This little Welsh market town is a gem in the county of Carmarthenshire where the beautiful peninsula of Pembrokeshire and West Wales is right on your doorstep. Our collection of cottages in Llandovery perfectly place you to explore this pretty town as well as the stunning surrounding area.

Llandovery boasts a rich history, which you can explore for yourself by visiting the Dolaucothi Gold Mines, the Norman remains of Llandovery Castle, and nearby mystical village of Myddfai. In the town itself, the pretty streets are lined with little shops and plenty of pubs and restaurants to try.

Situated on the western border of the Brecon Beacons National Park, Llandovery is a great base to enjoy outdoor activities including trekking in the Black Mountain, mountain biking in the Crychan Forest and fishing on the River Towy. Enjoy peaceful walks in the nearby Dinas RSPB Nature Reserve or take advantage of the photo opportunities at Llyn Brianne, the highest dam in Britain.

Red Kite Feeding Station

Look to the hills and you may spot a great acrobat of the sky, Brecon’s famous Red Kite. This magnificent bird was once close to extinction but amazingly there are now estimated to be more than 500 breeding pairs in the area. Experience the breath-taking sight of these majestic birds of prey soaring through the skies at the Red Kite feeding station in the nearby village of Llanddeusant. From the specially built hide you can see the diving birds compete naturally for food, sometimes more than 50 birds at a time!

For fun family days out, head to the beautiful Aberglasney House and Gardens or the National Botanic Garden of Wales with its tropical butterfly house and national nature reserve. Alternatively, delve underground at the National Showcaves Centre for Wales and be amazed by the fascinating formations found in the underground caves. A good time to visit Llandovery for families is in September when the town hosts its annual Llandovery Sheep Festival; children will love seeing live sheep racing in the street!

“Llandovery is a hidden gem full of history, spectacular countryside to explore and welcoming places to eat and drink”

Hop in the car and head off for the day to explore some of South Wales’ coastal gems; the sandy beaches and rugged cliff tops of The Gower Peninsula, Swansea, Mumbles, Camarthen or Laugharne, the home of the great Welsh poet and writer Dylan Thomas. Whether you’re an avid beachcomber, a wildlife watcher, interested in outdoor adventures or simply just want to relax on a beach and build a sandcastle, this stunning part of the coastline has something to offer everyone.

The nearby town of Llandeilo is a great place to go for a spot of retail therapy, a bite to eat in one of the welcoming delis, cafes and restaurants or to discover some local history in one of the magnificent surrounding castles.

Choose from one of our lovely Llandovery cottages to explore the spectacular Brecon Beacons and the West Wales peninsula.
