The sparsely populated countryside is a great area for walking and fishing and supports a wonderful range of wildlife. Red Kites and other interesting birds can be seen and otters and polecats live in the nature reserve of Cors Caron

Tregaron and Teifi Pools

Tregaron has an appealing frontier-feel with miles of empty hills beyond in one direction and the vast Cors Caron wetland in another.  Nearby is Strata Florida Abbey, a 12th century Cistercian monastery, its graveyard the burial place of many Welsh princes.

In the hills behind lies the remote and timeless landscape of the Teifi Pools (Llyn Teifi). Llyn Hir, the smallest of the lakes, is reputed to hold the best brown trout.  It’s easy to fish from the bank and permits are available from local Post Offices.

The Cambrian Mountains

The narrow valleys through the Cambrian Mountains range from ravines to broad valleys – all corridors for streams and rivers draining from the upper plateaux.

To the north are the uplands of the Ystwyth and Rheidol rivers, with the restored landscape walks at Hafod, the dramatic waterfalls of Devil’s Bridge and the forest recreation centre of Bwlch Nant yr Arian with its Red Kite feeding station, waymarked walking trails and some of the best mountain bike trails in Britain.

It is the special quality of remoteness which characterises this area and makes it of national significance.  Despite giving the impression of wildness, the landscape and its beauty are maintained by the local communities, landowners, farmers and estate managers who look after them. These people have helped mould the landscape for centuries, and continue to do so today.

The Cambrian Mountains website has a great map which encourages journeys of discovery across one of Europe’s oldest mountain ranges. Visit stunning mountain peaks and breath-taking waterfalls.

This forgotten part of Wales offers memorable experiences for all ages in a less touristy environment, with bushcraft, safaris, mountain biking, white water rafting, climbing, canoeing, gorge walking and stand-up paddle boarding all available.

The Cambrian Mountains area contains some of the darkest skies in Europe and are a popular destination for astronomers and astro-photographers alike. In summer see noctilucent clouds shimmering in the night sky, in Autumn the Milky Way stretches from horizon to horizon, and in winter and spring you can gaze in awe at myriad stars in the black skies.
