Dolwyddelan sits within the Snowdonia National Park, in the county of Conwy, North Wales. The village, in the Lledr Valley, is renowned for both Dolwyddelan Castle, and for being the birthplace of the Welsh Prince, Llewelyn the Great.
The village is a peaceful location and is a popular base for hill walkers, climbers, canoeists, mountain bikers, anglers, and horse riding enthusiasts. Dolwyddelan straddles the banks of the Afon Lledr, and the stone bridge of Pentre-Bont unites the two communities. The village boasts a general store, the Spar Shop, a traditional pub, and restaurant, the Gwydir, and both a non-conformist chapel and an historic church. There are two hotels in the village, a Bunk House, and bed and breakfast and self catering accommodation can be found both within the village and on the hillsides nearby. Snowdonia's premier inland resort, Betws-y-Coed is some 5 miles from the village. Betws-y-Coed offers a wide variety of accommodation from luxury hotels to B and B's and a great selection of pubs and restaurants.
