Camping in Newcastle Emlyn

Newcastle Emlyn is a town, straddling the counties of Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire in west Wales (though officially it is in Carmarthenshire), lying on the River Teifi.

Adpar is 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.

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 ap Iorwerth).

Unlike many small rural towns across Wales, Newcastle Emlyn has managed to maintain a wide range of local services, based mainly on small family businesses. The town's largest employer is the Saputo factory which manufactures Mozzarella cheese using locally sourced dairy produce.
