Carmarthen - Newcastle Emlyn
Newcastle Emlyn is a town straddling the counties of Ceredigion
and Carmarthenshire in west Wales (though officially it is in
Carmarthenshire) and lying on the River Teifi.
Adpar is the part of the town that lies on the Ceredigion side of
the River Teifi. It was formerly called Trefhedyn and was an ancient
Welsh borough in its own right.
The town takes its name from the cantrefof Emlyn which was an
administrative district in Medieval Dyfed. The cantref was made part
of the Norman March in the 12th century.
Notable buildings in the town include a ruined 13th-century castle,
first mentioned in Brut y Tywysogion in 1215, when it was seized by
Llewelyn the Great (Welsh: Llywelyn Fawr). The castle was captured
by the Welsh during the revolt of 1287-8 and also by Owain Glyndŵr
Newcastle Emlyn has a town hall and secondary school, Ysgol Gyfun
Emlyn. Attractions around the area include an art gallery, the Attic
Theatre company, the National Woollen Museum. The Teifi Valley
Railway is also nearby, although the town has not had a passenger
train service since 1952.

trees, and all connected by hand-made stepping stones.
Spend your evenings relaxing next to a glowing campfire, looking at
an endless sky of stars and waking to the sound of birdsong. This is
a quiet location, well away from busy roads and not far from both
the Carmarthen Bay and the Cardigan Bay coastlines. If you're
