Newcastle Emlyn cottages
There's plenty to discover in the local area when staying at our holiday cottages in Newcastle Emlyn. This town, most of which is in Carmarthenshire, lies on the banks of the River Teifi and is perfect for a memorable holiday in West Wales. The remains of a Norman castle are one of the most notable features of Newcastle Emlyn, which takes its name from the Cantref of Emlyn which was an administrative district in medieval times. The narrow-gauge steam Teifi Valley Railway has been laid on the trackbed of part of the former Great Western Railway from Pencader Junction off the Carmarthen to Aberystwyth line, which closed to passengers in 1952 and to freight traffic in 1973. Starting at Henllan to the east of the town, the Teifi Valley Railway uses restored locos dating back to the First World War and earlier.
Our Newcastle Emlyn holiday cottages are a great base for exploring the countryside and learning more about the heritage of the Welsh wool industry. Wool was historically the most important and widespread of Wales' industries and the Museum of the Welsh Woollen Industry is situated south-east of Newcastle Emlyn at Drefach Felindre. Located in the historic former Cambrian Mills, the museum follows the process from fleece to fabric, and a raised walkway gives a unique view of textiles in production at Melin Teifi, the site's commercial woollen mill.
