Just so you know where it is … the river Teifi is the natural border between Carmarthenshire and Ceredigion for much of its length, then it becomes the border with Pembrokeshire. That makes it superbly convenient from everywhere in West Wales! The main towns from source to sea are: Tregaron, Lampeter, Llanybydder, Llandysul, Newcastle Emlyn and Cardigan. So there are plenty of stopping points for refreshments but wonderful stretches of wild Wales to enjoy in between. Fall in love with the Teifi and you may well come back another time to track this lovely river from Teifi Pools high in the Cambrian mountains all the way to sandy Poppit Sands where it makes it to the sea. Afon Teifi is the longest river wholly in Wales.
Want to explore the Teifi Valley but not sure where to start?
You’ve come to the right place! We’re a band of bloggers who want to pass on the best of the trails, events and activities in this lovely, unspoilt part of Wales. When you live and work in the Teifi valley, it soon becomes second nature to share the landscape, the heritage and the culture of the area with visitors. We subscribe to the view that everyone should get out more, and that includes us!
Our trails blog showcases a wide selection of ideas for days out, whether that involves driving, walking, cycling or adventure trails. And yes, there are trips for rainy days, just in case, as well as tips for discovering local history, culture, food and drink and festivals. We’ll bring you the best trails from both local sources and across the internet, but to kick off we’ve put together a couple of trails of our own (see below) which we think would make a fantastic introduction to the area. Please remember all you know about health and safety because though we’d like to share our favourite places with you, we can’t be responsible for how you get on!
Cenarth Falls have been known as a beauty spot since Victorian times. Countless travellers have posed on the stone bridge and watched salmon leap the falls on their way up river to spawn. Visit an award-winning cheese farm and you’ll have great contents for a picnic in the woods or, indeed, back on the riverside.
The National Wool Museum at Dre-fach Felindre is an outing just on its own, with demonstrations from friendly, knowledgeable staff, not to mention the working mill and a shop full of beautiful blankets. And did we say the magic word ‘tearoom’? But just to widen the scope of interest, take in Henllan as well – for steam train magic, waterfall, art gallery and lovely woodland. A route for drivers or cyclists, with plenty of opportunities to take a walk.
