The Elenydd Hostels Trust, which operates two hostels in a remote area of Wales, is delighted to announce that their grant application for £82,000 to improve the structure and amenities at Dolgoch has been successful!
The European Union has awarded the grant as part of the Ceredigion Rural Development Plan via the Welsh Assembly.
Improvements to Dolgoch over the next 3 years will include structural repairs, some changes to the interior of the building and the addition of disabled accommodation. Everything will be done sympathetically to maintain the unique character of the place. Major repairs to the access track are high on the list of priorities, and this will be good news to visitors who need cars to visit this beautiful but difficult-to-reach valley.
As far as possible Dolgoch will remain open during this period and any periods of closure will be kept to an absolute minimum.
The Trust is pleased to acknowledge the expertise and tireless hard work of their funding officer Pearl Chalk, without whom none of this would have been possible.
