Ceredigion is a county and former kingdom in mid-west Wales. It is the second most sparsely populated county in Wales.
The Cambrian Mountains cover much of the east of the county, where five rivers have their source the Severn, the Wye, the Dulas, the Llyfnant and the Rheidol. The highest point is Pumlumon. Ceredigion's 50 miles of coastline boasts high quality transparent sea water and some fine sandy beaches.
