Experience Iolo Williams' amazing Wild Wales when you stay at Tynrhyd in the heart of stunning Mid Wales.

Whether you yearn to spot dolphins playing, otters busy at their dams, experience a petrified forest or amble through a Georgian Estate, this picturesque area has it all.

Nature Reserves

There are 20 Nature Reserves within Ceredigion managed by the Wildlife Trust of South & West Wales; these beautiful sites are within easy driving distance of Tynrhyd. Explore ancient oak woodlands, find the county’s largest tree, plant spot along maritime cliffs, marvel at thundering waterfalls and photograph flower rich grassland. 

Dolphin Spotting

The Ceredigion Coast is only one of two offshore areas in the UK the Bottlenose Dolphin calls home. A Special Conservation Area (SCA) stretches from Ceibwr to Aberarth. It also has grey seals, coral reefs and ancient sandbanks.

Get up close and personal and take an exciting dolphin spotting trip out to sea from New Quay. Or wait for a calm sea, with the sun behind you, look for seabirds fishing – dolphins and porpoises often join them.

Pine Martens

Visit the Pine Marten Den 1 mile away in Devil's Bridge and discover how the pine marten was saved from extinction and re-introduced to the Cambrian Mountains by the Vincent Wildlife Pine Marten Recovery Project. Take a peek at  videos of these beautiful animals in the wild, taken by motion activated camera's.

The Hafod Estate

Tynrhyd Retreat was once part of the Hafod Estate which was a popular tourist destination in the 1800's. Today you can explore five restored walks, take in the picturesque landscape, bridges, waterfalls and the Gothic church. 5 miles from Tynrhyd and dog friendly.

Bird Watching

At Tynrhyd we have seen Red Kite’s and very pale Buzzards, come and see what you can spot!

Hit the nature reserves or simply go for a walk and you will spot an abundance of feathered friends. Winter waders include Grey Plovers and Dunlins; summer waders Oystercatchers, Redshanks and Whimbrels. Love birds of prey? How about Kestrels, Peregrine Falcons and Osprey’s?

The Unusual

Petrified Forest, Borth – 5000-year-old forest revealed by storms in 2014. Said to have given rise to the legend of Wales’ Atlantis, the kingdom of Cantre’r Gwaelod, lost beneath the waves. Human and animal footprints and a walkway were also discovered. Eerie and atmospheric.
