You think wales , you think snowdonia and mount snowdon but there is so much more. One of my favourite places I’ve visited is Llanrwst, a small town. Along side the river there is a pretty little tea house. The thatched cottage is covered with climber plants. I was there around April and although it was still colourful I’ve seen pictures of it in autumn time where it’s glowing red. It’s a must for me to go back to see the autumn colours and of course Stop in for tea and scones.
Betws-y-coed has many walking trails near by. My favourite and not so well known is fairy glen. It’s no more than a 10 minute downwards walk through the woods, a little slippery underfoot. Once you are down there it’s magical. The river runs thought the opening in the woods and it’s a perfect picture moment. It’s very rocky but pretty and colourful as the trees lean over and shelter you. It’s so quiet and peaceful you can only hear the river and the rustling of the trees.
Up towards Holyhead we found a beautiful beach. Large and Peaceful considering it was close to a Holiday park with static homes and campers near by. On Talacre beach you will find a lighthouse when the tide is out, you are able to right up close to it. It’s a perfect place to watch the sunset.
Another beautiful lighthouse in wales is at ynys llannddwyn. It’s a fair walk right out to the lighthouse around an hour from the nearest car park. Its an hour walk along the beach and then you can walk right out to the lighthouse however, the lighthouse is almost on an island and you can only get on and off the island when the tide is out. So be sure to keep an eye out for the tide and insure you have enough time to walk back or you might end up getting soaked. There is nothing out this way so you need to take water and snacks with you
