Llandovery, The Brecon Beacons and Carmarthenshire
Perhaps it is no accident that HRH Prince of Wales has chosen, for his Welsh home, a property not far from Y Neuadd in a village near our historical local market town of Llandovery.
Llandovery owes it name and legacy to the drovers who would congregate with their livestock (cattle, geese and sheep) on their way to the lucrative markets in England. The town square and it’s impressive clock tower hosts a covered market.
Llandovery today is the ideal touring centre, handily placed on the A40 (London to Carmarthen road) approx 30 mins from the M4. It lies on the River Towy between the rugged scenery of the Brecon Beacons and the Upper Tywi valley in the foothills of the Cambrian Mountains.
A natural gateway to the West Wales, via Carmarthen or Mid and North Wales via Lampeter or Builth Wells, Llandovery is well populated with interesting independent shops, cafes and restaurants . It is served by a railway station with trains to Shrewsbury and Swansea and all points between on the popular and scenic Heart of Wales line.
Nearby are plenty of facilities for activities including Golf, Fishing, shooting, archery, riding, bird watching and other pursuits.
