- Discover a number of beautiful lakes near the source of the Teifi River in the stark, wild and beautiful western slopes of the Cambrian Mountains. Llyn Teifi is 1 such lake, 3 miles east of the small village of Ffair Rhos.
- Traditionally, medieval castles were designed with a keep at the centre but Cilgerran Castle is unusual with two massive round towers instead. These, despite Owain Glyn D?rs best efforts, still stand today. Take a walk around this stunning castle overlooking the Teifi Valley cared for by the `National Trust. Dogs welcome on leads.
