Sport and Activities.

Golfing – Fishing – Canoeing – Farm Parks – Steam Railways

Golf can be arranged at Cardigan Golf Club and Cwmrydneuadd Golf Club Llangrannog. The Cardigan Golf Club’s 18-Hole Par 72 links course is in the most beautiful setting which overlooks Cardigan Bay and the Teifi Estuary and presents an ever changing challenge.

The River Teifi, which flows through Cenarth is one of the premier salmon and sea trout rivers in Wales. Fishing is available on some 21 miles through the "Teifi Trout Association" or alternatively available from "The Salmon Leap" in Cenarth. Please note: everyone must be in possession of the National Rivers Authority license before commencing fishing.

At Cilgerran there is a canoeing centre based in the Wildlife centre that hires canoes and runs guided excursions down the River Teifi. Also on the Teifi at Llandysul is a centre offering courses in canoeing on a competition course.

Woollen Mills and Craft Centres
There are several woollen mills in the area, which specialise in producing a wide range of woollen fabrics from dress materials to upholstery fabrics and from knitting wool to blankets. Some of the larger mills have exhibitions that take the visitors through 700 years of weaving history. There are also numerous craft centres throughout the area from potteries to flour mills, cheese makers to slate workshops.

At Drefach Felindre, you will find the Museum of the Welsh Woollen Industry. There were once 40 mills around Drefach Felindre and the museum brings to life the story of this community. You will find a working woollen mill, a cafe, museum shop and riverside picnic area.

Steam Railways,

The Vale of Rheidol Railway is the finest way to explore the stunning scenery of the Rheidol valley. The line runs from Aberystwyth to Devils Bridge a distance of almost 12 miles. The railway follows the contours of the valley with many sharp curves and steep gradients which make for an interesting journey.  Birds of prey such as red Kite and Buzzards are often seen soaring high above the valley floor.

Try a ride on the Teifi Valley Railway at Henllan. This narrow gauge railway offers a 2 mile journey through lovely countryside with splendid views of the Teifi Valley.

The Gwili Steam Railway, near Carmarthen, takes you through wooded hills and open fields, along the river offering a living reminder of the Great Western Railway branch line following the route originally taken by the Carmarthen to Aberystwyth line.

Other Attractions
One of many in this part of West Wales, Cilgerran Castle - situated amongst woods on the rim of a steep gorge - is well worth a visit. You can reach Cilgerran Castle by taking a stroll along the riverside path from Llechryd Bridge. The beauty and tranquility along this stretch is breathtaking.

Farm Parks
There are farm parks and wild life centres to suit all ages. Whether you would enjoy feeding the animals or watching the cows being milked to watching the seals and dolphins in Cardigan Bay or perhaps admire the profusion of colour at the butterfly centre, Park Hall is the ideal base from which to do it.

For family days out, the choice is equally wide. Enjoy the attractions at Oakwood Leisure Park or Groveland Adventure World. The Dyfed Shire Horse Farm, Folly Farm and Heron's Brook also offer hurt for all. There are swimming pools and leisure centres in Newcastle Emlyn, Cardigan and Carmarthen.

The National Botanic Garden near Carmarthen is a must-see. Set in 100 acres, this is the first major botanic garden in the UK for over 200 years. It is centred on the Great Glass House, the largest single-span glasshouse in the world.

Also worth a visit is Aberglasney, a 16/17th century historic garden and house set in the picturesque Tywi Valley (as seen in the BBC series "Aberglasney - a garden lost in time").

Guest Comments

Nov 2015 Perfect house with excellent views. A family reunion with 4 generations, everyone loved Park Hall with lots to do inside and out, very well equipped with everything you need for a break away for all ages. The booking was simple and straightforward with fantastic communication with Carol and Roger. All the rooms were lovely and comfortable and the bedrooms had fantastic views. I can't recommend Park Hall enough.
