Town and Country

Despite its rural setting, Myrtle Hill is within easy reach of the market towns of Llandeilo to the north (a 15 minute drive), and Carmarthen to the west (15 mins). The larger city of Swansea - the 'gateway to the Gower coast' - is a 30 minute drive to the east.

Once the royal capital of Wales, Llandeilo provides a relaxing opportunity to shop for gifts and browse the local art shops and galleries as well as some rather enticing boutiques. With a number of choice pubs, restaurants and tea rooms, and town-centre market each week, this is an ideal place to soak up the rural scene.

For a slightly quicker pace, Carmarthen - apparently the birthplace of the wizard Merlin - combines high-street names with local shops and some 60 (yes, sixty!) pubs. There is also a busy indoor market selling everything from local produce to antiques every Wednesday and Saturday and a farmers market once a month. There is plenty to do in and around the town (Cinema/Theatre, Heritage Centre and County museum), which befits its role as a busy rural centre and home to the United Counties Agricultural Show in August each year.

Carmarthen also marks the start of a fascinating journey towards the unspoilt coastline of South West Wales. The pretty coastal village of Llansteffan is within easy reach and offers fine views from the castle on the headland across the estuary towards Pembrey and the Gower beyond. Beyond the village of Laugharne - famous as the home of Dylan Thomas with its views across the Taf estuary - is the seaside town of Tenby. The unhurried charm of this beautiful place, with its pastel-painted houses and fish and chips, is a real jewel and not to be missed.
