Named for its spectacular views across to Cardigan Island just 200 metres offshore, this unique Farm Park which also overlooks the Teifi estuary and Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, is located on a picturesque headland in the southern part of Cardigan Bay. The island itself is a private nature reserve owned by The Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales. The Farm Park is situated on part of a farm, Clyn-Yr-Ynys. A family has farmed within the Cardigan area since the 1600’s, and at Clyn-Yr-Ynys itself since 1884, a period spanning 5 generations and counting. The Farm Park was opened in 1993 and it is very much a family run business. Say hello to the farm animals; enjoy fenced clifftop walks to the headland from where you can watch seals in the wild that breed in the caves below the Farm Park cliffs or spot frequent dolphin visitors; browse in the gift shop, with a selection of toys and books as well as local and Welsh crafts; children will enjoy the indoor and outdoor play areas; have a bite to eat in the café and enjoy the scenery.

Sightseeing

Cenarth Falls is a cascade of waterfalls just upstream of the road bridge in the village of Cenarth in Ceredigion, bordering Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire, Wales. They are notable as the first significant barrier on the River Teifi that salmon and migratory seatrout encounter on their return to their home river as they make their way upstream to spawn. Because of this, and the very attractive setting of the falls in a natural wooded valley, the falls have become a significant visitor attraction in Ceredigion, including in the autumn when the fish can be watched leaping up the falls.

Cilgerran Castle (Welsh: Castell Cilgerran) is a 13th-century ruined castle located in Cilgerran, Pembrokeshire, Wales, near Cardigan. The first castle on the site was thought to have been built by Gerald of Windsor around 1110–1115, and it changed hands several times over the following century between English and Welsh forces. In the hands of William Marshal, 2nd Earl of Pembroke, the construction of the stone castle began after 1223. After passing through successive families, it was left to ruin and eventually abandoned by 1400. The castle backs onto a cliff face, with the remaining ruins dating from the 13th century. It was most heavily fortified where it faces inland, and includes a pair of drum towers, rather than a central keep, which remain standing. It passed into the hands of the National Trust in 1938, who open it to the public.

Mwnt is a haven for wildlife, one of the best places in Ceredigion to spot dolphins and always popular for days out on the beach. On beautiful sunny days families flock to Mwnt to enjoy this hidden cove’s golden sand and rolling waves. When visiting, a walk to the top of Foel y Mwnt is a must, take in the panoramic views over Cardigan Bay and see if you’re lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the mountains of Snowdonia in the distance. Dolphins can often be seen playing in the bay, with Mwnt locally recognised as one of the best places to regularly spot them. Located on the Ceredigion coast, a few miles north of Cardigan town centre, you’ll drive down the windy country lines to be presented with dramatic views over Cardigan Bay upon arrival. To reach the beach there is a series of steps leading down to the sheltered sandy bay. You can also reach the beach by walking the local stretches of Wales’ Coastal Path. On site facilities include the National Trust car park, toilets run by Ceredigion Council and a kiosk selling ice creams and all those little essentials you need to enjoy your day on the beach.

Food scene

Gwynfor and Thelma Adams have been farming for over 42 years, the cheesemaking business was established in April 1987 as a response to the E.C milk quotas which had threatened the viability of the family farm. Thelma and Gwynfor's initiative is acknowledged to have instigated and led the revival of Welsh Farmhouse Caerffili and Caws Cenarth is now the oldest established producer of Welsh Farmhouse Caerffili. Drawing on skills derived from a long family tradition of cheesemaking. Gwynfor remembers as a small child helping his mother to fill the large 40lb moulds and Thelma has fond memories of watching her mother turn the surplus milk from the two family cows into a moreish white Caerffili cheese using very basic cheesemaking utensils. However, times have moved on and now the Adams have the benefit of modern stainless steel equipment but the cheese is still made entirely by hand in the time - honoured way and is even pressed in cast iron presses which are now over a hundred years old. Some of these presses even carry the names of local towns such as Carmarthen and Cardigan. We extend a cordial welcome to visit us to watch the cheesemaking free of charge from our special Visitor Centre. We will even offer you free samples of all our award winning cheeses. We are open all year but it is essential to check beforehand for, as much as we love our life on the farm, we do have to be away occasionally.
