* '''Half day drive from Swansea''': Join M4 at Swansea and take until the end. Follow A483 and then A40 through [[Llandeilo]] and the market town of [[Llandovery]]. Both towns are very picturesque, though Llandovery is larger and has more places to relax and visit. Instead of traveling directly to Llandovery, it is possible to take a detour to the river-side village of Trapp and the spectaular Carreg Cennen Castle [http://www.castlewales.com/carreg.html]. There are handicraft gift shops and cafes at the castle and near Trapp. From the castle there is the option of returning to Llandeilo and rejoining the A40 or traveling through the lanes to Llandovery. From Llandovery, follow signs for Sennybridge and then take a right onto the A4067. This road leads to the Dan-yr-Ogaf show caves and back to the M4, (Head west for Mumbles and Gower and leave the motorway at 'Exit 47', 'Swansea West,' or head east for Swansea City Center and leave the motorway at 'Exit 42.' Follow signs for 'The National Waterfront Museum'). During this half day journey, you will pass through some of Wales' most breathtaking pastoral scenes, and along the way take in quaint villages and towns, mountains, caves, lakes and waterfalls.
