610 233 Dolgellau


A town that’s going places. Its go-ahead attitude is reflected in an ever-improving range of local events and festivals, outdoor activities and places to stay and eat. But Dolgellau’s natural resources remain its number-one asset. The handsome, dark-stoned market town is set beneath Cader Idris, the legendary ‘Chair of Idris’, on the approach to the beautiful Mawddach Estuary. Call into the Ein Treftadaeth – Our Heritage information hub located in the Tourist Information Centre. Dolgellau is one of the handiest bases for exploring all of Snowdonia Mountains and Coast – but don’t overlook the many local beauty spots such as the aptly named Precipice Walk and Mawddach Trail along the waterside for 9½ miles to Barmouth (there’s a longer, more mountainous Mawddach Way too). Cycling and horse riding are also popular locally – Dolgellau is a specially chosen ‘Cycle Breaks’ centre with a fine range of road and off-road routes. The Coed y Brenin Forest Park is nearby, with mountain biking trails for all abilities plus a host of other outdoor attractions and facilities, including downloadable MP3 audio trails. Back in town, look out for performances held at Tŷ Siamas.
