The village of Dolwyddelan is situated on the A470 about halfway between Betws-y-Coed and Blaenau Ffestiniog. It lies at the foot of Moel Siabod, in the beautiful Lledr Valley, and is overlooked by the impressive 12th century Welsh castle.

Lleolir pentref Dolwyddelan ar yr A470 tua hanner ffordd rhwng Betws-y-Coed a Blaenau Ffestiniog. Mae'n gorwedd wrth droed Moel Siabod, yn Nyffryn Lledr, ac mae Castell Dolwyddelan, a adeiladwyd yn y 12fed ganrif gan y Cymry, yn edrych drosto.
