Little village in an Alpine-style setting amongst steep, forested hillsides. Large craft centre in former woollen mill is a popular attraction. It’s an ideal touring centre close to two famous mountain passes – Bwlch yr Oerddrws to the north-west, and the even more spectacular Bwlch y Groes, the highest pass in Wales, to the north-east.
Visit Pont Minllyn, a narrow bridge crossing the Dyfi at Dinas Mawddwy built by Dr John Davies early in the seventeenth century. Also a good base for walking including eight new circular paths, fishing and mountain biking, with challenging trails in the nearby Dyfi Forest.
Also home to the Red Bull Hardline event which has attracted the world’s best and bravest downhill MTB riders.
