Dolwyddelan Castle

September 30th 2018

At the heart of Snowdonia, Dolwyddelan has the perfect location for outdoor pursuits, but did you know about its amazing castle !

Dolwyddelan Castle has a magnificent location in the heart of Snowdonia, on a ridge set against the rugged landscape of Moel Siabod. Built by Prince Llwelyn around 1220 it was the medieval stronghold of this Prince of Snowdonia. The walk up from the village is worth it for the view alone. Lledr House, in the village of Dolwyddelan, makes a great base for this stroll and for the many other outdoor activities available in Snowdonia.

Lledr House

October 28th 2017

..offers a warm welcome..

I don’t speak Welsh  so I must rely on the questionable resource of online translation services, but they assure me that Lledr – as used in the name of Lledr House Hostel – means leather. The Benny Hill contingent reading that will jump to their own conclusions but I wonder if it is used to describe the distinctive red cedar cladding used all over this large and amazing looking hostel. A former YHA hostel, like many of its brethren it is now independent and has been improved and renovated. 

Its sits in its own patch of woodland with a stretch of the river burbling past. The whole Valley is lovely and it is only a short stretch from Dolwyddelan with its castle guarding a precipitous crag.

Nearby, of course, are  the many attractions of Snowdonia – with Betws-y-Coed, stunning Llyn Elsi and Tree Tops high rope course particularly close. Whether as a traditional tourist or a rugged adventurer braving the mountains, Lledr House offers a warm welcome. Their mission statement cries out proudly on their wesbite: “To provide a budget, family friendly stay at our accommodation without compromise on comfort.”

And maybe a leather sofa.
