In the world famous the trip documentaries, very little, if anything is mentioned about Wales as one of the most naturally attractive places. This is unfortunate because a lot of individuals are missing out on seeing and going through the natural wonders in the heart of West Wales. This quiet location still has it physical condition and beauty intact. You are immediately charmed on beholding this breathtaking sight.
Many artists and craftspeople who visited West Wales have chosen to remain here, and make it their home. Expectedly, since it’s a beautiful small area, many are open to visits in their Studios, and all over the place, there are Galleries and craft shops that stock local arts and crafts. You have the Pendre Arts Gallery, and Cafe in Cardigan and the Makers Mark in Newcastle Emlyn.
In the heart of West Wales, the Teifi Valley flows through the borders of Carmarthenshire and Ceredigion. Although it is very little known, it has some of the most beautiful landscapes in Wales. The Teifi River is 75 miles long, and runs from the mysterious Teifi Piscinas, (the Llyn Teifi) is about 1500 feet up in the west of the Cambrian mountains, to the sea at Cardigan (the Welsh name of Cardigan, Aberteifi means the Mouth of the River Teifi).
Along with its path, there are spectacular whitewater gorges, stunning waterfalls, lush water meadows and cool green wooded tunnels, and slow shallow pools that flow over gravel beds, the whole area is teeming with wildlife, from the Salmon and Seaweed on the river to the soaring red kites high above.
There is much more attraction to keep the visitor busy in this corner of West Wales; the area is a paradise for hikers, cyclists, fishermen and bird watchers. There is a canoe in Cilgerran and Llandysul. There are 6 or 7 beautiful unpolluted beaches within easy reach, with cliff walks, cafes and pubs, and soft golden sand. You can often spot dolphins and seals in the sea, and even catch a boat from Newquay to see them.
Each of our lovely market towns and villages along the way has an interesting history to feature, and most of the traditional architecture still untouched.
Our accommodation is all private and cozy and its owners have decided to settle in the Teifi Valley from all over the world, as they have been charmed by the quiet intact location, and the illustrious history and traditions still today.
