Pontrhydfendigaid, Ceredigion
The village of Pontrhydfendigaid lies on the western flank of the Cambrian Mountains in Ceredigion Mid Wales. It is located between Devil's Bridge and Tregaron on the B4574 in the shadows of the mountains of Dibyn Du (530m) and Pen y Bwlch (503m). Pontrhydfendigaid straddles the River Teifi and is indeed just 5km south east from the source of the Teifi at Llyn Teifi.
There are several walks in the area including the walk to Llyn Teifi and the Teifi Pools, a group of lakes that include Llyn Teifi, Llyn Hir, Llyn Gorlan, and Llyn Egnant. The landscape around the lakes is stark, wild, and extraordinarily beautiful, and there are good views down to Cors Caron (Tregaron Bog) and the Teifi Valley. The village is popular with walkers and cyclists and those looking for some peace in the Welsh countryside and being just 36 minutes away from the seaside resort of Aberaeron, visitors have the choice of mountain-side or sea-side.
A View of Devil's Bridge
In the village centre visitors can find small, independent shops, all worth a look around, as well as a children's adventure playground and the Pavilion, a recently renovated centre which attracts Welsh musicians and performers throughout the year. Pontrhydfendigaid is most famous however for the Strata Florida Abbey, located just outside the village.
The Cistercian abbey was founded in 1164 and is the burial place of many Princes of Ceredigion and Deheubarth (formerly in South West Wales), as well as the Welsh bard Dafydd ap Gwilym. The abbey is now in the hands of Cadw and can still be visited today.
Fifteen minutes away is the village of Devil's Bridge, famed for the three bridges, lying one on top of another and its many waterfalls and whirlpools. Looking for accommodation in Pontrhydfendigaid Hotels, guesthouses and self-catering cottages can be found in the area, as well as camp sites if you fancy going a little bit more outdoors.
