Chose a calm day, free of any wind so as to give you the opportunity of capturing the reflections of the surrounding mountains in the water. You can get up to the lakes via a very steep road from Arthog or take the longer but more gradual route from Dolgellau town centre. If your legs are up to it, when combined with the Mawddach Trail, this route makes a lovely circular cycle ride from Barmouth. CWM ORDDIN: Latitude,…

Snowdonia in Winter

Tips For Winter Getaways in Snowdonia

Snowdonia in Winter is just as beautiful as in the Summer. Some might argue even more so. Snow capped mountains, rivers full of crisp ice cold water and miles and miles of deserted beaches. The towns also come into their own with festive cobbled streets, cosy cafes and pubs with roaring fires. Here are some of our tips for winter getaways in Snowdonia CONWY CASTLE AND TOWN Conwy Castle and it’s walled town were built under the instruction of Edward I as part of his conquest of the principality of Wales.

Caffi Castell Opens Its Doors!

Caffi Castell Harlech Opens its doors!

The August bank holiday saw Caffi Castell Harlech open its doors to a great reception! The cafe is part of the fantastic new information center directly opposite Harlech Castle. With lots of glass and metal, this modern take on the old hotel works really well and has given Harlech a great injection of life. The cafe has been taken on by my good friend Freya. But this article isn’t biased, honest! It really is brilliant. Ask anyone. 😉 So what to expect from a visit to the new establishment? Firstly the views are quite simply breathtaking. Not only are you up close to an incredible view of the castle, but the surrounding Snowdonia landscape is stunning. The food is all based on good, wholesome home-cooked fare which, where possible, is all made from locally sourced produce. The star of the menu has to be the fish platter which is a delicious mix of shell on prawns,…

Holiday Diary - Luxury Holiday Apartment near Betws-y-Coed

“Enjoyed our stay in your beautiful appartment, very comfortable and a lovely setting. Found some lovely walks and enjoyed our visit around the old town of Conwy. Good food at the Olde Shippe Inn and great sausages and steaks from the local butchers.” – Stuart and Janet, Cumbria During our first day we went to visit Conwy as we were staying so close to it. We hadn’t been to this area before so we weren’t quite sure what to expect, having only seen a few pictures of the castle and the surrounding area but it was a pleasant experience. I have to admit though, Britain’s Smallest House, on the waterfront did tempt us to visit first. As my wife put it, ‘it was very adorable’. The castle was even better if you love historical and heritage attractions like we do. We discovered that it constructed by the English monarch Edward I around 1283 as one of…
