There are several excellent walks directly from the campsite (bring an OS map to make the most of the area). These include a 40-minute stroll up to the ruin of Talley Abbey and a jaunt around Talley Lakes and Nature Reserve. Dinefwr Castle and Carreg Cennen Castle (01558 822291) are both less than 30 minutes away by car and the National Botanic Gardens of Wales (01558 667149) are also 30 minutes away. For something a little more high-octane, mountain biking in Brechfa Forest offers trails for various levels of ability – including some serious stuff for the pros!

Hamper options for guests filled with local produce are available. The pub is open Wednesday–Saturday, with food served on Saturdays. Beer is mainly supplied from the Llandeilo based Evan Evans brewery with a range of award winning ales and there are guest ales from other local breweries on occasions as well as a great selection of ciders.

Gin specialist, Ginhaus (01558 823030) is excellent if you like a good G&T, but also have top food in their deli, while Cawdors (01558 823500) hotel is top of the tree for fine dining.

Peaceful, private and perched in a meadow just outside a pleasant village pub, Wild Mountains is only wild when you want it to be. The stream, the mountains and the wildlife are all out there, of course, but each bell tent has plenty of homely comforts too.
