Dolgellau is a market town in North Wales, on the banks of the River Wnion. You’ll find it at the southern end of the spectacular Snowdonia National Park, at the foot of Cader Idris Mountain.
With a hire car your stay in Dolgellau will be all the more memorable. Not only will renting a car allow speedy access from the airport if you are flying into the UK, but you will be able to tour around an area of outstanding natural beauty at your leisure.
Expedia offers the possibility of booking your hire car in advance, which minimises hassle at your chosen airport or vacation starting point.
A rental car will transport you to Dolgellau from Liverpool or Manchester Airports in around two hours via the A494; from Cardiff Airport along the A470 it is approximately three hours.
If you fly into the UK, before you make the onward journey to Dolgellau in your hire car, you could stop off in the nearest city, whether it be Liverpool, Manchester or Cardiff with all the unique attractions each has to offer.
Dolgellau is located in the most beautiful mountain region, so it would be a wasted opportunity not to explore it. Make the most of your rental car with this mission in mind.
Otherwise, the drive to Barmouth and its sandy beaches is under 20 minutes. Or how about a trip along the A487 to the Centre for Alternative Technology at nearby Machynlleth?
