The area is rich in wild life with nesting Red Kite, Buzzards, Goshawks, Peregrine Falcons and Owls, they are all outside the door and it is possible to visit a "bird hide" to see the hawks feed. There is a Kite Feeding station not far away near the small hamlet of Llandeusant. From the cottage there are miles of walks through woodlands, valleys, past waterfalls and rivers and over over hills and moorland onto the Carmarthen Fans and the Western Edge of the National Park.
