Places to Visit
Newcastle Emlyn is a bustling market town straddling the Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire border.
The ruined castle overlooks the River Teifi and points to the strategic importance once held by this town. Actually, there are two towns, to the north (on the Ceredigion side of the river) lies Adpar and to the south, Newcastle Emlyn (in Carmarthenshire).
There’s quite a lot to do in the local area, which is why we’ve put together a visitor’s guide to Newcastle Emlyn…
Consider yourself to be a bit of a history buff? Here are some interesting facts about this bustling market town!
There are a large number of local “eateries” – four tea rooms, three “takeaways”, an Indian restaurant, and six pubs with restaurants.
A wide variety of craft and antique shops reflect the importance of tourism to the area, but there are still very “traditional” ones as well – a butcher, a fishmonger and a baker that are renowned for their local produce. If you’re stopping nearby, it’s well worth stopping by and picking up some fresh ingredients to take back to your holiday cottage.
Among its shops and cafes, you’ll also find plenty of other amenities in the town. For visitors stopping outside of Newcastle Emlyn, there’s a decent car park within the town. Nearby, a children’s play area is ideal for giving the kids a chance to let off some steam after arriving.
Why we love it: This accessible bungalow allows up to two well-behaved dogs!
The charming four-bedroom Broheddwch is just a 15-minute drive away from the market town. Set within a secluded spot, guests can enjoy an abundance of scenic countryside walks while also being just a short drive from the coast. It boasts a large lawned garden with a private BBQ area, ideal for getting everyone together for alfresco dinners in warmer seasons.
