Experience a Bed and Breakfast Stay in Llanelli

Llanelli is a town in Carmarthenshire, the largest county in Wales. It is home to the Old Castle Works (an entertainment and leisure complex), the Parc Howard Museum and Art Gallery, the Theatre Elli, and the historic Llanelly/Llanelli House that was first built in 1714 and then restored in 2011.

Among the popular events in Carmarthenshire’s most populous town are the Llanelli Beer Festival, Llanelli Carnival, and the Big Day Out Music Festival. Its proximity to Cefn Sidon beach, the National Wetlands Centre, the Pembrey Country Park, and the Millenium Coastal Park makes Llanelli a “must” destination for tourists in Wales.

Savour Welsh Breakfast

A holiday in Llanelli would be far from complete without a healthy dose of scrumptious Welsh breakfasts. What makes this morning meal with patriotic flair unique?

Wales’ culinary fares “have a strong tradition of living off the land” or are influenced by its coastal environment. Breakfast normally consists of Welsh cockles (an edible mollusc) and laverbread, a puréed “Welshman’s caviar” or seaweed mixed with oatmeal and then fried. These are served with bacon, eggs, mushrooms, and sausages. Likewise, smoked fish with poached eggs are offered, as well as recipes with oysters, mussels, and other seafood. Drinks may include beer, ale, and Welsh tea.

Besides marine-infused dishes, Welsh cuisine features lamb, Gorwydd Caerphilly and other types of cheese, leeks, barley, and vegetables. Many of its ingredients are locally produced and organically grown.
