Sweet-toothed Carmarthenshire residents and tourists have got a real treat lined up as part of Carmarthenshire’s Year of Adventure. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The team behind Discover Carmarthenshire have devised a taste-bud tingling adventure that would make Mary Berry proud – a tasty cake trail taking in some of the county’s best patisseries and sweet spots. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Stretching from east to west, the Carmarthenshire Cake Trail takes in a number of delightful culinary treasures across Whitland, Laugharne, Llandeilo and Rhosmaen by car, and Llanelli, Burry Port, Kidwelly and Carmarthen by bike, connected by Llanarthne which is on both trails. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Set out over a whole day, or taken in bite-size pieces, people can plan their journey and stop to explore the rugged rural scenery of Carmarthenshire’s countryside, its sweeping coastlines and popular cultural attractions. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Car trail stops include Amser Te in Whitland, the chic GinHaus in Llandeilo, Dylan Thomas Boathouse in Laugharne and The Plough Inn at Rhosmaen. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The bike trail takes in Calon Café & Interiors in Carmarthen, Llanelli’s Stradey Park Hotel and Whitford’s Café Bar in Burry Port. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Both trails take in Wright’s Food Emporium in Llanarthne. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Cllr Meryl Gravell, Executive Board Member for regeneration, said: “The Carmarthenshire Cake Trail is a fantastic way for people to indulge in sweet treats whilst exploring the fantastic natural and cultural attractions Carmarthenshire has to offer. I think it is going to prove very popular!” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
