Dol y Castell is a historic cottage, set in a stunning rural location in North Wales.

Only 6 miles from Betws y Coed the cottage invites you to indulge in walking, climbing, mountain biking, fishing, canoeing, bird watching or simply relaxing and taking in the laid back pace of Welsh country life.

Dol y Castell cottage lies a mile west of Dolwyddelan in the heart of Snowdonia National Park. The cottage is situated in a beautiful spot near the A470 halfway between Betws-y-Coed (North Wales’ main walking centre) and Blaenau Ffestiniog (6 miles each way). It lies at the foot of Moel Siabod, and is overlooked by the impressive 12th century Welsh castle.

The cottage also benefits from extensive enclosed private gardens with open panoramic views of the Lledr Valley. Across the valley is another notable building - Ty Mawr Wybrnant, the birthplace of William Morgan who translated the bible into Welsh in the 1580s. Walking, trekking, canoeing, tree-top climbing, mountain biking, golfing and fishing are just a few of the selection of outdoor activities available in the area.

There is an abundance of lakes, rivers, hills and mountains nearby and you can walk up Moel Siabod from the door at Dol y Castell. Popular attractions include the village of Betws-y-Coed and Swallow Falls, Conway Falls, Fairy Glen, Snowdon with its Mountain Railway, Dolwyddelan Castle and Llechwedd Slate Caverns at nearby Blaenau Ffestiniog.
