Out and About
We are situated just off the A5 near the village of Cerrigydrudion. We are literally at the gateway to Snowdonia! Betws y Coed is a mere 12 miles away. The mountains of Snowdonia are about 20 miles away and can be seen from the end of our drive.
Just up the road are the reservoirs of The Alwen and The Brenig, both great places for a variety of outdoor activities.....walking, sailing, wind surfing, fly fishing, bird watching, cycling etc. There is an excellent adventure playground and cafe at Llyn Brenig.
A ten minute walk from the cottages will take you to The Dragonfly Fisheries, garden centre and cafe. You can catch your own trout for your dinner!
The White Lion Hotel in Cerrigydrudion is the centre of our local entertainment with music there most weekends.
Glan y Gors Go-Karting track is but a mile away and proves to be very popular with many of our guests.
Adloniant Maelor has just recently opened in Cerrigydrudion. It has a small cinema, photographic studio and cafe (wonderful homemade cakes etc) .
