About the location


Lampeter 7.7 miles, Aberystwyth 20.6 miles

The village of Llanddewi-Brefi is situated in the town of Ceredigion, a historical village of religious significance, dating back to the 7th century. Nestled in the foothills of the Cambrian Mountains at the intersection of several valleys, it provides the village with its unique layout. There is always a warm welcome at the local public houses, shop and local bed and breakfast establishments. The village hall and grounds in Llanddewi-Brefi are the venue for the annual agricultural and horticultural show, and the playing field is the home ground of the local team; Dewi Stars, who play in the Ceredigion League. The area is of extraordinary natural beauty, with footpaths along the old Drovers lanes, local rivers up into the Cambrian Mountains, and is also home to celebrated craft and food producers. The Cambrian Mountains are a must-see as they are one of the few remote wilderness areas left in Southern Britain, with their wild open moorland and verdant landscapes, they are acknowledged as some of the most scenic routes in Britain. Climb Pumlumon to the highest of its five summits for unbroken views as far as the mountains of Snowdonia and Llyn Peninsula to the north, and the Brecon Beacons and Pembrokeshire to the south. Just over 20 miles away is the delightful, chocolate-box seaside town of Aberystwyth, home to Vale of Rheidol Railway, Aberystwyth Castle, Aberystwyth Cliff Railway and Devils Bridge Falls, a world famous tourist attraction featuring truly unique waterfalls in the Rheidol Gorge. A stunning location in a lovely part of Wales.
