The pretty village lies alongside the River Teifi which marks the boundary between Pembrokeshire and Cardiganshire and leads to the fabulous white beach of Poppit Sands. The Coach House Heritage Centre and Cafe are located beside the old Priory and provides an interesting interpretation facility for the internationally important collection of inscribed Christian stones dating from the early Celtic times between the 6th and 10th centuries.
St Dogmaels Abbey founded in the 12th century occupies a site once used by pre Norman monastery. Y Felin Watermill is one of only two working water mills in Wales. Guided tours are available. There are several choices of places to eat and drink including The Coach House, The Ferry Inn, The Teifi Netpool Inn, The White Hart and The Webley Hotel. There is a deli and cafe in the High Street and a cafe at Poppit Sands. A favourite with the locals - Bowen fish and chips with a bottle of wine.
