Many people are attracted to Dolwyddelan by its tranquil atmosphere, in the village there is a village shop and inn as well as a 15th century church, Saint Gwddelan’s. Walkers are spoilt for choice, with the picturesque Lledr Valley, in which Dolwyddelan is set, boasting some truly wonderful scenery and a wide variety of paths and tracks suitable for both walking and cycling.

Undoubtedly one of the most popular attractions in the area is Dolwyddelan Castle, which occupies a prime position high on a ridge, deep in the heart of Snowdonia. Originally built in the 13th century, the castle boasts great views over the rugged landscape of Snowdonia National Park, which is worth the admission price alone.
