Holidays and day trips.

Brechfa Forest and Llanllwni Mountain is a beautiful area for walkers,  runners,  cyclists and horse riders to roam.   Savour the tranquillity of sheltered forest tracks and open moorland  with the opportunity to call in a village pub or source a picnic from one of the village shops.


It doesn’t matter if your preference is a cosy holiday cottage for two,   a family size property or a holiday let large enough for multiple generations or a group of friends.  Perhaps you prefer to start your days with a hearty breakfast in a local bed and breakfast or the experience of staying in a country hotel.  Alternatively you may prefer to spend your nights under canvas on a camp site or glamping.    Whatever style of holiday accommodation you prefer  there will be a property to suit you in the area encircling the forest and mountain.     On our tourism map you will find details of all the places to stay where the owners support assisting their guests with local knowledge.

For some people calling in to a village pub is an essential part of a day out in the countryside,   while others prefer a picnic,   or a cream tea.    To support both holidaymakers and day trippers we have have both pubs and other businesses who welcome tourists on our tourism map. 

We have put together two different map pages to help you plan your walk,  run,   cycle or ride in the forest or on the mountain.   –   The are some walks,  rides and mountain bike trails promoted by Carmarthenshire County Council and Natural Resources Wales.   –  There is a link to the start point of each of these routes on the tourism map.   We realise for some people may struggle with map reading,   so have chosen to add a range of information from photographs and descriptions of the junctions along the route to

Others prefer to design their own routes,   that is the advantage of open access land,   walkers and horse riders have the right to roam across the mountain and through the forest,   while mountain bikers have the right to use bridleways and byways across the mountain as well as roam in our forest   It can be daunting heading out  in a new area,  especially in a commercial forest when junctions can look similar.   –   To help people devise their own routes we have created a map with the grid references and what3words overlayed on an OS map.    –   These maps are designed to make it easy for people to create a gpx file for their route if that is what they want to do,  or to take a copy of the map with them so that if they get lost they can use the ??????  app to help lead them back on track.

Other maps on this website help visitors explore the rich cultural heritage of the area ranging from Neolithic burial mounts to a 2002 stone peace cairn.

A different section of the website is designed to support families with ideas of activities for the children.
