Scotch Pine Inn: Pub on site

General

  • Quiet hillside rural pub site overlooking the Amman Valley
  • A 20-minute drive from Carreg Cennen Castle; walking routes nearby
  • Next to a pub serving food and drinks; town centre five minutes’ drive

Raring to go for a rural stay that will help you to unwind? Then, Scotch Pine Inn may be a good port of call. A quiet hillside site with a pub up top, this site overlooks the Amman Valley, so traffic-free riverside trails and mountain hikes are quite on the cards around here.

The site sits up high in a field below the site’s country pub, so there are scenic views over the countryside. In fact, the only disturbance is from the sheep and bird song, so it’s likely that you’ll find this quite a peaceful place to get in a good sleep or some downtime with a book or binoculars.

Those of you who are keen to tackle the local trails will be pleased to hear that there are plenty of walks on your doorstep. The site is also 15 minutes’ drive away from the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park, where mountains (and some caves) are the speciality.

Despite the quiet around, you won’t have to go on quite as much of a trek to find the local amenities, as the pub serves food and drink to keep your stomach feeling merry, and the centre of Ammanford has a wide assortment of shops, restaurants and pubs five minutes’ drive away from the site.

    The owners offered a very warm welcome and are super friendly and accommodating. The site was really peaceful, out of the wind and although next to the road, really quiet.
    We didn't get around to eating at the Inn, although they were really busy on the Saturday night which must say something!

    Fantastic views from this wonderful pub. The lovely couple who have run the pub for 30 years provide a warm welcome to those of us who understand old values. Don't miss the opportunity to visit the pub to see a remarkable 1980s time-capsule

    Lovely couple, lovely food and imagine lovely views when its not so misty.

    The mountain road can be tricky if you are an unsure or inexperienced driver so just take it easy and you will be fine.

    Really liked this little pub stop and we are so glad we chose it for our first one.

Local attractions

Coast, cave and castles… these three are part of the cocktail in this area of land. The local castles, including Carreg Cennen Castle (20 minutes’ drive) and Dinefwr Castle (half an hour) won’t let you miss out on a good dose of Welsh history. The same can be said for the National Showcaves Centre for Wales (40 minutes), as the dinosaur park, museum, gold panning activities and Iron Age farm open up a fair few pages in the history books.

As for that coast that Wales is so well-known for, the Gower Peninsula (45 minutes) keeps some of the cleanest beaches and cool coastal path stretches, as it’s an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Then, Swansea (half an hour) has a little more of the traditional seaside life with surfing on the beaches and shopping in the city.

It’s not just about the three Cs, though. There’s a waterfall at Henrhyd Falls (40 minutes) for a handsome hike, a load of plant life in the National Botanic Garden of Wales (25 minutes) and walking, cycling and mountain biking in Llyn Llech Owain Country Park (20 minutes).

Must see

  • Carreg Cennen Castle (4.7 miles)
  • Aberglasney Gardens (8.5 miles)
  • National Botanic Garden of Wales (9.2 miles)
