The Surrounding Area

The locality

Ffynnon Cadno is an ideal centre for exploring Mid Wales and the Cambrian Bay coast. The bustling University and market town of Aberystwyth is about 15 minutes by car and Devil’ s Bridge with its famous gorge is 4 miles away.

George Borrow walked through the village in 1854 whilst writing Wild Wales and the local Hotel is named after him.

Activities in the area

Situated close to Glyndwr’s Way and The Cambrian Way we are right in the middle of good walking country. Plynlimon
can be seen from the village and is easily accessible as are several other interesting walks including the marked trails at Nant yr Arian Forestry Centre

There is good game, coarse and sea angling available locally. Dinas and Nantymoch reservoirs are close to the village and day tickets are available. There are also coarse lakes within a few miles and excellent sea angling in Aberystwyth both from boat and beach!

There are some excellent mountain biking tracks at the World famous Nant yr Arian Centre.

The area is perfect for bird watching. The most famous bird to be seen from Ffynnon Cadno is the rare Red Kite. Once nearly extinct in Britain this part of Mid Wales is its stronghold and regularly one can see 40-50 kites when they are fed daily an Nant Yr Arian.

The large garden at Ffynnon Cadno with its diversity of vegetation including a large beech wood is a good place to see up to 40 species of birds.
