Merlin’s Hill Centre

Attraction in Carmarthenshire

Merlin’s Hill Centre

Discover the secrets of Carmarthenshire at The Merlin’s Hill Centre at Alltyfyrddin – a farm steeped in history, shrouded in mystery and rich in wildlife on land that has been farmed for over 2000 years. 

Follow in the footsteps of Merlin the wizard and walk up the nature trails to the Iron Age Hillfort Site. Experience breathtaking views of Carmarthenshire and beyond, a landscape shaped by its rich heritage and where legend mingles with historical fact. Listen for Merlin’s ghostly wailings, for legend has it, he is still imprisoned within this hill.

Down on the farmyard, discover the area’s history and traditions in the heritage centre and learn about farming – past and present. Watch the cows being milked in the afternoon. The Merlin’s Hill Wool Collection – made from the wool of the Jacob Sheep that graze this hill – can be bought in the gift and book shop. Picnic area. Ample Parking.

Author's Review

Throughout the United Kingdom, Merlin, King Arthur's Guardian has left his mark and lots of Counties try and stake their claim to him and his mystical ways. However, here in Carmarthenshire it is strongly claimed that this Welsh county was where Merlin was born and ultimately where he returned to die. However, no matter what you believe, you’ll be able to make your own mind up once you've visited the Merlin’s Hill Centre just a few miles out of Carmarthen. Along with the history of Merlin and his cave, is a small farming museum which really did take me by surprise. Even though it's a small exhibition, together with its exhibits, it tells the story behind the history of farming in Carmarthenshire and its owners Gareth & Sharon have put a lot of work into each exhibit and with its entrance fee being very reasonable, it's definitely worth a visit.
