Dinefwr Park

4 miles (6.5 km)

Explore the 12th-century Welsh castle, the historic house, the 18th-century landscaped park and the medieval deer park in this large park in Llandeilo. There's miles of nice footpaths taking you to ponds, woodland, a heronry and a number of interesting sculptures.
The park is located near to the edge of the Brecon Beacons where you can continue your walking. You could head to the nearby Carreg Cennen Castle which sits on an elevated limestoneprecipice with fabulous views over mountains of the park. Our circular walk from Llandeilo visits the castle and the ancient woodland at the nearby Tregeyb Wood nature reserve.
