Dinas Mawddwy

Little village in an Alpine-style setting amongst steep, forested hillsides. Large craft centre in former woollen mill is a popular attraction. It’s an ideal touring centre close to two famous mountain passes – Bwlch yr Oerddrws to the north-west, and the even more spectacular Bwlch y Groes, the highest pass in Wales, to the north-east. Visit Pont Minllyn, a narrow bridge crossing the Dyfi at Dinas Mawddwy built by Dr John Davies early in the seventeenth century. Also a good base for walking, fishing and mountain biking, with challenging trails in the nearby Dyfi Forest.
