The Llyn Brianne reservoir – a large lake formed when the river was dammed as part of a hydro-electric scheme, now attracting hikers, cyclists and motorists to take in the spectacular views. Visit the nearby ancient Roman Dolaucothi gold mines and try panning for gold, or for garden lovers Aberglasney Gardens or the National Botanic Garden of Wales are a good choice. Bird watchers will enjoy the RSPB Reserve at Dinas or the Red Kite feeding station at Llanddeusant. The more energetic may wish to try the Brechfa Forest Mountain Bike trails or perhaps a gentle stroll around the village of Llandewi Brefi featured in the TV series ’Little Britain’. There are local walking routes and a good selection of tourist information brochures at the park, which cover a wide choice of interests catering for all ages and tastes. Holidaymakers can visit the beautiful sandy beaches of the West Wales coast with Llangranog, New Quay, Aberaeron to the west and Pembrey, Pendine, Amroth, Saundersfoot or Tenby to the south.
