Llandeilo is a picturesque ancient market town situated on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Essentially rural, and surrounded by farm and woodland, where the Welsh language is still in common use. It is named after Saint Teilo, a Celtic saint of the 6th century. St Teilo’s church is one of the major landmarks in the town, which also boasts the largest single span stone bridge in Wales and ancient unspoilt architecture.
Modern Llandeilo is a thriving hub for up market, unique shopping and dining. It is located within easy reach of the hills and the coast, the Heart of Wales railway line, Swansea, Llanelli, Carmarthen and the M4.
A popular destination for days out, there are numerous places to eat and drink including the famous Cawdor Arms, AJ’s and The Angel. Visitors who stay longer have a wide choice of hotels, B&Bs and cottages to rent. Llandeilo boasts a fantastic range of independent shops which include jewellers, a milliner, clothes boutiques, florists, a perfumerie, wedding dress design, a chocolate shop, gourmet food, and of course Peppercorn Cook shop.
