Persimmon Homes


Llanelli is where west Wales and east Wales meet, where the valleys meet the sea and where history meets 21st century Wales. The largest town in Carmarthenshire with a vibrant city centre and sense of community pride, your new home in Llanelli is surrounded by miles of beaches to the south, a Wildfowl and Wetland Centre to the south east and miles of undulating hills and rolling countryside to the north.

The town centre is crammed with blue plaques celebrating the history of the town, with beautiful Georgian streets full of high street shops, independent stores, coffee shops, bars and restaurants. There's even an indoor market packed with gorgeous local produce and street food to take away. Visit Parc y Scarlets to see the rugby, Fwrness Theatre to watch the plays and Felinfoel Brewery to enjoy the beer! If you're looking for a new build, Llanelli has a lot to offer.
