PLEASE NOTE: The driveway down from the road to Dolgoch Mill Cottages is short, but quite narrow and quite steep. It is absolutely fine for most family sized cars, SUV’s and MPV’s – but the first time you drive down it you may find it… different!
We have had all manner of delivery vans deliver to our front door and our trusty, fairly low, Z4 tackles it fine. However it may not be to everyone’s taste so if you have any doubts, or are travelling in anything bigger than a ‘typical’ seven seater or have a very low or lowered car please contact us for advice before arriving.
Dolgoch Mill Cottages are located in a beautiful Welsh valley. Some of the access roads into Drefelin from the surrounding hills are therefore narrow, steep and have hairpin bends – some have all three! If you desire an easier route to Dolgoch Mill Cottages then enter Drefelin from the west by driving to Drefach Felindre first and then on to Drefelin or our postcode of SA44 5XB. If you are only used to city driving and want to start your holiday with something a little bit different then enter Drefelin from the east which will give you the chance to enjoy narrow single track lanes, steep hills and hairpin bends! You may also drive past the five single storey weavers cottages that date back to a time when the area was the centre of the Welsh woollen industry.
