Cymer Abbey

Cymer Abbey

Discover Wales' history

You'll relish a lovely stroll around Cymer Abbey, where Cistercian monks were more than religious people - they were also sheep farmers!

Feel the grass beneath your feet and a breeze brushing through your hair when you discover the history behind this stunning place.

The peaceful surroundings offer the perfect environment for exploring the remains that survive.

Why not bring a picnic along to enjoy in the sunshine? And while you're there, admire the impressive great arched windows and the unusual tower too.

Be at one with nature

Hear the trickle of the water as it flows over stones and roots at the nearby Pont Minllyn.

This beautiful hidden bridge has miniature proportions, making it seem like it's come straight out of a fairytale.

Originally built for practical working purposes in the early 17th century, it's hard to believe this small moss-covered bridge allowed packhorses to cross the River Dyfi.

For the castle lovers!

We'd recommend seeing the wild and dramatic ruins at Castell y Bere, just 30 minutes from the abbey.

Step on to the ruined castle walls at this free attraction and discover the architecture which was extremely advanced for its time.

Not far away, you'll also find Harlech Castle, and you'll be surprised how intact it still is. Walk slowly up the hill to reach the medieval fortification which stands on a rocky knoll close to the Irish Sea.

Pre-book your tickets and time your visit just right so that you get to enjoy the stunning sunset and admire the rugged peaks of Snowdonia as a backdrop.

We're sure you'll have a wonderful day discovering all there is to see in beautiful North Wales.
