WALES | CYMRU
Each day I learn a new thing about this country, and what I enjoy the most is discovering new places and new people. Last month I traveled to Wales and I have to say that I've fallen in love with its landscapes, wildlife and people.
We stayed at the Gwarllwyn B&B near Llandovery, a lovely farm run by Debs & Bob. They looked after us like if we were their own family. The views from the traditional stone Welsh house are awesome. I've never been in a place that quiet and peaceful before. You can check out Gwarllwyn's website here.
Some of the places that I visited with my partner Ricardo and our doggie Kaalu were Llandovery, Llwyn-on Reservoir, Dinefwr Castle & Deer Park, Llyn Briane Reservoir, Tiwy Forest, Talley Abbey, Carreg Cennen Castle, Craig-y-nos Country Park and Sgwd Henrhyd.
Enjoy the pictures and feel free to comment bellow!
SUPPORT MY WORK
I literally jumped off the car when I saw this view. Situated in the Brecon Beacons National Park on the A470. Find it on Google Maps.
Owned by the Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales (free entry & dog friendly). Worth the visit just to enjoy the breathtaking views to the Tywi River. Find it on Google Maps.
DINEFWR DEER PARK
After visiting the Castle you can walk to the Deer Park (15 minutes walk, free entry, dogs not allowed). Wildlife, ponds, streams... beautiful place indeed. Find it on Google Maps.
LLYN BRIANNE RESERVOIR & TYWI FOREST
This man-made lake was constructed in the late 60s in order to control the flow in the River Tywi. We found some snow and so many places to take a brake, breathe and walk. You can find it on Google Maps.
You can find this interesting ruins in the town of Talley in Carmarthenshire (Free entry, dog friendly). Find the place on Google Maps.
CARREG CENNEN CASTLE
Carreg Cennen Castle is one of the few remaining privately owned Castles in Wales. The most interesting thing about this castle is that you can visit its cave (be sure you bring a torch or hire one at the ticket office). Adults £4.00 - Dog friendly. Find the castle on Google Maps.
It was closed when we tried to visit the reservoir but you can park the car to take some pictures of the lake.
CRAIG-Y-NOS COUNTRY PARK
This Victorian garden is huge. You will find woodlands, meadows, ponds, lazy lawns and rushing rivers in it (free entry, pay & display car park, dog friendly).
SGWD HENRHYD & NAN LLECH
Our last place to visit in Wales and I think which we enjoyed the most. We didn't come across a single person from the morning to the late afternoon. There's a path on the river side that takes you to Abercraft, a lovely little town. Walking down this path you can see other little waterfalls. Sgwd Henrhyd is the tallest waterfall in South Wales with a drop of 27 metres. The waterfall is reached after a steep walk down into the valley from the car park. You can find it on Google Maps.
Hope you enjoy the pictures as much as I do taking them!
