Festive Fare amidst the flora & fauna of the Teifi Marshes. 

Enjoy a festive treat amidst the tree tops in The Welsh Wildlife Centre's Glasshouse Café, tuck in to fabulous home made festive fare while taking the chance to survey the stunning Teifi Marshes Nature Reserve.

The Autumn and Winter months are a very rewarding time to pay us a visit with many species of birds being spotted from high up in the café. Highlights have been Goshawk, Great White Egret, Merlin and the stunning sight of the near silent Barn Owl soaring past the Visitor Centre.

An equally impressive sight at this time of year in the late afternoon or early evening is the Starling murmuration visible from the Café or from the top meadow. The birds swoop and dive in formation overhead before diving down on to the Teifi Marshes below.

Keep an ear tuned for the sound of the wild Red Deer who visit the reserve in the Autumn for the annual rut. These most impressive animals can be seen in the fields along the approach to the Visitor Centre and along the paths that transverse the reserve.

We will be serving our Christmas menu from 25 November through to 20 December with both two & three course options available. Booking is essential as everything is home made here in our kitchen by our talented Chefs.
