    What a lovely day out we walked up to the castle through a bluebell carpeted woodland for amazing views then to the house where we had a truly delightful tour of the property by Guide Susan, she brought such enthusiasm and amusing stories of the property we had just the best time, thank you very much. We finished with a walk in the deer park and a cup of tea from the cafe, a full day out, fully recommended.

    Anhygoel. This is a beautiful place to visit. As you drive to it it really looks like Weathertop from The Lord of the Rings, it's just stunning in any weather. Location is a 5 minute drive from Llandeilo (another beautiful place). People not used to rural roads should be careful as they go, lots of twists, turns and tractors. Plenty of parking. The farm is interesting to look at old equipment. The shop has lots of Welsh gifts and the cafe has delicious hot and cold food, there are places to sit in a beautiful dining hall with toilets. The walk to the castle is steep! Comfy, grippy shoes are recommended. The views are absolutely stunning in every direction. Make sure you go down to the cave (yr Ogof). It has some seriously steep steps, low ceiling and some slippery surfaces, and you will need a torch (my phone torch was fine). But for creepy factor it's amazing! People have carved names and dates into the chamber at the end, quite interesting to look at. Wouldn't recommend going down there for people with mobility issues, people who have claustrophobia or if you've recently watched The Descent. Otherwise walking through the castle was wonderful. The staff in the cafe were lovely and Welsh speakers. Costs about £6 to go up to the castle.

    This is a real chunk of history - the place was attacked and destroyed by knights of old, using a massive catapult. Look for the site where the catapult hurled cocks at the walls! You can still see where the walls crumbled. This isn’t Disney - it’s the real thing!
    From the old walls you can see down valley to the other castles in a great defensive line stretching miles! What a place!

    Wednesday 27th April 2022, our first visit to Talley abbey – much to my shame as I have known of it for very many years. The ruins of this 12th century abbey are located in the most tranquil and picturesque of places. We visited the small, pretty adjacent church and chatted to several locals who were full of information about the history of the area. Had tea & coffee and biscuits in the church hall – all on a self-service honesty box system.
    There are two large lakes nearby and several marked woodland walks but we spent most of our time sitting in peace listening to the birdsong – there are not many places where you can do that these days.

    The estate is very large and has two main buildings; Newton House (maintained by the National Trust) and Dinefwr Castle (maintained by CADW). There is ample parking on the site as well. You can spend a good amount of time here exploring and seeing everything that is present here.

    This castle is within the Dinefwr Estate (maintained by the National Trust) with the castle itself maintained by CADW. The castle is situated on a hill and offers very spectacular views especially when you climb some of the towers.

    This place was a little hard to find but well worth it. The walk is not too strenuous and well worth it for the views at the top. The iron age fort was not too much to look at but the views were.

    I was quite excited to take my grandchildren to where I had taken their Dad as a child as the place has not long reopened . Although the house is sadly in disrepair, the grounds are being returned to previous visits....the new playground and cafe were very welcome...my visit was on 19th of August....however I would like to warn visitors that although I paid the parking fee of £2.50 and spent 2 hours there, today I find a fine for non payment of parking.waiting for me after work... £60 if paid immediately, or rising to £100!.. fortunately I still have the ticket and I have apealed to parking eye...hopefully I won't be charged.....added to this the lady in the cafe offered me discount on my coffee if I presented the ticket to her....thankfully I didn't want you go back to the car for it....so please visit this lovely place but keep your parking tickets..just in case...this has spoilt my experience

    Looks lovely on the inside and out and has free and easy parking. Once inside, there is a corridor leading to a garden centre and cafe, and other corridors leading off to other rooms full of antiques. The jewellery, ceramics and such are mostly held in clear glass cases which you need to ask the person working there to unlock for a closer look. There is all the antiques you could ever want here, from old furniture to retro toys, beautiful china and everything else. On my visit I bought a ceramic cat statue which has been loved ever since. In fact it is sitting on my bedside table right now! Everything in there is in great condition and everything is unique. All in all, a great shop. 10/10.

    It is one of my favourite spots in the area, hidden away in Castle Woods and with amazing views of the sweeping meadows. Pretty little church in need of care and attention. Pity you can't go inside.The church is slowly turning to ruin, , just like a small graveyard which surrounds it . A little poignant place to stop while enjoying a lovely woodland walk. Not to forget you can spot the castle from here, too. Well worth a visit.

    As a lover of quality real cask ale I set out to find The White Horse in Llandeilo. I had heard that it served excellent beers brewed by the Evan Evans Brewery situated in that same town and I was determined to see for myself. I was not to be disappointed. The landlady was friendly and was only too willing to tell me of the history surrounding the pub and the beers that were on sale, not to mention the local places of interest. The pub is owned by the Cawdor Hotel that is situated just across the road. I tried the Warrior Ale first of all and this was a full bodied, malty ale with a creamy head, an absolute delight which went down a treat. Another customer arrived and ordered the Warrior Ale and quaffed it with the same enthusiasm that I had. This was an excellent drink for that Autumn/Winter outing. I then tried the CWRU Ale. Again this was in excellent condition, a little lighter in character and a light hoppy flavour, just the job for a general drinking session at whatever the time of day or season of the year. It must be my age but my own preference was for the Warrior. However I have no trouble in recommending either the Warrior or the CWRU. It just goes to show you can still find quality beers and quality company if you look hard enough.

    Thanks are very much due to Andy for his organisation of the day. His delivery of the information and facts was fantastic. He obviously has a love of nature and is willing to impart that feeling to others. It's also great to be able to ask questions and get immediate feedback.
