It’s not surprising that walking groups know of the Teifi valley, and invariably include a visit in their programme of walks – though it has to be said that some of the valley’s best-kept secrets are still to be discovered, even by them!
Details of local groups are listed below. Sometimes you may just want solitude or quiet reflection but sometimes, if you’re like me, it’s good to share the knowledge or passions of others. What’s that bird? Is that some sort of sacred stone? Someone will know…
The next Teifi-inspired walk for New Quay Walkers is as follows:
SATURDAY FEBRUARY 14TH – ST DOGMAELS AREA
A circular 6.5 mile walk encompassing the banks of Afon Teifi, footpaths around the village perimeter, farm tracks and local lanes. Opportunities to hear about old riverside customs, see an old workhouse and the Abbey ruins and enjoy fine views. A walk of moderate classification and including 6 or 7 stiles. Walking boots required as some paths will be muddy. Dogs to be kept on leads in fields containing sheep.
Drive to St Dogmaels and shortly after the White Hart pub turn right to meet in the village car park at 10.30am. Refreshments afterwards at the White Hart.

One of their fortchcoming walks takes in the wonderfully atmospheric Llanfihangel Rhos-y-corn – catch it if you can on January 25th, 2015.
