4. Carreg Cennen Castle – 5 to 6 miles


Event Details


General information

This moderately difficult walk of 5-6 miles is centred around the historic castle of Carreg Cennen and is situated in the Brecon Beacons National Park.

Along the way we take in lovely views of the surrounding Carmarthenshire countryside, the Cennen and Loughor rivers and the imposing castle from all perspectives atop its outcrop of rock.

There is one significant downhill / uphill climb near the beginning of the walk and a stick is recommended, particularly if there has been recent rain resulting in mud.

There will be break about halfway round the walk for snacks/packed lunches, which you need to bring yourselves. There is a good tea shop by the castle / car park, so there is an option to visit that at the end of the walk if you wish. The castle is privately owned, so there is an entrance charge to explore it up close. Please note that the only toilets available on this walk are the ones in the tea shop.
