Tregaron is a peaceful, pretty and ancient market town located at the source of the River Teifi and with the wildlife rich Cors Caron Nature Reserve and stunning Cambrian Mountains nearby; the perfect spot for exploring this lovely area of Mid Wales from your cosy cottage.
Once an important trade town for livestock heading into England, it’s now a popular destination for walkers, hikers and ramblers, while also hosting a number of events every year including the annual Eisteddfod every September, which is a great celebration of Welsh culture.
A traditional small, rural town, Tregaron is full of pretty cottages, old farm buildings and friendly, locally-run family shops and cafes. There is an old-fashioned town square that forms the focal point of the town and is also the place where the popular market is held.
Tregaron is definitely a walker friendly town, offering walks through the countryside with plenty of traditional pubs for the usual ‘pit stops’. The surrounding area is full of natural beauty and is popular for a wide variety of outdoor sports and activities. Every year in May the Bro Tregaron Walking Weekend is held; a festival that celebrates the ‘great outdoors’ so associated with this beautiful area.
Down by the river there are lots of great fishing spots, as well as boats for hire if you feel like seeing some more of the surrounding countryside. An incredibly peaceful and pretty chapel, Soar y Mynydd, sits just outside the town and is a popular place to visit.
To stay in the area see our Tregaron holiday cottages; a great way to explore and enjoy this charming part of Wales.
