Criss-crossed by ancient drovers roads and surrounded by wooded hillsides, Llanwrtyd is a popular base for outdoor lovers looking for walking, climbing, cycling, canoeing and many other outdoor activities. See our What to do section for more details.
On the outskirts of the town the Cambrian Woollen Mill is well worth a visit. A guided tour will show you the process from shearing the sheep to cleaning, spinning and processing the wool, culminating in the creation on the beautiful Cambrian Tweed. This lovely building also hosts a gift shop, restaurant and gallery.
A 45 minute drive will bring you to Dolaucothi Gold Mines - an ideal family day out. Owned by the National Trust and set amidst the wooded hillsides of the Cothi Valley, this beautiful area was first mined some 2000 years ago by the Romans, with mining coming to an end in 1932. Guided tours show you the machinery in action and offer you the chance to try panning for gold yourself!
