10 ways to make your visit greener:
There are lots of ways to make your stay with us more eco-friendly. Here are some ideas to get you started.
1. Enjoying locally grown and produced food
We have some excellent growers and producers in the local area, and some lovely local shops and eateries serving locally sourced food, so it’s easy to keep your food miles under control. Check out Iechyd Da and Matthews Butchers in Llandovery. There is also a local market on the last Saturday of every month. When it’s available, we provide a complimentary bottle of Dr Grandad’s wonderful apple juice – grown and bottled just three miles away. You can buy some to take home with you from the Royal Oak pub or the Towy Bridge Inn. The Royal Oak has a fantastic selection of local beers and lagers.
2. Being responsible when you’re out and about
While you’re having fun in our lovely valley, please respect this special place. Stick to paths and tracks wherever possible. Take your litter away with you. And please don’t disturb or feed our wildlife, damage our riverbanks and grasslands or pick our flowers and plants. There’s plenty of good advice in the Countryside Code and the Waterways Code.
