The Cambrian Mountains

Tyddyn Retreat is tucked away outside the village of Carno in Powys, Mid Wales, at the northern edge of the Cambrian Mountains. This region, while less famous than neighbouring Snowdonia and the Brecon Beacons, is a quiet, unspoilt gem of stunning, rich landscapes. It’s hard not to feel revived and uplifted as you breathe in the freshest of air and take in the timeless views of the surrounding velvety hills.

For those wanting to feel refreshed by being in nature, we think you have found your place! The Cambrian Mountains have no less than fifty Sites of Special Scientific Interest, and six European Special Areas of Conservation. 10 rivers including the Severn and the Wye all have their sources here. The landscape takes on many different shapes - the openness of the hills and heather moors, to small lakes and waterfalls and oak and willow woodlands. This area is overflowing with rare and wonderful flora and fauna, including red squirrels, beautiful mosses, wild flowers and curious-looking fungi
