The salmon especially is of exceptional quality. The river Teifi is also ideal for hikers who love to discover idyllic waterfalls, old bridges, historic churches, etc ...

Those who enjoy sports won't be disappointed. Several mountain bike trails traverse the landscape (for example Brechfa Forest.) In the adjoining village of Llandysul there are many activities such as canoeing, rock climbing, white water rafting amongst many others. For those who want to explore the region from above, a private helicopter flight can be arranged.

The local pubs offer their guests honest food with their familiar friendliness and hospitality. Carmarthen is an excellent and close base for shopping. Lampeter is one of the oldest universities in the UK and has specialised in religious studies. The bigger cities Swansea and especially Cardiff have plenty of shopping and cultural opportunities.

The sea is half an hour drive away where you can enjoy beautiful walks along the cliffs, deserted beaches and a blue sea. In New Quay you can take a boat trip, and view dolphins up close and admire the whales further away.

Powys Castle is one of the finest gems of Great Britain and worth a visit. Travelling south you will find the picturesque coastal town of Tenby with its coloured houses and you will have the opportunity of travelling to Caldey Island by boat. Here is a modern and historic abbey with roots to the Cistercian abbey in Belgium, perhaps explaining the chocolate processing on the island).

St David’s is also worth a trip, the first Christian pilgrims made a base here which today holds the magnificent cathedral and the ruins of a Bishop’s Palace.
