The North Wales region

The whole region of Snowdonia is an adventure playground for Adults and Children alike.

Just 3 miles west of the village is the slate town of Blaenau Ffestiniog the new attraction of **Antur Stiniog** has developed four downhill bike trails that are attracting bikers from all over the country. Since opening in June 2012, over 6000 brave bikers have dared the trails. These super-fast flowing trails have rollers, jumps, drops and rock features as well as some of the best berms around

Zip World high-adrenaline attraction, based at Penrhyn Quarry, Bethesda. It involves Europe's longest zip-wire ride (it's over a mile!), with a guided tour taking in the local heritage thrown in for good measure.

The village of Dolwyddelan lies deep in the Lledr Valley and is most famous for its Castle, probably the finest example of a 'Welsh-built' castle left in Wales. The Castle built in the early 13th. century by Llywelyn ab Iorwerth ('the Great') has a square stone keep. The site was remodelled, initially by King Edward and then by the Victorians and is well worth a visit.

The location of the village makes it a perfect place from which to explore as there is so much in Snowdonia to be discovered. You can ride a steam-train to the summit of the highest mountain in England and Wales, or passenger on the oldest narrow gauge railway in the world as it winds its way through some of Snowdonia's finest scenery. You can find a rainbow beetle and a lily you won't find anywhere else on earth.

From the village you can easily reach Porthmadog and Port Meirion within 25 minutes and only another 15 minutes will get you to Llandudno, Caernarfon, Bangor, Bala , Llangollen, Conwy, or Anglesey to name just a few of the many places you may wish to visit.

The beaches on the nearby west coasts are as fine as any in Britain. At Black-Rock Sands you can even drive your car or park anywhere you like along the 2 miles of flat, wide, sandy beach with clear, clean shallow water over vast stretches of sand. Nearby Anglesey boasts one of the top 5 beaches in Britain.

Beside the cottage is part of an ancient Roman Road known as Sarn Helen. The part that is nearby, a true 'hidden valley', has to be walked to experience the wonder of this ancient place.

Betws-y-Coed

Snowdonia Is a huge adventure playground.

With new attractions being added all the time including the 1 mile long zip wire, Tree tops adventures, and Antur Stinog 4 bike trails and lots more all very local.

The village is small and peaceful with a Spar shop and village Pub.

Betws y Coed is filled with shops for the walker and climber, and hotels and bistro's for the hungry.

This delightful town, nestled among some of the tallest trees you will ever see makes for a perfect day.

Just 3 west of the village is the slate town of Blaenau Ffestiniog. The scenery on the short journey from Dolwyddelan will never be forgotten as it climbs up and over the 1,700ft. Crimea Pass to reveal the true wonder of man's industry, with the dramatic and awsome spectacle of the Ffestiniog Slate Quarries. The trip back to the village is equally stunning and is the best way to see Moel Siabod in all its 2860 ft / 872 m of glory.

Until recently the quarries at Blaenau (pronounced 'Blyner') were the most extensive slate quarries in the world with open pits & mines and over 25 miles of underground tunnels and caverns. The Llechwedd Slate Caverns are open to the public.

North Wales has always been the Mecca for rock climbing and one of the best short climbs in the whole of Britain is literally 'just around the corner' from the cottage.

North Wales is also renowned for its white water kayaking. The Welsh National Mountain Centre at Plas y Brenin is perfect for expert and learner alike. If you fancy a bit of White Water Rafting then the National Centre near Bala is where to go, everything is supplied.

North Wales is home to over 60 golf courses, many of them soaked in history as much as sea spray. There are world-class championship courses like Royal St David's, Aberdovey, Conwy, Nefyn & District and the Vale of Llangollen, to some hidden gems that you may hope will stay that way! Local courses are Betws Y coed 5 miles and Blaenau Ffestiniog 3.5 miles.

If it's mountain biking you're after, the Forestry Commission's Wales Mountain-bike Centre in Coed-y-Brenin forest is for you. Coed y Brenin was the first forest to be developed for the sport of mountain biking and to this day retains its reputation as the sports premier location. There are special Family Routes; however some of the other trails are only for the expert and the brave. All include rocky, technical features and are not recommended for novice riders. From tight technical single-track to fast open exhilarating sections, there's something on offer for all experienced mountain bikers to enjoy. The views are spectacular!The purpose-built visitor centre offers hot drinks, snacks, main meals, bike hire and a fully equipped shop. Well worth a visit!

For the latest thrill why not visit the Tree Top Adventure High Ropes Course. This is currently the highest challenge course in the country using the very best technologies in challenge course construction: It's a truly amazing experience. Go higher, reach further and achieve amazing results on this inspiring course. Situated in part of the beautiful forests around Betws-y-Coed the course is purpose built to challenge all.
