                                  THE HIDEAWAY - Devils Bridge Rail Trip

Devils Bridge Rail Trip

If you like steam trains and stunning scenery, or even if you are not so passionate about steam trains, this is a worthwhile day out.

From 'the Hideaway', this is a trip of about one and a half hours drive up the coast to Aberystwyth, passing through Cardigan and Aberaeron along the way. The coast route has spectacular views across Cardigan Bay for most of the journey.

At Aberystwyth you park at the new Vale of Rheidol station to catch the steam train to Devils Bridge. The trip takes about an hour and passes through wonderful scenery as you climb up to the Cambrian Mountains to Devils Bridge station.


At Devils Bridge there is the 'Two Hoots' cafe for a welcome snack and drinks before exploring The Devils Bridge, with the Punchbowl and Waterfalls on either side of the road. You need to be quite fit for the Waterfall and Nature Trail, as there are 675 steps!
