South Wales has no shortage of charming places to enjoy a memorable staycation. Whether you’re searching for somewhere to visit with family or booking a romantic retreat for two, bustling Carmarthen (known as Caerfyrddin in Welsh) makes an ideal base for exploring the wider region. The county town of Carmarthenshire isn’t just jam-packed with delicious dining spots and quaint heritage sites. It’s also within easy reach of some of Wales’ top sites — including the breathtaking Pembrokeshire Coast, the thriving city of Swansea and the glorious National Botanic Garden of Wales.

Carmarthen holidays certainly pack a punch thanks to the town’s sheer range of things to do. Why not make your way to St Catherine Street where you’ll find shops and cafés galore? You could also stroll along the pretty banks of the River Towy (a prime destination for trout fishing) or ride along the scenic Gwilli Railway on a vintage steam train. History buffs will be in their element as there’s a handful of ancient castles in the local area. Spend an hour exploring the ruins of Carmarthen Castle or head for the nearby village of Kidwelly to visit its Norman stronghold. Laugharne also hosts a crumbling medieval castle and Tudor mansion where Dylan Thomas famously wrote some of his most celebrated poems.

Rather soak up the area’s natural beauty? Head for the coast to admire dramatic vistas of Carmarthen Bay from places like sweeping Pendine Sands beach or pretty Pembrey Country Park. For a longer road trip, journey along the coast to towns like Llanelli and Tenby for a classic day out at the seaside. Alternatively, the Brecon Beacons are only a short drive from Carmarthen and crisscrossed with hiking trails, including those that take in the lovely Llyn y Fan Fach.

We’ve got plenty of picture-perfect holiday homes to choose from in Carmarthen. Stay in a spacious apartment in the heart of the town to be within walking distance of its many attractions and amenities. You’ll also spot cosy cottages scattered around its outskirts featuring all kinds of luxurious extras, from wood-burning stoves to bubbling hot tubs.
