The towns, villages and resorts here retain a character that is becoming difficult to find elsewhere. Carmarthenshire is conveniently located too. Take a look at the map.

great escape and just a stone’s throw away from places like Llandeilo and Llandovery. Also on Carmarthenshire’s doorstep is the Gower Peninsula, the first part of Britain to be declared an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. You’ll find lots of essential information here, whether you’re on ‘Staycation’ having a day out, or spending some time away from home with your dog, we list some of the finest dog friendly places in the county. Those all important dog friendly beaches and country walks, as well as a few places you never perhaps thought you’d be able to take your dog, are featured here. You will be spoilt for choice as there’s lots to see and do with your best friend!

Paws for Thought We want you to make the most of being on holiday with your best friend. This means respecting the fact that not everyone is a dog lover and a certain etiquette applies. Here are some basic rules to bear in mind whilst out and about with your pet: • Always clean up after your dog. • Never leave your dog in a hot, or even warm, car. • Dogs should be kept on leads where stated. If off lead, your dog must be kept under close control. By law, you must control your dog so that it does not disturb or scare farm animals or wildlife. Farmers are entitled to destroy a dog that injures or worries their animals. As a general rule, keep your dog on a lead if you cannot rely on its obedience. • Leave all gates, whether opened or closed, as you found them. Walking and cattle Many footpaths cut across farmland which is being grazed by cattle.
Cattle are not prohibited from being kept in fields crossed by rights of way. Much of the time, a herd of cattle in a field will approach you out of curiosity. It would be prudent however, to exercise caution when entering a field of cattle, as serious cases of attacks by cattle have taken place, particularly upon walkers with dogs. The following advice is given: • When walking through a field of cattle, move calmly and quietly through the field. • Do not let yourself get between a cow and her calf. • If you have a dog with you, the most important thing is to let it go. The cattle are probably more interested in the dog than you and the dog can travel a lot faster and will get itself to safety. Your safety should be prime in your mind.
