Independent Youth Hostel in the Cambrian Mountains


Dolgoch Hostel, Dolgoch, Tregaron, Ceredigion, SY25 6NR

Come and experience the peace of this unique location in the remote Tywi valley. A stay in this 17th century farmhouse will take you into an era before electricity, with a log burner for heat. Dolgoch is a traditional simple hostel owned by the Elenydd Wilderness Trust. It has hot showers, a self catering kitchen/dining room and 20 beds in 3 dormitories, solar powered showers and less able accommodation. Private rooms are available and the access track has been upgraded. The Lôn Las Cymru (Welsh National Cycle Route) and the Cambrian Way pass nearby and there are many other mountain tracks to explore on foot, by mountain bike or pony. The hostel is ideal for bird-watchers and lovers of solitude and is close to an old drovers’ track which leads over the scenic Cambrian mountains for 5 miles to the equally remote and simple Ty’n Cornel Hostel. Why not stay a night in each hostel and follow in the treads of the old drovers?
