The stunning Gwenffrwd Dinas Nature Reserve is just 35 minutes from Llansadwrn, the wild and craggy hillsides are covered in heather and billberry and the river roars alongside you much of the way.
This is a gorgeous walk for fairly fit people, although the first section is easily accessed via boardwalk and is well worth an explore.
You can visit the cave that Twm Sion Cati hid out in in the 1500s. A highway man and conman of some repute, he stole from the rich but apparently didn’t pass it onto the poor.
2500 years ago these two hilltop diets were a thriving community. Garn Goch or red cairn was two Iron Age forts and the large fort is one of the biggest is Wales. Just across the valley from Llansadwrn these two forts are worth a visit and there is a pleasant circular walk.
The pretty town of Laugharne is on the stunning estuary which inspired Dylan Thomas to write so many of his famous works.
The town is steeped in history with its 12th century castle and connection with the Dylan Thomas legacy. There is also some lovely walking to be done in the area and the town has some lovely shops, restaurants and bars.
The fun and fast Cwm Rhaeadr mountain bike trail is about 30 minutes from Llansadwrn, much loved by locals for a quick evening bike ride/run/walk. It’s also a lovely walking area with some stunning views of extremely high waterfalls.
The wild mountain bike trails of Brechfa come highly recommended, with regular mountain bike enthusiasts raving about it. It is also gorgeous walking country with plunging and roaring rivers and tree clad hills, forest gardens and wildlife in abundance (you may even spot the illusive red squirrel which still hold on in this country).
There are two great pubs in the two villages at the start of the trails, Brechfa and Abergorlech. There is a fun playground in Abergorlech also.
If you have children there is also a Forest School happening monthly check out the Keepers Forest Facebook page for more information.
