There are few better places for a pleasant drive than around the Pumlumon area of Mid Wales, and we have selected a couple of routes that gives you the perfect opportunity to take in the scenery and access some of the area’s attractions.
This route takes you on the west side of Plynlimon moutain, and across the Nant-y-moch reservoir dam.
From Aberystwyth, take the A487 to Bow Street, and on to Tal-y-Bont. Turn right in the village square and follow the signs for Nantymoch. After crossing the dam carry on to Ponterwyd and the A44. Turn right to head back to Aberystwyth.
If you wish to drive in the other direction take the A44 to Ponterwyd. Take the 3rd left in the village towards Nantymoch. After crossing the dam carry on to Talybont. Turn left onto the A470 back to Aberystwyth.
