Even Warmer In Winter

Holidays are not just for summer. Winter is a great time to spend nights away with friends and family. And because Carmarthenshire is so close, just at the end of the M4, you don’t need to travel far to escape the winter blues. So close that your four legged friends can come too.

They’ll enjoy the array of winter walks as much a you will.


In winter, places to stay tend to cost less, but the rewards can be more. Cosy up in a luxury country cottage or swish hotel. Outside it may be crisp and cold but inside the Carmarthenshire welcome is always warm. It’s easy to mix with locals, especially after a few drinks! Talking of local it’s a word you’ll find on most menus. The winter fayre will be sourced from Carmarthenshire farms or the seas off the West Wales coast. And craft ales will often be brewed just a few miles from your bar or hotel.

And after a brisk winter walk, what better way to round off the day than gathered around a log fire enjoying a bowl of Cawl, We’ve even put together a “Cawl Crawl” linking some of the best places in the county to enjoy this Welsh winter treat.

Our market towns draw visitors looking for independent shopping as it should be. Coffee culture is strong in places like Carmarthen and Llandeilo. So after you’ve found the perfect gift, you can enjoy the perfect brew. And its likely to roasted locally too. Try Welsh brands like Coaltown Coffee or Teifi Coffee.

You don’t have to travel far to enjoy winter warmth. Carmarthenshire is easy to get to and it’s so easy to relax when you’re here. The welcome in Carmarthenshire is genuine at any time of year. But in winter it feels even warmer. Or maybe it’s the memory of that log fire in the cottage or the local pub!

This is Carmarthenshire in winter. This is Real.
