Neal BatchelorI recently retired from the Telecoms industry and am passionate about the great outdoors of Wales so much so that I recently decided to move to West Wales to live after enjoying regular weekends and holidays here over many years and not really wanting to go home

Event Details

The Teifi Pools are a collection of picturesque fishing lakes scattered across the wild uplands of Powys.


Strata Florida ruins are the resting place of Welsh princes and one of Wales most significant historic sites. Here there is a toilet and a seasonal cafe. Entrance to the abbey is chargeable as managed by Cadw.

We head off from the abbey along a quiet lane for the first part of the walk passing a reservoir to reach a bridleway signed for the Teifi Pools. The route soon takes us over a ford and gradually climbs through the beautiful valley of Nant Egnant to a cairn at the summit of Cwm Egnant. The path ahead eventually reaches the dam wall of the first lake – Llyn Egnant. Here we can take in the views and grab a few photos.

We then make our way towards Llyn Teifi, the largest of the Teifi Pools and the source of the River Teifi, stopping for lunch at a top spot called Claerddu Bothy.
