Red Lion - Pontrhydfendigaid (Bont)

The RED LION in Pontrhydfendigaid (abbrev. 'Bont') is a traditional rural Welsh hotel and public house in the heart of one of the most picturesque villages in  the rural county of Ceredigion, Wales.

It has spectacular views over the  nearby Cors Caron Nature Reserve and across the Cambrian Mountains - it is an ideal "get away from it all"   holiday retreat for all the family, especially walkers - as several trails pass close by.  Mountain biking is a favourite too.

The Red Lion overlooks the River Teifi which is renowned as one of the best Salmon fishing rivers in the U.K. For bird-watchers it is the ultimate location as it lies in the heart of the Red Kite country and only a short distance from the famous Tregaron Red Kite Centre & Feeding Station. The surrounding mountains and rolling countryside offer excellent walking, cycling (on and off road) and fishing. There are also numerous sites of historic interest within close proximity.

 Pontrhydfendigaid is especially known for the ruins of the Cistercian Strata Florida Abbey, founded 1164, where one of Wales' most famous poets - Dafydd ap Gwilym is buried and Llywelyn the Great held council.

Bont lies on the western flank of the Cambrian Mountains, and is located between Devil's Bridge and Tregaron. The village lies on the River Teifi, the source of which is just 5 miles (approx 8 Km) to the north east at Llynnoedd Teifi (Teifi Pools).
