Cambrian Mountains

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.
