Dol mur Goch is approximately 1 and 1/2 miles from the charming village of Dolwyddelan, and 5 miles from the popular inland resort of Betws y Coed.
Dolwyddelan village can in no way be described as being busy, consisting of  just 4 or 5 streets of stone cottages stretched out either side of the Afon (River) Lledr and nestled in the shadow of Moel Siabod. The village Pub, the Gwydir, has good beer and a reasonably priced restaurant. It is not a large Pub with just the one room for the Bar and another for the restaurant / lounge, but you will find locals and visitors alike, including climbers, walkers and workers, all congregating in the Gwydir. Across the road from the Pub is the Spar shop  (Tel: 01690 750237) with a wide selection of groceries, household goods, drinks, newspapers, indeed all the provisions you need for a self catering holiday.

The Post Office, next to the Pub, also stands in as a Tea room, and offers View of Dolwyddelan villageanglers the chance to get their fishing licences for salmon fishing in the Afon Lledr. There is also a small hotel Ellen's Castle that as well as offering accommodation also serves beer and meals in the Bar.
The population of Dolwyddelan consists of a mixture of local residents, the majority being Welsh speaking, and visitors staying in the ever growing numbers of holiday cottages. The village is in the heart of Gwynedd, the last bastion of defence for the Welsh language so don't be surprised to find that Welsh is the first language for many people.
I almost forgot the jewels in the crown of the village, Dolwyddelan Castle, and the Railway Station, You will find plenty of information on the Castle on the other pages on the web site. But the Railway Station although maybe not as well appreciated offers guests staying at Dol mur Goch the option to travel up and down the Conwy and Lledr Valleys from Blaenau Ffestiniog at the top to Llandudno on the coast. With the cottage being just five minutes walk from the Station at Pont y Pant guests also have the option to catch the train for the two mile trip to Dolwyddelan, or the five mile trip to Betws y Coed.

If you prefer  a wider selection of restaurants and pubs then Betws y Coed is just 5 miles away down the Lledr valley. Betws y Coed is the most popular inland resort in Wales, with beautiful riverside walks and a great choice of restaurants. Probably the most popular is the Stables Pub and restaurant with a choice of bar meals, al fresco  or restaurant. There are many more attractions in Betws y Coed including new mountain bike trails through the Gwydyr Forest. and the railway museum at the Railway Station. Which leads us to the other option for travelling from the cottage to Betws y Coed. Pont y Pant Railway Station is just 5 minutes walk from the cottage and the train stops at regular times throughout the day giving guests the option to leave the car and catch the train either to Betws y Coed or head further afield to Conwy, Llanrwst or Llandudno, the top seaside resort in North Wales.
