In the lower garden you will find a gas bbq, picnic table with parasol, coffee table, bench, armchairs and sun loungers. There is also a paddling pool for your dog as well as a large comfy dog bed with sail shade, for those hot, sunny days. Relax and enjoy the beautiful views up and down the valley, whilst listening to the birds singing and watching the Red Kites circling overhead. With walks from the doorstep, as well as year round dog friendly beaches, forests and the Cambrian Mountains just a short drive away, Woodlands is the perfect get away from it all location. Peaceful and secluded with an abundance of wildlife, particularly birds, Woodlands is a little slice of paradise here in West Wales. And if you've never explored this area before, you'll be staggered by the beauty and diverse scenery at every turn. We love animals here at Woodlands - we automatically accept 3 well behaved dogs and will consider more, depending on size and breed. We also welcome cats and what's more, your furry friends stay with us completely free of charge, regardless of the length of your stay. Our own animal family is large and varied with dogs, cats, sheep, chickens, ducks, rabbits and alpacas. Our alpaca family is made up of 3 beautiful girls and 3 young and cheeky boys, who form our trekking team. Walk with these lovely lads right from the doorstep through the stunning Welsh countryside and then return to our meadow where you can feed and cuddle all 6 of our alpacas, whilst enjoying a cream tea in Tabitha, our meadow caravan. If you would like to book a trek during your stay, please contact us in advance for pricing and more information - our treks are very popular and advanced booking is recommended. All our treks are totally private and exclusive to you. The Brecon Suite has a large lounge, double bedroom, kitchen/diner and bathroom and is furnished to a very high standard with everything you need for your stay.

About the neighbourhood
A stunningly beautiful part of West Wales with so much to do, you'll be spoilt for choice. The Cambrian Mountains are a 15 minute drive away and the mountain road up to Llyn Brianne Reservoir with secret lakes, forest walks, scenic views and a fabulous pub along the way make a great day out. The majority of the beaches in the area are dog friendly all year round and our favourite is Poppit Sands - miles of beach and dunes for the dogs to let off steam and go crazy! The kite feeding at Bwllch Nant Yr Arian is spectacular - approximately 150 Red Kites putting on the most dazzling display (daily throughout the year). I could go on and on, but I'll let you come and explore for yourselves!
Getting around
Woodlands itself is set in a beautiful position overlooking the Aeron Valley. Although peaceful and secluded, we are only a couple of miles from the nearest shops, pubs, petrol stations etc. If you are bringing your dog/s, then we are lucky enough to have beautiful countryside walks right from the doorstep. Our nearest (dog friendly) beach is about a 20 minute drive and the Cambrian Mountains about 15 minutes.
