Often called 'the garden of Wales', this lush and verdant county is packed to the brim with ancient forests, golden beaches, majestic mountains and stunning castles. The county town is of course Carmarthen, which lays claim to the title of the oldest town in Wales. With its medieval castle presiding over the town, Carmarthen is a great place to shop, sightsee and eat with a diverse range of attractions and shops for locals and tourists alike.
Carmarthenshire is easily accessible thanks to the M4. The nearby Brecon Beacons add considerably to the attraction of the area as do a great assortment of farmers markets where local farmers and food producers provide plenty for you to get your teeth into, from regional cheeses and meats to homemade chunks of bara brith.
