Running from Betws-y-Coed to Blaenau Ffestiniog runs the A470, commonly known as the Crimea Pass (Bwlch y Gorddinan). The road follows the Lledr valley and passes through the village of Dolwyddelan, which is easily recognisable by the castle that is thought to be the birthplace of Llywelyn the Great.
Despite its small size, Dolwyddelan is very well connected as it lies on the A470 road and has a railway station on the Conwy Valley Line.
Besides the famous castle, Dolwyddelan has other notable buildings, of which Ellen’s Castle Hotel deserves a special mention. It used to belong to Baron Gwydyr.
