We are ideally situated for travel to the Gower, Pembrokeshire and West Wales.
Paxton View Barn is located within the 10 acres of Bryngwendraeth Farm. There are numerous animals to meet – we have a horse, donkeys, tack sheep and chickens. We will happily show you around and share with you our local knowledge.
We are in the village of Llanddarog, Carmarthenshire. The spire of Llanddarog’s 18th century church can be seen for miles around and once was an important landmark for those travelling west and east. You may notice the Churchyard is round without any corners, this was done so that the devil had nowhere to hide! At either end of the village warm welcomes are assured in the four traditional pubs. One of which, a 14th century thatched pub, has its own brewery crafting real ales and cider. Another provides a take away menu with generous portions.
Five minutes away we have the National Botanic Gardens. Set in a beautiful regency estate, you can explore the world’s largest single-span glasshouse, play areas and a national nature reserve. See their program of events and courses by following this link.
Just a 10 minute drive away is Carmarthen; the oldest town in Wales and the birthplace of Merlin. The town offers an array of shopping, entertainment and dining options. Equally worthy of a visit is the old jail house, which dates back to the 1530s. Today, it serves as a museum nestling within the outer walls of the imposing County Hall. Just outside the town, you can take a ride aboard the Gwili Steam Railway, which puffs its way through the Carmarthenshire countryside.
Carmarthenshire has some of the most spectacular and diverse landscapes in South Wales. You can travel over breathtaking mountains, through lush, green landscapes, discover secluded castles and ancient forests, as well as vast expanses of golden sandy beaches such as Pembrey (one of the longest in Wales), Laugharne, Pendine and Lansteffan. Also within easy reach are the Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion Coastlines, plus the Gower Peninsula with it’s wealth of attractions.
