The Lledr Valley (Welsh: Dyffryn Lledr) is a valley in Snowdonia in North Wales. The valley runs from the Crimea Pass to a point at the confluence of the rivers Lledr and Conwy in the Conwy Valley.

The valley is defined by the towering majesty of Moel Siabod to the north (which at 872m is the highest peak in the Moelwynion mountain range) and by the lesser hills of Mynydd Cribau (594m) to the north east, Y Ro Wen (345m) to the south, and Moel Dyrnogydd (524m) to the west.
The valley is flanked on both sides by a mixture of rough grasslands and the woodlands of the Gwydir Forest. The A470 (North Wales to South Wales road) follows the line of the valley. As does the Conwy Valley Railway line from Blaenau Ffestiniog to Llandudno with stations at Roman Bridge, Dolwyddelan, and Pont-y-Pant. Don't expect the train to stop however - unless you stick your hand out!

Dolwyddelan is the main settlement in the valley with an ancient castle, Dolwyddelan Castle; an historic church, St Gwyddelan's; a pub, the Gwydir; a store that stocks almost anything, the Spar shop; and a hotel, Ellen's Castle. There is also a small number of properties strung out alongside both the railway line and the A470.

The river Lledr, which gives its name to the valley, meanders along the valley floor until it reaches the gorge at Pont-y-pant from where it tumbles until it joins the River Conwy close to Beaver Bridge at the south of Betws-y-Coed.

With such attractions in the Lledr Valley it is no surprise that the valley is popular with the walking fraternity, but unlike its close neighbour Betws-y-Coed the valley is never too busy, and indeed one can often walk the hills and trails around the Lledr valley while seeing no one other than Larry the lamb and his woolly friends.
