Crymych is at the heart of the Preselis, where in winter you’ll find snow-covered peaks under slate-grey skies, in the spring the fields dance with lambs, and if you return in the summer you’ll see blue skies reflect in the distant sea, with views stretching for miles across the Irish Sea. In the Autumn, Preseli walkers crunch through frosty grass, with boots breaking icy puddles, snacking on hedgerow blackberries as they go.

For centuries, many people have been drawn-in by the Preseli magic, returning again and again. Standing stones, neolithic sites and Iron Age forts abound in this area with its fascinating history and mythology. The Preselis are a fantastic star-gazing spot, with nearby Sychpant Pembrokeshire National Park picnic site being a recognised Dark Sky Discovery site. Pentre Ifan is a fantastic cromlech – an easy walk from the parking layby, it’s worth timing your visit with a clear sunrise or sunset. Foel Drygarn hill fort is another highlight just outside of Crymych; or head to Foel Eryr with its Bronze age burial cairn at the summit, it’s a short trip from here to Waun Mawn standing stones. To see ancient life in more detail, head to Castell Henllys Iron Age Fort – a village reconstruction with entertaining activities and demonstrations throughout the holidays.

Crymych grew up around the railway in the 19th century. Although the railway has long gone, it is today an ideal base for exploring the surrounding Preseli Hills. Nearby, Y Freni Fawr presents a challenging walk to its summit at 1300 feet where Roman Emperor Magnus Maximus allegedly came to hunt.

The small town has the usual amenities – a small supermarket and market, butchers, a couple of cafés, a pub, the Crymych Arms, Post Office, chemist and filling station. Crymych stands between Cardigan and Narberth, giving you a greater variety of shops, restaurants and entertainment. From Crymych, there is easy access to the beaches at Newport, Poppit Sands, and Aberporth as well as the Falls at Cenarth.
