Llyn y Fan Fach

Found in the western half of the Brecon Beacons National Park, Llangadog is nestled within the hills of the Towy Valley and is one of the largest villages in this quiet corner of Wales.

Boasting great views towards one of the Brecon Beacons’ most spectacular mountain ranges, the Black Mountain, Llangadog is a traditional Welsh village which sits next to the River Towy. With its own village shop, family butchers and post office, as well as a great choice of places to eat locally, this delightful village has everything you need to enjoy a countryside holiday on the doorstep.

Being in such a rural location, life in Llangadog has been centred around agriculture for centuries, with the local area being West Wales’ centre for dairy until the 1990s. Agricultural life is still celebrated annually at the Llangagdog Show, with livestock judging, showjumping and dog shows among the things to see on offer.

One of Llangadog’s main attractions is its close proximity to the Brecon Beacons, lying just a few miles west of the boundary. The Black Mountain range straddles the western half of the National Park, with the peaks formed from sandstone and limestone. Two mesmerising glacial lakes, Llyn y Fan Fawr and Llyn y Fan Fach, can also be found amongst the towering peaks. The spectacular views and challenging climbs on offer make this area perfect for walking holidays, and for those looking to really get away from it all.

Two neighbouring villages also make up Llangadog’s community: Capel Gwynfe and Bethlehem. Capel Gwynfe lies three miles to the south, and is a small village with an industrial past and a picturesque church. Nearby Bethlehem is overlooked by the impressive Iron Age hill fort of Garn Goch, the remains of a settlement built more than 2500 years ago.

Llangadog’s small selection of country pubs are great for relaxing in and whiling away the evening with some food and drink. The Goose and Cuckoo, The Red Lion and the Telegraph Inn can all be found within the village, each offering a variety of beers, ales and wines alongside their lunch and dinner menus.
