Play - 2017 Is the Welsh year of Legends / Chwarae - 2017

Yes, Wales is an ancient landscape, with thousands of years of history and myth wherever you look. We speak a language that’s a living link with King Arthur and our Celtic ancestors. It’s a land of majestic mountains and mighty skies, fringed with a famously beautiful coastline. But it’s also a land of epic thinking and high adventure. Everywhere you go, there are bright new ideas, in very old places: zip wires, mountain bike trails, inland surfing – and the world’s first complete coastal path.

The Teifi Valley area is rich in natural resources, flora and fauna, of interest to all – ramblers, birdwatchers, artists, photographers, beachcombers and stargazers. We are also at the heart of what was once a thriving Welsh woollen industry, just over a mile from the excellent National Woollen Museum, with much to appeal to those keen on local, social and industrial history.

Many artists, craftspeople and other creative people live and work in the area – make time to visit their workshops and studios, to experience and buy genuinely local souvenirs of your stay. Enjoy exploring at your own pace or ask us, as many of our visitors do, to organise an activity – including mountain-biking, kayaking, coasteering and Canadian canoeing we know all of the activity providers locally and can suggest which one suits your needs. Please go to our links page to find out more about your passion in this area or contact us directly.

Mountain Bike Hire & Guiding and our new Bike Skills Park

We also run West Wales bike skills events and guiding service from the Ceridwen Centre. Please book in advance to avoid disappointment. Or just arm yourself with a route map and we can organise bike hire in advance for the day to explore the bridleways, drovers’ roads and local forests. Alternatively, devote yourself to a whole weekend of mountain biking on one of our biking breaks, meet fellow friends and enjoy delicious home-cooked food. 

We also run regular events at the bike skills area which includes several jumps and a northshore and 2 separate pump tracks.

Walking

We have loads of walking books and can recommend different routes either along the fantantic Wales coastal path only 15 miles away, or in the many inland beauty spots. We have many local walks and have just created a short walk around our farm for our guests.

Fishing

The river Teifi is renowned as being one of the best sea trout and salmon fishing rivers in the UK. There is excellent local river guiding and tuition available from well-known instructors. Sewin is primarily a Welsh fish and many fishermen travel to Wales from April onwards to take advantage of this. Those more interested in salmon fishing will find late summer and autumn the best time. Day and week visitor permits are available from Llandysul Angling Association – see our links page.
