Croeso i - Welcome to
Situated within the Cambrian Mountains, the last wilderness of Wales. We are situated within a dedicated 'Dark Sky' area and close to the west coast, the area offers a great many opportunities for exploration and adventure, from walking, cycling or touring and star gazing.
Dolau Afon is a former 3 acre smallholding, which dates back some 200 years, and originally part of the Trawsgoed Estate.
We are a small, friendly, husband and wife run/owned site, offering a rural retreat in spectacular and beautiful surroundings.
Stay in our lovely self catering accommodation or camp on our family friendly touring/ caravan/motorhome and tent campsite, which is surrounded by woodland, forest and bounded by the river Ystwyth. We welcome families, solo visitors, cyclists and motorcyclists, and we are dog friendly.
Take advantage of our complimentary fishing licence to fish from our riverbank, fly and spinning, worm only.
We make every effort to be as ecologically sensitive as we can be - we have separate bins for re cycling waste. And, in addition to our flushing toilets, we also still have our dear little composting toilet which we are very fond of.

Explore the forests, valleys and hills of the Cambrian Mountains whilst relaxing and enjoying the spectacular scenery, there is so much to see. Our beaches and coves are delightful and the wildlife is amazing: from red kite, dolphins, seals and osprey to pine martin.

We are privileged to have 'Dark Skies' and twinkling stars, The area is designated as an international Dark Sky Park.
You can catch a show at the Arts Centre or fill your face with popcorn whilst you watch a film either in The Commodore Cinema or at the Ars Centre on the University Campus.
Not only have we all of the above, but we have Sustrans National Cycling route 81 and the Ystwyth Trail on the doorstep including - on site - fishing rights courtesy of Llanilar Angling Club (Worm and fly only). from our river bank.
