St Dogmaels is a village on the estuary of the River Teifi, a mile downstream from the town of Cardigan in neighbouring Ceredigion. St Dogmaels has a small supermarket and a number of public houses and restaurants, plus there are excellent facilities for launching boats, canoes and kayaks. The village contains the remains of a 12th Century Tironian abbey. Adjacent to the abbey ruins lies the Anglican St. Thomas parish church, which appears successively to have occupied at least three sites close to or within the abbey buildings. The present one is a Victorian building and contains the Ogam Sagranus stone. Plays by Shakespeare are performed annually in the abbey in the summer months. A little to the west of the village, further along the estuary, lies Poppit Sands beach. Poppit Sands is the most northerly beach in Pembrokeshire, with a large expanse of flat sand which is backed by sand dunes. It is becoming a very popular beach within the adventure sports groups. From Poppit, the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path winds its way up on to the headland, where fine views north of the Ceredigion coastline can be found.
