Local Area and Attractions
Situated in one of the most beautiful and unspoilt valleys in Wales - the Tywi - many of our guests tell us that they spend more time than they thought just relaxing in Caer Beili, spending quality time together and watching country life from the comfort of a chair. However, for the more adventurous there is plenty to see and do and despite our rural and peaceful location we are very centrally placed, easy to reach and an ideal spot from which to explore Mid, South and West Wales.
The quaint village of Cil-y-cwm which has a small friendly pub serving excellent food. The village street was once a drovers' road and the cobbled watercourses which used to be filled with water for cattle to drink can still be seen today. The village church has fifteenth century wall murals and a yew tree which is at least 1, 500 years old. The Methodist Chapel, built in 1740, was the first Methodist Chapel in Carmarthenshire.
The whole area, in the lower foothills of the Cambrian Mountains and on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park, is outstanding for walkers, bird watchers, photographers, artist and all country lovers. There are gentle strolls or more strenuous hikes from the cottage door including one to a magnificent waterfall. The area is a natural habitat for all kinds of wildlife and flora and it is common to see red kites, kestrels , sparrow hawks and many other birds. There are two RSPB Reserves - Dinas and Gwenffrwd. There are even red squirrels in the area.
