Nestled on the banks of the river Teifi there are plenty of opportunities to explore the river and its wildlife
If exploring the river bank, skimming stones, paddling or even a spot of wild swimming in the dramatic Alltcafan Gorge donít fulfil your thirst for watery adventure then there are plenty of opportunities locally for canoeing, with stretches of calm or white water nearby, there is something for all abilities.
The river draws wildlife to it like a magnet. Listen out for the call of kingfishers as they dash past, sit quietly of an evening and you might spot the otters playing and the trout leaping for mayflies.
The river is always changing: a new stretch of shingle beach exposed one year, a slice of bank gone the next. Some days the Teifi is in reflective mood: quiet and at ease, others she is exuberant, rushing and racing, in full flow. The changing moods of the river add another narrative to your stay with us.
Unfortunately fishing is not available from our banks but the Teifi Trout Association licences the opposite bank and beats further downstream, and day permits are available.
Source to Sea
Rising at Llyn Tefi the river forms much of the border between the counties of Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire, and for the final 3 miles of its total length of 73 miles, the boundary between Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire. Its estuary is northwest of Cardigan (previously one of the west coast of Britainís most important ports), meeting the West Wales coastline (and coast path) spilling out to sea at the beautiful Poppit Sands, near St Dogmaels.
