Dolgoch Hostel

Abergwesyn, Ceredigion, Dyfed, SY25 6NR, Wales

Experience the peace of this unique hostel located in the secluded Tywi valley in the heart of the remote Cambrian Mountains in Wales. A stay in this 17th-century farmhouse will take you into an era before electricity. The location is also a dark sky discovery site with access from short un-surfaced track (1 mile) to large flat areas for observing.


Dolgoch Hostel is a Dark Sky Discovery Site, an officially recognised place where anyone can stargaze. Most such locations have overnight parking (sometimes with a fee); however, many do not allow overnight camping. There may or may not be toilet facilities.

Stay & gaze - this location benefits from dark skies, relatively low levels of light pollution, is astronomy friendly and suitable for stargazing breaks. If you visit and find that the location is not dark sky friendly please let us know!
