Carmarthenshire, one of the historic counties of Wales with Llanelli, Carmarthen, and Ammanford as its three largest towns. Carmarthenshire has been inhabited since prehistoric times as the county town was founded by the Romans and the region was part of the Principality of Deheubarth in the High Middle Ages. The county is mainly an agricultural county, apart from the southeastern part which at one time was heavily industrialised with coal mining, steel-making, and tin-plating.
Cwmberach Uchaf Farm covers 80 acres on the beautifully wild Black Mountain in the Brecon Beacons National Park. The tents are situated with amazing views over the Amman valley and the mountain. The combination of animals to meet is very special, with unusual breeds of sheep, beehives for delicious homegrown honey, goats, and lambs and piglets in the spring. Access to the mountain and a bridleway lies only a few metres behind the lodges.
Nearby, visit Carreg Cennen Castle, reached by a beautiful 5-mile walking route. Alternatively, there is the lovely market town of the River Towy, and beside it, Dinefwr Castle. The glacial lakes of Llyn y Fan Fach and Lyn y Fan Fawr make for a good day trip! Dinefwr Riding Centre offers riding lessons 3 miles from Cwmberach Uchaf from the farm.
Carmarthenshire, as a tourist destination, offers a wide range of outdoor activities. Much of the coast is fairly flat, it includes the Millennium Coastal Park, which extends for ten miles to the west of Llanelli; the National Wetlands Centre; a championship golf course; and the harbours of Burry Port and Pembrey. There are a number of medieval castles, hillforts, and standing stones that can be found in the county.
