Llandysul is a small town in the county of Ceredigion, Wales. As a community, it consists of the villages of Capel Dewi, Horeb, Pont Sian, Pren-gwyn, Tregroes, Rhydowen and the village of Llandysul itself. The town is famous for fishing, walking and watersports.
In its heyday, Llandysul was home to the Welsh woolen industry, being perfectly situated rurally, with plenty of sheep reared for wool and fast-flowing streams for power. The town gained its ‘Walkers Are Welcome’ status in 2009, being one of the first communities in Wales to garner the accolade, and therefore, has a commitment to keeping footpaths and walking trails open and in a good state of repair. Each year, the local group Llandysul Paddlers host the Llandysul River Festival, consisting of a mixture of camping, canoeing, and kayaking.
‘The Powerhouse’ is a community and arts centre designed to host a variety of activities, and housed in a historic building beside the River Teifi that originally generated power for the local residential houses and businesses.
Situated equal distances away from tourist hotspots like New Quay, Cardigan, and Carmarthen, Llandysul is seen as a fantastic central location to base yourself to explore any region of West Wales, whether that be Ceredigion, Carmarthenshire or Pembrokeshire.
Within the town itself, there are a number of wonderful, eclectic, and award-winning shops, artisans, cafes, and businesses who are essential to the local economy, and offers great local amenities for those who are staying in the area.
