Local Services: Henllys Lodge is a detached house, which is not overlooked and set in its own grounds, approx. 2 miles from Llandovery, a market town with all amenities including banks, post office, restaurants, supermarkets and specialist shops, and approx. 2 miles from Cilycwm, a village with a local pub serving good food. Llandeilo is about 12 miles away and has more upmarket shops and restaurants. Brecon is 20 miles away. The house is on the western edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park.

Carmarthenshire has fantastic landscapes and lots to see and do and is known as 'the Garden of Wales'. There are gardens and nature parks, castles, houses, forests and hills to look at and explore, either on foot, by bike or car.

Llandovery is a traditional Welsh market town in the Upper Towy (Twyi) valley, bounded by three rivers. Its name means 'church amidst the waters'. It has a historical heritage dating back to Roman times, was an important drovers’ town and it has ruins of a Norman castle and also churches and some fine Georgian houses. The striking statue of Llywelyn ap Gruffydd Fychan, a supporter of Owain Glyndwr's struggle for Welsh independence, stands by the castle ruins.

Close by are Cilycwm, Rhandirmawn and Llyn Brianne Reservoir which are beautiful places to walk, cycle or drive. Stop off at the Dinas RSPB Nature Reserve for a stunning walk along the river and through alder and oak bluebell woodland. Brecfa and Crychan Forests offer woodland and waterfall walks and mountain biking paths.

Myddfai (approx 3 miles away) is now the Welsh residence of the Prince Charles, Prince of Wales. The 'Physicians of Myddfai' from medieval times became renowned for herbal remedies and they are also associated with the local legend of the Lady of the Lake Llyn-y-Fan Fach.

The house is at the western edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park, an area of special landscape, wildlife and cultural heritage, and Fforest Fawr Geopark, the area designated in 2005 by UNESCO because of its outstanding geological heritage.

£520.00 - £980.00.

Guest Book


The Lodge is approximately 2 miles from Llandovery.
Directions from Llandovery:
T he A40 passes through Llandovery from Brecon to the east and Llandeilo/Carmarthen to the west. If you go through the town towards Llandeilo/Carmarthen, you will pass the train station and go over a level crossing, then over a bridge over the River Twyi. Just past the bridge the main road bends sharply to the left, but you need to take the lane on the right side signposted Rhandirmawn /Cilycwm. Go to the end of the lane where there is a T-junction on a curve; turn left. Continue along this road. As the road starts to go uphill and as it bends sharply to the left, you will see a turning on the right - do not take this turning, but continue up on the same road up the hill. As the road bends to the right, the Lodge is the house on the left. You will see a sign for Henllys Estate and you can turn off the road there with the Lodge on your left. You will see a sign showing where to park.
