Explore the enchanted forest at Dinefwr

Oxbow lakes and River Tywi, Dinefwr Park, Carmarthenshire

Dinefwr is the only designated National Nature Reserve in Wales and the woodland is home to some of the oldest trees in Britain. At the right time of the year you can see dragons, in the form of freshwater dragonflies.

Also in Wales, amongst the ancient oak woodlands of Beddgelert, is a hill called Dinas Emrys. This area has links with Merlin, King Arthur and legend has it that this is where the red dragon of Wales comes from. Find out more about the legends of Beddgelert.
