Also try the traditional Welsh pub The Tafarn Sinc Rosebush (01437 532214) – good for meat-eaters. The Bont Pub at Llanglyden (01994 419575) does Sunday lunches.

Family Friendly

There’s a small river in the woodland at the bottom of the site. And don’t get kicked by a milking cow either.

Getting There

Turn right off the A40 onto the A478 and go through Llandissilio. Look out for the Bush Inn at the end of Llandissilio on the right-hand side. About a mile on look out for a left-hand turning signposted ‘Llanycefn’. Follow until you come to a 5-road junction. Take the 3rd lane off this junction, keeping the yellow house to your right. Next look for a sign for ‘Tir Bach’ on a telegraph pole. Follow this lane until you see a thatched cottage on your left; Penhros Cottage. Tir Bach is opposite on the right.

Take a train to Swansea, then another to Llandovery. The campsite is a 10-minute walk, or there is a bus that stops at the supermarket 2 minutes from the site.
