Location

This ground floor apartment offers a private setting at the far end of an enclosed yard. There are 3 other small cottages for couples on site and from this cosy accommodation Devils Bridge and all its attractions are within a 2 minute walk. These include a café, pet-friendly village pub, Devils Bridge's world famous waterfalls and three bridges, Vale of Rheidol narrow gauge railway and some gorgeous walks. Surrounded by trees, mountains and a spectacular gorge, Devils Bridge is a beautiful, rural village, just 12 miles from Aberystwyth on the coast.

Amongst the best places to eat are Gwesty'r Hafod (100 yards), Half Way Inn in Pisgah and George Borrow in Ponterwyd (both 5 miles) and Y Ffarmers in Llanfihangel y Creuddyn. There is a garage and shop 5 miles away in Ponterwyd and a wide range of amenities and supermarkets in Aberystwyth (12 miles).

Devil's Bridge, at the head of the Rheidol Valley, is the terminus of the renowned narrow gauge railway that leads to the coast at the University town of Aberystwyth. Devil’s Bridge (Welsh: Pont ar Fynach, literally translating to The Bridge on the Mynach) has been a popular location for centuries. Its waterfalls and beautiful scenery are a great attraction and the unique three bridges built on top of each other, over the River Mynach, form the legend of Devil’s Bridge.

The area's spectacular landscapes and scenery are regularly featured on Hinterland / Y Gwyll; a ground-breaking, dual-language detective drama set against the stunning backdrop of west Wales. In addition to the attractions within walking distance of your accommodation Devils Bridge is also a central base for couples to explore the whole of Mid Wales' stunning countryside and coast.

Nant yr Arain Visitor Centre, one of the premier Mountain Biking centres in Wales is within a 10 minute drive, where you can also watch the red kites being fed. There are famous attractions and landmarks in every direction and the The Silver and Lead Mines at Llywernog (4.7 miles), Tregaron (14 miles) and Elan Valley (15 miles) all offer great days out. Also highly recommended is the stunning mountain drive to Rhaeadr.
