The West Wales/Pembrokeshire region
Wales is a place of natural beauty and diversity. The north east of Wales features some traditional seaside towns and spectacular views and is a great place to stay. The West coast has some great coastal walks and lovely sandy beaches to discover. Surfing and dog walking is popular in this area. The north west has highlights including Mount Snowdon and the Isle of Anglesey in this magical part of Wales; you will find a break here relaxing or if you fancy going for a climb then it would be adventurous. The south coast of Wales has sandy beaches but also the benefit of access some of Wales' largest cities including the capital Cardiff. The Brecon Beacons are full of steep mountain escarpments, waterfalls and spectacular views. In mid Wales you will begin to discover the appeal of the Valleys. And finally, Pembrokeshire has jagged coastlines, secret bays and some of the finest coastal towns line this area and you can see why people return every year to holiday there.
The town lies on the northern side of the Teifi estuary point with Pembrokeshire to the south; it has a population of 4,200 and is an important regional centre. The castle was built in 1093 after the Normans had conquered the area; they were subsequently defeated and in 1176 the castle was the site of the first National Eisteddfod. Although much of the most recent castle to be built at Cardigan is now in ruins, the imposing outer walls remain to dominate the historically important river crossing and there are plans to convert it into a heritage centre.
In the C18th and early C19th century, Cardigan was a busy seaport with over 300 ships and an important shipbuilding industry. However, the Teifi silted up and by the early 1900s the port was largely inactive.
The Teifi Valley is a Special Area of Conservation whilst, seaward, lies the Cardigan Bay Special Area of Conservation. Ceredigion's Heritage Coast stretches northward from the Teifi Estuary with the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park extending to the south.
Cardigan's Theatr Mwldan offers a cinema, arts and entertainment as well as excellent indoor sports and leisure facilities. Cardigan Island Coastal Farm Park is located near to Cardigan and visitors can enjoy beautiful scenery, an island nature reserve, dramatic cliffs and maritime flowers. Farm animals include a donkey, pigs, sheep, goats, rare breed cattle, Shetland ponies, Welsh mountain ponies, rabbits, guinea pigs plus some from further afield, such as a wallaby, Vietnamese pigs, emus, rhea and a llama.
The village of St Dogmael's is just south of Cardigan and contains the remains of an Abbey, founded around 1115 for Tironian monks and there are extensive remains dating from the twelfth to sixteenth centuries. A visitor centre, with exhibitions, cafe and shop is next to the Abbey.
Close by is Y Felin, one of the last working water mills in Wales producing traditional stone ground flour. Guided tours of this restored mill are available and the mill shop includes a large selection of flours and local produce. The very popular Poppit Sands are to the north of St Dogmael's on the Teifi estuary and the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path starts from here.
South-east of Cardigan is the village of Cilgerran with a striking castle. In 1223 it was captured by the Earl of Pembroke, who rebuilt the castle in its present form; although largely in ruins, two substantial towers remain. The castle sits on a rocky promontory above the River Teifi and has inspired many artists, including Turner. The castle is a National Trust property, looked after by Cadw and special events are often held here.
The Welsh Wildlife Centre is also at Cilgerran and stands within the Teifi Marshes Nature Reserve on the banks of the River Teifi. The stunning building is constructed largely of wood and glass and has panoramic views over the Teifi, Cardigan and woodland. The Centre contains an informative interactive indoor display of local natural and social history about the River Teifi and Cilgerran and interactive screens with live camera feed from off the Teifi Marshes Nature Reserve.
Also on site is a shop with a wide range of wildlife related gifts and books and craft producers from the local counties showcase some of the best art and craft produced in the area. The Center has a caf? plus an adventure playground with lots of play equipment.
