Situated just north of Tregaron is the Cors Caron Nature Reserve, a 2000 acre peat bog split into three raised bog areas.
The River Teifi runs through the centre of the bog and the area provides an ideal habitat for all manner of flora and fauna. You could be lucky enough to spot an otter or two or even a polecat going about its daily business.
Due to the diversity of flora and fauna found at Cors Caron it has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), a wetland of international importance (Ramsar site) and a SAC (Special Area of Conservation) – a quick walk along one of the raised boardwalks will soon make you realise why. Just watch out for the jumping spiders!
There are a range of landscapes to explore at Cors Caron, these include – reedbeds, the River Teifi, streams, ponds, woodland and wet grasslands. There are also bird hides, a car park and public conveniences.
Places to eat and/or enjoy a drink nearby include the Llewcoch (public house) and Cafe Hafan in Tregaron or the Red Lion in Pontrhydfendigaid.
