A Great British Weekend (…short break or holiday)

Following in famous footsteps – and where, in this heart of Welsh heritage, Investment has followed Investiture!!

Inspired by this glorious location, HRH Prince of Wales has recently invested in property at Llwynywermod, a couple of miles outside Llandovery. No doubt, he and the Duchess of Cornwall join the countless tourists who are drawn by:

The painted terraced houses, Norman castle, legends and a general ambience that transcends the passing of time.

Bethlehem, 15 kms away, with Garn Goch – the largest Iron Age hill fort in Wales.

Nearby; Loventium, the Roman 2nd Legion fort, the focus of roads, many of which can still be traced.

Numerous cycling and walking routes, augmented by glorious scenery and flowers and a warm and welcoming local population.

A vibrant social calendar highlighted by events such as the RAC Rally and Drovers’ Festival.

Llyn y Fan Fach and the legend of The Lady of The Lake.

In the mountains above Rhandirmwyn and where myths and legends were born, the impressive Llyn Brianne reservoir.

The opportunity for endless and spectacular country walks that might encompass: Brecon Beacons National Park Towy River RSPB, Dinas Nature Reserve.

Relaxing journeys on the Heart of Wales Railway to the spa town of Llandrindod Wells.

Dolaucothi Gold Mines: …a visitors’ centre tells of Welsh gold, mined since Roman times.

Twm Cati’s Cave...the cave hideout of the infamous Welsh outlaw leader.

Rhandirmwyn… is superb walking country.

Kite Country…the last home of the Red Kite.

There is, in fact, so much to do and enjoy in this exquisite region. Here, at The Drovers, we are perfectly situated and happy to advise you on all local activities and events. The red carpet is, of course, permanently unrolled for the royal welcome that awaits all our guests.

“…Llandovery is a small but beautiful town situated amongst fertile meadows. It is a water girdled spot, whence its name Llandovery or Llanymddyfri which signifies church surrounded by water.”
George Borrow, ‘Wild Wales’ 1854
