Llanelli Accommodation and Holiday Guide


Llanelli is famous for having one of the best rugby teams in Wales. The Scarlets rugby union team currently play at the famous Stradey Park ground about a mile outside the town centre, although there is talk of the club relocating to a bigger ground.

The goal posts at Stradey Park are adorned with red tin saucepans in a nod to the town’s history. In fact the little Welsh song “Sospan Fach” is the club’s song. For further information on the club and fixtures, see: Llanelli Scarlets Rugby Club . Rugby and beer seem to go hand in hand, and as luck would have it, Llanelli is also home to the The Felinfoel Brewery

If beer and rugby aren’t what you are looking for, Llanelli has plenty more to offer the flora and fauna enthusiast. The National Wetland Centre Wales has 450 acres of pools lakes and lagoons, and is home to over 650 of the world’s most beautiful birds. Many of these are so tame that they can be hand fed. From the Wetland Centre the Millennium Coastal Park offers visitors an excellent opportunity to see the beautiful countryside of Southern Carmarthenshire from a 22km traffic free path. The path starts (or ends) at the Wetland Centre and ends (or starts) at Pembrey Country Park. The park offers over 200 hectares of beautiful parkland and many activities for all the family.

The beautiful blue flag beach at Pembrey is part of the park, and there is also horse riding, a toboggan run, a dry ski slope and much much more, for further details please call: 01269 833913.
