Newcastle Emlyn Castle is situated overlooking the Teifi river, and is now mostly ruins of the stone building it once was. Believed to have been built using Dyfed welsh stone, this castle has been subject to many attacks up until 1645 when it was blown up with gunpowder during the English Civil War.
Helen opened her own purpose built studio and gallery just outside Newcastle Emlyn by the banks of the River Teifi in November 2008 and has been welcoming visitors ever since. She is inspired by her local area and paints in a colourful, vivid, naive style with an instantly recognisable approach. Her work has been exhibited in France, Germany, Poland and New York but you can catch her work a little close to home. You'll be able to see work in progress and new original paintings before they head out to other galleries and browse the fine art prints.

Beaches near Highfield House

Tresaith
Tresaith is a delightful little sandy beach, very popular with families during the summer offering safe swimming and rock pools. There is a waterfall at the northern end of the beach which is a result of glacial activity when a glacier blocked and diverted the route of the river Saith, causing it to cascade in a waterfall directly onto the beach. Dolphins can be spotted almost daily throughout the Summer.
St Dogmaels
Near the mouth of the River Teifi, on the southern side opposite Cardigan, stands St Dogmaels. It is essentially a seafaring village, as examination of headstones in the churchyard will testify. The remains of an Abbey founded by Robert Fitz-Martin in the 12th century are worth a visit. Poppit Sands a little further down the estuary has a beautiful and extensive beach which denotes the start (or the end!) of the 186-mile Pembrokeshire Coast Path.
Cwmtydu
Primarily a pebble beach, Cwmtydu Beach is a small cove with plenty of rockpools. A popular place for spotting dolphins as seals, mean that this cove is often known locally as Seals Bay, due to the frequent views of seals lounging on the rocks. Cwmtydu Beach is dog friendly all year round.
Poppit Sands
Poppit Sands is a sandy beach, backed with sand dunes at the mouth of the Teifi Estuary. It is the beginning, or end, of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. The proximity of the beach to the town of Cardigan has made it a very popular venue for visitors, but bathers should be aware of dangerous currents and heed the warning signs and lifeguard flags. It is a blue flag bathing beach making it an ideal holiday location. Lifeguards patrol the beach between July and August from 10am to 6pm each day. Dog restrictions apply to a section of the beach between 1st May and 30th September, but the rest of the beach remains dog friendly. 

New Quay's Blue Flag Award-winning, harbour beach is popular with many visitors. It's pale sand and clear water makes a picture perfect setting for a relaxing day in the sun. Its fabulous cafe serves hot and cold drinks, light snacks and sells many of the usual beach accessories. Toilets with disabled access and a shower are available at the top of the footpath that leads down to the main beach. Ample car parking is available around the village, all are ticket machined. There is additional disabled parking available above the main beach, but get there early as it is limited. Dogs are banned between 1st May and 30th September, and dog bins are situated along the beach. 

Ceibwr Bay
Ceibwr is an attractive little bay, totally undeveloped and the haunt of shy seabirds and Grey Atlantic seals, with the nearby village of Moylegrove within walking distance. The cliff walking is high, craggy and awesomely beautiful whatever the weather or season. The cliffs show evidence of impressive forces at work circa 400 million years ago when Ceibwr was created - admire the elegant folds and scrolls in the rock face. The ruins of a fine Celtic fortress can be found on the northern cliff edge. The more romantic can envisage the smugglers taking advantage of such a remote spot along with the ideal locality of the cave on the beach. This area is for those seeking a quiet holiday near the amenities of Cardigan and Newport but away from the more popular sandy beaches and busy centres. There is a car park with toilets in Moylegrove and roadside parking closer to the cove with space for approx 20-25 vehicles.
Newport
A superb long stretch of beach with lots of room to play games and sail boats. The beach is backed by a popular golf course with club house. At low tide you can walk across the estuary to Newport Parrog, and the walk around the river bank through a bird sanctuary to the road bridge crossing is always enjoyable. Visitors should be careful of dangerous currents around the river. Nature has given Newport a spectacular setting of sea, castle and the towering Carn Ingli – at 1100-feet this makes for a wonderful view from the beach. Access to the beach is easy – no steps or cliffs.
Newport
This large, picturesque horseshoe shaped bay is generally well protected from the winds and waves that pound much of the Pembrokeshire coastline. The historic town of Newport stands near the mouth of the River Nevern where there are 2 beaches - one on each side of the estuary. The Parrog is on the Southern side, and although this is the more sheltered beach, unpredictable currents make bathing dangerous. However, the area is rich in prehistoric sites, including Pentre Ifan burial chamber. To find the beach follow the signs from Newport and the A487. It is dog friendly all year round. 
Aberfforest
Aberfforest Beach is a small bay made up of a mixture of sand and shingle, situated between two majestic cliffs and just under two miles from the local villages of Newport and Dinas. 
Accessible via a long footpath, which leads along a wide farm track (follow Aberfforest signs) almost all the way to the beach, or alternatively along the Pembrokeshire Coast Path from Cwm Yr Eglwys, this beach is quiet and peaceful - perfect for a relaxing day by the seaside, a picnic or taking a few beautiful photographs.  
Aberfforest is a great beach for swimming and kayaking, and is a popular haunt for seals. 
A special little gem that you mustn’t miss out on, is the secret waterfall which is nestled in the wooded valley just behind the beach. It is definitely worth a visit.
Cwm Yr Eglwys
Cwm-yr-Eglwys is a petite, eye-catching cove popular with families, kayakers and sea swimmers. Overlooking the picturesque shingle and pebble beach are the remains of the 12th Century church of St Brynach's, which was destroyed during a fierce storm in 1859. To find Cwm-yr-Eglwys follow the narrow, twisting road off the A487 just to the east of Dinas Cross.

Historic Places near Highfield House

Newcastle Emlyn
The River Teifi has made its way through the hard rocks to produce a spectacular series of waterfalls. There has been a Mill at Cenarth at least since the 13th century, the river Teifi surrounding the mill is a well known salmon leap where the fish can be watched leaping up the falls.
Newcastle Emlyn
Newcastle Emlyn Castle is situated overlooking the Teifi river, and is now mostly ruins of the stone building it once was. Believed to have been built using Dyfed welsh stone, this castle has been subject to many attacks up until 1645 when it was blown up with gunpowder during the English Civil War.
Newcastle Emlyn
The National Wool Museum is set in the Teifi valley, this museum displays the historical woollen industry which once was such a significant part of Welsh culture. See the historically used machinery and view the entire process of turning fleece into fabric with the purpose-built raised walkway. Follow "A Woolly Trail" and give carding, sewing and spinning a go!
Carmarthen
The Teifi Valley has been the centre of the Welsh woollen trade since the nineteenth century, the mill at Dre-fach Felindre on Teifiside was chosen by the National Museum of Wales to house its Museum of the Welsh Woollen Industry, where Melin Teifi still produces the finest traditional Welsh flannel using top-quality materials and local craftsmanship. Melin Teifi concentrates upon the production of flannel, tweed, blanket, quilts, shawls, also commissions, Welsh costumes, flannel shirts, smocks etc.
The West Wales Museum of Childhood offers a real insight into childhood and toys of the past. With teddy bears, dolls houses, Dinky toys, railway miniatures and various film/television related toys - there is plenty to see! Make an afternoon of it and pop into their tea rooms before or after your visit!
Cardigan
Cilgerran Castle is situated in a stunning location overlooking the Teifi with two massive round towers still standing today. This was first established by the Normans as a ringwork castle and is approximately 800 years old. Entry to this castle is free during the winter months, and is free all year round to National Trust Members and the disabled. Please Note: Dogs must be kept on leads.
Cardigan
Cardigan Castle is a magnificent castle which boasts some 900 years of history. It was once captured by Rhys ap Gruffudd who hosted an Eisteddfod, has been visited by King Edward I and Henry Tudor, it has been subject to burning leaving it partially demolished, before being purchased by Ceredigion County Council in 2003 and undertaking serious renovations enabling it to open its doors to the public as a heritage attraction in 2015.
St Dogmaels
Adjacent to St. Dogmaels Abbey and alongside a mill pond, this is one of the last working water mills in Wales which produces a range of stoneground flour.
St. Dogmael's Abbey was founded on the banks of the River Teifi in 1115 for Tironian Monks, before being given the status of Abbey in 1120. Fortunately there are extensive remains to visit today, original 15th Century floor tiles can still be seen along the nave of which the west and north walls stand nearly to their original height. The Coach House is set in the surroundings of the Abbey ruins, and is now home to a museum and visitor centre where they have a collection of carved stones that were once part of the abbey on display.
Situated in North Pembrokeshire, Castell Henllys is an extraordinary day out for anyone interested in history. With a reconstructed Iron Age Hill fort, Castell Henllys is set in 26 acres of woodland on excavated remains from over 2000 years ago. Particularly interesting is the three large replica roundhouses, the granary and forge.
