Cwmystwyth is a village situated on the B4574 in Ceredigion, Wales. The village lies among beautiful scenery some thirteen miles inland from Aberystwyth and four miles from Devil's Bridge.
The Ystwyth valley, or 'cwm', is one of the RSPB's successful breeding sites for red kites and the surrounding countryside is excellent for walking, fishing and pony trekking. The Ystwyth Valley is one of the most beautiful in mid-Wales and there are glorious walks alongside the river and spectacular waterfalls.
Devil's Bridge Falls, three miles from the village is a famous tourist attraction.
The sandy beaches of Cardigan Bay are just over half an hour away by car – or let the train take the strain and travel on the narrow gauge heritage railway from Devil's Bridge to Aberystwyth.
Adventure seekers will be spoilt for choice with the option of an on-and-off-road cycle trail, that cuts through the village en-route through the Cambrian Mountains to the Elan Valley Reservoirs, or else the Borth to Devil's Bridge and Pontrhydfendigaid long distance walk - again through the Cambrian Mountains.
Close by the village lies the Hafod Estate, owned by the nation and the Forestry Commission, where you will find a number of walks, for the less energetic amongst us, and all laid out to enhance the already dramatic scenery.
Eglwys Newydd, more usually known as Hafod Church, on the boundary of the Hafod estate is home to a carved oak screen – a memorial to the men of Cwmystwyth who fell during the Great War. Services are held in the church at 10-30a.m. on the 1st and 2nd Sunday, of each month.
