The quaint town on Llandysul is located on the river Teifi on the border between Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire. The river Teifi at Llandysul is a mecca for anglers and canoeists.
Llandysul's oldest building is the 13th century Church of St Tysul. Inside the church is an ancient early Christian inscribed stone, called the Velfor Stone it commemorates Velvoria, daughter of Brohomaglus and inscribed in Latin and Ogham, an ancient Irish language - evidence of Irish settlers here at the time.
Historically, Llandysul was the hub of
the Welsh woollen industry where thousands of people were employed in the water
driven mills during the industrial revolution - weavers, spinners, dyers,
knitters, drapers, tailors. A few working mills still exist – such as Rock Mill at nearby Capel-Dewi. The National Wool Museum at nearby Drefach Felindre features working looms and weaving machines and lots of events and activities throughout the year.
The river Teifi at Llandysul is world renowned for brown trout, ‘sewin’ (sea trout) and salmon fishing and the Llandysul Angling Association welcomes day members and visitors for 30 miles of prime fishing. The river is also the focus for white water canoeing.
Llandysul is a 'Walkers are Welcome' town and the surrounding Teifi Valley has some excellent footpaths to follow. If you're looking for somewhere to stay in Ceredigion, take a look at our accommodation pages.
