“Llandeilo is a small, but thriving, market town in Carmarthenshire, situated on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park. It is a popular home for people who work elsewhere and also an area that attracts many tourists and holidaymakers. It is located within easy reach of the hills and the coast, the Heart of Wales railway line and the M4 motorway.
The community of about 2000 residents is well served with small friendly shops and enjoys excellent services provided by the health centre, primary and secondary schools, library, churches, chapels, fire, ambulance and police stations and the Town Council.
Few places in Britain are blessed with such a perfect setting as Llandeilo. From whichever direction you approach the town, Llandeilo rises up to greet you from miles away, the towering beech copses acting as a beacon to draw you in.
The town stands on a commanding promontory on the northern bank of the River Tywi. It is a thriving market town, comprising an attractive blend of Mediaeval, Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian streets, clustered along which are many fine buildings of historic and architectural interest. The high quality of a large part of Llandeilo’s townscape has been formally recognised by its designation as a Conservation Area.
Surrounding the town is arguably the greatest variety of beautiful and unspoilt countryside in Wales. The picturesque Tywi Valley and the gracefully landscaped Dinefwr Park, which contribute to much of Llandeilo’s charm and character, contrast with the rolling hills of the surrounding countryside.”
