In autumn, Carmarthenshire has a reddish glow. The leaves in our ancient woodlands, are turning various shades of yellow, orange, copper, and brown. The days grow shorter but the list of things to do, is long.


Autumn is peak season for walkers, and cyclists. The paths and trails may be the same, but in autumn, it feels different. Take the Waterfall Walk at Cwm Rhaeadr, the autumn rain amplifies the sound of falling water, so you'll hear the cascade before you glimpse it through the trees.

Carreg Cennen Castle looks even more dramatic, set against a vivid autumn sunset and the changing tones of the woodland on the Black Mountain.

Autumn on the Carmarthenshire coast is special too. The waves crash just that bit louder, the salt air is that bit crisper and the beaches uncrowded. Autumn is the best time to enjoy Laugharne and the surrounding coastline. Here you can experience the sights and sounds that inspired, Dylan Thomas’ appropriately titled “Poem in October”.
