Eating Out

Apart from local restaurants, of which there are many, this useful guide will help you decide.  Confession time . . . . Sosban is my all time favourite!

Also take a browse at a lovely scrumptious confectioners - a real favourite is Heavenly in Llandeilo where the sweet tooth can be satisfied time and time again!

Many Tears Animal Rescue Centre

If, like us, you are an animal lover, please take a look at the Many Tears Rescue Centre near Llanelli.

Many Tears takes in ex -breeding dogs & un-wanted pound dogs knowing that when they go into Many Tears, their stay will be a happy one with good food, medical care, a comfy warm bed with plenty of walks, & lots of love.

Many Tears has a "no kill policy" and will keep their animals until they can rehomed.  They often have to spend a great deal of money in treating conditions and ailments that many of the animals arrive at the centre with, and as such the centre is always in desperate need of funds.  Even if you just have some old duvets or towels, they would be very well received if you need to find a home for them.

They have a very comprehensive website which tells you all about them, the animals looking for new 'forever homes', and about the ways in which we can all help.  Make sure you have some tissues at hand as the first visit is often a tearful one!

If you fancy a walk one day during your stay with us, they always welcome visitors & would be very pleased if you could help by walking a dog for them.  We're sure you will then see first hand (as we did when we visited), what a fantastic job they do and how well the animals are looked after once they arrive at the centre.

You can find out more about Many Tears on their Facebook page too.
