4. Llyn Llech Owain Country Park
Llyn Llech Owain Country Park is set in 180 acres providing woodland walks and cycle tracks. At the heart of the park is the lake surrounded by peat bog. A board walk allows a safe route around the lake. Other facilities include a children’s play area, cafe and toilets.
5. Carmel Quarry
Follow the 2 kilometre Quarry Trail to the top for spectacular views of the surrounding countryside and back down to the only turlough in Britain. A turlough is a seasonal lake, with no streams running in or out, the lake is fed by water held in the limestone below. As the water level rises in winter the lake fills and it disappears again in most summers.
6. Cwm Rhaeadr
Cwm Rhaeadr or Valley of the Waterfalls near Cilycwm has a range of walking, mountain biking and horse riding routes. Our favourite is to follow the river to the base of the waterfall then take the smaller track to climb up to take a closer look. Good footwear and a good level of fitness is essential.
National Trust Dinefwr is an 800 acre estate on the edge of the beautiful small town of Llandeilo. Explore the parkland walks and take the track through the woods to Dinefwr castle and St Tyfi’s Church.
8. National Botanic Garden of Wales
