The area is a paradise for walkers or cyclists with Abergorlech and Brechfa Forest very nearby. There is a series of signposted walks, or for cycling enthusiasts, there is a beautiful, picturesque forest, with a range of trails for all abilities.

A 10-minute drive will bring you to the fascinating National Trust gold mines of Dolaucothi. These unique gold mines are set amidst wooded hillsides that overlook the beautiful Cothi Valley. 2,000 years ago, the powerful Romans left behind a glimpse of gold-mining methods. The harsh mining environment continued on into the 20th century and now guided tours take you back to experience the conditions of the Roman, Victorian and 1930s underground workings. See and hear the mine machinery or have a go at gold panning and take the opportunity to experience the frustrations of searching for real gold!
Less than 3 miles away, set in beautiful hills, at the head of the Talley Lakes, visit the haunting ruins of Talley Abbey. The abbey was unique in Wales in that it was founded for the monastic order of the Premonstratensians, or White Canons.
A 20-minute drive will bring you to the Georgian market town of Llandeilo with an array of independent shops, cafés, pubs and restaurants, including an award-winning chocolatier and ice cream shop!
