Looking for a relaxing weekend away? Why not combine a visit to The Lily Pond with a break in the surrounding region?

Historic Burry Port, home to The Lily Pond, is at the heart of a popular holiday area.

This small West Wales town boasts a stunning harbour, once bustling with coal-carrying ships but now a centre for private fishing and leisure craft. It's where Amelia Earhart's seaplane landed when, in the 1920s, she became the first woman to fly across the Atlantic from the USA.

Now, the harbour is part of a Millennium Coastal Path, stretching along the Burry river estuary to the beaches of Carmarthen Bay. The Path links pretty marinas with wildlife sites, fishing areas, event spaces and sports facilities.

Close by is the village of Pembrey, with its huge Country Park, Norman church, motor-racing circuit and breathtaking views. Beyond that is Kidwelly, its castle steeped in Welsh legends.

There are no major hotels in the area people prefer our many inns and b+bs. Try Burry Port's The George--just across the road from The Lily Pond, Pembrey's Old Vicarage or the Pembrey Inn.
