The Teifi Valley - Guided Hiking Holidays in Cardigan, West Wales

The Teifi Valley, which meets the sea at Cardigan, has a rich and varied history from the coracle fishing practiced since prehistoric times and celebrated in the Coracle Museum at Cenarth, to the medieval castles of Cilgerran, and Newcastle Emlyn, to the Victorian woolen mills of Drefach Felindre, home of the WelshWoolMuseum. There are miles of easy walking along the banks of the Teifi, as well as through the steeply wooded valleys of tributaries like the Ceri and the Cych, where a magical waterfall hides the entrance to the underworld of the Mabinogion.

For the naturalist, the Wildlife Centre at Cardigan offers a chance to see otters, kingfishers, dippers and a host of waders and warblers. Buzzards  and Red Kites abound and in the spring the woods are full of bluebells, primroses and orchids. The falls at Cenarth, where you can watch the salmon leaping, and the steeply wooded Gorge around Cilgerran are celebrated beauty spots within a stone’s throw of our base at Parc-y-gors.
