Newcastle Emlyn takes its name from the cantref of Emlyn which was an administrative district in Medieval Dyfed. The cantref was made part of the Norman March in the 12th century.
Straddling the Ceredigion and Cramarthen border, Newcastle Emlyn provides a perfect base from which to explore the best of both counties.
Boasting small town, unhurried charm, a coterie of fine pubs and 13th century Norman castle, this little village has plenty to offer.
The Teifi valley railway is a very popular attraction, whilst the National Wool Museum, the National Coracle Centre and the West Wales Museum of Childhood are both only a stones throw away.
