I live really close to there, just the other side of the Dyfi estuary! I
forgot how close until I reread The Dark Is Rising sequence recently and
reminded myself of the Grey King's location.
Did you see Castell y Bere near Craig Aderyn?
On a pedantic note, Susan Cooper makes a minor mistake in the Welsh in the
sentence which recurs in the book, the one which translates as "The
mountains are singing" etc.
