Anyone looking to holiday in the UK this autumn should consider exploring West Wales.
West Wales is a great holiday destination for anyone not keen on going abroad for an autumn getaway. It can save you a lot of money to simply holiday in the UK this autumn; not only does it mean that if you are from the UK you don’t need to worry about travel insurance - so long as you have got the correct car insurance quotes online – this expense is taken care of when travelling in the UK.
A couple of highly recommended locations to explore in West Wales this autumn include:
Located in the heart of the county is the small market town of Llandeilo. It has a beautiful single span stone bridge – the largest in Wales, and nearby Dinefwr Park and Castle are well worth a visit.
The ruins of Dinefwr Castle, the court of the medieval south Wales Kingdom of Deheubarth and powerbase for the powerful ’Lord Rhys,’ who accompanied Richard III at the battle of Bosworth is certainly something worth checking out, too.
Nearby also is The National Botanical Garden of Wales, which blends the design of Norman Foster’s Great Glasshouse with a careful restoration programme of the original walled gardens of the Middleton Estate.
North-east of Llandeilo and you are close to the beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park. The small market town of Llandovery, on the western edge of the National Park is worth stopping by for a coffee and a walk around the quaint boutique shops.
A great place to stay if you are in the vicinity is Cwmgwyn Farmhouse. This is a fantastic 17th century fully-working farm full of character. Guests have the opportunity to stay in self-catering accommodation or in the main B&B building itself. But wherever you stay – you can be assured of great views across the river Towy.
