What to see.

Cwmifor is five minutes’ drive from the historic hilltop town of Llandeilo with its excellent craft and specialist shops, antiques emporia, galleries and restaurants. The internationally acclaimed Llandeilo Music Festival and the Llandeilo Jazz Festival take place annually in July.

The surrounding area is steeped in history with many historic castles, stately homes and beautiful gardens close by.

There are many attractive walks from Kites’ Nest into the surrounding countryside which is a haven for wildlife and perfect for birdwatching

To help you enjoy your holiday, Kites’ Nest offers not only a quiet escape but is also convenient for visiting the nearby National Trust properties of Dinefwr Park, the Dolaucothi Gold Mines, Llanerchaeron, Colby Woodland Gardens, Rhossili, Stackpole and the Tudor Merchant’s House, Tenby.

The Brecon Beacons National Park has recently been awarded "Dark Sky Status", so there is plenty of appeal for stargazers and amateur astronomers: Brecon Beacons Dark Skies Video

The Heart of Wales railway line, linking Swansea to Shrewsbury runs through the most picturesque of scenery with stops along the way including Llandrindod Wells, Llanwrtyd Wells and Builth Wells. You may join the train at stations at Llandeilo and Llandovery.

There are some spectacular castles nearby including Dinefwr, Carreg Cennen and Dryslwyn. Throughout the year both the restored gardens at Aberglasney and the National Botanic Garden of Wales and Cae Hir Gardens boast a wide range of plants in flower and are all within a few miles’ radius.

Just over an hour's drive away is St. Davids - the smallest city in the U.K. - and its historic cathedral, the site of pilgrimage and worship for many hundreds of years.

The beautiful Gower Coast, is readily accessible and the historic village of Laugharne – from which Dylan Thomas took his inspiration for “Under Milk Wood” and the famous seaside boathouse where he lived and created many of his works - are all worthwhile excursions.
