Dolau Afon Holidays
Campsite and Self Catering accommodation
A place to relax and unwind

Situated within the Cambrian Mountains, the last wilderness of Wales.  Set within an 'International Dark Sky Area' and close to the west coast.

Dolau Afon, a former 3 acre smallholding, which dates back some 200 years, and originally formed 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 - peace, quiet and tranquility is what we are about. 

Some of the many beautiful things about staying with us, is the bird song, the lovely morning sunrise coming up the valley and the sun setting down the valley, the wonderful walks that surround us, the site being sheltered and south facing and the river, where you can take a dip in the pool under the bridge. Just a few reasons for coming to stay.


Stay in our lovely self catering  accommodation or camp on our beautiful touring campsite, surrounded by woodland, forest and bounded by the river Ystwyth. We welcome families, solo  visitors, cyclists and motorcyclists, and we are dog friendly.  From our site, there are a many opportunities for exploration and adventure, from walking, cycling or touring and star gazing.  You might want to 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 possible, we have separate bins for re cycling waste.
