Nestled in the spectacular Cothi Valley, the small Welsh village of Pumsaint, also spelt Pumpsaint meaning five saints, is in a part of Wales which is almost undiscovered by visitors and is the perfect location for walkers, cyclists and birdwatchers. After a great day out, the village pub offers both drinks and food and is a place to meet up with the locals to find out a bit more about this delightful location. Visit the Red Kite centre or the nearby Dolaucothi Gold Mines, which offers a unique insight into the ancient mining in the area and are truly memorable for all ages. The riding school nearby offers a chance to enjoy the superb countryside from a different perspective, and why not try a spot of fishing, visit the Brianne Dam or the Botanical Gardens. Alternatively, venture to the West Wales coast for sandy beaches and the famous coastal path. A wonderful area of Wales to visit.
