Find Holidays in Carmarthen
Perfect for… beach days in Carmarthen Bay, countryside jaunts and unearthing local cultural heritage
Overlooking the gentle waters of the River Tywi, the town of Carmarthen is a prime location for discovering everything South West Wales has to offer. The town is only a short drive from the vast and dramatic landscapes of the Brecon Beacons National Park, and the many sandy beaches of Carmarthen Bay are only a stone’s throw away.
The nearby estuary village of Laugharne was immortalised in the works of its famous poet resident, Dylan Thomas, who captured the essence of its coastal community in his poetry. History lovers will be head over heels with a holiday in Carmarthen; not only does it have its very own ancient castle, there are also a further eight castles in the local area, making this the perfect spot for discovering the area’s romantic past.
Why not get back to nature during your stay, too, with a visit to the National Botanic Garden of Wales or the beautiful gardens of Aberglasney?
