Area of Astounding Natural Beauty
The Cambrian Mountains rise up in the very heart of Wales, a place where hills, river valleys
and meadows have sustained life for millennia.
Surrounded by the counties of Ceredigion, Powys and Carmarthenshire, and encircled by three national parks, this is a landscape which is steeped in Welsh history and heritage, and where agriculture, language and culture are entwined.
On a clear day, from Pumlumon Fawr (2468ft/752m), where the River Severn and Wye rise, the Llŷn Peninsula and the highest peaks of Snowdonia can be seen to the north, the summits of the Brecon Beacons to the east, and the Preseli Mountains and the full sweep of Cardigan Bay to the west.
World-class stargazing, rugged mountain peaks, and thrilling biking and hiking trails. Welcome to the Cambrian Mountains, a place of wild and wonderful landscapes. For curious visitors, this is the place to come for a unique adventure with open spaces and welcoming places.
