Llandeilo is a picturesque ancient market town, essentially rural, surrounded by farm and woodland, where the Welsh language is still in common use. It is named after Saint Teilo, a Celtic saint of the 6th century. St Teilo’s church is one of the major landmarks in the town, which also boasts the largest single span stone bridge in Wales and ancient unspoilt architecture.
Modern Llandeilo is a thriving hub for up market shopping and dining. It is within easy reach of Swansea, Llanelli, Carmarthen and the M4. A popular destination for days out, there are numerous places to eat and drink including the famous Cawdor Arms and Angel. Visitors who stay longer have a wide choice of hotels, B&Bs and cottages to rent. Llandeilo boasts a fantastic range of independent shops which include jewellers, a milliner, florists, a perfumerie, wedding dress design, gourmet food, clothing boutiques and gifts and crafts.
Nearby the rolling Carmarthenshire hills embrace some beautiful Welsh castles: the Dinefwr Estate on the edge of Llandeilo has a ruined castle and Newton House and just a short drive away are the glorious Carreg Cennen and Dryslwyn Castles.
There are regular food and craft markets and antique fairs in the town, as well as a rich variety and growing number of festivals throughout the year:
