In the indescribable beauty of the Lledr valley lies the village of Dolwyddelan, a mere minute’s walk from the station.
A peaceful and unspoilt village, its little church of Sant Gwyddelan is well worth a visit. Inside hangs an old Celtic bell said to date back to the 6th century.
About a mile from the village on the main road is the imposing Dolwyddelan Castle. Built in the 12th century by Wales’ most powerful prince, Llywelyn the Great, it guarded a strategic pass through his mountainous kingdom from Meirionethshire to the Vale of Conwy.
Dolwyddelan is the perfect start for a walk whatever your level of fitness.
