• Unspoilt Countryside and Beaches
The Dyfi valley includes the westerly spur of Powys, Ceredigion north of Aberystwyth, south Gwynedd and the southern rim of Snowdonia National Park. The valley contains a wealth of natural attractions: The long Tarran escarpment gives a marvellous view of sea and hills from the north side of the estuary; the beautiful Aran mountiains at the head of the valley; Snowdonia offers some of Wales's most breathtaking scenery; the estuary area has been designated as Wales's first biosphere reserve by UNESCO.
After Machynlleth the Dovey river widens into a spectacular estuary. Miles and miles of wonderful clean sand. On the south shore, Ynys-las is vast, wild and abounds with shells and sea birds; Aberdovey, on the north shore, is perfect for families and sailors; an unspoilt seaside village.
The Pennant valley, with its steep wooded slopes above Llanbrynmair, is a striking example of a captured river, the rest of the valley is a fascinating range of peat bog, moorland and deciduous and coniferous forestry, where many outdoor activities are available.
