Dolgoch Bunkhouse: Facilities are in the main bunkhouse building

General

  • Isolated site in a wild location in the Cambrian mountains
  • Walks and bike rides of all levels all around the area
  • Indoor showers, toilets, kitchen and common room with wood stove

Walking and cycling, obvs. And spectacular scenery… such are the main draws of Ceredigion's Dolgoch Bunkhouse, an isolated site in splendid remote setting in the Cambrian mountains.

An extensive network of trails crisscrosses this land, of varying lengths for different levels of ability and all among viewsome and peaceful countryside. Several start straight from the site, and maps are available for guests. (And do look up for red kites overhead along your way…)

Dolgoch is a mile down a track off the road between Tregaron and Llanwrtyd Wells, about 20 miles from the abseiling, caving and heaps more hiking of the Brecon Beacons and 10 from the nearest pubs or shops.

All guests share the communal facilities of the bunkhouse, which include a kitchen, showers, toilets and a common room with woodburning stove. There's no electricity (and therefore no fridge or wifi) but there is some LED lighting.

Water is heated by solar panels: please note that during the winter the water supply is limited to avoid burst pipes.

    Just the drive there was so beautiful . Stunning views from our base down the valley. You get what's on the tin. No electricity , no Wi-Fi , no drinking water ( apart from boiled each day ). Very welcoming and we meet some lovely people from Holland and France. Wardens are very helpful. Common room was so cosy with the log burner glowing after a long day walking. My 16 year old son loved it. The fresh air, views and just being around nature. Just what the doctor ordered. Thank you all so much.

Many thnks for your kind review! Come again!

Local attractions

Whatever your level of fitness/laziness, you'll find a walk around here to suit.

Pick up a map from the bunkhouse and set off on your scenic way, such as around the Towy valley four miles away; along the Elan Valley Trail; to the most remote church in Wales at Soar-y-mynydd, or up the highest peak in mid-Wales at cairn-topped Drygarn Fawr. At the end of the bunkhouse drive, a path goes up to a mountain bothy and on to the monks' path to Strata Florida Abbey.

Quiet roads and plenty of tracks and bridleways are around for cycling too: the Lôn Las Cymru national cycle route passes nearby, as does the Ystwyth Trail which runs along the old railway line from Tregaron to Aberystwyth. Bike four further miles from the Towy valley to reach the 23-mile circuit around Llyn Brianne reservoir, or go mountain biking around the isolated Doethie valley before a pitstop at the popular Abergwesyn café.

Buses run every couple of hours from the nearest town Tregaron to Aberystwyth in one direction and Llanwrtyd Wells in the other. Riding centres are at the latter, to arrange day treks on horseback for all levels from beginners to experienced.

There's plenty more to pick from in the area as well as all this, such seeing the birds at the Red Kite Feeding Station and rehabilitation centre of Gigrin Farm, about half an hour away; watersports and caving at the Brecon Beacons National Park, or fishing for brown trout at Brenig river, running nearby through Tregaron.
