Come and join the Swansea Astronomical Society in the stunning surrounds of Lord Foster’s Great Glasshouse for an evening of star-gazing. The SAS’s stellar experts will be giving talks, too, and helping you with any difficulties you are having with your telescopes at a series of special one-on-one clinics. 6pm-9pm.
Christmas shopping in Llandeilo is not to be missed! But this pretty market town is worth a visit all year round and has lots of great little independent shops to browse. There is also the Antiques Centre at the far end of town and Dynevor is only 5 minutes from the main street too. There are lots of lovely cafes and restaurants with The Cawdor and The Angel being worthy of a visit for a special treat!
We visited last week and were struck by the beautiful window displays.
If staying at Old Oak barn you can drive to this popular market town in about 30 minutes.
