Dinas Mawddwy


Wales is operating country-wide restrictions and is currently at coronavirus alert level four, with strict measures in place to limit the spread of the virus. Please check on the Welsh Government website before visiting or travelling to Wales or within Wales.


The village of Dinas Mawddwy, with a population of around 600, is located just off the A470 Machynlleth to Dolgellau road. Turn off the main road for the village and from here there is a narrow road that runs through Llanymawddwy and climbs very steeply up through the mountains to Bwlch y Groes, the highest road pass in Wales and onto Llanuwchllyn at the southern end of Llyn Tegid (Bala Lake); there is also a turn off for Lake Vyrnwy.

Meirion Mill is just outside of the village; it has a large gift shop and is at the site of the terminus of the Mawddwy Railway which carried slate from Minllyn and Aberangell to the main line at Cemmaes Road.
