Discovering and sampling good food and drink is central to how much we enjoy a break away. Luckily for you and us, this area of Wales has some of the best producers known worldwide. We take these ingredients, use a little thought and put in a lot of love. Whether it’s a golden wedding anniversary buffet or an exquisitely fruity breakfast for our yoga retreat guests, each is as important as the other.
Our cooking style is ‘home-made’ hospitality – good honest ingredients turned into something wonderful and we treasure seeing our food enjoyed. All food is vegetarian (Vegetarian Society approved) for all types of guests, those on courses and retreats and also holiday-making visitors too.
Please see our seasonal, evening meal example menu to tickle your tastebuds. We work with you according to the needs of your occasion, whether it be a particular celebration cake or strict dietary needs. Full-board guests tend to leave the Ceridwen Centre thoroughly satisfied, say no more. We effortlessly cater around wheat, gluten and dairy intolerances but like to have consistency at serving time so ask for essential requirements rather than preferences, with plenty of notice given.
We use fresh seasonal ingredients from our own garden or the best local suppliers. Home-made chutneys and jams are always available to buy or are served at breakfast time.
By eating local food, you’re avoiding any unnecessary food miles and lightening the load in your car for the all important beach gear. The fantastic Pembrokeshire Produce Direct is a not for profit cooperative of over 60 West Wales Food Producers, it’s cheaper than the big supermarkets and they can deliver to the door to suit your arrival day.
Our bustling local market town of Newcastle Emlyn has it all, from gift shops to grocers. Besides two supermarkets, there is a bakery, deli, health-food shop, butchers, fishmongers, organic grocers and at least a handful of cafes to stop in after all that shopping!
