LOCAL NATURAL BEAUTY
You’ll find authentic beaches just a short car ride away, but the real gems are just on our doorstep. Brynarian boasts miles of wildlife rich walks which capture a true snapshot of the Welsh countryside. There are a variety of walks to suit everyone, and you might even find a few surprises like Llamas and Alpacas on your trip!
Be sure to bring your camera, as the scenes nearby are a photographer’s dream. A short walk from the park will take you to miles of forestry and woodlands, and for those looking for a bit of adventure, there are even fishing lakes nearby.
Head to the nearby pebble beach at Llanrhystud for walks, fishing, picnics and kite flying. For true beach bliss, head to New Quay for Golden sands and turquoise sea. Hire a kayak and paddle out for a chance to see the dolphins, or simply relax on the Golden shore.
Nearby Aberaeron was recently voted the ‘Best place in Wales’. It features crabbing, local honey ice cream & excellent eateries. Aberaeron is becoming something of a foodie delight.
Enjoy a stroll around the harbour along Quay Parade and enjoy lunch at The Hive on the Quay. Alternatively try the award winning Cellar Restaurant and Bar, which was recently voted The Best Restaurant In Wales.
A visit to Elan Valley never fails to delight and inspire. A beautiful area stretching 72 square miles with historic landscapes and thriving wildlife.
The dams and reservoirs, the working legacy of remarkable Victorian engineering, add to the captivating and ever changing scenery. You can stroll, picnic or hike; cycle or mountain bike; bird watch, fish or safari!
Find traditional seaside fun in the historic market town of Aberystwyth. Wander along the promenade with an ice-cream, visit the busy harbour or head to the amusements on the pier.
A visit to Aberystwyth is quite impossible without a walk, jog or mindfulness moment on the mile long Victorian promenade. The seafront also boasts the oldest pier in Wales (it was built in 1864), which offers views over the ocean. Ascend the longest funicular railway in Britain, Aberystwyth Cliff Railway for spectacular views.
Devil’s Bridge has been a tourist attraction for over 100 years. Writers such as George Borrow visited here and wrote about it’s rugged beauty before the top bridge had even been built. There are no other bridges built like this in the world and worth seeing for yourselves.
“High in the mountains near Aberystwyth, there is a village where a very old bridge crosses a deep gorge. Above it are two other bridges built at later dates. But the lowest one….Well, they say that the Devil himself built it..”
VALE OF RHEIDOL
The Vale of Rheidol Railway re-creates the Edwardian spirit of adventure. Step aboard one of our restored steam trains for a stunning journey along the Rheidol Valley. Since opening in 1902, millions have enjoyed the scenic trip through the ancient woodlands to Devil’s Bridge, home of the famous waterfalls, nestled in the magnificent Cambrian Mountains.
Listen to the sound of a powerful narrow gauge steam locomotive working hard to climb 700ft (200m) during the 12 miles from Aberystwyth to Devil’s Bridge.

Bwlch Nant yr Arian Visitor Centre sits at the head of a dramatic valley and has commanding views of Cardigan Bay and the Cambrian Mountains. It is well-known for its long established tradition of daily feeding of red kites, Wales’s National Bird of Prey.
