The West Wales/Pembrokeshire region
Wales is a place of natural beauty and diversity. The north east of Wales features some traditional seaside towns and spectacular views and is a great place to stay. The West coast has some great coastal walks and lovely sandy beaches to discover. Surfing and dog walking is popular in this area. The north west has highlights including Mount Snowdon and the Isle of Anglesey in this magical part of Wales; you will find a break here relaxing or if you fancy going for a climb then it would be adventurous. The south coast of Wales has sandy beaches but also the benefit of access some of Wales' largest cities including the capital Cardiff. The Brecon Beacons are full of steep mountain escarpments, waterfalls and spectacular views. In mid Wales you will begin to discover the appeal of the Valleys. And finally, Pembrokeshire has jagged coastlines, secret bays and some of the finest coastal towns line this area and you can see why people return every year to holiday there.
The smallest university town in the UK with a population of less than 3,000; outside of Oxford and Cambridge, Saint David's University College is the oldest degree-awarding institution in England and Wales. The Norman castle of Pont Steffan occupied a strategic position beside the River Teifi; it was destroyed in 1187 and the remains of the castle later became the foundations for a college building that still forms part of the university campus.
In the C18th Lampeter was an important gathering place for the Drovers who gathered herds of cattle and sheep to be walked all the way to the markets of south-east England. Today it is still an agricultural centre and Farmers Markets are held on alternate Fridays.
South-east of Lampeter at Pumpsaint is the site of the old Roman Dolaucothi gold mine which is now managed by the National Trust; visitors can obtain a firsthand glimpse of the conditions in which gold miners worked in those times.
