Living in Carmarthenshire

The Garden of Wales

Carmarthenshire embodies that typical Welsh beauty, filled with rolling hills and golden beaches overlooked by towering castles. It’s also shoulder to shoulder with Pembrokeshire, Brecon Beacons, Cardigan Bay and Gower Peninsula Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, so you really are nestled amongst some of the UK’s finest landscapes when living here.

River Taf cuts through the county, as well as the River Towy, which Carmarthen and Johnstown both share. The National Botanic Gardens of Wales is just ten minutes off the M4. And when you want a break from all the greenery, Swansea is less than an hour’s drive away or a direct train ride from Carmarthen itself. Buying a home in Llanelli in particular places you right in the mix, with Swansea, Port Talbot and Cardiff just on the other side of the motorway.

Myths and legends
