Ambrey holiday snaps – Cymer Abbey

Cymer Abbey, was a late 12th century Cistercian foundation. Located by a river at the foot of the Rhinog mountains, it was a daughter house of Abbey Cymhir, near Rhayader.

The cloisters of the abbey were never completed, and it looks like stones were robbed following dissolution and used for farm buildings immediately to the east.

Even though it’s now close to a small campsite (where the Ambrey van was parked for a night) it still retains a sense of tranquillity and closeness to nature that I always associate with Cistercian monasteries.
