Newcastle Emlyn

The pretty market town of Newcastle Emlyn lies on the river Teifi in the counties of Carmarthenshire and Ceredigion in West Wales, situated 10 miles south-east of Cardigan and 8 miles west of Llandysul.

Visitors to Newcastle Emlyn can explore the 13th century castle ruins overlooking the winding river Teifi below. Founded around 1240 by the Welsh Prince, Maredudd ap Rhys, Newcastle Emlyn castle is unique in that very few Welsh-built stone castles can be found in West Wales. Following a series of attacks and refurbishments over the following centuries, the castle was finally blown up with gunpowder in 1645 during the English Civil war. Today visitors can walk amongst the ruins of the walls and gatehouse that still remain.

From Castle Street car park, visitors can enjoy a relaxing circular walk along the banks of the river Teifi. For younger visitors, the playing fields situated at the end of Church Lane provide an excellent children’s playground and plenty of space to run around. Newcastle Emlyn also has its own football and rugby teams as well as a leisure centre and swimming pool located on the outskirts of the town.

Along Newcastle Emlyn’s main street you will find an inviting selection of cafés, restaurants, and pubs as well as an interesting range of independent shops. The town is also well-served by a choice of banks, chemists, food stores, and a post office.

Parking in Newcastle Emlyn is available in the pay and display car parks located on Castle Street and Tan Yard Lane. A large pay and display car park is also available next to the cattle market, signposted off College Street and off New Road. Public conveniences can be found at the cattle market car park and beneath the clock tower on Market Place.
