containing some of the more unexplored western parts of the Brecon Beacons National Park and the forest Fawr Geopark with its wild upland scenery. This includes the rugged Black Mountain with its links to mysterious Celtic and Arthurian legend. To the north are the Cambrian mountains.
Known as the Garden of Wales, Carmarthenshire also has a rural flavour and rolling green hills. Alongside the natural beauty are spectacular man-made gardens such as Aberglasney and the National Botantic Gardens, and some great country parks.
The coastline has many wide sandy beaches and estuarine habitats. Don't miss Pendine Sands where Blue Bird set the world land speed record in the 1920s.
