Park
“This is part of a lovely walk that takes in the Teifi river, the gorge, wetlands and woods. This section is between the old bridge and the gorge where the old quarries were. It's flat, there's an off shoot of a circular path where you can stop off in bird hides and see all sorts - including buffalo from Easter to September. There's a very good cafe with plenty of vegetarian and vegan options. You can hire canoes from here too.”

Campground
“This unique farm park is stunningly located on a scenic headland, overlooking the nature reserve of Cardigan Island, which is just 200 yards off-shore, so it can be clearly viewed from the park. Cardigan Island is home to thousands of nesting sea-birds, so access has to be restricted. It also has a flock of wild Soay sheep, originally from the isle of Soay, south of Skye, Scotland. A colony of Atlantic grey seals breed in the many caves below the farm park cliffs and can be seen virtually every day. Cardigan Bay's bottlenose dolphins are frequent visitors to the waters surrounding the park, particularly during calm weather, when they swim closer to the shore. ”
