Cwmdu is a great place to visit. The glorious Carmarthenshire countryside is largely undiscovered by tourists so queues are rare and viewpoints uncrowded. For your sat. nav. our postcode is SA19 7DY.

There are several places to stay locally with many footpaths, quiet lanes and tracks in and around the village, with footpaths winding round the valley.

For days out try the National Trust properties at Dinefwr and Dolaucothi, Aberglasney and the National Botanic Garden of Wales, and miles of great mountain biking trails in  Brechfa Forest.

If you want to leave the car in the car park, try the bus service into Llandeilo or Carmarthen to browse the great selection of shops there. There are stations on the  Heart of Wales line in Llandeilo, Llangadog and Llandovery so you can go down to Swansea or up to Shrewsbury, taking in the great views.

      Yes – with a but…..if food is being served in the public bar on a Saturday night (and this is only when it’s really busy) we ask that dogs are not brought into the bar then as it’s so small.

      There are several good walking routes from Cwmdu ranging from a gentle 1 mile walk around the village to 5-6 miles walks in the surrounding hills and beyond. There are several well signposted footpaths around the village and the valley and details of some of the walks can be had from the shop.

    Are there busses leaving from Cwmdu regularly for different places? We are 3 visitors coming without a car. Also where is the closest train station? We are flying in from Cardif or Bristol in June.
