Disability access

   It is our objective as owners to provide an equal welcome for all visitors and guests.

  On request, text of all our hard copy information will be supplied in large print for the benefit of those who require help.

  There is level access to the whole of the museum, tea rooms, shop and toilets.

  Designated parking spaces for staff and visitors who are in any way disabled are located nearest to the tea rooms.

  WC facilities provided are specifically designed for the use of visitors or members of the public whose mobility is restricted.   The easy access toilet is uni-sex to allow carers and users to be together.

  Low-floor buses passing between Cardigan and Carmarthen do stop at our site gate.

  The entire site is 'no smoking' as we hope to continue to benefit those with respiratory conditions or allergies.

Teifi Valley landscape


One of the dominant river valleys of West Wales -the Teifi offers excellent walking country which is steeped in rural and early industrial tradition. The National Woollen Museum at Drefach Felindre, Steam Days at the Teifi Valley Preserved Railway at Henllan, canoeing at Llandysul, coracle fishing for sewin and salmon at Cenarth and the ancient and busy town of Newcastle Emlyn make this a magical part of the region.
