The Dolaucothi Arms BnB

The Dolaucothi Arms

In the rolling greenery of the Cothi Valley, nestled in the Cambrian Mountains, The Dolaucothi Arms Pub has been offering a warm welcome to locals and travellers alike since the 16th century.

Very little has changed since the famous Victorian traveller George Borrow visited. The beds in our rooms are very comfortable and the warmth of welcome in our two bars and restaurants is the same – although we would like to think that the choice and quality of food and drink has improved!

But don’t take our word for it, some 30,000 visitors and readers of BBC Countryfile Magazine recently voted us the Best British Country Pub of the Year 2019. Our beer garden has wonderful views over the valley and the rivers Cothi and Twrch to which the pub has fishing rights. The garden views are so wonderful, that they've been listed in Olive Magazine’s best 16 beer gardens in the country.

So, whether you are just passing through or planning to relax, fish, cycle or climb the mountains, you are sure of a friendly welcome from all at The Dolaucothi Arms – including our locals, staff, hens, our family of Pugs and even the rabbits.

" ‘I entered the Inn of the Pump Saint. The people were kind and attentive, and set before me a homely but savoury supper, and a foaming tankard of ale….in a large chamber, I found an excellent and clean bed, in which I enjoyed a refreshing sleep.’ "
- George Borrow, author of Wild Wales 1854
