Tregaron lies near the mountainous source of the river Teifi and nestles at the southern end of Cors Goch Caron, a huge red-tinged marshland that is a National Nature Reserve and famous for the variety of birds to be spotted here, including the rare Red Kite.

To the east of Tregaron lies mile after mile of heathered upland, once the haunt of Twm Sion Cati, the Robin Hood of Wales. This is one of the last great unspoilt upland regions of Wales.

Six miles north of Tregaron, near Pontrhydfendigaid lie the ruins of Strata Florida, the Cistercian Abbey, founded in 1164, that was once the Westminster of Wales and where so many of our native Princes are buried.
