  • 4 out of 5
    We had a lovely 3 night stay at Garthfain with 2 adults, 2 kids and our dog. The house accommodated us very well and we especially enjoyed the evening sun on the patio. The village of Dolwyddelan is beautiful and the people in the local shop were very helpful and friendly. The location was a good base for all the area has to offer. We ventured up Snowdon and spent a day at Harlech and rock pooling at Landanwg beach.

  • 3 out of 5
    Its location is excellent with a very good convenient store near by. However, we felt the cottage is dated and needs deep cleaning (especially carpet).

Garthfain In Dolwyddelan Dolwyddelan

Dolwyddelan translates to “the Meadow of Gwyddelan” in English, with Gwyddelan being a 5thcentury saint who set up his preaching cross by the hill, close to where the parish church is currently situated. According to Welsh legend, Saint Gwyddelan travelled across from Ireland, and helped to restore Christianity to the area after the Romans left.

Dolwyddelan 2 Dolwyddelan

For a medium length walk through the lush green valleys of Snowdonia, you can’t get much better than this one around Dolwyddelan. Lasting around four miles, the walk is a lovely way to spend your day, and you can even have a bite to eat at the café.

Elen Castle 1 Elen’s Castle Hotel and Restaurant

When you are travelling through the gorgeous Snowdonia National Park, you will, at some point, need to take a bit of time for yourself to relax, unwind, and refuel with a nice, hearty meal. After all, you will likely be trekking through dense woodland, hiking up the sides of craggy peaks, and tromping your way through swampy marshlands. It’s only natural that you’ll work up an appetite!
