Plant Lovers guide to Ceredigion

A county best known for its beautiful and rugged coastline, magical coves and hidden beaches has other, relatively unknown, tricks up its sleeve.  Venture inland and you will find a wealth of greenery among hill and dale, in nook and cranny, and down delightful country roads away from the hustle and bustle of the coast.  This is the Ceredigion where Lovers thrive.

Ceredigion’s climate and acid soil provide the perfect conditions for a Plant Lovers’ paradise.  The landscape is lit up by out spectacular hedges of laburnum during spring.  Ancient woodlands carpeted with bluebells, verges studded with orchids and swathes of gorse-covered hills add to the drama.  With a host of fabulous gardens and specialist nurseries nestled comfortably amidst this natural beauty, and a thriving cluster of garden and plant-loving clubs and organisations, Ceredigion is so much more than just a coastline.

Teifi Valley Cheese Cluster

[hana-flv-player video=”http://www.cynnalycardi.org.uk/cym/wp-content/uploads/vids/gaws.flv” width=”320″ height=”240″ description=”” player=”3″ autoload=”false” autoplay=”false” loop=”false” autorewind=”true” splashimage=”http://www.cynnalycardi.org.uk/cym/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/cluster22.jpg” /]

With its lush pasture and stunning scenery it is no wonder that the Teifi Valley in the heart of south-west Wales has been likened to the ‘Loire Valley’ of Welsh cheesemaking.  The River Teifi, which gives the area its name, begins its 75 mile journey 1,500 feet up on the western flanks of the Cambrian Mountains. From there is meanders through internationally acclaimed countryside, historic sites, villages and towns before entering the estuary at Cardigan and flowing out to sea in Cardigan Bay.

Carmarthenshire Cheese Company, Caws Cenarth, Hafod Organic Welsh Cheddar, Teifi Farmhouse Cheese, and Sancler Organic are all renowned for their quality and taste. We hope you will get a flavour of the skill and passion that the Teifi Valley Cheese Producers have for their cheeses, and will want to try them for your yourself.
