Aberystwyth is a lively university town with a stunning beach and promenade, a wide range of shops, pubs, restaurants, supermarkets and other amenities.Devil's Bridge (Welsh: Pontarfynach, literally translating to The Bridge on the Mynach) has been a popular tourist attraction for centuries. Mynach translates to Munk and is a tributary of the river Rheidol.The bridge is unusual in that there are three separate bridges built upon each other. The most recent is an iron bridge (1901), which was built over a stone bridge (1753), which, according to the legend, was built by the Devil, as it was too difficult for mortals to build. The bridge is at a point where the River Mynach drops 90 metres (300ft) in 5 steps down a steep and narrow ravine before it meets the River Rheidol. The set of stone steps leading down to the lowest bridge at the waterfall are known as Jacob's Ladder.Nant yr Arain Visitor Centre, one of the premier Mountain Biking centres in Wales, is a 10 minute drive, where you can also watch the red kites being fed. Numerous walks and cycle trails start from Devil's Bridge and there are deep underground tours, fishing and a wind farm all within 6 miles.There are famous attractions and landmarks in every direction and the The Silver and Lead Mines at Llywernog (4.7 miles), Elan Valley (15 miles), Rhaeadr (18 miles) and Tregaron (14 miles) all offer great days out.Walking'Devil's Bridge and Waterfalls': A 6.5 mile circular walk taking in the upper Rheidol Valley, Ystumtuen and Ysbyty Cynfyn. 0.3 miles from cottage'Follow the Mynach': 6.5 miles following the river from its source to Devil's Bridge, where it creates the famous waterfalls. 0.3 miles from cottage'Discover Cefn Croes': A 7 mile circular walk through forestry to the Cefn Croes wind farm site, fantastic panoramic views. 2 miles from cottageThe Hafod Estate (owned by the Forestry Commission) offers 5 way-marked walks, of varying length and difficulty, enabling visitors to explore the famous Hafod landscape. 3.5 milesNant yr Arian Visitor Centre - 3 scenic walks. 5.5 milesCyclingRheidol Cycle Trail – This 17 mile trail leads you from Devil's Bridge, through the Rheidol Valley down to the harbour in Aberystwyth, mainly along quiet back roads and dedicated cycle routes. 0 milesNant yr Arian Mountain Biking Centre - one of the premier Mountain Biking centres in Wales.
