ActivitiesThe famous gorge and 300ft waterfalls of Devil’s Bridge are less than 15 mins drive away. Or why not take the narrow gauge Vale of Rheidol Steam Railway (01970 625819) from Aberystwyth. You may not want to leave this handsome Victorian seaside resort in a hurry, laden as it is with bohemian shops and historic sites like Aberystwyth Castle. Take the Aberystwyth Cliff Railway (01970 617642) – Britain’s longest – for an unbeatable bird’s-eye-view of the town. The village of Cwmystwyth is just 4 miles away and home to the stunning Hafod Estate whose grounds offer one of the country’s loveliest walks. Bwlch Nant yr Arian Forest is also close by. Noted for its Red Kite feeding (information and times can be found in the pod), the forest is also renowned for mountain biking trails. Dogs are welcome to and the forest boasts a visitor centre and cafe.
Food & DrinkLocal produce hampers can be pre-arranged for arrival and free-range eggs are also available onsite (providing the girls are laying!). For daytrippers on the steam railway, Two Hoots Café at Devil’s Bridge station serves snacks and hot drinks and can even arrange buffet lunches for large groups (by pre-arrangement). The Hafod Hotel (01970 890232) boasts an extensive menu that ranges from light bites to hearty mains (you may recognise it from the hit BBC detective noir Hinterland). Recently renovated and under new management, The Halfway Inn (01970 880631) at Pisgah is a cracking no-nonsense boozer with a decent line in pub grub favourites. The George Burrow Hotel (01970 890230) and The Druid Inn (01970 880650) also come recommended by your hosts – the latter offers real ales and live music while the former is famed for its stunning views.
