Croeso i - Welcome to

Dolau Afon

Situated within the Cambrian Mountains and close to the west coast, the area offers a great many opportunities for exploration and adventure, from walking, cycling or touring.

Dolau Afon is set on a 3 acre smallholding which dates back some 200 years, which originally formed part of the Trawsgoed Estate.  We are a small, friendly, husband and wife run business, offering peace and quiet  to our guests. 


Stay in our lovely self catering  accommodation or camp on our family friendly touring and camping site, which is surrounded by woodland, forest and bounded by the river Ystwyth. We are  dog friendly and welcome motorcyclists. 

Take advantage of our complimentary fishing licence to fish from our riverbank, worm and fly only.


Please note: Due to Covid19, our cottage and lodge will not have the usual complementary tea, coffee, sugar, or my lovely home baked cake as a welcome for the foreseeable future (sadly).  We also no longer provide bedding, towels dish cloths or tea towels. We have taken these things away to better control the spread of the virus from guest to guest, and also to ourselves. We hope you understand.

For More information please visit our Covid 19 page.
