Description: This area is blessed with a wealth of historic attractions such as Cilgerran and Cardigan Castles. The stunning Teifi Marshes are a haven for a wide variety of wildlife.

The estuary of the River Teifi is at the centre of spectacular landscapes and seascapes. The river valley is an area of Special Area of Conservation and the Teifi marshes are home to a wide range of wildlife such as osprey, otters and water buffalo. Soak up the atmosphere that surrounds you at Cilgerran Castle and look out over the estuary to understand why the castle is located here. This walk is great for kids with its nature and history as well as a good way to burn off excess energy.
